I have fine hair that tangles easily, too.  I love my triple barrel weaver.  My suggestion is this (because it works so well for me):

  1. Wash and condition hair
  2. Towel dry
  3. Add Tresemme moose to your hair. Coat hair evenly from root to tip.
  4. Comb hair with wide-toothed comb.
  5. Blow dry your hair
  6. Curl your hair in sections (starting always with the bottom, obviously)
  7. Hair spray the section you curled before letting down the next section
  8. Don’t over spray it! Just spray it.
  9. When all is done, you can finger the curls to break them up a little then  you can re-spray. (Again, I recommend Tressemme hairspray).

Good luck!

@meetmethere2013:  I use a waver in my real life all the time. Mine looks like the one here: http://www.buy.com/prod/babyliss-pro-nano-titanium-deep-wave-iron/235846272.html?listingId=234194496

I bought it at Target though, I think, a few years ago. I use it whenever I want curls but, like you, my hair doesn’t hold curl for shit. 

Isn’t it so annoying how hairstylists think that spraying more will actually do anything? You just end up with a gross hair-helmet. Ugh. 

Usually, in my daily life, I wave my hair when it’s a little dirty. I think it lasts longer and looks more beachy. I rub some corn starch into my roots so I don’t look like a greaseball (and it’s not goopy, smelly and gross like dry shampoo). The style lasts all day/night and is easily retouched if some of the waves start to droop.

Here’s a pic–sorry for the low quality bar pic– couldn’t find a good one!  (I edited out my friend- didn’t have permission to put her pic up!)– my friend on the right also used the waving iron (on clean hair). We both have thin, fine hair. 

I think that’s the route I’ll take on the big day as well. I’m excited to see if anyone else posts actual wavy-haired  wedding pics, too!

@meetmethere2013:  Yeah, corn starch for sure. I use it all the time, especially because I’ve heard you’re not supposed to wash your hair everyday, but I don’t see how people can do that without looking greasy. You just have to learn how much is too much for your hair (or you’ll end up with white roots, haha!). 

I’m torn about the hair thing myself. It’s so easy to wave it on my own, and I know how much product is too much, but I get that it’s my special day and I should pamper a little, ya know? I like the idea of practicing with a stylist. 

Good luck, and congrats! I’m sure it’ll be beautiful!
