    @mrsztobee:  My everyday look is the Victoria’s secret look, I want an updo for once damnit!

    Ive found that if I do a low bun I won’t get a huge headache halfway through the night (like even a low pony will do) so that’s what I’m going with.

     

     ETA: just took this picture, sorry it’s sideways but I’m on my phone :/

    Mine was half up/half down.  My hair is so freaking thick and wavy.

    I had half up, half down. She secured the “up” part with a very small rubber band, and maneuvered bits of that hair to cover itself up. There were also a few strategically placed bobby pins to keep the general flow of the hair going the correct direction.

    @mrsztobee:  well day to day I use those new no-pull hair bands. I can’t remember what they’re called but a client used to bring them to me since she buys them in bulk. I’ve seen them in Target, they look as if the end is tied. I just twist my hair around itself cinnamon-bun style and if I wrap it tightly it won’t budge. It’s kind of held up by its own weight, doesn’t hurt my head at all. I’m not sure how I will be securing it for the wedding but I imagine it will be similar logistically. I’m going to start hair trails soon so ask me again in about a month lol

    I won’t post a photo of my hair in it’s natural state but because it is so thick/wavy/unruly I will be doing an updo. My hair isn’t super long but it’s long enough, FSIL is a stylist so we’re going to be doing some test runs to find out what works.

    I have very thick straight hair and everytime I want a simple updo, it ends being 3x bigger than I want because of the volume.  I’m doing pulled back in a loose “messier” type look and none will be pinned up.

    What about doing something with braiding or a side ponytail/braid? When I do an updo, it typically requires some sort of braiding to keep it all in place.

    How have you ladies been finding stylists? I’ve had two trials, and neither of them knew how to work with my curls..

    My hair is crazy curly but when I’ve had updos in the past it has helped to use braids or sometimes they straiten the front a bit to keep things from getting frizzy. No idea what ill do when I get married lol I don’t think hairties will give you a headache unless they are super tight

    @sablemuse:  sock bun? that was my go-to with my long hair.  Kept it in place, and it’s soft because the hair is tucked into the bun donut thing.  no pins = no headache!

    For my civil ceremony this week I’m probably doing a bun. However for my wedding I’m paying someone to do my hair. My hair due to low dose chemo has thinned the last 3 years. However its still twice as thick as most of my friends and its to my hips. Make sure you find someone who knows how to handle long heavy hair. Actually go into the salon and show them your hair. I’ve had people tell me on the phone they could do it to find out no they cant. This is why I actually go in to make my appointments then if they go so sorry I just cant do that its ok. I find Indian salons are usually very good with this type of hair and wedding up dos. If you live ina  culturally rich area you might want to start their first. I get my updos done at one, and I have my hair hennaed there (which its about 4 months over due for :/)

    My half up/half down style started with a hair tie. No way all my hair was staying up with just pins. The only time it was uncomfortable was when my MOH stepped on my veil during our ceremony as I was walking and nearly yanked it off my head 🙂

    When we did my hair trial, we put it all up, and my stylist actually used 2 or 3 different hair ties to start it.
