I currently have a little past shoulder length hair, but it is pretty thin. And for the second year in a row (it happened the same time last year) it is coming out like crazy. I compare it do animals that shed for the summer heat 🙁 But my question is, does anyone know if my slightly longer than shoulder length hair will work for these styles? And how about thickness? Does my hair have to be really thick for these hairstyles to work?
If interested, you can see my hair in our engagement picture post here. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/our-engagement-picture-sneak-peek-pic-heavy
Or if any bees with thin hair could post their own wedding hairstyles 🙂

I want to do a hairstyle very similar to these. I’ve been told it might be a good idea to have hair extensions put it, not only to add length but also add some volume. Right now my hair is about shoulder length and I plan on letting it grow out until our wedding next April. My hair is pretty fine so even though I will probably have the length I’m still thinking the extensions might be a good idea so there’s more volume. I’d love to hear what other bees have to say

@mrsmbeegee: Yeah I’ve been told about extensions too, but they are a little pricey, and we are on a pretty tight budget.
Any other bees have any thoughts? Or any bees with thin/fine hair that care to share their hair pictures 🙂

@lindsayandchris09: We have the same first name AND the same hair. Mine is fine, shoulder length and falling out like crazy. It always does beginning of summer. And your hair inspirations are what I want to do with mine. I’m going to Sally’s tomorrow to pick up some hair extensions for added fullness and a little length. After I get them, I’ll post a picture and let you know if I think they’re worth it.

Extensions help a lot. I got them in and it’s such a difference between my first and second trial.
If you can’t afford fusion ones – get clip ins. You can even make them yourself.

I have a little past shoulder length hair and my hair girl sewed my updo in:) She curled it with a wand than with thread and a plastic needle made it into an updo in about 40 min. total!
For our e pics!

The bottom left picture in the collage style section was my inspiration photo. I had hair just about to the crook of my elbow, and quite thick. I certainly think it could have been done with thinner hair, as they put a regularly wrapped chignon inside to try to crunch up some of it and get it out of the way.
My sister has pretty thin hair and was one of my bridesmaids, and she went with this inspiration pic and it turned out pretty exact. My computer’s not letting me upload pics at the moment, but here’s a link

Half my inspiration pics are the same of yours!
I just went through our “plan” with my darling hairdresser a few weeks ago. My hair sounds just like yours and we are going with pretty much the same do. I’m on a plan to grow it out and neaten up the ends (where I used to have heavily bleached hair) so it will be in tiptop shape and a bit longer by the time my wedding comes around.
If you really want more volume in there, I recommend some clip ins just for the actual bun part. You can get some bargain ones and they look great in when the stylist does them for you.
