Ultimately, you have to be comfortable! If you want to cover your shoulders but you are worried about your neck getting sweaty, maybe a side swept down do would work for you? It can cover one shoulder but also be kept off your neck. You could even do a side ponytail or braid if you like that kind of style.

In terms of getting the style to hold, curls stay better on hair that isn’t totally clean. Try to style your hair a day or so after you’ve washed it. Dry shampoo also helps with this. Investing in a quality curling iron like the one from Sedu (available on has worked wonders for me. You can also try to coil the curls back up after you curl them. You can pin them to your head while they cool or put them on velcro rollers. Your hair sets while it’s cooling, not while it’s hot. That’s the key. 

Have you done your engagement pics yet? Maybe try to wear your hair down and curly to see if the style holds while you get your pictures done. That’s what I plan to do because I’m having the same up/down dilemma. You could also try to find some down hairstyles that use straight hair. You can’t go wrong if you use your natura hair texture!
