At that length, you’re going to have trouble finding an upstyle that won’t be too heavy and fall down over the course of the night. Particularly if you are planning on doing it yourself. How does your hair hold curl?

I’m a professional hairdresser so I might have a few suggestions.

orrr a messy fishtail braid?

@shortie1848: Ahhh okay. If you’re getting it done it will be much easier to get it secure. I agree with the poster after me; I love the look of a big, luxe bun. You wouldn’t need the “sock” part if a pro is doing it.

I personally love the look of a side-swept bun because I think it looks softer and more contemporary than a classic bun. Here are some examples:

@shortie1848:  i’m sure a professional could figure out a big bun with your hair. the fact that your hair is long/thick would make it even better…. you don’t NEED the sock.

@shortie1848: The girls in the photos don’t have bangs either, and have what I would consider to be small-ish foreheads. I don’t think there’s a particular bang or forehead type necessary for that style. The hair is just swept over from a side part. If they do have bangs, they are pinned up with the rest of the hair.

I love the idea of of giant, dramatic sock bun style updo.  With all your hair, you won’t need the”sock” enhancer most do!
