My hair is so long now that I don't know what to do with it.

Willow90:  I would like to know as well. My hair isn’t quite to my elbows (a few inches away) and exactly the same – thick and straight and boring lol. AND I want it styled the same way you do for the wedding!

I usually end up with it all down or all up in a messy bun. I don’t know lol

I personally love long braids and ballerina buns 🙂

i would kill to be able to grow long hair. mine grows to about my shoulders, and tends to break. If I had long hair I would be constantly putting it in different kinds of braids. braid headbands, fishtail braids, messy braid bun etc.

You could twist or braid and clip parts back.

I know it might be a pain on a daily basis – but just let me say: You.Are.So.Lucky!

I am trying, trying, trying to grow my hair long, but it just won’t cooperate! I agree with FutureBride625 about long braids and buns!

amandajane4949:  right?!?!

I had the same problem except mine was to the bottom of my breasts. It felt like a long mop, I was doing ballerina buns sometimes with my fringe braided and pinned. I got married on Saturday and got my hair cut into a shoulder concave bob length with blonde highlights yesterday. Such a big change but I was so excited to cut it.

learn different braids, buns, experiment with hair accessories, hats, and maybe some clip in extensions until the wedding.  long hair is such a wonderful thing to have, you are very lucky 🙂

Willow90:   I wear my hair in a simple braid and have for over a year now.  I started wearing it like this when I got pregnant and just got over dealing with it.  It is now down the middle of my back and I probably should go get a trim soon.  It’s getting a little out of hand.  This takes not even five minutes for me (since I’ve done it so long and since I know how to style it).  I don’t do anything else to it.  Sorry it looks so odd – I cropped out my daughter.

I have hair I can sit on.  Braids or putting it up are my go to, it’s out of my way and not getting damaged.  I love Flexi 8s as those hold everything. Or spin pins if I’m going plain.

DF usually does a plain English braid or ponytail. His hair is past his elbows.

My hair is long, thick and a tad confused… I can put it up in a clean ‘bun’, off my face in about 5s. If you need a lot of hold I would recommend the 4 strip rather than 3, because at a certain point long hair just won’t…stay.

I have the same issue. My hair is about an inch or less away from being waist length, and very fine. I have lots of hair, so it doesn’t look thin, but because the hairs themselves are fine it’s sometimes difficult for me to get pins and such to stay in place. 

Also, my problem now is that I’m too lazy to do elaborate and nice things in the morning. So my go to is left as it is, ponytail, or a french or dutch braid.  But I’m definitely chopping it off around shoulder-length as soon as I can after the wedding 😛

I had hair down to my butt crack. The struggle for hairstyles is real! 

My go-to style is this: I tease the hair at the crown for some lift. French braid the front part of the hair halfway down the side of the face, then continue with a regular braid. Do this for both sides of the front of your hair until the braids can meet in the back. Use a rubber band and attach in the back giving lift to the hair at the crown.

I get so many complements every time I wear my hair that way.
