How did it hold up?
I really really hate the look of stiff hair full of hairspray. But with Asian hair it is so fine and smooth for an updo I feel like I will need it.
I want to obtain a “messy” look and tried that for my last trial but within 2 hours it was falling apart.
What did you do??

Hi, I am not Asain, but I used to do hair.
I would recommend getting a thermal wave process done or embracing your beautifully straight hair.

I’m planning to do half up … because there is no way my hair will hold if it was all down, like FI would like it. I’m hoping that the part that’s down can maintain some body in it (since it’s not going to be as weighted down)

Have you tried products that make your hair “dirty” like After party or pomades? I would also recommend a ton of teasing and hairstray in the teasing. I haven’t had my wedding yet, but for high school dances, my stylist would tease the crap out of my hair. It would be painful to wash out, but the style lasted ALL night.

Kerstase has a great volumizing treatment (you can only get it done at a salon and it’s about $20) that makes your hair thicker and more textured so it holds styles better. I had it done a week before my wedding and it really helped to hold a curl.

My hair will hold a curl perfectly, but at my trial last weekend, the updo was beginning to fall down as soon as I got home. By the end of the day it looked ridiculous! When I took out the zillions of bobby pins, though, I had gorgeous curly hair that lasted the next day too.
One thing my stylist told me was to work gel through my hair the night before, when it’s still damp from being washed, then blow dry it. I’m going to try that and see if it helps my hair stay in place.
I’m also going to call the stylist before the day-of and see what she recommends…
