Can’t decide between up and down hair. I LOVE the look of big curls, either all down, or half up, but am skeptical that they wouldn’t fall out and just be a stringy mess by the end of the night. I’m having a professional stylist do my hair… and my hair usually holds curl well, but I also sweat a lot… and will probably be sweating a ton that day!
Married Bees, how did your “down” hair last?

I decided for a down-do because my DH really liked my long hair, and my hair down. I have horribly fine hair that never holds a curl when I curl it myself. I have tried several different methods.
I had tight curls (that I didn’t like) for my hair trial. They stayed in really well. I even went kayaking for an hour later on that day, and they stayed really well until I washed them out. I don’t leave my hair down a lot, and suprisingly I didn’t mind my hair down when it was in a really tight curl.
For my wedding day I requested more wavy curls. I mostly wanted them to stay in until the reception. Those didn’t stay in as well, but I thought my hair stayed in okay until the reception.

@PolkaDotLaceBride: You are lucky your hair holds curls! My hair doesn’t hold a curl worth a crap. LOL you could always opt for an up-do for the ceremony and maybe either down or half-up do for the reception. I am not sure hot the stylist could do this but I am sure it can be done. I am wearing my hair in an up-do though I never wear my hair up because my hair doesn’t hold curls. I would also think wearing it down would depend on the level of humidity where you are getting married at. I know humidity is not nice to hair! LOL

After actually going through my wedding day, i can’t imagine having my hair down. I was so hot all the time even with my hair up. I would have melted for sure with hair on my neck.

I’m doing an updo because my hair does not hold curls well, at all…

I wore my hair up and was glad I did because I ended up being so hot throughout the day!

I have the same issue and fine hair… I’m doing a side pony of some sort and probably adding clip in extensions: inspriation (last is another bee)

I wore my hair down with curls and by the end of the night they were still fine. If you’re really worried maybe bring a curling iron so one of your BMs can do slight touch-ups for you.
