I did a halfback and just used bobby pins to hold some curls back, and left a couple strands out front. Did my own hair since I wanted to leave my natural curls.

My hair is curly/ wavy/thick and I did a low side pony with a braid and veil for ceremony and flowers for reception:

I’d suggest wearing an updo so you don’t have to worry about it frizzing

My hair is very, very curly.  The level of frizz and pouf varies hour to hour.  I plan on having it 100% in an updo so I don’t have to worry about it or give it a second thought that day.

I plan on doing an updo as well so I don’t have to worry about frizz or anything. My hair tends to “grow” larger and larger as the day and night wear on, so  I don’t want to worry about it. As a side note, my stylist recently told me that everyone with curly hair should use sulfate free and paraben free shampoo, and I have to tell you, the difference is pretty amazing! My hair is shinier, less frizzy, and not as dry. You ladies should give it a shot!

Regarding what MattieK mentioned about sulfates, I completely agree. I haven’t used sulfates or silicones on my hair in years and I no longer experience the typical curly hair difficulties. I’d highly recommend researching the Curly Girl method and/or stop by naturallycurly.com if you’re interested in the idea.

I’m getting a stylist to do mine.  Seriously, I NEVER have a stylist do my hair, and I think it usually looks pretty good.  I’ve done updos on myself as a bridesmaid, I even did a friend’s hair for her wedding…but I refuse to take the chance that I’ll wake up on my wedding day with a really bad hair day. 

A good stylist can do a lot with your hair if you bear in mind that no stylist is a miracle worker.

Also, try to have your hair in as good a shape as possible before the wedding.  I only use shampoo once every 2 weeks or so for clarifying, and wash with conditioner the rest of the time.  Before I wash, I put oil on my hair and leave it there for an hour or so.  I never use a blow-dryer.  For styling products, I just use a dollop of aloe vera gel with a drop or two of jojoba oil in it.  Sounds crazy, I know…but my hair is so much happier than it used to be!

I’m doing an all updo so that I don’t have to worry about it. One less thing.

To answer the question, I did an updo. I can’t stand it when my hair sticks to my neck because I’m sweaty, and I knew that I would be hot and sweaty in my dress, so I chose to pull it up. Wedding day

But on another note, I third the suggestion that you start getting your hair healthy now. The curly girl handbook is great for helping you understand your hair and what it needs/doesn’t need. I use the DevaCurl product line. It’s sulfate-, paraben-, and “-one”-free. It’s been 95+ degrees with 60% (or more!) humidity here in MD for weeks now, and my hair simply does not frizz. All I use is every day is conditioner and 2 squirts of hair gel. That’s it.

Every day

I can’t directly answer your question but I want to recommend deva curl products to anyone with curly hair. Seriously, I never have frizz anymore and my curls are so much prettier. Can’t recommend it enough! You can find it at ulta or order online. 

Edit: @lovekiss just saw your recommendation–glad you love it too!
