    Oh I feel your pain!  I’m almost 6 ft and skinny and everything always looks so BIG on me – big earrings, necklaces, veils, EVERYTHING!

    Right now I’m going with a sleek, straight ponytail or a low messy bun OR the half up, half down thing.  I think the half up/half down alleviates the big head syndrome that we currently “suffer” from 🙂

    I have the same issue! Tall, thin, and small head! My sisters used to call me “smallhead.” I have long hair that i usually wear down to avoid the pinhead look you referred to. But my dress has a keyhole back, so the half-up half down thing wont work for me. I’m still on the hunt for an updo that will make my head look bigger. 🙂

    ah- I totally have the pinhead syndrome as well!  but I definitely want an updo so I am trying for a low, tousled look to keep some volume…hopefully =)

    I don’ have this situation, but both my sister and SO do! I Don’t think it’s a bad thing though and I agree that wearing your hair down or half up is the best.

    Can I just say how much I’d prefer little head versus big head!? I have a massive head/face and I always feel self conscious about it :/

    I wish I did! I have a giant head and have to have big hair just to balance it LOL

    @Craigshappygrl:  Me too.  Plus I feel like my face and head is bigger than my Fiance’s…makes me really self conscious.

    I feel so relieved to know I’m not the only one! The problem with me is that besides being tall and having a small head, it is also very flat in the back. Half up half down, low or high buns and almost any hairstyle often accentuate the flatness and make the back of my skull look tiny and my face and my jaw look huge I hate it! I’ve read that short bobs help create the illusion of volume on the back of the head but then I read that short hair on tall women can make them look even longer and the head even smaller. I need help urgently! I’m also in the search for a hairstyle that helps create balance for my wedding!
