I kind of like this hairstyle in the first pic, but my hair never holds curls good, as shown in the last 2 pics…..I was maid of honour for my friends wedding…that’s the hairdresser curling it, then thats how it ended up by the time the ceremony started
Should I just forget about it and do a complete updo? Anybody have pics of updos that cover pointy ears?? lol

I think that looks good, still! My hair doesn’t really hold a curl either, so I think the trick is to overcurl it and use good products.
Actually, my friend (who is Asian, as am I) just got her hair permed at Vietnamese salon, and it looks awesome. When I think of perms, I think really curly hair, but hers just looked naturally wavy. I might have to try it myself, although the thought does make me nervous!

I have stick straight hair, and trust me, a good stylist can make it work! I couldn’t believe how curly she made my hair before she put it up! I’ve never been able to get my hair to curl like that! And it stayed up (and curly) all night, and actually, even after sleeping, the curls were still there! You just need a stylist that is very good at updos! 🙂

@Chartreuse – I have the same kind of hair, and have had an updo as a bridesmaid that was similar to the top part of the first pic you posted. It stayed all day because the hairdresser not only curled my hair beforehand, but then looped each curl and secured it with bobby pins. So the curls looked like curls, but were really loops. Then she hairsprayed it like crazy.

I have very very very stick straight hair, but I would do some research as to what hairspray works for you- because a good STRONG hairspray can make a big difference.

My hair is exactly the same way! I can super curl my hair and 30 minutes later it’s completely straight. I’ve found a couple products that will help hold it for almost 2 hours, but not very well. I’d like a similar style to the first photo you showed, so I’m hoping my stylist has some magic hairspray!

That’s just my problem… so I’m getting an updo! It’s something special, because I always wear my hair down.
I think an updo is even better for a summer-wedding (when it’s hot) and for dancing (’cause it stays better in place).

A curling iron really isn’t going to do a whole lot. I would suggest going to a salon and having them try wet rollers – they wash your hair and use a strong potion (fingerwave or something similar in strength), roll your hair, and plop you under a dryer until it’s completely dry. You would have better luck with that. You can curl with a curling iron and all the hairspray you want, but usually with natural stick straight, silky hair it won’t last more than an hour or so.

My hair is like this but luckily my sister is a hair stylist. She taught me to curl my hair with a straightener instead of a curling iron and the curls actually stay in my hair! It is worth a try.

Count me in with the stick straight hair girls. The best curl I’ve gotten has been either Mattel’s suggestion of letting your hair actually dry and set in curlers, or flat iron curls suggested by MtgBride. I do flat iron curls at least once a week and I can sleep on them for 2 nights and STILL have curls the 3rd day. The difference is that the flat iron actually presses the “curls” in and is actually straightening it in a bend, different from curling. All that being said, for my wedding I’m most likely going with an updo to avoid flat hair by the end of the night. Good luck to all my straight-haired sisters!

My hair is dead straight!! I’m doing an up do, only cause its a destination wedding. But have you ever tried pin curls??? On dry hair, you take sections of your hair, big or small, use a curling iron, take the curl you made and pin to your scalp. Do it the night before, sleep with it, wrap a cloth, bandana. You can also do it couple hrs before your wedding. I garantee you’ll have last longing curls. I hope you understood my explanation. My fiancee is a hair stylish, and he does thai on me all the time. Good luck!
