Good question! I also have long, very thin hair (picture of me in my avatar) and want to wear my hair down/curly/wavy. I am considering gettting hair extensions for length and body, my salon in Philly does this.

Lion’s Mane – I’m haven’t gone for my hair trial yet, but my sister gets her hair done by Marcus Aman and their website says they specialize in extensions. I know it’s a little pricey, but hey it’s your wedding day, you know?

My hair is thin (and layered – which make is even thinner) so what I did was have it curled like crazy on my wedding day to give it more volume.  I looked into hair extensions but it would have cost a lot… but I guess if you’re ok with paying the extra money, hair extensions are a very good idea.

You could always get the clip in extensions made with real hair.  You can curl them and straighten them and all that jazz…plus the best part is, you an take em out and use them again whenever you want (to help justify the cost of them).  I got mine two years ago for a friends wedding, and since I’ve taken care of them, I was able to use them last year for another wedding and a few other times for bachelorette parties (and just I want to feel glamorous days!)

I recently asked my hairstylist what I should do for my wedding hair since it is also straight and fine. She suggested growing it to right past my shoulders (anything longer looks stringy and limp for me). She also suggested that I buy a hair piece at sally beauty so I can have the low bun I want.

I think hair extensions may be best if you want your hair down, but they can be really expensive too! I am not going to try to have my hair down with or without extensions because I know my hair won’t hold body well.

Looks like I will have a hair piece and low bun! Good luck and I understand your frustration!

As long as you work with a good stylist, they should be able to make it look great down. My hair is really fine and thin, too, but my stylist can magically make it look… not. Too bad I can never get it right at home!

There are a lot of great tussled updo’s now…you can tease the front and back to get the volume needed, and then put it up in a quick, flirty updo.  I like the not-so-put-together look too and have fine hair…that’s probably what I am going to do for my wedding.

It doesn’t look like your hair is totally thin, girl!! I also have pretty thin hair..but I am definitely going to wear my hair down!! I’m not a big fan of it up, so I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂 I’d do a trial run with your hairstylist to see if you like the way she styles it..if you do, then I’d go for it!!

If your looking for something more casual and are worried about it staying curled I would maybe go for a more Loose Looking updo. The Traditional updo in your prom picture is cute but I agree with wanting something more casual. I’m in the same boat and I’m thinking of doing something like these…..

Sorry If these are pictures of anyone reading this…. I got these pictures offline as inspiration picturs. Let me know if you’d like them down..
