I just went for my trial last week and actually wanted something quite similar to your pictures, although not exactly the same. I am now stuck with deciding on a new style for my second trial as the briad look just didn’t work with my fine hair.

I often braid my hair myself for everyday wear but it just can’t make the type of braid suitable for a wedding. And I don’t want to put extensions in either. I don’t have any advice, just wanted to sharr my experience.

Hope you come right, please post pics of your trial when you go.

I have fine hair, and I suspect you’re going to need a super talented hair stylist to make a braid like that with fine hair, but one thing we did a lot in the film industry was braid an extension into the hair instead of clipping it.

I mean, it would be pinned in with Bobby pins or with a hair clip, but not at the top of the head, but rather where the braid starts. With these styles, whennthe braid starts higher I’m not sure how that would work- but what this does for fine hair is bury the clip in by not having it on top of the head, and nestles it into a thick bunch of hair. 

By the way, love your dress!

I have super fine hair – like yours is gets all horrible near the ends when it gets to a certain length. I have purchased some clip in hair extensions and plan on doing this. I kid you not, I will be doing rainbow hair for it! I say go for it. I’d love to be all natural for the wedding, but it’s just not feasible!

Clip in at the crown. 🙂 Oh I wish! It’s my inspiration! I will be bleaching my hair to match my extensions, then dying my hair & extensions funky colours sometime towards the end of January just incase something goes wrong & I have time to rectify it and get used to the extensions! Plus, I’m getting very itchy about dying my hair. I can always let you know how it all goes if you’d like? Or would that be too short notice for your July wedding? 

I’ve contemplated hair curled down the side and round, hair up and a fishtail braid. For all of those ideas I’ve envisoned extensions as I just don’t have enough hair! I keep always going back to the braid. 

Me too!
