Mine didn’t hurt that badly.  She might have pushed some of the pins too far into the updo.

I’ve had several updos, and usually just grin and bear them. My hair is super fine and takes a lot of bobby pins – I think the record I pulled out was 75? – so I usually take some aspirin before getting the updo, and make sure to have some champagne on hand throughout the night. ๐Ÿ™‚

ah, wedding dresses are pretty big – you can fit a flask under there somewhere!  that is why you have a Maid/Matron of Honor, to help you out!

good luck with the ‘do.  I bet you can find some different hair inspirations online, though.  Maybe with a little braiding or some other method they can relieve the pressure for you.

Hmm, nope, I didn’t have any pain with my updo. The only discomfort I had was when I took it down after being up all day, but every girl experiences that. My hair is also super thick, and she had to cram a ton of pins in my ‘do, and it still wasn’t painful. or maybe I was too excited to notice?

Oh my, no! It didn’t hurt at all at any time. One of my top priorities was being comfortable enough to enjoy the day – and that held true for my dress as well. I don’t think up-dos have to hurt.

Mine wasn’t painful. By the end of the night though, I was just tired of it being up.

My hair is long and curly also (mid back length), Some of my updos for balls and that have been uncomfortable, but not so far as painful. I did wonder though if part of it is the weight of your hair? Mine is certainly a bit of a maul, I wondered if yours was kinda heavy too, it might not just be the pins. Would you consider a half up do? show off some of your curls and the length? Might hurt a little less ๐Ÿ™‚

Not really… I didn’t feel any pain while it was up, but it WAS heavy. Once I started pulling out all of those pins… that’s when the pain started!!

Mine wasn’t painful.  There were a TON of bobby pins in it, though.  I spent about 10 minutes pulling them all out, which my husband thought was hilarious.  If it was painful, you might want to try another trial in a different style.  You don’t want to be in pain during the wedding, you know?

Mine wasn’t painful, but for sure irritating, and my head definitely hurt when I started trying to take them all out, haha.  I could NOT lay down until each pin was out of my hair.

No pain for me, but I had a very loose updo. My trial was painless (I even slept in it to try to salvage it for the next day when I’d be able to see then-FI lol), and the actual day wasnt either (the hair ended up being different both times, kind of to my disappointment-I liked the trial better). I don’t even remember pulling the bobby pins out to be too painful, but there were a TON of them (and since I didn’t have any before the wedding, I kept them and now have a nice little collection lol). Personally, while I think the look is important, there is no way I’d want to be in pain on my wedding day and I’d try looking for something else.

Oh no!! I totally didn’t think of this.  Right now I’m planning on doing a low side bun a la Mrs. Cowboy Boot, so hopefully that won’t be too painful.  But hey… nothing is going to stop me from having the wedding hair that I want, not even a little pain.  My hair NEVER behaves, and this is one of my only chances to have my hair all done up and pretty by a pro.  Asprin here I come! ๐Ÿ™‚

It hurt a little, but not as much as yours. I hurt a LOT when I took it down after 18 hours of it being up though. And my hairdresser used two entire packages of bobby pins!
