Get human hair extensions and you can treat it like your hair. Maybe clip ins and are nice option.

Clip-ins do work with thin/fine hair and they do curl. I say both from experience, I used them on my wedding day 🙂 Just make sure they’re human hair. I didn’t know what kind to get so I had my hairstylist buy them for me in advance to match my haircolor, but I’ve seen several threads here with suggestions on which brands are the best. I loved my extensions! I also wore permanent individual ones for 1.5 years, but they’re very expensive and high maintenance, really not worth it for just one day.

@babycakes27: If you’re going to do the clip-in extensions, make sure they’re 100% human remy hair. If you want more longer lasting (2-3 mo. without maintenance), I highly recommend micro-links. I’ve had them in my hair for about 2 years and they don’t damage my hair at all. It costs more up front (buying good quality hair and the install) but they do look the most realistic and maintenance is a breeze if you go to someone who obviously knows what they’re doing. If you just want an updo, there’s a really great brand of quality synthetic hairpieces- SoHo- that are simple to use- you just twist it around a bun and it looks very realistic.

i have shoulder length hair and have just bought my hair extensions.  i bought human hair and a full head cost me £30  ($50)

although my hair grows fast, i wouldnt be able to have the hairstyle i really want without the length. 

here is a link to the hairstyle i will be having,  but my hair wont be quite so long….as i think her hair is too long for me.  my extensions are 18 inches.     hair extensions were used on the lady in the video too.

I have the clip-in human hair extensions from sally beauty. They were $90 for a set and I got two. This was 8 years ago. And I still have them. Ive dyed them, curled them, cut them, blow dryed them, and straightened them. If you have thin hair, you can tease your hair right at the scalp and it helps to hold them in longer (altho they stay in long without). I will say that the very first time they are used, they tend to look fake (for the brand I used) but after, you can’t tell the difference. Theyre great, and with the clip-in, you can still use them after the wedding and do them yourself.

@beeautifullife:  I have the same ones, only one set, got them for $80 three weeks ago at Sally’s.  If I keep my hair straight, then one set isn’t enough.  If I curl the extensions and my own hair, then the one set is just enough to add length and volume.  I LOVE them.
