So, I am finding lots of great hair inspiration pics, but I am afraid most of them won’t work well with my hair. I think I want it all up. Do you have any ideas for hairstyles that work well with very fine, long hair that doesn’t hold curl at all? Thanks!

I’m not sure what kind of look you’re going for, and most of the photos I have saved probably wouldn’t work for your hair. I don’t know if you have seen this one or not; it looks like it might work for fine hair and there are no curls for once! 🙂
I will look through my pics and update later if I find any more!

I have the same problem with my hair being fine. I want a tousled wavy updo, and my hair stylist reccomended purchasing a few human hair extensions to help hold some curl. It sounds expensive, but im only going to purchase a few clip in’s to add to my own hair. They can also add some product that will help give your hair a little more texture so it holds curl better. Im not sure what type of hairstyle you are going for, but this was the advice given to me for waves/curls in an updo.

Will you be doing your own hair or going to a stylist? If you’re going to a stylist, I think it’s crucial to find one who understands fine hair! My hair sounds just like yours. Hairdressers I used to visit would blow dry it straight and I would leave the salon with the flattest, most unflattering hairstyle you can imagine. One day I found my current hairdresser and I swear she revolutionised my whole look! I use the Kerastase Volumactive shampoo, conditioner and styling products and they make a visible difference. My hairdresser cuts clever layers in it to give it volume, but the key is the way she styles it: volumising mousse all the way through, blowdrying with a huge round brush, and then she teases every section of hair and uses hairspray to hold it. Teasing is key! You have to backcomb each section and spray each section from underneath. Then you just brush the top of your hair to smooth the top layers.
If your hairdresser preps your hair like this, you can achieve almost any style as your hair will have much more volume and hold from the roots through to the ends. Also, there’s a special Kerastase volume treatment I’ve heard about which you can have done just before a blowwave to really amp up the volume. I haven’t had it done but it sounds great. Good luck!

My sister’s hair [and mine for that matter] is like that, fine, long, and completely disobedient. She had her hair professionally done in a low, sort of locks into a bun/updo thing. It was very nice, sort of whimsical but not ‘over the top’ or ‘out there’ and it even looked simple [despite it taking the hair dresser like 32472358723857hours].
here is is from the side:
[not the best angle I know, but it’s the only pic I can find on this computer that even shows it!]
Sounds great right?
Thing is, my sister said because of all the product the hairstylist had to use [hair spray, mousse etc etc] to keep her hair in place because of it’s fine-ness that her hair ended up being severely damaged and a lot of it fell out too after the fact.
So I would just err on the side of caution and maybe go with something requiring minimal styling, unless you’re just chopping your hair off after.
