Would cutting it be an option? Maybe even getting layers put in could help the weight? If you’re set on that particular style.

I have thick heavy hair and have never been told by my hair dresser that she can’t do something with it..

Is it possible to find a better stylist? Or, as PP mentioned.. Getting a good cut would help. Thinning it out and adding some layers would make it lighter.

If not, I’m wearing my hair down in loose waves, but pulling half of it back in a clip. Would that work? That way its down, but pulled back to show your straps..

sparklebeeirl: How about half up? I have thick hair and had this style.

sparklebeeirl:  I second PP.  I just had a haircut 2 months out from the wedding per my stylists suggestion, and I had them take out some weight and put more layers in.  It’s great!

I have thick bra-strap length hair as well.  I’d find a new stylist.  Thick hair is harder to put in an updo, but a stylist should be able to do it without resorting to cutting or thinning your hair.  They should be able to do it, they’ll just need stronger pins, clips, etc.  Anytime someone mentions “cutting the weight out of my hair” I run like crazy.  I like it to look thick!

do you have a pic of what hair style you want? i have really thick hair too and for me it hurt too much to put it up. I got my hair cut short and my hair ended up looking exactly how i wanted without the pain!

I have long, thick, wavy hair.  My stylist is doing an updo for my wedding.  I have also never been told that it was too thick to style up.  I would seriously just try and find someone else.

I think your inspiration picture should be totally doable, they just can’t rely on thin bobby pins alone.  It frustrates me that a stylist would only know one way of doing something, and if you don’t fit into that one way, you would have to change yourself for her.  No, she should have to change her methods!  Sorry if that’s harsh.

Here are my favorite inspiration pictures, but they’re pretty different from the look you’re going after.

I have thick hair and long (down almost to small of back), but I’ve not worn it up alot as I prefer how it looks down. The last time I wore it up to be in a wedding they braided it. That might be a solution to help hold it in place better. It makes sense to try a different stylist. I have so much hair (and since I prefer it down) I am thinking for my wedding that I am going to have them sweep it to one side of my neck in cascading curls and maybe some braiding.

sparklebeeirl:  I wore my hair in a similar style but with more loose pieces when I went to prom years ago — I will try to find a photo of the hairstyle and post on here tonight when I am home from work. For reference, my hair is super thick, curly, and at the time was slightly longer than yours. If you find another stylist, they should certainly be able to pull that off.
