I have fine blonde hair so I know how you feel. I’m getting extentions for the wedding so that I can have an updo. I feel your pain!

ok my hair is uber fine and shoulder length and it can be put in a curly updo 🙂  So I would think yours could do this with more curls if that makes sense

I have super fine hair too, and I find that as long as they pin each curl individually, it stays up really nicely! Unless you get extensions, I would avoid leaving your hair down. If it’s anything like my hair, it will be flat after a couple hours. I have seen this happen to brides and it is not a very flattering look at the reception!

I have fine (med/longish) hair too!!!  I will be doing temporary extenions on my wedding day too.  I just always envisioned myself with my hair down and in soft curls.

Judging by what I can see in your pic, we could be hair twins!!! Mine is very long, but also super fine and thin. Talk about luck, huh?


I’m somewhat fortunate that my hair does hold curls well despite the length, but I know the only way I’ll ever feel happy with a “down” style on my wedding day (which is my preference) is to have extensions. I’m intending to invest in some good quality clip in extensions so that I can wear them for special occasions after the wedding too.


I’ve seen what can be done with good extensions and they look great. My only problem then is getting some volume on the top of my head, so I will probably have to consider some sort of half up do just so that I don’t get my dreaded flat top in the first 30 minutes.

I have got really fine hair and was certain i’d need extensions but it is amazing what your hairdresser can do.  I could have got far more volume but asked her to tone it down a bit and she made a fancy roll at the back.  On the trial she did a cool plaited bun which also looked great.

Mine is long and flat and fine and doesn’t hold a curl – my hairdresser curled it, pulled it to the side and pinned each bit up into a really loose messy bun. That held pretty well!

I have long, really fine hair, too–I can never do anything with it, it never stays put. Suggestions:

1. Get a good stylist. They can do amazing things. It may take half a can of hair spray and a million bobby pins, but my hair for prom was like a rock all through a hot, sweaty dance.

2. Use a style where there can be a lot of anchors (like bobby pins). I find that updos work pretty well–I’m partial to a French twist look, because you can bobby pin it to hell and back and use little clips in addition.

3. Buns will make it look like you have almost no hair, if your hair is like mine.

i have really fine hair as well that will not hold curls for dear life but with enough product and bobby pins my hair held – plus my hair dresser curled my hair with a flat iron which completely amazed me and they stayed all day.

here was my inpsiration pic – note: swifty has really long naturally curly thick hair.,,,

mine isnt as long – probably a little below my shoulder, stick straight and fine. but here is how it turned out 🙂 i was happy with it

My hair is long, fine (and naturally brown, though I dye it auburn).  When I try to curl it myself, the curls don’t last.  But the few times I had professional up-dos done, they help up really well.  Hair spray and a ton of bobby pins will do the trick if you find a stylist that knows how to work with fine hair.  Individually pinned curls with maybe some little decorations in between can create the illusion of having thicker hair than you actually do. I wouldn’t leave it down because then you risk it going limp in the heat.  Avoid buns too because to get them to hold up if your hair is slippery like mine, you’ll have to make them tight and small.  

This is the picture I showed my stylist and she said she could do a slightly smaller version of that in my shoulder-blade length hair.  It’s similar to what I had done for prom:

I have long (mid-back length) very fine/soft hair and is kinda curly if conditions are right. It is very feathery-fine and light but I have a lot of it, if that makes sense?

I had an up-do that I loved, and I think it would work well with your hair from what I can tell. I’d post a pic, but I’m on my blackberry so I’ll just have to direct you to look at my posts with my wedding photos to see it…
