Hello Bees.. I need some hair advice please!
I have chin length hair and would like to put my hair up for my wedding day. Unfortunately I’ve tried 3 times and can’t get the really short hairs at the back nape of my neck to stay up for very long! They are about 2 inches long. Is there a best way to deal with them? I have wavy medium thickness hair. I tried a few bobby pins but not sure I am pinning them right. Is there a better pin or good brand anyone recommends? My sister recommended curling it to help stay in place.. It’s hard cuz it’s short.
I also don’t know what do with the rest of my hair. I can manage to get it into a tiny ponytail but I’m not sure I want that. Should I get a fake hair piece? Or is there a way to roll and twist my hair in? I’m not very good at styling my hair so I’m kind of a novice!
I’ve been researching on the Internet for information but can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. I’m unemployed and Fiance has cc debt so we are doing without a hair stylist and makeup artist for our wedding. I’m getting married in 42 days woohoo!
If you wouldn’t mind, please share any tips on tools, hair products, and methods! Thanks soooooo much!!!! XOXOX

Try youtube- I’ve found some great video tutorials on there for makeup and hair. Also get some aquanet hairspray. We used it in theater all the time because it has super hold to it. For a lot of wedding hair styles you really need to use a good bit of hair spray to get it to stay. If your hair has a hard time holding a style/curl you can actually spray a section lightly, place in curling iron, and then spray again when you have all the curls in.

Oh I think I can help. Last week, I did my friend’s hair and it sounds like yours is a similar length. she has short hair with some long bangs in the front. What we did was start with a low pony tail leaving the bangs oun. She did some teasing to the top of her hair so it was not flat. The pony was about 2 inches and just long enough to double back over itself. So, split the tiny pony into 4-5 sections and essentially you will curl each one around your finger so the ends go under and you want o fan the sections out to give the illusion of a larger bun. There were little pieces which fell out the bottom so we tried to hair spray them back and just accepted that some tiny whispies would fall. She had two flower clips (from H&M, check them out if you want a cute, cheap hair acessory, I think it was less than $5 for the set and they come in several colors) which we used on the top to help shape the little bun and keep the hair in place. I was super impressed with how it turned out for such short hair. Hope my instructions help. I also recommend yhecking out YouTube for actual tutorials.

Thanks guys!! I have been looking online a lot, including YouTube, but haven’t found anything quite helpful yet. I’m mainly concerned about how to keep those super short 2″ hairs on the bottom of the nape of my neck up, because there’s a LOT of them and it looks so messy!!
@nikkialys ~ thanks for the tip! I already bought some of the Elnett that everyone recommends 🙂
@Cady ~ thanks for the link! although my hair is too short to use most of those 🙁
@VanillaNut ~ thanks for sharing! Any pictures by any chance? I wish my hair would fall into nice wispies 😛 It just sticks out in chunks! Too much short hair I guess..
