My hair was long (past shoulders) at the time of the wedding but it’s super thin.  It’s also wavy and can be frizzy.   My hairdresser added hair to make my hair poofier (much like the part under the clip.  Fake hair does wonders and mine looked real ๐Ÿ™‚  I also did a conditioning treatment before the wedding at his suggestion – I don’t think it made any difference, though.

My mom has super thin hair and she always added hair or used one of those puffy “donut” things to fill it out… I’d vote for the added hair.

Like the 2 previous posters, I would also suggest extensions.

I have baby-fine naturally blonde hair: the kind like little kids have that get streaks of platinum in the summer sunshine.

Great colour & shine, but ultrafine and flat and will NOT hold a curl.

For special occasions I bought a set of human hair clip-in extesions and they’re GREAT.  They curl easily and hold the curl all night, and I’ve work them straight as well and had many compliment. I definitely plan on wearing them on my wedding day.

I too have really thin, straight hair.  I keep it long, its about the middle of my back right now.  I haven’t a clue as to how to wear it for the wedding.  I can say that if I can afford it, I am totally doing some hair clip-in’s or something to add volume.  I can curl my hair with product and it will be flat in 10 minutes. 

 

I have learned though that you shouldn’t wash your hair the day you want it styled.  Having it greasy will allow the hair to hold style much better. Good luck!

You could try clip in hair extensions. My hair is super fine, and I always thought they would slip right through my hair, but I ordered some from Foxylocks and there is no way they are sliding out-I don’t even have to tease the hair before I clip them to make sure they stay. Just a suggestion!

I have yet to get my hair styled for the wedding, but i do have long, fine hair.

Pick out a great product (or the stylist will) that adds body to your hair. I usually use a mousse, but there are other alternatives. 

I do not nec.think you need to use extensions to putll off a great look. Granted, this depends on the “look” you are going for.

 

I am going for fullness and some height with my do. (down and/or half up) I too, was worried that it would run flat after a few hours or not look “up to par”.

But, i think it will be just fine =)

I have never used these, but have read posts by Bees that have…a hair sponge that your stylist puts beneath the “bun-ish” part of your hair style and covers it with your hair?  I gives added volume without having to use faux hair!  Try goolging it, it’s worth a shot! I would assume that it can’t be that expensive.

PS – I am honeymooning in Costa Rica, I can’t wait! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just got my trial done today, and my hair is very fine and thin.

I’m using the Hailey bun from Cheerleaderhairpieces.net. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s cheap and adds tons of volume. Even if you just use it as a base and then have her cover it up with your hair, it will add volume.

Here’s a pic from my hair trial with the hairpiece in there (she’s going to tuck it into a bun more too like your inspiration picture):
