Do you ever curl your hair?  I think some large barrell curls would look gorgeous.  Could any of the other BMs help you with your hair?  Or could you make an appointment with an outside salon that morning to have your hair done, and meet up with the other gals to finish getting ready?

Um WOW your hair is gorgeous!

I also have rather fine hair and have found that using a minimal amount of conditioner (about 1/5 what I usually would, just enough to keep it from being an awful tangly mess) helps my hair hold curls immeasurably.

I would probably do loose spiral waves/curls and pin one side back with a sparkly clip to match your dress. But I tend to be kind of a minimalist with my hairstyles. Mostly just wanted to tell you how pretty your hair is 🙂

For weddings I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man in – if we don’t do our hair together, I always go before the getting ready events and show up post-salon visit with my hair done… could that be an option for you?

Will your hair “wave”…what about braiding it wet the night before and wearing it crinkly…it will look more wavy and not like tight crimps from back in the day!! lol. I live in Florida where its extremely humid and even if it did “fall” it would still have a wave to it and it could be worn as a nice tousseled style with a cute clip or low side pony…

I personally love a long neat gorgeous pony tail. Not fancy but classic.

My BM’s were expected to do their own hair and they all did really simpley styles. One of my girls admitted she couldn’t do hair to save her life and another girl offered to help. In the end they did a really loose but pretty side pony that was simple enough but it looked amazing. She parted her hair on the side and put a really pretty hair flower in it. Honestly, it was perfect. Don’t feel like you need to do a ton! Do something simple and elegant and you will look amazing.

I would just go to the salon before I was expected at the bride’s parents’ home.

Hmmm…I had a friend recently who did this with great success…if I hadn’t indulged in the post-wedding chop, I would have tried it, too!

French braids are in and are very elegant.  Is there a bridesmaid that can help you do a french braid of some kind down the side and into a side pony.

 

Something similar to this picture.  I think it woulde be adorable!

A friend of mine had her hair in a chignon for her wedding. She loved it so much she googled it on You Tube and was actually able to redo it herself for another friends wedding. She said it is VERY simple.  Something about making two pony tails and twisting and pinning. I would try looking it up on You Tube!  You could practice at home.
