So I had my hair trial months ago (downside to planning a destination wedding), and I loved it. It was exactly what I wanted. However, I want to make one change, and I’m wondering what others’ experience were with it.
I have naturally straight/slightly wavy hair. It’s also very thick. My hair style for the wedding will be a side updo, and during the trial, the stylist pulled it back straight. But lately, I’ve been seeing so many gorgeous updos with a wave to them (see picture) and I REALLY want that for my hair. My question is: did anyone do this, and how did your stylist do it? Will it work for people with straight hair? Is it a TON more work?

I think you would have it curled or keep it how it is if it’s naturally curly and loosely pin it some pieces to the back. I’m sure there’s a better explanation by someone who has actually done this before.
By the way, it’s a great hairstyle!

That’s what I was thinking, too: just have the stylist curl it with a small barrel iron instead of using big hot rollers or something. My hair is definitely not that wavy naturally. It’s mostly straight, and the bottom part tends to get a little wave, but that’s it.
Thanks! I love this style. I just don’t want to spring this on my stylist at the last minute if it’s a lot of extra work than she was planning on.

What you want can definitely be done with the use of product and styling tools.
I’ve seen stick-straight hair made to look naturally wavy and curly many times by great stylists who know how to use great products.
The look you want is popular among brides so I suggest you look for a wedding hair stylist in your area and do a trial do.

I think the Enzo Milano Bi Tube iron would work great with this style.

My stylist said that they use a gel to help shape it or keep the shape. When I did my hair for our e-photos she curled it first and then used pins to keep them in place with the gel. I had bigger curls/waves then your pictures

My hair is going to be almost exactly like this picture. Although I have naturally curly hair, she still has to use a curling iron to create that texture. It will be about gathering a base and then curing at the crown and pinning the pieces back without pulling them tight. It’s gorgeous!! Even the trial made me teary-eyed. Hahahaha.
