Our hair is about the same length so I can understand your hangups about full updo’s. I’d end up with both a headache & a neckache if I wore it all up! 

Here’s some of the style I had saved you might like- I think something to the side might look good with the side gathering on your dress:

This one is all up but it’s at least lower than most updo’s and still has some hanging out

Oooo I love hair questions!  This is what I’d do!

With a strapless dress you can’t really go wrong with the hair (down vs. up that is).

If you like the look of updos the best I would recommend:

1) Cut a couple of inches off the length and make sure it is layered to remove a bunch of the weight, while still retaining the long-hair look. I can’t tell from the photo if your hair is already layered 🙂

2) Practice some updos yourself. They don’t have to look good, they just need to give you an idea if they are too heavy. Don’t skimp on the bobby pins – they make a world of difference.

3) Just make sure you warn your stylist that you have deceptively thick hair and you hate when it ends up looking too big. She should be skilled enough to make it as full or sleek as you want.

I too have long, thick hair and I have ended up with some monsterously large updos and some VERY lengthy hair appointments when stylists are unfamiliar with my hair. My hair is bone-straight so they usually don’t believe me when I say it’s really thick. My last updo was scheduled for 1 hour and took 3 hours…
