My hair is medium auburn/brown and very fine and thin. I have tried every product, shampoo, viatimin, etc, but it is what it is. There is a lot more visable scalp than I wish, but I’m also used to this as my daily existence. My problem is that I cannot seem to find any real advice on what styles will work best for my hair on my wedding day. Prom hairstyles were always just what the hair stylist could do with it, never what I really wanted. I’ve googled and binged and looked for pictures of real brides with hair like mine and I just can’t find anything. I see girls who say “Oh, I have thin hair” but really, they just have fine hair. There’s no scalp issue. Is there anybody else out there going through this? Any real brides who’ve shared my misery?

@missrobots: as a stylist, my specialty is actually hair just like yours. is your hair curly? straight? how long is it? do you have a photo?

My hair is quite straight. It will hold curl if I use the right product. I have to wash daily because it’s too fine to hold up to oil. I’m at work and do not have access to photos here, but will post one later if it will help.

i have fine thin hair as well (mine is just to the middle of my back in length). for my wedding i did a chignon, because i thought it would hold up well. it did ok, but still started falling out the day of. if i could do over, i would use some dry shampoo the morning of instead of washing my hair. i didn’t even think of that until after the wedding. i have to wash my hair every day, because i seem to produce a lot of oil on my scalp. dry shampoo gives my hair some volume at the roots and i look so much better! the spray kind seems to give me more volume than the powder, but both have been successful! however, it takes a little practice to keep you from looking grandma-ish (ie. white hair). just be sure to rub it in really well.
tomorrow is my friend’s wedding and that’s what i’m planning on doing to get my updo to stay all night.

@missrobots: Same here! It’s tough, I know. I feel lihe my hair gets damaged so easily because I’m always trying to find some way to make it look like I have more, which sometimes means I hurt it. Mine is curly, but in these pics, it’s straight except for the last one. The curliness kind of helps with the illusion that I have a littlemore if I work it just right, though. I feel like I’ve tried everything for it, too. I had been planning on getting extensions for volume, but that didn’t work out; they extensions were somewhat visble because my hair was fine.. plus, they would have damaged my hair, which is the last thing I want.
One bit of advice that I got from a stylist was to use the Nioxin system, which I guess is supposed to help your hair look thinker. I’ve tried it though, and I didn’t notice much of a difference despite the $20 price per bottle.
I don’t really have any pictures that actually depict how thin my hair is because I don’t reallky save pictures that I hate, lol. But, here are some…
THIS… is probably one of the worst pictures I’ve ever taken, but it gives the best example of what my hair is like on a bad day… (I know I’m going to regret this!)

I found several types of dry shampoo at Ulta. They even sell color specific sprays so it’ll blend in with your hair whether it’s blond, brown, whatever. It ranges from $8 up to $20something a bottle, so you have some options. It works great for 2nd day hair (Mine is fine and thinner, too) Just don’t get the colored ones on your clothes- it’s hard to get out.

I have baby fine hair and I lOVE dry shampoo. The best I have ever used is by Bumble & Bumble. I little more of a pricier product line, but it was so worth the purchase and it smells great! I also love their volumizing shampoo. Bumble & Bumble is always worth the money to me!!

I have pretty fine thin hair (and depending on how the hair is pulled back you can definitely see scalp). Luckily I spent 13 dollars at trade secrets and came up with this amazing hair wrap. The clips with hair are way too heavy for fine thin hair – way too heavy lol. but the hair wraps are just like hair around an elastic and much much lighter – so the back bun of my hair is all fake – and nobody knew lol
this was my fine thin hair without the wrap :
