i really recommend getting a hair trial for the updo that you love. get it early in the morning and then jump around all day and see how it turns out… a million bobby pins put in by an expert may be what you need!

I have crazy thick hair too (like enough for 3 people) and I have had up-dos before that were just fine.  There will be a lot of hairspray involved but I think you will be fine!  Also, gross as this sounds, don’t wash it before you go. Dirty hair stays better.

@elliestan: Agreed! I had about a million pins in my super-long, thick hair and it didn’t budge all day.

OP – I had a simple side bun with a fascinator to hide some of the pins. What my stylist did was make a mini ponytail to use up some of the hair and then wove the rest of my hair around it to create a bun. So basically, I had a bun inside a bun! It worked fabulously.

My updo had 69 bobby pins in it (yes, I counted them that night because I couldn’t believe after the first few dozen that I was still pulling more out) and it stayed perfectly from 9:30 in the morning until 11 at night. At the time my hair measured two feet long, and, as my hairstylist will gladly tell you, even a Wookie would consider my hair thick.

Take a morning and go for a trial of one of those elaborate pretty updos, and don’t get out of the chair until you can shake your head like a wet dog and nothing moves. Then see how long it stays in for the rest of the day. You’ll have your answer on whether it will work.
