Hey, I think it depends on what kind of updo you want (and how thick your hair is, which I can’t really tell from your pic). There are definitely updos that will work with your length, but some won’t- could you post a pic of the kind of hairstyle you’re thinking of?

wedding08.2015:  I think you have enough hair to do something like that. Maybe a simple low bun with a side part? If you want something more complex I’m thinking you’ll need extensions. (I’ve been growing out my hair for two years so I feel your pain, lol)

wedding08.2015:  I think you def have enough hair, It looks thick too which will make it look fuller

Are you doing a trial? Your hair is similar lenghth to mine but mine looks thinner. I was considering extenstions but decided to just do the trial to see how it would look without and I thought it came out fine withouth extensions.

i had shoulder length hair and i was debating between half up and all up.  i went with half up, but i could have gone either way and it would have looked great.

wedding08.2015:  i think you have long enough hair. when i clicked on this post i was expecting short hair, like above the shoulders. 

I know a few girls who had hair right about the shoulder and they did updo’s but like PP said, I think it depends on what look you are going for. 

With the picture you posted, i think you have long enough hair for it

I’ve done a lot of people’s hair for prom and formals and stuff and your hair is long enough for an updo…like another poster said it is dependent on your stylist’s skill though. A good one will have a way of working with your hair to make it look bigger or fuller depending on what you want. Plus, with a year to go your hair will likely grow. I use pro-mend by nexxus (also cheap at ulta) and that helps stop your hair from breaking off so it’ll get some length.
