bump! I have long, fine hair and am thinking of an updo too. Would love some good inspiration pics.

I had fine just above shoulder length hair for my wedding.  I was going to get clip in extensions for volume to help my hair stay.  I opted out of it….but I hear it is a great option for fine/thin hair.

My hair would have looked fuller if I used the extensions but since I kept my veil in all night I didn’t bother.  I was happy anyway.

I have long, fine hair also.  I am planning to have mine teased (just for body) and then smoothed out into a low side bun/chignon.  I saw this at one of my friend’s weddings, and I love that it is a timeless, classic style that doesn’t fight against the texture of my hair.

I have long, thin hair as well. Fortunately, so does my hair stylist so she’s no stranger to working with it! I sent her a few inspiration pics and we both like this best:

 

My hair trial isn’t until March 28, but I’ll be sure to post pics afterward!

I have super fine hair that doesn’t have really ANY body in it without product. I just had my hair trial the day before yesterday and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do an updo without extensions, but my MUA/stylist assured me we could do the updo with just my hair. It turned out great!!

Here’s a pic of my hair normally:

And here’s what we accomplished at the hair trial:

 

Sorry for the huge! But even though this isn’t the best shot, I assure you it was full and made me look like I had thicker hair than I do. It can be done!

I also have baby hair so the stylist used extensions at my trial. Super easy to use as they clip right in. Here is what the back looked like:

This was from a bridal inspiration shoot that I modeled for last year. I have baby fine hair and was positive that the hair stylist wasn’t going to be able to do anything since we weren’t using extensions. Curls and hair spray go a long way though!

I’m having a half up half down style for my own wedding, but this was so pretty for the shoot.

 

Keep in mind, that you can always get clip-in extensions too. Remy hair is what my stylist recommends, and I’ll be getting them to help give my style for the wedding a little bit more volume. 🙂

Another vote for clip in extensions.  I used them and it made a world of difference!!  Unfortunately I don’t have any really good pictures of my updo, but I had a victory curl on one side and a french twist in the back and it was AWESOME!!!

i have really thin curly hair and i am planning on doing a hairstyle like this one. I may opt for extensions though because i would like the bun to look fuller

@Brideonabudgetlauren:  That sounds gorgeous!! Did you have an inspiration pic or just let the stylist do her thing?
