@ErinCC: Are you wanting to rock something like that for every-day hair, or just for your wedding? For everyday waves, I’d look for a large barrel curling iron or some mid-large hair rollers.

I’d suggest the splurge of going to the hair dresser to get your long hair done (mine’s a few inches past my bra strap lines in the back now) and they’ve said that long hair can be difficult to style depending on the lenght/texture. They have some AMAZING products to use in your hair, though, b/c mine never holds a curl on my own, but the hairdresser when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man made it stay wonderfully. See what he or she says about what they can do for you. It seems your hair has some wave already, it’s very pretty!

@ErinCC:Definately go to a hairdressers to try it out,or try looking for a college or training salon near you(theyre cheaper and do just as good work) It looks like a pretty striaght forward set, which is just rollers put in wet hair and then put under heat to..well,set!Laughing  Also,get some really good hair products (over here stuff like moroccon oil is amazing,it gets your hair in a lovely condition. I dont know if you guys have it) If you can keep your hair healthy and strong,it makes a world of difference.

For and everyday look, I would get a styling wand,easy to use,cheap to buy and you will get great results,although the curls may be a little tighter.

Good luck and pm if you need any more ideas!

Well I can almost guarantee that most celebs do not do their own hair.  πŸ˜›  Your best bet would be having a hairdresser for your wedding day.

For everyday wear, you could try a curling iron (though I find that takes foreeever) o a straightening iron that lasts for a few days until you wash.  I’m more a wash and go kind of girl.  

There’s actually quite a few tips and tricks for getting curls and waves… search YouTube and you’ll find a lot of HowTo videos on the subject… everything from using pieces of paper bag to proper curlers to braiding your hair while wet/damp and letting it dry.

By the way, I love your first option for wedding hairstyle.  πŸ™‚   Looks very sleek and elegant.

@ErinCC: Aah, I see. I’d say that some layers work really well, especially with that second look. They can also help to thin your your hair or give it volume, depending on how they cut them for you. I think waves like that 1st pic would take about 20 minutes in the morning with a large barrel curling iron, maybe 20-25 for the second pic with a slightly smaller barrel. 

If you have a hairdresser you usually see, I’d just bring in the photos and they will be so helpful with giving you great products that will work to help your hair hold certain styles and give you great tips on how to reconstruct that look yourself πŸ™‚ Any stylist that I’ve met with is really happy to help demonstrate how to style your hair, they love helping people learn new tricks.
