i have the same story! when people ask about my wedding hair i tell them about the updo for prom that lasted through dinner and 10 mins of dancing. its just so heavy! not to mention i get headaches when my hair pulls too much so i couldnt imagine having a tight updo… i know i would go crazy and rip it out!
right down my hair is about waist-level, i plan on taking about 4-5 inches off. the only choice i have is to be down and curly
im thinking about putting a flower in my hair for the reception to keep the hair out of my face

@Tiffner: You just described me. Long, check! Thick, ridiculously so. Aren’t we lucky to have so much fabulous hair. 😉 Oh and I’m a faux auburn redhead.
I tried doing an updo and I was in pain within 30 minutes. Thank goodness I did a hair trial and there were SO MANY bobby pins.
I opted for half up and half down. This way I could show off my hair while still having it somewhat back and not in my face.

mine is long and thick. I did a simple low side ponytail, wilth my hair curled and just a flower, no veil. It worked out really well

I have ridiculously thick hair that is STICK STRAIGHT. It will not hold any curl or wave no matter how many products I use on it. I can’t wear it up because it’s so heavy; also, even with hairspray and hundreds of bobby pins, my hair will fall out of the style/updo in under 30 minutes.
I’ve kept it a medium length the last few years (almost to my bra-line); 9 days before the wedding I had my stylist cut off about 2.5 inches and add some dark honey highlights. I washed it the morning of the wedding, pulled it back with a claw clip for a few hours, then did a 45-minute blow-out about 2 hours before the ceremony. It looked ok till the last hour or so of the reception (when the weight finally pulled it down and flattened it).

This is the photo i took in for a college formal a couple years ago. I will warn you it took a LONG time to do, but my stylist was a student who had never done an updo for long hair so if you have someone with experience it should go better. My hair was a few inches above my waist at the time and it is naturally extremely thick and poofy.

@Suz168: i looove your dark hair and blue eyes!!
I have long and thick hair, too. It’s almost down to my natural waist, and layered. My hairstylist for the wedding wanted me to model my hair for her portfolio, and I was so flattered b/c my hair has always been a bit of a nuisance to me. I am opting for half-up half-down as many of you are 🙂

I’m another long/super thick haired bride, and not sure what to do with all this hair. I think I can do a simple, classic low bun or chignon. I have my hair up all the time for work (massage) so my scalp is used to the weight. I think an updo would better compliment my dress, and my hair is too stubborn to be either straightened or curled tighter than the natural wavy curl it already has. The updos that have the curliques or cascading curls, although pretty, feel like they may look a bit ‘young’ for me.
I like this look
Or this, if I decided to go sleeker.
My fiance doesn’t get to see my hair up very often, so it’s also for him I’d like to have it up. He tells me I have a pretty neck 🙂
