I didn’t have the same style you’re going for, but here is the beginning of the day when i was getting ready:

This is my hair on the altar after driving in a convertible in the rain with my dad… I think considering the conditions it held up well! You can tell the curls were falling, but the part that was up was pinned so well that it didn’t budge:

111CDH2

This is my restle for the reception. She basically just took the part of hair that was down and put it into a side braid and just touched up the rest of it:

Oooo I did. I don’t want to upload a photo for anonymity reasons lol, but let me just say it worked out beyond my wildest imagination. I have super fine, thin hair that was medium long when I got married (maybe a few inches below my shoulders), and this was my inspo pic:

I thought there’s no way in hell my stylist is gonna be able to pull this off. I had all but decided to invest in extensions, but when I went for my trial my stylist was like, why don’t we just give this a try without any extensions and see how you do? So I nervously agreed. I have natuarlly kinda wavy hair that I had washed that morning and then shoved into a bun while still damp (bad, I know), so when I took it down it was a hot mess, awkward kinks, frizz, the works. But she was like this is perfect! Come exactly like this on your wedding day! I guess the hot mess that my hair was in made it somehow easier for her to work with, since the style i wanted was kinda messy too.

Anyway, she started by putting every strand of my hair into hot rollers on top of my head, which is something that no stylist has ever done when I’ve gotten an updo before…they usually just use a curling iron to haphazardly curl it a bit for a few seconds, which does basically nothing for me. Anyway so I sat there in rollers for about 25 min. Then she takes them down and sprays a ton of gunk into my hair and just gets to work teasing the shit out of certain areas and stuffing and folding it all into a low, romantic bun. The end result blew my mind…it looked like I had someone else’s thick, luscious locks! But it was all my own hair!

And let me just say I’ve had a zillion updos before, been a bridesmaid a million times, and they have ALL SUCKED…I always look like I have helmet head because the stylist never bothered using rollers. I am convinced the rollers is what made the difference.

anyway……wishing you luck bee, fine hair is not the end of the world, kyou just need a stylist who knows how to work with it!

twright4770 :  Thank you! Yes, I used extensions for fullness (they were actually a bit shorter than my real hair). My stylist is a redkin enthusiast. She used this magic product they make which really made a world of diference. My hair does not hold volume well, but through driving a convertible in the rain, this volume did not quit! 

This is the product:

tiffanybruiser :  Totally agree with the rollers. My hair was done with an iron for my wedding day because I was wearing a lot of it down to begin with, but I had rollers for my sisters wedding and they really made a difference for an updo.

My hair is fine and with clip in extensions and some backcombing my stylist gave me a lovely, full updo. I was just a guest at this wedding but was in that awkward stage growing out my long bob and needed some professional help to get it looking good lol.
