I have long hair but one of my BMs had pretty short hair that sounds just like yours! I don’t have any photos but the hairstylist pinned it in a way that looked like an updo, even though it wasn’t really. Ask your hairstylist to see what she can do! Otherwise, you could always get a clip-in extension or something along those lines.

Are you worried that your hair wont be long enough for the updo? They can always add extensions, thats what I did for mine wedding since my hair is quite as long as I needed for the updo I wanted

I’m not really in the same situation hair wise but I think you need to stop trimming your hair: It won’t make it grow faster & you’re jest losing length! Hair grows about 1/2inch a month so you’ll have an extra inch or two by the time your wedding rolls around, depending on how fast it grows/your hair texture. Most hairstylists know how to cheat a look with a lot of hair so I think you probably have enough hair from what you describe. What kind of updo do you want?

Your hair could grow one to two inches before the wedding if you stop getting trims (unless you are prone to split ends you don’t need to get trims that frequently while you’re growing it out). I think it’ll be plenty long for an updo, depending on the style you go with (a chignon yes, a topknot will probably not work).

@ames12708:  People tend to think that but in fact hair grows in cycles regardless of how much or little you cut it. Your roots, which produce the hair folicle have no sensory method to know whether you cut your hair or not since your hair is dead. It’s likely the change in weather that’s affecting your hair growth.

I only cut my hair once a year (if that!) & it grows consistently.

Maybe something like this?? Her hair looks kinda short

I was in the Navy and every yr we had the Corpsman Ball(med field) and my hair wasnt that long but a good hair stylist can make it appear fuller and longer:) My lady always did a great job. I went to her for over 4 yrs.

You can always add clip in extensions to give you more length to work with.

You can see how short mine was, and it was a miracle she was able to get i up like she did (as MOB).
