Easy DIY updo for fine hair? Please!
Permalink Closed


I'm going to a wedding on an island this weekend and I anticipate the weather to be humid/rainy. I need to be able to put my hair up in a style that photographs well and works with my fine texture. Anyone have any recs?

We arrear to have similar hair, and this is my go-to humid day off-the-neck hair-do:

Curl hair first (like in your photo)

Pull back into 2-3 pony tails with those tiny plastic hair ties (often sold in clear or black). Sometimes I stack the ponytails vertically, sometimes I go horizontal at the base of my neck. Make sure they are a little loose.

Then I bobby pin the curls willy-nilly around the ponytails until it looks like one continous look instead of seperate ponys.

It's easy and wears well in the heat and humidity. I usually gel first and hair spray later.

A tip for an easy updo and my new favorite hair holders are goody spin pins! I put my hair into a pony tail, then arrange my hair into a loose bun, screw in a few pins in strategic locations, and it stays without pulling at my scalp. I can do loose up dos no with no problem. I just love them!

The bun spiral is great for when my hair is wet and I want it to air dry too:

I think you can buy them at target or any store with a large cosmetics area that sells hair accessories. I bought mine at Meijer, but I don't know if you have Meijer stores in your area.

ETA: Target does have them: http://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=goody+spin+pins&category=0%7CAll%7Cmatchallpartial%7Call+categories

I think I may actually be able to use those. So far I have never been able to successfully accomplish anything other than a basic ponytail with my hair. Do you get them at Target?

 I'm going to need to get myself some of those!  

 

I got these responses after i left for the island and it was a bit too late unfortunately.  The weather was actually quite chilly so I wore it down with a few tendrils pinned back.  Later, when we danced, I just pinned it into a messy french twist.  I wish I'd put more effort into my hair bc it looks pretty flat and non-existent in the pics.
