Wedding Hairstyles Tips for Thin Hair

No woman is ever satisfied with the hair texture they possess. Thick-haired women complain that their hair turns fizzy, while women with thin hair complain that no hairstyle looks good on them. Although it is true that the number of hairstyles for thin hair is sufficiently less than those with thick hair, with proper styling products people with thin hair can have a good hairstyle as well. The first step in creating a great hairstyle is to have a good haircut. The right haircut can give an illusion of a thicker mane and make hair look voluminous. Talk to your stylist about the kind of volume you want, and create a style that is suitable for your hair texture.

Voluminous Updo
One of the best hairstyles for a bride who has thin fine hair is an updo. But remember that a normal updo where hair is scrapped back from the crown and tied into a chignon or bun is not going to work. You need an updo that is glamorous and chic, and has a soft and feminine look. This will also camouflage the fact that your hair is not that thick. To create a voluminous updo first shampoo and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and shine enhancing conditioner. While your hair is still a little damp, apply a dollop of volumizing mousse through the front of your hair. Do not get tempted to use too much mousse to create volume, as excess can lead to flattening of the hair. Now blow dry your hair with a paddle brush and blow dryer and take care to lift the hair from the roots while blow drying it. Once your hair has been blow dried, curl one inch section of hair with a medium barreled curling iron. Backcomb hair at the crown area to create volume, and loosely sweep hair to form a low knot at the nape of the hair. Secure the knot with bobby pins and spritz hair with a hairspray.

Romantic Half Updo
Most brides to be with fine hair shy away from a half updo thinking that the style might not suit them. But a half updo looks soft and romantic, and can be created in such a way that it makes thin hair looks voluminous. To create a half updo, shampoo and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Blow dry hair straight using a round boar bristle brush and blow dryer. To give volume to your hair, apply a bit of volumizing mousse or texturizing cream through your hair. Divide hair into two sections from ear to ear so that you have a front section and a back section. With the help of a rattail comb tease hair in the front section and then pin it back with a few bobby pins. Rake the front section of the hair with your fingers before pinning it back to give a tousled appearance. With a medium barreled curling iron, curl the rest of the hair at the ends.

An Updo with an Accessory
A great way to divert attention from thin hair is to wear a bejeweled accessory like a comb with feathers or a rhinestone encrusted barrette. To create such a hairstyle, first wash and condition hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. While the hair is still a little damp, blow dry hair with a paddle brush. Gather hair into a low chignon and secure with bobby pins. Slide a bejeweled comb or barrette behind your ear. Spritz hair with a strong hold hairspray and you are done. Make sure that the hair accessory you choose is blingy or flashy but not over the top.

Soft Knot
Hairstyles that are too structured and compact do not look very appealing on a bride. So opt for a soft knot that gives your face definition. One of the best wedding hairstyles for thin hair is a soft knot. To create this hairstyle, apply hairspray to your hair and then tease the roots of the hair at the crown with a comb. Gather the hair back into the nape of your head, and secure it into a low ponytail. Brush the underside of the ponytail to create a rough texture and then wind the ponytail into a knot. Let the edges of the ponytail stick out from the knot, and secure the knot with U- shaped pins.

If you are still not satisfied with your wedding hairstyle, then you can consider using hair extensions. Hair extensions will give your hair volume, and then you can create any hairstyle you like.
