Hi. Im getting married abroad (cyprus) and im stuck with what to do with my hair. My mum and sister have suggested i have it curled and left down. But im worried about the curls dropping out and getting to hot. Any ideas on maybe some easy going messy updos at all

Personally, there's nothing worse for me than being too hot and your hair being all over you, put it up in a gorgeous do!

Thanks for all the suggestions guys (this was my post lol) im a very hot person anyway and actually get really annoyed with my hair being down and getting in my face. With having 3 kids its always up in a ponytail lol. I dont know what looks good on me and what will work with my hair. And im not able to get a hair trial done either, so it just makes me extra concerned. X

Curl it and randomly pin it. I did this myself. My top tips are -
You need strong hold grips (Sallys do them online)
Get one of those small foam doughnut from poundland and pin your hair to it (if a beginner doing your hair helps give depth to the updo)
Curl your hair and then spray it with hairspray (before and after pinning)
You can get grips in Primark that look like a U shape - you can use these and get hair in them moving in a figure 8 and then pin

Just practice and give a go - honestly you can make something beaut with curls and some grips! X

I'd definitely recommend having your hair up! We got married in Majorca last year and it was really hot, I was so glad my hair was up and not sticking to my neck! I did some research and found a spanish hairdresser, I still managed to have a hair trial a few days before the wedding. Have a fabulous time!

Ah congratulations, Cyprus is such a beautiful place!😍 I totally agree with Steph with having a style similar to that as then your hair will be out of the way. Have a look on Pinterest for some ideas, possibly have a flower crown or something as it’s abroad?x

I’m getting married in Cyprus too and definitely opting for an updo similar to the pictures shown below. Too hot to have it down getting in the way!!

I got married in Cyprus with my first marriage. I get very hot and when I’m hot I get very frizzy hair. I went to the hotels hair dresser and had my hair curled and the front bits clipped back with a pretty clip it stayed lovely all day and night. xxx

I got married in Spain. I had my hair like this. Definitely recommend up do or your neck will be roasting. Also my bits at the side were originally curled but not so much in that photo. Get a couple of ideas and get your hairdresser you do a quick mock of them all and see what suits you best. Have a great day, good luck

Are you getting married in a beach? If so I've read from alot of past bride-to-be's that you should have it up, as the wind will keep blowing your hair across your face.

I got married in Cyprus last year. This is what I had. I found it a little breezy when I got married so this was perfect!
