How to achieve a messy bun or textured up do with thin, straight hair

Wedding hair Q – I’ve seen some gorgeous pictures of messy buns and textured up dos, but my hair is so thin and straight. Can I still get this look?

"Many people assume that having fine, straight hair will stop them from creating their desired look. Messy buns and textured up dos are achievable by adding clip-in extensions and using padding to create extra volume. A good look is built on a great foundation. There are lots of lovely products that you can use when prepping your locks to add a bit more grit and body. My favourites are Schwarzkopf Volume Up and Dust It."
