I have thick hair, just below shoulders. Straight-ish but not sleek. I am inept with bobby pins and braiding. 

Every time I google/Pinterest/youtube "easy updos" I'm instantly put off by the reliance on bobby pins to hold up ALL THE HAIR, or braids which I can't do.

Does anyone have any tried and tested, really idiot-proof styles that I might be able to try?? I'm going to a wedding next weekend and would love to try something different - and have some time to practise!!

There are some weird spirally type pins that actually work. Can't recall the name though. I bought for a friend's wedding recently.

In the end I booked a cut and blow dry on the morning and my hairdresser took pity on me and curled my hair a bit.

I am COMPLETELY inept (not suggesting you are), and always think that I ought to be able to do these things, but really just can't.

I recently bought one of those doughnut things - was actually quite easy to do, and looked fine. Did a low bun, then twisted some of the front sections up to wind around it. (I would find you a tutorial, but I can hear DS waking up. It was super easy and so much better than things I'd tried previously).

Other more pro people will be along shortly, but do practice. Makes it easier.

this one looks pretty easy. just tying your hair in ponytails a few times and wrapping it around, need to secure it at the last minute with pins but looks pretty beginner for an updo??

if not, can you do a half up half down curly/wavy look? works for any occasion!

I've got those spirally pin things and yes they work great! Got them in Poundland I think. You just twist them into your hair and it holds it.
