So I had my hair and make up trial and it went pretty awful.
Girls I need some opinons. The lady showed up 30 minutes late and unprepared, and my hair and makeup looks pretty bad. I have two months until I walk down the aisle and no idea what to do.
As I see it I have three options; to forfit my $200 deposit and find someone else (or do it myself), to ask for another trial and hope she doesn’t charge me the $120 trial fee, or to just pray everything goes well on the day of and give her specific things to change.
Here are pictures and my inspiration pictures I showed her. Hair first.
and the inspiration pictures
and the makeup. These pictures arent the best. You can kind of see that the color she put on my face almost looks orange. my eye color is better, originally she had a pinkish red color on them and I told her that wasn’t going to work.
here is the inspiration look. I told her I wanted something light because I dont use a whole lot of makeup
advice, thoughts, suggestions?

Is there flash in the pictures? It’s hard to tell how the makeup looks, because I think the flash might’ve washed everything out. But I think your hair turned out very well.
It’s hard to copy a style exactly, because everyone’s hair is different. But your hair looks lovely from the back. The criss-crossed parts look like they were pulled tighter by your stylist than in the inspiration pic. And your curls aren’t as tight as the curls in the inspiration photo. But your stylist should be able to make those minor changes.
The thing that bothers me is that you don’t have any tendrils coming down in the front, and it looks like your inspiration photo included some loose hair in front. I’d call her, tell her your concerns, and see if she offers a re-trial.

Well, to start, you have gorgeous hair and such a pretty face 🙂
I like your hair but it definitely seems like the curls should be tighter and fatter (if that makes sense).
Could you go somewhere else for makeup application, like Sephora, MAC, or a department store? I think you can achieve a light, fresh-faced look more similar to your picture.
Good luck – I hope you can come back and share new pics 🙂

Did you tell her when it was done that you’d like the curls tighter??
Id do the second trial with her and make sure!!!! Don’t let her leave till you figure something out

Love your hair! You can ask her to add more curls to the back. Your make up needs a bit of work. Maybe you can experiment with colors on your own to find out what works best for your coloring, & ask her to incorporate them. Ask your girlfriends for help and use you tube. They have tons of make up tutorials. Good luck!

I also think your hair looks beautiful! I would think it would be an easy fix to make the curls tighter. However, I don’t think the make-up looks at all like the inspiration photo. I would defintiely give her that feedback and ask for another free of charge trial.
