I like your hair in the low loose pony tail. Looks romantic and pretty!

I definitely prefer it pinned back and I would lose the crown. Its pretty but I think with your hair pinned back and a veil that it will be too much.

I would drop the flower crown all together.  I think the hairstyle in the picture of your dress would work perfectly.

I think it looks great pulled back! It would also really look great pulled back with that dress. If you like the idea of flowers, maybe just pin one in your hair towards the back. I definitely prefer it pulled back to down, but do whatever is going to make you feel fantastic on your wedding day!

I’d wear your hair pulled back and without the crown. Maybe you can use one of the flowers from the crown if you really want that element?

I agree with PP – hair up with veil, no flower crown.  I defintely think you should schedule another hair trial if you can!

I would call and tell her that you weren’t a fan of the first trial and ask if you can have a second for free.

Also a few notes about the ringlet effect: maybe you could ask her to use curling irons of different barrel sizes — that will make the curls look less uniform and more natural. Also, ask her to curl the pieces around your face back instead of forward (wrapping the hair away from your face on the curling iron instead of towards your face, if that makes sense). I think that would make it look more grown up.

Firstly I would loose the flower crown

Secondly did you take a picture of how you wanted your hair, ie the type of curls? If you did and she stuffed it, find a new hairdresser. If you didn’t i would go back with a couple of inspiration pics and have another trial.

No crown!

Simple up-do with a veil would be perfect!

(I would call the hairdresser and ask for another trial…)

I like the loose/curly side ponytail idea. Picture 3 does look more bridal to me. I would talk to the stylist and see if she’s willing to do a quick re-try on the hair. You don’t know what she’ll say until you ask.

As far as the flowers, I think you could use a few of the flowers from the crown you have and ask the hairstylist tuck them into your hair. That way it won’t be overwhelming with flowers and a veil.

PS-I think you photograph just fine. 🙂

First of all, you are absolutely beautiful and you will be a gorgeous bride!

I agree with PP, get rid of the flower crown. Looks cartoony/kids dress-up-y.

Another hair trial with loose curls, veil, +/- low ponytail.

No problem. You CANNOT look bad if you keep it simple.

Ditch the crown. I think your hair would look good up or down, but down would require looser curls like you originally wanted. Either way it will look great!

Your hair is so pretty in curls, maybe prettier in looser curls more of a wave. Maybe find a smaller crown with smaller flowers, so less dramatic. But I think th loose curls would be perfect with that dress!
