It doesn’t look as piecey. also in theother pic, it looks more like waves than curls.

She might have teased it too much so that way it wouldn’t move a lot and keep the shape and that’s where she lost the piecey-ness.

Agreed that some product to make it more piecey and maybe maybe giving it more of a part would help.  Also, look how her hair is pulled back.  It looks like it’s probably pinned right above and behind her ears and I would guess that yours is pulled into a half-ponytail.  Hers looks like it’s probably all down in the back and just the front is pinned.  

I’m guessing you really have your heart set on this look?  It looks like a very high maintenance style that might not wear very well.  I think the right product is very important.  I’m not a hair person though so I don’t have any good recommendations but maybe check out Bedhead products?

The hair is too big on the top and there is not enough volume on the bottom.  I think that you need to even things out by having the hair on the top be less pouffy.  Have you tried hair extensions.  I bought mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply and had my hairstylist use the clip-on hair extensions to give me more volume.

I think the biggest factor here is that the model is almost certainly wearing a big hair extension to get that fullness in the loose curls. It’s very easy to add a hair piece, you just clip it in and no one is the wiser. I would look into getting one, as I think a contributing factor here is that the top is out of proportion with the bottom. I got a quality real hair extension on my wedding day for about $40. Making the bottom fuller would help balance it out.

I agree with those who have noticed that your stylist did more of a curly look, whereas the other look is a little more piecey.  Did she use hot rollers or a curling iron?  I’ve actually seen stylists use two different curling irons to try to make a curly look less structured and more piecey. 

I also think that where your hair is pinned back is different than the other photo.  Did she pull it back on each side or use a ponytail or something?  I think in the photo, each side is pinned back individually and it’s pinned around her ear, so the volume isn’t just at the top of the head. 

I think extensions could work, but I also think you can get the volume you’re looking for without them, with the right styling.

I am not sure if you have any natural curl but if you do you know not to brush it at all to get that look.  I have a little curl in my hair and I am wanting more curls so what I do is take small section and twist them up and bobby pin them in your hair when it is still damp. Sleep on it and then next morning you will have big full hair without teasing.  If they tease your hair to get the look they have to do it underneath…never on TOP!  It will have a producty look when finished instead of a flowy look.  Hope it helps.

You might also try having the stylist curl your entire head of hair before styling, not just the back part.  That would give the top the “piecey-ness” without needing so much teasing. 

Good luck, I’m sure you’ll be gorgeous for your wedding!

I would say try and do a second trial if you can to make sure she can get it how you want it!

The picture of the one you want looks more parted in the middle and not pulled up and tight on the sides but flows very loosely into the back

I agree that it’s not balanced like the model photo – her hair is longer. I think just ask for less volume up top, otherwise it’s beautiful!!
