Oh I totally feel your pain! As a very curly haired girl I’ve been massacred by hair dressers so many times that honestly, if I need a cut nowadays I just about have to have a valium before I go!!! I’d say next time take the pics and be insistent about her making your hair like the pictures – after all you’re getting married – not her! Sometimes you have to be pushy with hair people – they think they know better than you do – despite the fact that YOU’RE the one with the hair on your head 24/7!

Good luck, take pictures, be specific and don’t take any BS!

Velcro Curlers?!?!?  Do they even MAKE those still?  I’m sorry for this mishap!  I would definitely reconsider going back to her however–not only does it not seem like she understands what you want, it doesn’t seem like she’s a super competent hairdresser!

Not sure where you are, but there have GOT to be more options!

Oh my goodness!  I wouldn’t go back to this woman!  Don’t let her do your wedding hair.  You can find someone better!!

Oh, sweetheart, I so entirely feel your pain!

I have naturally curly hair too and I’ve been through the ringer with hairstylists over the years. I was sure that there was no one that could properly cut my hair except me for well over a decade. I totally lucked out less than a month ago and finally found someone that makes my hair fabulous – someone that I totally trust is going to be able to make my hair rock for the wedding. The minute I met her I was soothed – she’s got naturally curly hair too!

I’m completely with Mouse on this – don’t let this woman do your hair again!

I wouldn’t go back either.  If you aren’t satisfied with her now, I doubt you will be on your big day.  And we women know, no matter how stunning we look, if our hair doesn’t do what we want, we don’t feel beautiful.

Oh no! Can you find a salon that specializes in curly hair? there are a few here in St. Louis and i have a curly haired friend who just raves about the place.It’s called a Deva salon or something…Deva specailizes in curly hair and she really liked all the stuff she used on them.

@eurekaanchovies: If you found a GREAT stylist at that DEVA salon, it might be worth the cost of having her come to you on your wedding day.  Just a thought!

Sounds like you’re happy to continue on with this lady and I wouldn’t worry too much about it. She (and the manager) sound like reasonable people and they’ve already discussed how they won’t use that product again. If you liked the style (and if you take your original inspiration pics with you on the day) I don’t see why it won’t be fab – especially as you say that she’s happy to take onboard your thoughts and suggestions about the style! Just be really clear about how you want it and it’ll be great! Good luck!!
