I think your hair looks nice!  It looks like it has a lot of product in it, though, but that could be the pictures.  The problem is that your pictures show your hair flat and dull, while the inspiration pictures show hair that is glossy and shiny.  Maybe that is the problem?

Of the pictures you posted, I think the first two look nice.  It’s hard to tell without your face, of course.

Did she try the two styles you pictured here – because it doesn’t look like she even attempted them! 

Remember that on the day they are going to put a lot more into perfecting the style – the trial is usually just to give you an idea of what it looks like and whether it is possible. So it is definitely going to be messier/sloppier!

Here is my trial:

Here is my day of hair style:

Is it that you don’t like the work of the stylist (as in you think she did a poor job in creating the looks you requested), or that the styles she re-created for you don’t look the way that you hoped they would when they are actually on your head?

The styles you tried are very similar to my personal style, so I like them. But if they just don’t feel right for YOU and your wedding, that’s okay. 🙂

I don’t now, I really love the second style you got. Thats really nice. Of course if it’s not what you’re looking for, that’s a different story, but I really like it.

Personally, I LOVE the second style (love love love!).  But it’s really up to you!  Try another stylist. 

Good luck!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  I think your hair is lovely!

I, personally, have thick, dark, heavily textured, curly hair so I’m usually limited in what styles I can do. Thick… like my ponytail is about the same width of my wrist. Like every time I’ve gone to a new hair dresser, they’ve had to cancel appointments because I have at least 3 times the regular amount of hair.  Like every time I wear it up, the heaviness gives me a headache after an hour.

Your hair is lovely, thick but managable!  I have no doubt you will find the perfect hair style!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Thank you, but I am considered that your stylist may not be able to do what you want. The second style is really just a loose braid on top and then a sock bun (I actually really like it and feel I could do it on my own). 

I know that you like her but you will be disappointed if you don’t get what you want!

The fish tail one IS GORGEOUS by the way and I totally think you could do it with your gorgeous hair!

I love the second style, but if you were hoping it would turn out like one of those pics, yeah, I can see why you would be disappointed. One, I think she used way too much product. Your hair looks really stiff and stringy, especially in the last photo. That could just be pictures though. And two, none of them look like the pictures you posted.

Like I said, I like the 2nd one. I think it just needs to be cleaned up a little bit.

@BeachBride2014:  Ha, my friend has such thick hair that she is like…flagged at the hair dresser.  They told her she cannot have the last appointment of the day because she has too much hair!
