It looks okay. But definitely not like the picture at all. Is there anyway you could express your feelings to the stylist you hired and maybe she could give you another hair trial? If not, I’d find someone else. That’s not even close. Good luck, bee, I’m sure whatever you decide you will be gorgeous on your big day!

I think its on the right track but perhaps she needs to use some sort of smoother or glosser product before she pins it up so that it looks sleeker – also I agree with PP comparing the volume is hard since unless you go for extensions its hard to get your hair to be that full

svwedding:  it looks sloppy- and not as polished as the picture, but the concept is similar. I do think that the stylist could have gotten it right with some tweaking. The top in your picture is more polished, doesn’t have the overlapping hair pieces, the clip is higher up and the bottom pieces of curls are more defined and longer underneath the clip than what your stylist did. You should have been honest with your stylist at the trial (which is the whole point of a trial) so they could have fixed it and made it what you wanted or let them at least try to get closer to the picture. Now you spent $ and have no stylist and if you get one without a trial it may come out WORSE than your trial on your wedding day.

I would stick with this stylist and express your concerns. See if they would be willing to give you another trial for free or at a lower cost if you sign the contract for the day of in advance or worst case- see if they agree that the styles are different and see if they can get it closer to what you asked for.

You HAVE to communicate with any beauty professional.

I agree that the style is the same, but the inspiration photo has better curls. There’s a possibility it was photoshopped to edit out fly aways.

She could jsut have nicer hair than you – just saying.

Of course it’s not going to be exact but the fuzziness of it is unacceptable in my opinion. It should be smooth and polished looking, and that can be acheived on anyone’s hair.

svwedding:  do you have a picture of your normal hair? specifically are you normally curly and did they have to blow your hair out and then re-curl? having it look frizzy can sometimes be a side affect of that and sometimes you can prevent it by wet setting your hair on larger rollers vs straightening with a blow drier

I too, had my trial yesterday, and while the style is pretty, it won’t hold long enough to get to pictures (we have to do ours after the reception). The stylist was very honest in acknowledging this. I knew that my hair would have difficulty holding heat because I never use it on my hair. So, I will need to do a new trial with a new hairdresser. Fortunatley, this first trial was much less in price, so I’m not upset. All that to say, please know you’re not alone. I’m keeping my hair wrapped up every second I’m not outside to try to preserve it until my bridal shower. She offered to redo it the morning of if this does not work. 

I have an idea. If you would like a new hairdresser, tell them you can’t afford a trial, but would like to see pictures they have done with other brides that approximate the style you want. Have them be honest about whether or not you would need extensions to achieve it. For some reason, I don’t want false eyelashes, but at this point could care less about hair extensions.. if they will help.. put ’em in! Just my two cents ๐Ÿ˜‰

The inspiration picture looks like a girl with thinner hair than yours, which would yield different results when trying to do the same style on someone with thicker hair that has more volume and texture, which is what I’m seeing by looking at yours. You might need to reconsider how you want your hair styled.
