unless she really teased the hell out of it- right off the bat your hair is a very different texture than the model.

 

i think youll have to have your hair flat ironed, blown out, or dried in large velcro rollers to first get it straight and silky.

 

then you’ll need to do the curling and pinning after that, also using product that defines and holds the curls without being too heavy.

Agreed with Yaara. Your hair looks much thicker (and likely longer) then the models hair. In order to have your hair in that style of bun it’ll look much bigger and need to be pinned more. Unless it’s flattened/blown out as yaara suggested.

wawa92017 :  Did she backcomb it a bunch then? Use a super sticky/thick hair spray? If your hair is straight then the model’s hairstyle should definitely be achievable.. She shouldn’t need to backcomb at all, use some soft curlers with a light hairspray and it shouldn’t get that matted look.. It should definitely be set lower and looser with a number of pieces falling out on purpose. I think your assumption of this hairstyle not being her strong point is probably correct unfortunately.

wawa92017 :  Can you find another stylist?  I ended up going through two hair trials and three makeup trials with different people each time to get the look I wanted.  It was a headache and cost so much, but it was worth it when my wedding day came and there were no surprises with how I looked.

I had a hair stylist who just never got what I was looking for unfortunately…my hair turned out pretty on my wedding day but nothing really what I wanted..my hair trial was a disaster and I picked a simpler style for the wedding because I wanted to avoid a mess the day of. Sometimes stylists just don’t understand what we are looking for…is that the only pic you have? Maybe showing it from different angles would help?
