I think she should try it will a curling iron and curl the hair around the outside of the barrel. That would make it look curlier, but not like 2000 prom curls either. But I do think it looks very pretty as is…might just be closer to your inspiration if she used a curling iron.

If you want more curl but are worried about length, have her just do a bit more curl on the front, face-framing pieces. Most people I know with naturally wavy/curly hair (myself included) have a bit more curliness at the front anyway so it will still look natural. You can curl with a straightning iron depending on technique but it is easy if you just let her know.

@MrsSaulty: I pinned it off of Style Me Pretty a while ago

@doxielove: My hair is not thick at all, in fact it’s the opposite, it’s baby fine thin hair. But yes, I do have trouble holding any sort of curl in them.
And thank you everyone for the feedback. I will let her know. I just can’t wait to see how it turns out on the wedding day(exactly a month away now).

I agree with other PPs. Need to use a curling iron. Your inspiration are actually curls. The trial almost looks like crimping to me. BUT I do love the style you chose and I think if it’s with a curling iron everything will look lovely!

@MrsElopement: Yep agree totally with Arielle.
I must say, the view of the back of your hair is just beautiful. I feel like the back of the style is much more special than the front.

the hair did some out alot like the picture, im a hairdresser the only thing i would change is to have the poof more in the back like the picture, the poof seems kinda of high in the front and you will notice during the night dancing the curls in the side are going to fall and get flatter making the poof seem even larger, so if you put the poof more in the back it would soften the front

I agree with PP about going for more of a curl than a wave, but I have one other suggestion. If you look at the direction of the waves in your pictures, it looks like they are all going the same direction, which looks very unnatural. I would suggest mixing it up and alternating which direction subsequent pieces get curled, on either a curling iron or a straightener.

So you don’t have highlights now? (I don’t know if I’m reading this right) If not, make sure she doesn’t go overboard because your hair is a beautiful color

@kaiangel6: nope, no high lights. My hair is usually alot more blonde but latley it’s turned this brassy dark blonde color which I am not a fan of(especially in the back and underneath, which you can see in the pictures).
I just want a few high lights in the back, about the same color of the hair that is framing my face.

Yes, definitely have her do it with a curling iron on your day of. Then it will be perfection!! 🙂

Yes, that is what I was going to suggest as well.
Your face is much more round than the bride in the second photo so you need a softer approach to the hair style. Currently it is very “uniform” as mentioned by PP and I think a bit of a messier styling with framing curls would really flatter your face shape more.
(Round face here too, same issues as I have a similar inspiration photo…)
