    I would find someone else! I can see exactly what you are talking about. In the inspiration pictures the hair seems so natural, bouncy, and free flowing. You did a better job on your own. And makeup could definitely be played up a bit.

    By The Way, you’re gorgeous =)

    I love that up-do of Emmy Rossom’s at the bottom of your post. I’d honestly find someone else. It’s not that this stylist is bad, she’s just not hearing what you’re saying. I totally get it.

    Find someone else. If she isn’t willing to work with what you want (and charges outrageously for a trial, IMO) then yeah. Someone else could do better.

    The barrel curls just need to be seperated and not left in their individual clump curls. This can be achieved by running your fingers through them or seperating them each manually then spraying them to stay that way. I’m surprised your stylist thought leaving them like that was okay. Reminds me of high school dance hair styles, very tight, not loose and romantic like you want. Find someone who understands and is not so uptight with curls. Good luck!

    I’d also recommend trying someone else but I think that your hair will loosen up as the day and night go on so that the tightness of the curls and the rigidness won’t be as much of an issue as you may think seeing it now.

    Find someone else, some people just do not understand curly hair. My mother has very curly hair, and she’s always had a trial finding a good stylist. But I think you did a better job doing your own hair than the stylist did, so I say trust your friends suggestion!

    I would say, just find someone else. If you went for a trial and the hairstyling/makeup artist wasn’t able to connect to your vision, find someone else. I had a makeup trial with a woman who was recommended to me and when I went in, she instantly got me and did a fantastic job. Then I had a second makeup trial with someone else (we’d already booked the trial and it was the morning of my shower anyway, so I figured why not have my makeup done for the shower, as well) and she was horrendous (wish I’d done my own makeup for my shower). Then I went for a hair consultation and the woman was horrible!! And this point, I was in crunch mode and I didn’t have time to find someone new, let alone have more trials, so I ended up going with my makeup artist who also does hair. She did a great job, but I obviously regret not being able to have a trial. My advice to you is, get as many trials and names/numbers of stylists as you need. Do not be disappointed or frustrated with anything surrounding your look because it will carry over onto your day.

    I agree–find someone else.  She clearly did not honor or was not capable of mimicking the specific style you wanted.  What she gave you was really dated and those barrel curls are NOT at all what Emmy Rossum has in that first pic.

    $110 for a trail…?!? Holy cow… is that the normal price.  I sure hope that’s regional because I usually get my hair cut, styled, and colored for around $80 and that includes my eye brows.

    I don’t think the curls match the inspiration pictures.  You want wave not a sprial right?

    I say get someone else, one that maybe does more than 1 style trail

    Are you explaining that you want the sort of messier more edgy look JUST like is in the pics?  I suspect the stylist is just doing the neater more perfect version of what you’ve shown her. I’ve had similar problems and had to explain very strenuously that I want the red carpet version of a style, not the prom version.

    I personally like the look of it pinned back.

    If you don’t like what you received, then get another trial elsewhere. Don’t ever settle for something that is just “ok” or that you hate or it will show in your pictures.
