    I would do a trial run yourself and see how you like it.

    I agree that it does look a bit “prom” and I can also see pins in it.  If you think you can do a better job I would go for it.  Is there only one hairstylist in your town?

    @rusticgirl:  Don’t DIY, find a different stylist.

    I think your hair looks really pretty, but if it’s not what you wanted and it didn’t hold up, then I’d look for another stylist before deciding to DIY.  On the other hand, you have lots of time to practice DIY hairstyles at home, so maybe if you practice a few times between now and then it will work out exactly how you want it to!

    My only issue with it is her not using hair spray and the style not lasting. I think it looks fine, but if you and your sister can do better, then go for it. But do a trial with the two of you before the wedding so you aren’t stressed about it the day of.

    I would see if you can find someone else to do it and if not please do LOTS of trial runs on your hair. I was thinking about doing my own hair until I tried it and it was the BIGGEST disaster.

    I think it looks nice, but I suppose if it fell out that it’s no good.

    She needs to use hairspray, and make it look neater. Or if you can do barrel curls and pin it up like that, do it yourself. I did my own hair early the morning of my wedding, and am very happy I did. It was relaxing, and nice to be away from people for a little while. But I was confident in my ability to create the style I wanted.

    I don’t think it’s TERRIBLE, but I can see what you mean.  If it’s not what you want, it’s not what you want.  I’ve never met a stylist who “has a thing against hairspray”, though.  I think you need to get your hair done and PAMPER yourself a bit!  Good luck!

    I agree it is not the best skill I’ve seen. I would suggest another stylist or DIY. Seriously what stylist “has a thing against hair spray?!” I don’t love it but for a wedding?! Seriously…

    I agree with some of the PPs. Do some trials with your sister and then decide. Ooh, and show us! 😉

    I think you should do your own hair- just do a practice day with your sisters. The style you have chosen isn’t very complex and I think you would do a better job yourself. Against hairspray?? What? lol
