I agree with you, it needs to be fuller to match the style you wanted.  I’d say some clip in extensions would work for the bigger knot and I’m sure they could backcomb a bit or put in a bump piece to give you more lift at the top.  You look lovely… I’m jealous of your beautiful skin!

i’m with you on the lack of volume on top.  and the knot isn’t quite right, is it?

how long is your hair?  maybe the girl in the inspiration photo had more hair to work with?

what are you unhappy with in regards to the makeup?  i’d say more blush!

The inspiration also has more luminescence, so it pops her eyes out nicely. I think your artist got the main gist of it down, but needs more sparkle at your eyes.

Agree with PPs about lifting your hair up a bit more, or bumping it for fullness.

I think you need to add a bump it to the top just to get that volume you were looking for but otherwise it looks beautiful!

mayhaps a tad more definition on your brows…

the makeup looks lovely, i wish i could see a close up of your eyes though. 🙂

I think your make up looks lovely 🙂 I think your hair is quite differnt from the inspiration pic. You have a series of ‘knots’ that start much further forward and no root lift at the back. The inspiration pic (which i totally agree is gorgeous) is more of a messy bun. Can you do another trial before the Destination Wedding wedding?

I personally think your hair looks good but it isn’t what you showed the stylist! I don’t understand why some people don’t follow what the bride says. lol It’s irritating!

I think the makeup is pretty though, I definitely like it.

I agree with all pp. More volume and height with your hair (love the style BTW) and more definition on eyebrows and cheekbones (will make your eyes pop even more and look great in photos). Otherwise i think you look gorgeous, but like most of us, we want that wow factor so a little more is sometimes better lol.

@Laura_224:  The bump in the second photo is too low/behind your head rather than on the crown like the photos. I am almost tempted to say the stylist has too much hair in the top portion and not enough in the bottom bun area with curls to give it that messy look like the inspiration photo.
