Hmm.. I see what you are saying, neither trial looks super glamorous. I’m not sure what else to suggest that goes along with what you’ve been envisioning. Have you considered extensions? That might be the only way to achieve the look you seem to have your heart set on.

I really like the first updo. Kust ask to have it done a little smoother. The finder waves look good too, but I can see them getting messy throughtout the night.

I like the first one other than the bangs, the way she puffed them out looks out of place. Could she shellac the bangs back  or to the side with the rest of the hair?

And I agree with you about the finger waves. While I like the back of it, the finger wave isn’t done well enough to look intentional, because it is not continuous through all the hair.

What about something a bit more simple, but still with the 60s vibe? I LOVE this high pony of Reese’s, makes me think of the original Barbie dolls. You could definitely put extensions in the ponytail of this!

Or like J-Lo’s look here?

I think these simpler styles will give you better luck since you are crunched for time!

I agree with PP – I love the back on the first pic, but the fringe (Bangs?) doesn’t work. The Renee shots are great – height at the back, 60s vibe and modern twist. You could do that with an updo?

I feel like she needs to put some kind of smoothing agent in your hair before putting it in a updo? There’s too many flyaways right now that I think makes it look messy (which is fine if you were going for that look). There needs to be more gel/hair spray to create that sleek look that I think would add to the glamour that you want.

Of the two I like the finger wave look the best. I think in the back the hair needs to be tucker under not above like she did on the “plain” side. Does your stylist think setting your hair longer in curls will help the waves more?

More bobby pins, more smoothing agent like a Frizzease and more hair spray.

And also don’t forget your inspiration pics are in a studio with lots of lighting that are probably adding to that sleek glamourous look. I think you will likely get that in your pics as well.

Where are you getting it done and are you set on that place?  If I might suggest Matt at Blonde Salon, he is a freaking super star hair dresser!  He has been offered spots at some of the largest teaching salons in the country and is very well known by other stylists.  I know that he has a 2pm still open as I just verified my 1pm with him and was chatting with the counter girl.  Usually it takes months to get into him.

I agree with @Gerbera – I think both styles would look great IF your hair was sleeker. Whether the person uses mousse, friz oil, whatever, it will help it look more sophisticated. I think the finger rolls would look great if the stylist does something like this.

@Button: Yup, if you are in Omaha I highly suggest it, well not the whole salon, only Matt.

I really like the first up-do if you can get it to look better.  Explain that you want a modern look of that up-do.  I suggest finding a new hair stylist.  Hopefully someone will be able to help you.

What about a classic french twist?

Honestly I think the problem is the stylist,  I have seen many people have extensions worked into an updo and I plan to do the same thing. I think your hair stylish is just not that good and doesnt know the right products to use to get the sleek look you want
