    Love the make-up, I think it’s gorgeous.

    As far as the hair goes, I think that your inspiration photos may have caused confusion, as to me, the hairdresser has got pretty close to the second photo; so I wonder if there was confusion when you asked for curls like the first, but volume like the second, and if she thought you wanted something looser, and, for want of a better word ‘flatter’. Could you perhaps talk to her about your worries (you should probably have been direct at the trial TBH as that’s what it’s for; I plan on being TOTALLY honest at my trial, because it’s the one shot I get at making sure it’s ‘perfect’) and arrange another trial? I just think doing your own could be stressful, and I’ll be honest: while I love the back and the curliness of your attempt, the sides/top of hers were much better IMPO, as it’s much smoother and sleeker.

    Also, I wouldn’t be too harsh on her for using a lot of product: you have what looks to me like thick, heavy hair, and it will not keep it’s curl all day without a lot of product. At the same time, you’re right in that it needs to be curlier, as the way she’s done it, it will likely drop during the day and end up quite flat.

    I say do it yourself!  Don’t let others talk you into hiring a hairdresser just because ‘that’s what you’re supposed to do’.  You are already much happier with what you did, why waste more time and energy trying to get someone else to do what you were already able to accomplish!

    If I could do my hair like you, I wouldn’t be hiring a hair dresser.  You look amazing!

    I would speak up. If you have already paid her and are locked in then tell her your concerns. I think the trial looked to structured. You are paying good money and NEED to pleased with the service
