First of all, I think it’s dumb that your hair trial wasn’t included with the cost of paying for your wedding hair.  That’s ridiculous!!!  Some clip-in extensions might help.  I actually think it looks really pretty!  I’m sorry you’re so frustrated though =(

While I don’t think what they did is bad work, and it is pretty, it definitely is more prom-ish in my opinion.  Especially compared to what you were envisioning (BTW, I love the pics you were going for…both pics you posted were ones I’ve chosen for my bridesmaids Wink).  Did you let them know that it wasn’t what you were going for…or did you show them the pics?  Maybe you can call them for another trial if they knew how unhappy you were.  Again, I don’t think it looks bad, just really not what you were aiming for, and you shouldn’t have this as something that you’re worried about.

It honestly doesnt look bad but looks nothing like the photo you showed them! Maybe try somewhere else? I just did a friends hair for her wedding and it is the same length as yours, it is a bit short in the back but I think that style can be modified to suit your length TBH.

Hair extensions are a good idea though if you are really wanting something longer like your Carrie Underwood inspiration. I think that would look beautiful on you if you go that route and its better to be sure of what your hair will look like (and LOVE it) on your big day rather than just hoping your stylist can do what you want last minute.

Oh, and about the money…I had to pay $75 for the trial, and it’s still $160 for day of Frown

To be honest, your hair looks gorgeous like that. But it isn’t what you wanted and you shouldn’t settle for anything less.  Maybe some extensions would help? I am sure that with a little tweaking, you can have your dream hair.

I think if you want either of the looks pictured then you’ll want to go with extensions. Another option would be to find hairstyles of women with short hair. I do think your current length is the reason why it doesn’t look like the inspiration pics.

I find it funny that they couldn’t get the style that you wanted but were able to pin it back in basically what looks like a bit of a higher and tighter version of that style.

I like the style, it is a bit prom-like but it’s not bad! If you’re not feeling comfortable do you think you could find someone else for Sunday??

I think it looks so pretty!!  But you don’t love it, and that’s what matters.  If I’ve learned something about hair trials from these boards, it’s that I need to speak up at the trial appointment – right away – if I don’t like something.

Can you call her and explain that you weren’t happy and want to do another hair trial? Would she charge you?

I am not a fan of the trial, I’m sorry…I don’t understand why they couldn’t curl it and pin it like you wanted? Can you find a different hair dresser at this point?? If not, go back and say you are not happy and it is not what you want. They really SHOULD redo it for you.

@fivemonthsnotice:  I paid $130 for my hair & make up trial and I’m paying $230 for both on my wedding day. Just to give you an idea of prices in our area 🙂
