Okay, I’ve been to two trials at two places. Hair and makeup. I’m not super worried about the makeup, because I think that’s just a matter of playing around and figuring out what works best. But the hair is a REALLY big deal to me. I’m worried that one of my people just can’t do what I want. I showed both stylists the same picture of what I wanted for my wedding hair. (I’ve tried to give you back, side, and front pictures.) Here’s the first place:
Here’s the second place:
To me, it seems like the hair stylist I should go with is OBVIOUS. But, at that place, I didn’t like the front of the hairstyle or the makeup all that much. I don’t want to influence your input, so I’m hesitant to tell you which is which. I’d really like some input. I’m freaking out. I’m really insecure about my looks and looking beautiful on the wedding day means a lot to me. I am a mascara and go kind of a girl, so I think getting the right makeup is a matter of spending more time with the makeup artist, and I”m happy to schedule a second trial at whichever place I choose. I also currently have bangs, which is why the front of the hair is a bit challenging. I’m growing them and they should be long enough for a side-swept look by the time the wedding rolls around in 6 weeks. But I just….am lost. Help?? 🙁

#1. You’re gorgeous, girl! Whatever they do will just make you look even more lovely than you already look on your wedding day. Take a deep breath and just enjoy See the good and look past whatever you think is the bad. No one else sees it 🙂
Now, onto the hair & make-up!
I love the hair in the second picture. I think it looks a lot more simple and classic. But, maybe a little extra volume (like in picture one) will help to bring it up a notch and make it look a little more formal.
As of make-up, I was actually blown away by how dramatic and sexy it looks in the first picture. In the second picture, it looks much more simple and natural. So, it depends by what kind of look you’re going for on your day. If you don’t like either extreme, maybe they can meet you somewhere in the middle.
I’m curious to see your inspiration pictures and find out which you like and you’re thoughts about the two!

I vote for number 1. I love the way the curls fall in the back and it has a softer look in the front. Very pretty

I love the first one, but I think the hair is not quite perfect? I can’t tell you what I think is off, but I like the hair and makeup better in the first. You look beautiful!

You look so fantastic! The make-up in picture one is stunning. Your eyes and cheekbones look perfect. The hair in #1 has a lot of volume, and looks less clean. HOWEVER, the front design of the hair in #1 is great.
In #2, the make-up is so-so and the front design doesn’t do much for your beautiful face. The back design is clean and classic.
I’m not much help, am I? Overall, I like #1.

You’re gorgeous! I’d definitely go with the makeup in #1 — not sure I’d even change it. Your features pop, and that’s what you want on your wedding day. I also like hair #1 better, especially in front. If they can smooth the back a little, then I think I’d go with place #1.

I actually like the second one. Your makeup looks really pretty too. Do you by chance have a picture of your inspiration?

From the back and side, I like the second one. And from the front and in terms of makeup, I like the first one.
And, just have to throw it out there that if YOU are insecure about your looks, then I am hopeless! Because you are GORGEOUS!

I liked the back and front hair of the 1st place and I liked the makeup of the 1st place. I think I liked the side of the 2nd place- how that piece is rolled and brought to the back. BUT your makeup is fantastic from the first place and I LOVE the volume of the first hair.
Tell us your fav!

You all are very very sweet. Okay, I’ll come clean. I LOVE the makeup at the first place. Like, there’s nothing I would change. And I prefer the front of that hairstyle. But, the back is not working for me. My ENTIRE head is covered in curls and that’s not really what I wanted. Here’s my inspiration pic (I found this through facebook stalking, and I don’t know this girl because she’s a friend of a friend, so I’m only going to show the back of her head).
So the second place really did a better job with the back of the hairstyle. I mean, the first place didn’t really get close to this picture. And honestly, I hated the front of the second one but I didn’t love the front of the first one either. I don’t know what I want for the front. So there you go. Any ideas about who I should go with, if I should go back for a second trial, and what I should say to get what I want would be very much appreciated. Thanks beautiful bees!

You are gorgeous! I like the front of #1, the make-up of #1, because even though it is probably not as natural for you-it does accentuate your gorgeous features and makes you look more womanly than the more natural look of the make-up from #2 photos. I also like the back of your hair better in #2.-it looks more sophisticated, as does the make-up, so like bluestuff, if they can fix the back of your hair, more like #2, I’d go to place #1!!

I loike the makeup of the first pics but the hair of the second. I do NOT like the side view of the first hair pic at all. Just being honest!
Oh, and you’re gorgeous and will be even more so on your wedding day! Good luck in your choice!

#1 because the makeup looks a bit more formal and the hair in the front looks better. However, from the side and back I also like the hair in #2. But overall, #1. I think you should go with what makes you feel good because from an outsider’s perspective, you’re pretty and I’m sure you’ll look pretty either way, but being confident is important.

I like the second hair better. It looks a lot more organized in the back. The first hair just looks messy in the back to me, but the front might be better in the first pic because it seems to have more volume.
