I don’t think you’re being too picky!  Those hairstyles are quite different.  I LOVE your inspiration!!

I don’t think you’re being too picky – it’s definitely very different from your inspiration photo!

Oh, bummer!  It didn’t quite turn out like the inspiration photo (I actually voted for that one a while back).  I’m wondering if that style your hoping for  might be difficult to achieve since your hair textures are probably different.  It almost looks as if the “model” may have a natural curl or perm.  Best of luck!!

No, that’s so different, and I hope I’m not overstepping, but that side shot looks like she forgot to look at it…. 

I love that inspiration pic and have it saved myself as a top fave. Did she attempt to curl your hair at all?

I think you should be able to change things and ask for what you want – that’s why you do trials!

On the other hand, you have to remember that it’s very difficult for a stylist to exactly replicate a specific and intricate style.  Hair length, texture, and thickness will impact that, if nothng else. 

By all means, go back again, but it’s unlikely to look exactly like the picture.  And that’s ok, as long as she gives you something you like … maybe better!

Can you bring any other pics for her>  I know I brought half a dozen to show her things I liked, and she kind of blended those elements into a style that worked with my hair and face shape.

Looks like you may have too much hair to pull off the look in your inspiration pic… honestly, it doesn’t look much like what you were hoping for.  Frown

Just be sure you explain to her that you like the definition in your inspiration picture and that she should probably curl your hair before she puts it up to get the desired look.  Your bun will probably not be as small as your inspiraiton picture, but it should look more put together than I think your stylist did.

Maybe you can get a hair cut that would ease some of the burden in the bun?

Yea . . . she made it kind of look like a nest!  I agree with the girl above, I wonder if you have too much hair to match the picture nicely.

I have a lot of hair too… but whenever I’ve had my hair professionally styled into any kind of updo they actually “hide” some of my hair by tightly twisting it and wrapping it into a small bun that is covered up by whatever hairstyle I’m getting (that way they don’t have to even bother styling that section of my hair, it just gets hidden underneath).  I suggest trying a different stylist… I’m not sure this one really understands your vision.  I also worry that the style she actually gave you might fall out after an hour or two.  Did you leave it like that for a few hours after you got your hair done to see how it held up?

What you got doesn’t look even close to what you asked for.
