So today I had my hair trial and I was pretty diasppointed. I was envisioning loose waves and fullness but ended up with tight ringlets. I wanted some body on top but it’s pretty flat against my head.
The first picture is me at my dress fitting. I did my hair myself, just setting it in hot rollers. Keep in mind, I am TERRIBLE at styling hair. I was just trying to get the general look of how my hair would look down with my dress.
The second picture is at my hair trial. I feel like it looks like I did it myself! I actually prefer the overall look (though not perfect) of my DIY hairdo.
So, should I:
*Attempt to DIY hair-do similar to pic in dress;
*Stick with the hair-do/stylist from the trial;
*or Find a stylist who can give me a look similar to the one I did myself?
(PS: Please excuse my terrible roots. I know I need to get those touched up ASAP!)

I think that by the time you are actually getting married the “hair trial” look will have fallen to look like your “DIY” style that you prefer. If you start with the DIY style, I think you will end up with pin straight hair!

you are a natural beautY all the way! You don’t even need mak I hope you dont get offended but your so pretty w/o the makeup…I like the look so much better…hair and face. I wish I looked half as good as you not made up.

Unless your hair is rock hair with spray and there is zero wind and humidity, I think that first style will end up really flat after not that long. Plus if you’re not very good at styling I think the stress of doing it yourself on your wedding day is not an added stress you need.

I agree with PP. I love playing around with my hair, but I do not want to stress about it on the big day. However, if you aren’t happy with the trial, speak up! The stylist wants you to be happy. It might be worth doing another trial if you are so unhappy!

Thanks, everyone! I am afraid that my version of a hairstyle will end up very flat eventually. I can say that 10 hours later my professionally-styled hair still has the curl, and my makeup looks very fresh too. Maybe I need to learn to be more assertive saying what I have in mind…I think I’ll suggest (either to the orignal stylist or to someone new) to loosen the curls a bit (maybe use a bigger curling iron or brush them out a bit) and add some volume to the crown.
Thanks again for the feedback. I was feeling very down and truly appreciate the sweet and helpful comments. 🙂

I would talk to the stylist who did the trial. Plus, as PPs have said, the trial look may well relax into closer to the DIY look. How well does your hair hold curls?

@lucy33: I like everything about your DIY hair and makeup better. You’re stunning without all the makeup (and honestly, I think you look much younger without all that) and although the hair in the second picture looks nice, you look more like “you” in the first one. Not that I know you, but that’s just the vibe coming off the pics, if that makes sense…
Bye the way, your dress is beautiful, too…

@lucy33: I voted on the last one and the only reason why is because I think a hair stylist would be able to make your look last, and I’ve photographed a few weddings where the bride has done her own hair and it always stresses her out to get it perfectly.
