    What was it about the hair trial that you didn’t like?  When the trial was going on, did you say you didn’t like it? 

    I did a hair trial trying to use a borrowed headpiece from my sister.  My hairstylist did his best but I told him I didn’t like it with the headpiece and he said he didn’t either.  We pulled it out and talked about how we might change it.  I’m going to go in for a second hair trial next week and we’ll try again.

    My trial was a disaster. I have decided to do mine myself.

    niahc :  trial was “meh” – actual wedding day was a disaster. wish i had done it myself. trust your instincts. you’ll be much more upset if you dont like your hair on your wedding day than you will for having potentially made things awkward with your stylist.

    My motto is always “never pay for something you don’t really want” and I’d say that applies here, as well. A free hair trial should not commit you to using his service. I think that’s part of what the trial is for! If it didn’t work for you, let him know you appreciate the trial but have decided to do your own hair, but you would love to come back to him for color in the future (assuming you want to). If he’s a professional, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Do what you feel comfortable and happy with. If you *will* continue getting services from him I’d thank him, tell him you’re going in a different direction and you’ll be back for your next color. Imo if you won’t be back I’d give him the amount he’d charge for a trial or look and see how much other stylists charge for a trial in your area. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean he didnt take time and provide you with a service. That’s me though.

    Things like hair and makeup live on for eternity in photos. I won’t settle for something half decent. It should be something you have to at least like, better love!

    The whole point of a trial is to see what will work for the wedding day — that includes the stylist.

    If you didn’t like his work, don’t hire him. Even if things did get awkward, you’d still be doing the right thing.

    Every hairstylist will tell you they can do hair for a wedding but not every hairstylist does wedding hair all the time. So if you weren’t loving how it went and your confident in doing your own hair stick with that. I personally wouldn’t want the added stress or trying to do my hair. But that’s me.

    Just tell him thank you but you’ve decided you want to do it yourself. He won’t be upset. The wohle point of a trial is to decide if you want to go with someone or not.
