I would ask to see if a bridesmaid do your hair today to see if it looks good.  If not, I would quickly find a hairstylist who is willing to do a free hair trial/consult given your situation.  Maybe they’ll be kind enough to help you?  I know that it seems like you might have wasted your money but you should have the hair you want.

I had a hair trial issue, too.  My cousin’s hairstylist bf offered to do my hair and my bridal party as a “wedding gift” but then, asked that I pay for a hair trial (which I did for $100).  And, then took back the offer and said that he could only work on my hair.  The hair trial turned out ‘ok’.  With all that’s going on, I decided not to take up on their offer which they then said, “Please accept and take the offer.”  Uhh…no!

First o f all, you sound so sweet and sincere that I don’t think anyone could accuse you of being a bridezilla.

Second, can you call and talk to Christie and tell her you thought Laura tried really hard but it just wasn’t working for you and see what her solutions are? If you were my client I would suggest you come in and I do your hair while Laurawatches or videotapes.  She can then do one run on you while Cbristle watches and can correct as she goes.

third, can you choose a different style, or adjust the style you are looking for a bit?

Fourth, there are a ew stylists on this board that may be willing to critique the style and tell you what we would tell LAura to fix it.  I’m stylist and an owner so I would be happy to help you if I can.

Eta- I’m on an iPad.  Sorry for my hideous typing.

@AllShookUp:  I don’t think you’re being a spoiled brat.  I know a lot of people say the wedding day hair almost always end up looking better than the trial but how do you really know that?

What does your updo look like?  Maybe it is simple enough for another stylist to do? 

You’re definitely not a brat!  Far from it!
