You have every right to want to go somewhere else, this is ridiculous!
Firstly, if you tell them you want your hair down, they should do your hair down. Sure, suggest ideas and modifications but to insist you have an updo when you dont want one is not on. You know how you want to look on your day and that is your choice, no one elses.
I also don’t agree with her theory that natural looking make up can just be winged on the day. It is actually an art to do natural looking make up and everyones version of ‘natural’ is slightly different so it is still important to trial if thats what you want to do then you can relax and know what to expect on the day.
To be honest, this lady seems quite unprofessional to me but I understand you dont want to confront her about it if that isn’t your way. I would do as a PP said and just contact her and say that someone has offered to do your hair as a gift so thank you for her help but you are going to go with the other person. Either that or tell her that upon reflection, you really do want your hair the way that you showed her originally and you’ve had a trial with someone who has managed to achieve exactly what you wanted so you are going to use them on the day instead.
Either way, dont just go along with it to keep other people happy. You want to feel confident with your hair and make up on the day!

Please, for your own peace of mind, find another stylist.

She doesn’t know what she’s doing if she thinks she can just wing a natural look for you, given how far off the mark she is with the hair.

I’m sorry, thank her for her time and please find someone different. The updo that she did looks awful and definitely wouldn’t hold for a full day. The inspiration picture is simple and beautiful. Find someone that is going to listen to what you want for your wedding day. You’re already going to have so much going on that day, you don’t need to add being stressed about the hair/makeup person to the list.

I had a very similar experience. Mty mom convinced me to go to her salon for my hair trial because all of the ladies there are WONDERFUL. I showed up with several different pictures and ideas for my up-do. The hair stylist had also picked out a style. After listening to my ideas, she said, “great, so we’re on the same page, I’ll just follow the directions that I already printed out” (ie not anything close to what I wanted).
She proceeded to do my hair half-assed and then kept saying “on the actual day I will do x, y, and z and it will look much better’. It turned out really bad and didn’t even hold for more than an hour or so. I already found another stylist, but I still need to “fire” this one, which is going to be awkward because the ladies at the salon love my mom.

Wow, please find someone else and explain politely that you have found someone who better suits you, etc. She totally butchered your really pretty heir and make it rough and frizzy looking. Not to mention she didn’t follow your inspiration pic (which was actually one of mine) at all.

You will definitely regret using her if you go through with it. I would decline as PP’s have said and find someone who will do a make-up trail for one thing. What professional MUA would advise just winging it on the wedding day? Sounds amateur as hell!

The inspiration photo is beautiful! I did a half up half down style and it was NOT in my way, I was really happy with it! Run from her, kindly tell her thanks but no thanks! lol

I had to read UR post twice bc i was so confused how one style looked completely opposite of the other.. I literally didn’t even know what I was looking at… She’s SO off base with the hair and I agree with
if she’s that terrible with the hair I can’t even imagine what the make up would look like! YEEEESH! Find someone else Bee! Unacceptable!

I second this.
Oh my gosh. Without sounding patronizing, you poor thing!!! (Your hair color is fantastic, btw!)
Write out what soymilk said in a nice card and find someone else. I can’t imagine someone being so audacious as to tell YOU what you need and that you don’t need a makeup trial. It may make things awkward. But a little awkwardness NOW is decidedly better than a catastrophe on your wedding day.

I know its uncomfortable and not something you want to tell her but its your wedding and you will have these pictures for the rest of your life. To her its just another day at work and it sounds like she doesnt care about her work. You will be so much happier if you find some one new. and TBH that updo is bad. and it looks like you have pretty red hair what a waste

I would definitely reccommend finding someone else. I went for a hair trial, I wanted an updo with braided accents. Well at the trial she concentrated on the updo part and said that since braids took a lot of time she would be able to do them on the wedding day. We also discussed having her do fake lashes for me. This was confirmed later over text or facebook message. Well the morning of, she gets going and I didn’t speak up to remind her about the braids, I had a lot of other things on my mind, well guess what no braids. And then what about my lashes? She “didn’t write it down” even though I had confirmed it in a written message, so she didn’t have anything ready and coudn’t do it. Again I had a lot on my mind and wasn’t able to pull up the messages as proof- but I really should have and asked for a discount on my hair as compensation. Overall it just wasn’t worth it for the price I paid. So if you aren’t happy go with someone else, because it’s unlikely that she will do what you want.
