So I went for my hair trial last weekend and showed the stylist 2 looks that I liked, both vintage, but one was more 40s and the other was mroe 60s. I hoped she would at least try both somewhat, but she jumped right into the 60s look. She didn’t try the other look at all and at this point, I’m 90% confident I’d prefer the 40s look. The question now is, do I (with 2 weeks to go) pay more for a second trial or should I risk going with a hairstylist friend that offered to do my hair? I should mention, that I had planned on going with a different friend in beauty school up until about a month ago when he flaked and I would be more confident in someone that I was actually paying to be there at this point.

How upset will you be if on your wedding day, your hair isn’t exactly how you pictured it?
I am the type of person who wouldn’t care too much, but if you are the type of person that would, I would suggest paying for another hair trial.

If you think you’ll want the 40s look, definitely pay for a second trial. That is a hard look for many stylists to achieve, and you definitely want to make sure your stylist can do it properly before the day of the wedding. And if she can’t, that gives you time to find a backup hairstyle.

It depends on how stressed out about this you are. If you are really worrying about it then I would pay for another hair trial just for peace of mind.

This is what i prefered but she actually did something more like the one below. I was flustered after the appointment. I was on the fence about both styles, hence the trial. If she couldn’t do this one, why wouldn’t she just mention that? I think this goes much better with my dress. Did I mention my nephews called me Snooki all afternoon with the poof?

Snooki ruined the poof for everyone!
But, only you know your friends. If you’re worried your hairstylist friend will flake, I wouldn’t use him/her. You don’t need that kind of thing to worry about on your wedding day. If you don’t use him/her I would definitely pay for another trial, because I thinking seeing a picture of a hairstyle on someone else and seeing it on yourself is so different. What if the hairstylist performs the style perfectly but you just don’t really like it? I’d shell out the money to play it safe.
