Can I email my hair and make up artist that I want to change the style after our trial?

I had my hair and make up trial this Saturday. I went for a "Hollywood Glam" look for my hair - my hair was curled with the left side behind my ear and the right side curled to the front by my face. The curls were so pretty and lasted all day. 

My make up was pretty too. I told her that I usually do a lot of nude colors/brown for my make up. I keep it simple, but still use eyeliner on the top lid and mascara. She suggested we do my usual look but "amped up." The end result was beautiful. 

She told me to see how I like it throughout the day and take pictures.

I had my first fitting that day too, so I was able to see it all together. I took pictures to see it all together at home. And even though I feel very pretty, I just didn't feel like it was me. The make up felt "too glam" for me. The whole look of my wedding feels very romantic and soft. I want to change it. With my hair, I felt that I was always trying to fix it. The curls didn't stay place, and I felt like I needed to keep my head still to not mess it up. I want to be carefree on the way I look on my wedding day. So I want to change that too. 

I feel bad, but is it okay if I email my hair and make up person saying I loved her work, and felt beautiful, but tell her my issues with it (felt too glam, didn't feel like myself, hair was a struggle keeping it in place/felt like i needed to keep fixing it). Does this mean I have another trial or suggest she come early on the day of just in case of issues? The changes I want to make are simple. I want my hair down and curled. My make up will be more of a soft natural look.

    Of course you can make any changes you want.  You have two decisions to make.  Do you have confidence that your stylist and/or MUA can work with you "on the fly" the day of your wedding?  If you can clearly communicate what you want, and have confidence in their talents, then just add some extra time the day of your wedding to communicate those changes clearly and calmly.  If you have concerns that you still are unsure as to what you want, is it worth the time and money to make an additional, but perhaps shorter appointment to discuss prior to the wedding?  You are the only one that can answer the question and make the decision.

    Had the stylist seen your dress and/or veil?  Could you perhaps bring the veil with to a second appointment?
