I am hoping some unbiased perspective can help me out a little. My wedding is literally 2 months from today and after 3 hair trials with my regular hair stylist (who specializes in updos/formals) I am just not happy with any of these.
Originally I wanted a half up/down do with flowy curls but I am a bit concerned about heat and humidity the day of. So I have 2 trials for this style, one without extensions one with:
What I don't like: too poofy at the top and the curls make my hair too short obviously, but I do like how she sweeped hair across the front to hide my forehead a bit and the curls aren't too spiraly tight.
What I don't like about this one: curls are too spiraly, and the extensions are too long (she could cut them and said she would, but then didn't the day of my trial) plus this style just looks unnatural on me b/c my hair will never be this long it grows too slow. It also lacks shine and movement and is too "princsesy". My dress is a fit n flare and has a very pretty back with buttons down the back and is very sophisticated, this style would kinda hide the back and not mesh with the sophisticated look and I wasn't down with that). Plus major forehead!
So for #3 I tried it up and it was just kinda meh. Keep in mind no makeup on here but even when I went home and put makeup on I still wasn't feeling it.
What I don't like about this: my forehead looks huge, the pieces hanging in front got stringy really fast, the curls in the bottom of the do fell out about 45 minutes later, and the pics really started to hurt throughout the day.
I didn't show these but I have an almost fingertip length veil and a gorgeous feather fascinator. I did bring photos of styles I liked with me and I feel they either didn't translate well on me, or she didn't recreate them to my liking.
Any suggestions for different styles, etc. are very welcome. I am starting to get very nervous! Thanks and sorry this is so long!
