I would like to look like this.
Really, I will probably look like one of these.
|From mom's June wedding|
|From SS1's August wedding|
Both of which leave me feeling rather... meh.
I suppose a different stylist could solve this problem, but the lady responsible for my two instances of non-inspiration above has been hired for my wedding already! She's my mom's hair stylist, and aside from being very affordable, she does a great job on my mom's hair. But my hair is really very different from my mother's (as is my taste)I don't really feel like she listens to me about my own hair. Picture one is what came from me saying I wanted "big, loose curls," but I felt like Shirley Temple all night. The second go-round was a lot better, but I still don't feel great about it. Maybe I need bangs again? Or extensions, so at least the curls go further down my back? I know I don't like what I see; I just can't figure out how to make it better! Or am I being too picky? D loved the results both times; maybe it's not as bad as I think?
Did you have problems communicating your dream hair to your stylist, or was it easy sailing?
