Hair trial

So I had my hair trial, but now I am not sure I like it. I don't ever wear my hair to the side so I think that's my problem, I also want more height on top. What would you change? Excuse the no makeup!

    I think it looks nice, though if you aren't happy with it, I'd suggest looking for a different style.

    Maybe if it had a bit more height, like you said...and what about embellishments? Pearl/crystal bobbypins or ribbon or something?

    I think it looks great from the back but I agree I think you need more height. Did your stylist tease your hair first? What do you think about making the top look a little more like this but instead of going straight back like mine it would go to the side.

    (sorry it's easier for me to just show you my thread with the pics already on it haha)

    Thanks ladies Smiley smile @laudie, she did not tease it, we talked about her adding height on the day of, though. @belais, i was thinking of doing a flower in the back towards the middle to fill it in a bit more, but I am just not sure! I ultimately think I'd be more comfortable wearing it half up/down but my layers are so screwed up I'm not sure if it's an option, and the hair dresser hasn't answered an email I sent her last week asking her opinion on it. I'm really bummed I booked her based off of her rave reviews, if she wasn't so expensive, I would cancel but I'd lose $350 so it's not an option!

    She really should have teased it IMO...maybe have her try that first...my stylist teased it and it starts off really high but once she starts putting the curls in it really comes out at a good height.

    @Christina - I think a flower in the back would look lovely. Smiley smile If you're spending hundreds on your hair, it should be how you want it. If she hasn't gotten back to you, try calling her or emailing again. It sounds like she's getting paid well, so she should be responsive and answer your questions. If you want it teased or half up/half down, she should be able to provide input.

    If you don't wear it to the side often, maybe put it to the back? I love the side look, but am refusing to do it for my wedding BC I fear in 3 years it will be outdated. I know everything at one point becomes outdates, but I'm going for classic. I agree with teasing to give you height!

    I think it look great! But if you are totally happy, tell your stylist you want more height and maybe do the same kind of style just in the back. I am sure they can accommodate this!

    It looks great from the back! I agree with the other ladies, some height will do wonders.

    Maybe make the twist in the back more defined or have the curls pinned diffrently, you cant really see the curls the way they pinned it

    I love it, but definitley think it would look better with some height/volume! I'd like to wear a similar style for my wedding : )

    I think you look freaking adorable!

    ETA: I saw your comment about your layers being funky. Do you think they will grow out more/correctly in the time until your wedding?

    Thanks Monica Smiley smile

    I don't know. The stylist said not to cut it until after the wedding if I am wearing it up so I can get length. But if I'm wearing it down I think I need it cut to blend the layers better.. I also have clip in (very expensive clip in) extensions that I could cut to my hair. I asked her about her opinion on this and timing, but didn't get an answer... I will email her again now.

    I love it, but if you want it more in the back, add some height to the top of your hair and put the bun of curls in the back. That is what I did. I loved it and got tons of compliments.
