Well, I just had a hair trial and my hair looks awful.

No fault of the stylist just that what I thought would suit me in fact makes me look like i am about 60 years old - and live in a shoe.

It's all nesty and just looks wrong. I thought maybe it was because I am in a jumper and not something with lots of skin (like a wedding dress), but I tried baring my shoulders and I still feel like the style is too old for me and just doesn't suit me.

I think I am just not a hair "style" kind of girl and maybe my hair just needs to be put up really simply with no fuss and no distinct "style" to it.

How confusing! I thought I had all this sorted!

I really think the problem is with that, is that there is no 'defined' hairstyle if you get waht i mean, the barrels arent really standing out, and the fringe is pretty basic..plz dont be offended, maybe something a bit more jazzy and defined!

Hi Zel,

Did you want it to look more like this pic in your album?

The problem that I can see from your trial is that your hair wasn't pulled back smoothly over the crown of the head, but it was piled loosely and rather messily at the back. It needs more structure to it.

Have another go with the hairdresser, but if she can't get it right then try someone else.

I have to agree with Renee and Angelbel, I think that the hairstyle is nice but needs to be more smoother IYKWIM. I like the look that you are going for but the curls do need to be more defined. Are you having flowers in it too? They will probably make a difference to the look.

I have to agree that it looks too messy and unstructured - I do like the unstructured pulled back look but then the curls need to be more defined - it's too 'floaty'. I agree that if it was sleek at the front it would look better. I don't think it's as bad as you say - just it doesn't look particularly special. I agree have another go but perhaps have more curls in the ends and a sleeker look at the front.

Im going against the grain and saying i dont think it looks that bad.

I will say thought, my hair colour is almost exaclty the same as yours, and i originally wanted to go for the Jacki O style that she had for her wedding which is very similar to what you have.
I have straight hair, and with the curls it just didnt seem to go. I think it was to do with the colour of my hair or something.
I think you'll find with your hair colour, it might look better if its more smoothed back, then you'll get a lovely shine. You could still have the same kind of look in whats pulled back though.

Sorry if i rambled a bit!!

I think the problem might be that it's down too low - it's not really 'up', if you know what I mean. You've got a nice neck and you should be showing it off!

Also as some of the other girls said, it looks a bit messy and dull. There's lots of flyaways and I think that might also make it look like you're a little older - shiny hair being associated with youth in our subconsciouses, and all that.

Did she iron it or blowdry it properly straight before she put it into the style?

I think you could get a better hairstyle. It isn't that it looks necessarily bad but it just isn't styled enough. It looks too casual.

I think your hairstylist should have professional blowdried your hair so that it had a sleek smooth finish and then styled it. I also agree that the pinned section is sitting too low.

Ange I totally agree with you. So many hairstyles look fantastic on blondes but don't look anything like what you want on brunettes. I hope you find a fantastic hairstyle that you just love!

Love the old lady in a shoe reference!

Sweets, I had a look at the pics, and I am with you.. I think it looks a little Granny from "Beverly HIllbillies".

You are a gorgeous girl, and I think it does need to be smoothed down, and really structured even if it is "loose" in its style if you know what I mean.

Try again babe. Dont be disheartened, Hair and MakeUp to me is like trying on wedding dresses... you dont always go with the first.. although I know it gets costly, but when you are spending so much on the day, and your photos will be with you forever, and need perfection.

Good luck! xxxxx

I really like the idea, but I agree with everyone above that is needs to be sleeker and the curls need to be a bit more shiny and neat - I think it will suit you wonderfully then, and even if you have some loose bits around the fringe they can be 'controlled' but still look natural.

Did your hair stylist use any mouse or serum or anything like that?

I really like the style you're trying for; however, I agree with girls are saying, that it needs to be sleeker and tighter. I also agree with the girls that it looks a bit informal. I wear my hair like this to work all the time!

I've attached a link for a bride who has a similar hair-do at her wedding which has been done like the girls said. Either her hair was very long or she's had it padded, but I love the look.

You'll have to scroll down the page a bit to get to it.

Good luck with your decision!

sorry babe but that looks like its been done by an amateur

there arent distinct curls its like she gave up and just pinned it and hoped for the best

there has been little care go into that hair style

Id move onto someone else

gosh they annoy me when they do brides hair not up to scratch - hope i dont offend anyone but

hairdressers dont need a degree!

a fact that is pretty darn obvious most of the time!!!

sad.gif yeah .. its a bit average .. .but if you were to go slick and have defined Laquer curls (barrel rolls) I think it would look stunning ... you can try these yourself with a friend and a curling Iron and hairpins ... they are really easy to do biggrin.gif

I think the style is missing one main thing .... HAIRSPRAY ... and lots of it !! tongue.gif
