Hair Trials

In the past 2 weeks I have had 3 hair trials. Each one lasts about 2 hours and other than this last one today, they have gone well. 


You might recall that I had an impromptu hair trial while back in Vancouver, with the friend that used to cut my hair. I just explained to her what I wanted and she came up with what you see in those pics. I was very happy with it! I took these photos and this Carrie Underwood one...



...and explained to the stylist what I wanted. The first trial was more of a "get-to-know-my-head" session. He played around with my hair, not really making anything solid, but trying to get an idea of what would look good. This is how it turned out...

The back I liked but the front, well, not so much.

Here it is from the other side. 

Like I said it was very casually taken up so he could get a sense of things. Neither he nor I were happy with the front, of which I don't have a picture to show you, but it did nothing for me. So a week later when I went back, I asked him to make the curls thicker (which he had already thought of) and to make it neater and more compact. He took my hair up much easier and quicker the second time around, giving us more time to play with the front. And here's what we came up with
As you can see, its a little neater and, I think, more elegant looking than the first trial

I took my flower clip to try out too and loved the way it looked!  

Again I don't have a good picture of the front, but he took my now too-long bangs and swept them back and slightly to the side. I was really happy with how the overall style turned out, and was happy stopping there with the trials. He wanted to try one more though and so I went back today. This is all I have to share:

Me looking like something out of star wars! hahaha

I didn't take any pictures of this last trial because I didn't like the style at all. It was too pulled back, too tight, and gave me a headache. So as things stand, I am going with the style he created during the second trial. I am very happy with it and hopefully all will go well with recreating it on the actual day!

Fingers crossed!

I LOVE the 2nd style!!! It's kinda like what I ended up with only I grew my bangs out & had it all pulled back off my face.

That last pic is pretty funny though! LOL
