So, I had my hair & makeup trial a couple of days ago. It went well - I liked the makeup and there were 2 hairstyles that were very nice. I also wanted to try a low bun (will post a few example photos) but I just don''t have enough hair so it looks funny. I was also really tired at this point...

What do you ladies think? Do you prefer the more glam with the side bang? Or the more sweet-romantic pulled back? Should I try to go back and do the low bun with some extensions (she offered to try again for free, I didn''t have the extensions with me...)

What about the makeup? I told her I wanted really natural, and even had her take a little bit off. But in the photos it looks much lighter than in person...

I think I like the glam one too. But maybe less bang? What are you leaning towards?
 

Definitely. Maybe

Ditto. I think a little less bang. Overall it looks nice though.

I really love wearing makeup and I like it to show "natrally" in pictures. However, my idea of "natural" in pictures is me actually wearing a lot more than my everyday.

The glam one - I think the other one looks a little too high school prom to be totally honest.

The makeup does look a bit light in the pics, I guess you need to decide which you prefer, a little more make-up that you would normally wear on the day and fabulous photos, or feel 100% comfortable with your makeup and look a little light on in the pics.

I am loving your hair though, you are very pretty, you will look stunning on the day. I am super jealous of your long hair!!!

I'm drawn more to #1, but I'm interested to see how the bun looks. You have the right kind of hair to do the soft romantic looks. I'm so jealous!!

edited to add-
I do think you need a bit more make up. Especially in the cheeks.

Love the glam hair of #1- it''s fabulous. #2 looks a little too "sweet" for me.

When you say "less bang" do you mean less hair out, or shorter bang? I am considering cutting off 2-3 inches so as to have "actual" bangs if I go with that style. It is actually just more like a short layer right now.

The bang in the first one and the hair mostly down in the second are there for purposes of concealing my sticking-out ear. That''s right, just ONE ear!

I think I was leaning more towards the second photo, mainly because that''s more like how I wear my hair normally. But, most people I show it to prefer the more "glam" look...

less bang means less hair in the bang hanging to the side. The bangs hanging down to the side are too thick, too much bang there, so pull a bit more of it back and have a thinner section of bangs hanging. i think the length is perfect.

I love both hairstyles - honestly - go with whichever you prefer, they both are great. Im thinking you really like #2.

After - Sweet/romantic
I like the hair pulled back. LOVE the hair.

If I can be honest though... you look a little washed out. I would have her give you a little more color, bring out your cheek bones and define your eyebrows better.

I like the glam look as well but go with what makes you more comfortable and happy. Either looks is lovely.

I like the glam better between these two, but I think that I would like the romantic more with more and bouncy curls, especially once you add a veil. But, I think both look great.

I like the second ''romantic'' hair-do although I''d love to see a low bun on you.

I do think you need more colour, make-up wise. Is it possible to pair up the romantic hair with a bit more glam make-up or would that look odd?

I think I definitely need to amp up the makeup a bit so it shows in photos...

The makeup is actually exactly the same in both photos. I think it may look different due to angle/lighting.
