I had a hair trial a couple of weeks ago ago. Over the phone, she had quoted me $100 for the trial, $100 the day of and $90 for each additional person (sister, mom, mother-in-law). At the trail, she said she forgot to mention that it would be another $100 because she had to open the salon on a Sunday. Also, she's the only person that works there, so she estimated it would take 4 hours for all of us (even though my mom and MIL have chin-length hair and just really needed their hair styled - no updos). It all added up to $570 plus tip and we had to travel a good 30 minutes to the salon.
Thinking about this, it seems crazy - especially the price! I'm also not totally excited about spending 4 hours in a salon on the morning of my wedding. Would it be ridiculous to go for a trial somewhere else? I called Dana Bartone today and got some prices - any reviews? What's the protocol for cancelling the first salon if I decide to do that?
