I'm about ready to look somewhere else and could use some recommendations on salons or on-site for my wedding JUNE 4!!! Any ideas???
Some background and vent
I "booked" my hair and makeup lady (Autumn with STL Makeup) months ago but never got a formal contract or anything from her. She was just starting out back here in St. Louis and so I didn't pressure her to give me a formal quote on services for me and girls, after asking 2-3 times during conversations. She confirmed prices with me several times and said her other stylist was also same price. Well...I should have.
She called this morning asking if she had quoted me for cost for hair trial. The cost for makeup trial was included in her $200. So I told her no and she told me I'd need to pay that next month, so instead of $50 I needed to pay $100.
On the phone she also was concerned about starting at 8:00 for 2 bridesmaids, flower girl and me with 2 stylists at our house. This is something I communicated MONTHS ago and she assured me it would be sufficient. I also gave her a timeline several weeks ago to review since I was finalizing invitations. I asked my girls if they wanted makeup and they agreed yes...I'd feel bad going back and saying "sorry, I need you to do your own due to time constraints". So now I'm going to have to start hair and makeup at 7:00 a.m.! Really thinking about looking for other alternatives...sorry to vent.
