@OneDayMrsW:  I’m not a hair dresser, but my best friend is. I have no idea why the salon set you up with a first year stylist that clearly didn’t know how to do updos! A good rule of thumb when you don’t know the stylists is to request the owner of the salon or head stylist. It will cost more but be worth it. Just like any time you get your hair done – YOU HAVE TO SPEAK YOUR MIND! Stylists are not mind readers haha. Be specific, and if you don’t like something, tell them! They are used to and expect both positive and negative feedback. I think the fault truly lies in the salon for having the stylist step up before she was ready. A hair trial should take around an hour. You can ask them to change it around, but asking them to try several different styles would constitute more than one trial. If you request the salon owner/head stylist I don’t think you’ll have the problem of the person not being skilled enough. Good luck!

Ask for a senior stylist, or someone whos expertise is with bridal hair/updo`s. If you do go to a different salon,if your non confrontational like me lol, you could just ask if there is anybody available who specialises in bridal hair. If your feeling brave you could always speak to the manager and say you werent aware you would be put with a junior and really felt it wasnt up to a standard of paying $50 for.Again as @Weetzie:  says a hair trial should take around an hour although do take in to cosideration the length of your hair and the style you want (eg if your hair is quite long and the style quite complicated it may take longer)
