GillyToo:  How much do they charge for a consult? I was a stylist for a little over 4 years, anytime I had someone in my chair and we’d just discuss what they wanted, there was never a charge. Once I started styling there was, so the trial and the actualy hair appointment I can understand charging, but not the consult. As for your hair not holding curl, have you ever used a wand curling iron? They hold so much better than a typical spring curling iron. I would check around to other places and see what they have to offer.

That’s strange and annoying that the salons ask you to pay for a consultation rather than answering your question over the phone.  Where are you located?

My only suggestions are to look for a salon that caters to an older clientele, since they may still use roller sets, or to look for a stylist/salon that does vintage styling.  Offbeat Bride or a local store that specializes in vintage/vintage-style clothing may be able to give you a lead on the latter.

I’m a hairstylist, and I’d never charge a new client for a consultation! A trial is different, but a consultation should always be free. That’s absolute insanity.
