So I’m in the process of booking MUAs and hair stylists for my wedding (hooray!) Apparently, our date must be popular because even though we are still a year out, most MUAs and hair stylists are already booking up/booked!
In the struggle to find a hair stylist that I like, my photographer referred me to one of her favorite stylists. I value her judgment because she is nationally renowed and travels all over the country to shoot weddings…so she’s seen a lot and she’s seen the best of the best!
This stylist is available on my date, but it has taken her WEEKS to send out the contract. She mentioned some sort of emergency and thanked me for my patience. I can understand that, I’ve been there! However, when I finally received the contract two days ago, the prices were different (more) than we had originally negotiated and she had an incorrect number of people committed to having their hair done (and I definitely don’t want to pay the difference!!)
Should I shoot her an e-mail to sort out these details and trust that my photographer knows the best of the best in the industry? Or does she sound so disorganized that I should cut her loose? Her work is great, but now I’m nervous!

If you want to change hairstylist you can hire me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I do runway shows, photo shoots etc if you want pics etc dont hesitate to email me!
And for the hairstylist you wanted you did want a known stylist so that means she is very busy and have tons of emails!

crackktheskyy: *Warning Bells* I was in my friend’s wedding last year and she had a stylist contracted to come to her house morning of. Apparently she was difficult to get ahold of and would always have an excuse, but had great references and was really friendly.
Day of the wedding, we are all waiting around for her to show up at 7am. She was a no show! Wouldn’t respond to emails/calls/texts from the bride and a few BMs. We had to wait until salons started opening at 9am and split up, so we were all ready in time. She called the bride a month later with some random excuse.
Moral of the story, be vary weary of any vendor that is flakey like this.

crackktheskyy: I had an experience much like FutureMrs.Huemiller. My hair stylist no showed day of, and then tried to get us all to come into town to see her and have girls at her salon (which wasn’t the greatest quality in town) help her out.
We got on the phone and found appointments at other salons. If she seems flakey now, I wouldn’t trust her on my big day.

Sounds flakey; if you can, move on. On the other hand, my hair stylist was 30 minutes late for my trial due to a storm, but felt so bad that she showed up extra early on the day-of and included my mom’s hair for free.

Thanks bees! This thread is actually a bit old now, though! We went with a different hair stylist after the one in question sent a rather snarky e-mail. I’m very happy with our decision and the new company we are working with has some rave reviews!
