Sounds like an awkward “This isn’t going to work out” call is in your future.

I don’t think you can ask for your money back… you were paying for a trial, you got a trial, you didn’t like it. I think you can just move on to someone else and count it as lucky that you found out ahead of time.

I mean, you CAN ask for your money back, but I don’t know that she’s got any moral obligation to give it back.

@likewoah:  EEEK! I would be so irritated at this. I don’t know how likely it is that you’d get your money back for the trial, but I would definitely complain to the owners about how the woman lied and charged you more than what was originally quoted. Then I’d find a new stylist!

@likewoah: I think you could agrue this point, but like the other girls said, they have your money now and as you didn’t complain at the time you’re probably unlikely to get it back.  I would chalk it down to experience and find a really great hairstylist x

@likewoah: I would call and complain to the manager. $75 is a lot to spend and it sounds like you were taken advantage of. Did you tell this person your wedding date before the appointment? Because if you did and she purposely withheld the fact that she might not even be available for your wedding until after you already paid, that is just wrong. If it’s a fancy place, they might be willing to eat the cost of your appointment rather than have a dissatisfied customer out there. At what point did she tell you that the price was $75 rather than $60? Again, if it was after your trial, then it sounds like you were purposely misled and then trapped into paying more.

Let the manager know that you were misquoted prices, that you were unhappy with the trial, and that you were even told (after you paid!!) that the stylist may not even be avail for your wedding. That seems like the biggest issue, along with the misquoting of prices, because why would anyone shell out money for someone who’s not even available for the wedding? 

Good luck! I know lots of people are saying to just let this go, but it’s not right that you were deliberately misled. You should definitely raise a fuss with the manager and see what happens. And be sure to review this person on Yelp.

@likewoah:  that is A LOT to pay for a trial…..

 

I would call explain the situation, and maybe ask for a partial refund considering she did say she knew you and clearly did not, sorry but thats shaddy I’d be a little bit upset if that were me.

@likewoah: Did you ask for a refund? I’m not surprised that she didn’t offer you a refund if you didn’t ask for one; of course she doesn’t want to lose money. Talk to her manager and demand a refund.
