I would just say something like:

I’ve decided to go with another vendor. I will keep you in mind for any future make-up needs. Best wishes!

I think they are probably used to it so I would just be polite and leave it at that.

@nawella:  Yep, I’m with the pp. Don’t make a big deal out of it – just thank them for their time, and explain that you’ve decided to go with another salon. 🙂

“I really appreciate the help and services you have offered so far, but I have decided to go with a different vendor for the rest of my hair/makeup needs.”

As long as you keep it polite and professional, they will handle it professionally.

I agree with what @chipsnsalsa: said. you shouldn’t even let yourself feel bad. they were the unprofessional ones: 

1. they should not have posted those photos on facebook w/o you signing a model release form. (or at the very least asking you verbally.)

2. their emails should come across as polite, not put-out, even if you had an awkward moment with them. you are the customer.
