Hmmm that’s awkward. I would definitely be concerned as well if I were you. I think you should try to arrange a backup plan just in case. If anything goes awry at the trial, you’ll know what you need to do. 

I don’t have any advice about the discount – I am so awkward asking for anything like that so I  no help there. 

Good luck!

I would not ask for a discount. In fact, if I were as unhappy if you seem to be, I would go ahead and cancel with this gal and do a trial elsewhere. I know it seems scary to find someone else at such a last minute, but there are so many talented hair stylists out there that I truly think you’ll find someone else that you feel more comfortable with.

I think you have 2 options: 

1- Use her and try to get over the anger on the day.

2- Find someone new who is available and start with a clean slate.

I’m pretty lazy, so I would probably just use her and hope for the best. Yikes!

I think it would be awkward to ask for a discount. What would you do if she said no? Maybe you could let your unhappiness be reflected in her tip?

I don’t think you should ask for a discount. If you’re truly worried about it you should find someone else.

I think if you ask for a discount you should only do so as you’re paying on the day of your wedding.  Otherwise it could lead to hurt feelings and bad service.  Or “ok fine, find someone else!”

@chercee:  i would either cancel and book someone new (if you can find someone!) or pay her fee.  I don’t think you’re in a position to ask for a discount at this point unfortunately.  I don’t think the hair stylist would think your ‘stress and suffereing’ is worth anything to her (but I totally get wahy it feels that way to you).  I hope it goes well!

Find a new salon. It’s not worth messing around with an unprofessional hair lady!
