If you never signed anything, I suspect you’ll be fine.

Nope, she can’t sue you at all. There was no money exchanged, and you did not give your consent to have her book that day. You’re fine.

I don’t believe she can sue you since there’s nothing in writing, no contract or even a reciept for a deposit. Did she threaten to sue?

Nope, I’m a stylist and we just had a party of 8cancel on us with 1 weeks notice. You can only be charged partially if you’re a no-show (if your salon has that policy)

If there is nothing in writing (email, contract, etc), she would have a very hard time proving her case. I wouldn’t worry.

She can’t sue you for anything. I work for a company that stands by it’s “verbal contract” but the verbal contract only comes into effect after a date has been set / customer has used the product.

In this case, SHE set the date and time without your consent and you certainly have no “product” to use.

She could probably *try*, but she would get laughed out of small claims court. Wouldn’t be worth her time or money to do anything. If you think this could be an issue, might be worth sending an e-mail or fax to her, versus phone calls, where you have something in writing.

I’m a salon/spa owner times three and the answer is no.

But I will say, she’s a moron for booking a party without a contract.  People who don’t now how to do business always get hurt financially.

Okay so the question is: CAN she sue you ?

Yes. You can file a lawsuit for just about anything. And people sometimes do. And it is a total pain in the ass because half the time they’ll never go anywhere. 

But based only on what you’ve said— I think it would be pretty stupid of her to do so because I’m not sure what leg she’d have to stand on.

If you never signed anything or gave a deposit I would say no.

Anyone can sue anyone for anything. Does she have a legitimate reason to sue you? No. Would she win in court? Highly unlikely. Is she threatening to sue? Usually people who make a bunch of noise about how they’re going to sue don’t actually do anything – they’re just trying to get a reaction. It’s the quiet people you need to worry about. Wink

i’m a hairstylist and i think what she’s trying to pull is ridiculous. if you never signed anything and never gave her any money, you’re fine. and it’s not like you’re canceling the day before. 5 weeks is plenty of time.

my makeup artist friend and i were supposed to do the hair/makeup for a wedding party for a friend of hers. they never gave us a deposit and we figured she’s friends w/ the girl, we don’t need to worry. the week of the wedding it was impossible to get ahold of her. we finally reached her the day of the wedding (on our way to her house!) and she cancelled on us. and since there was nothing signed or paid for, all we could do was turn around and go home :/

so yeah, you’re fine.
