I would review your contract and if you can get out of it, I would. I don’t even think it’s a matter of her being unreasonable or unavailable, I’m considering more the fact that I wouldn’t want to work with her.  It’s such a minor thing in the grand scheme and it really shouldn’t be a point of stress.

Check the contract. There may be a chance that there is nothing about canceling in it, or canceling by a certain date (I know w/ one of my vendors, as long as I give them 4 weeks notice, I can cancel but I loose my deposit). If you are able to cancel, you’ll likely loose your deposit -but maybe try talking it over with them? Is it just one person working for herself, or are there other stylists? I just ask b/c if you can’t cancel, I’m hoping that thre are other people and maybe you will like one of them better – or better yet, one will be available for your shower. 

As for not being available for your shower, 3 weeks notice really isn’t that much time – a lot of people book their hair/makeup further out than that, so if she has a wedding that is far away, that may be causing the issue. If you really want, you can try checking with her to see if she can be flexible that day (or maybe that day doesn’t work b/c she has 2 weddings, her son has an important Boy Scout event, she will be on vacation, etc.). if she is doing a morning wedding, maybe there is a chance that if your shower isn’t til afternoon, she could work around that. 

If you really don’t like her and the contract sounds like you won’t be able to cancel, you can try talking with her. Personally, I’d explain that your wedding planner gave you the wrong price (absolutely true!) and that you just can’t afford teh price difference. Further, I’d tell your wedding planner about this – if I was covering my wedding party’s hair and makeup, plus my own, I’d be really mad about a $20 difference! That adds up quick!

Check the contract, it doesn’t seem like she is holding up her end of it. Also, talk to your wedding planner and let her know that you are very unhappy with the hair stylist service. She is the one who recommended her, maybe she can step in?

@JustMarried51912:  I would still look at that contract and see if you can get out of it.  There are plenty of stylists that come to hotels to do hair/makeup, I’m sure you can find another.

I just wanted to let you know the bride’s hair and makeup will more than likely always be more because there is more work for the bride. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try to find someone else for less, just wanted to let you know what to expect. Hope This Helps

I know I wouldn’t want to work with someone that is already not working with you! here’s a little something Craigslist on events has great deals with things like that people trying to fill a portfolio or calender. Or do u have a cosmetology school near you they are great to have things like that and cheap as well for nails!
