Correct me if I’m wrong..but isnt the entire purpose of a hair trial for the stylist to style your hair EXACTLY the way it is expected to look on the big day? Why is it every trial I have been to, the stylists seem to “half-ass” it? It falls out, it’s frizzy..its messy..yet you still pay 75.00 for said “trial.” is this par for the course? Are my expectations too high? Or are my stylists lazy?

@lilsbride: lazy, for $75.00 they better do the job right! How else are you going to know that they can do it on the day of your wedding?

My first hair trial was like this. “Oh I’ll do it better the day of.” Ummm no. Needless to say I switched stylists.

We tried my style two different ways, so it wasn’t perfect because it went from curly to smooth so that I could get a sense of both. Did you have a similar experience? If so, then I think it’s fine to not have it 100%. If not, then I agree you should definitely deserved to have her full effort and attention.

I’d not have paid full price for a bad job,.

Uhhhhh, no! I want to see exactly how it’s going to look the day of. The whole point of a trial is to get it perfect and also so you can switch if you’re not happy with the stylist.
I’d have to think of some nice way to say something, maybe “I’m not comfortable confirming my appointment for the wedding day until we have it just right. Can we please play with a little more until it’s how it will be the day of?”

That’s lazy. My hair stylist didn’t do it EXACTLY how it was going to, but that was really more my fault – my bangs were too oily from the day and my hair was a bit frizzy. So yes, it obviously looked better on the day-of. My stylist did my trial for free though.
