Do you have the contract in writing?

Don’t be afraid of small claims court if necessary. 🙂 It may take a few months to get your money back, but you’ll get it – even if your agreement was not in writing.  Verbal agreements are still enforceable contracts.  I suggest you find a new stylist ASAP and put the contract in writing!

@mjls6912:  I would say those messages are enough if she agreed in writing (not necessarily a contract) to perform the duties at those prices.

When the agreement was made that is when the pricing is confirmed.

For example; my venue has increased their prices twice (food and site rental) since I booked in January 2011. My wedding last month would have cost thousands more had we not held them to the original prices.

@mjls6912:  I would just say “We agreed to $X price, I can forward the text/email to refresh your memory if you need”. Be polite but firm. Has she cashed the check yet?

@mjls6912:  Does she work for a company or is she independant? Does she do any advertizing? If she works for a company, I would file a BBB claim (if possible). If she is independant, I would make it clear that your recourse now will be to post a review of your experience in every outlet possible.

I would just let her know that you are planning to file a claim in court – maybe that alone will get her to refund your deposit?

@mjls6912:  agree with KCKnd2. I would give her a call and tell her you are ready to file a claim in court against her unless she returns your deposit in 2 days.
