A similar thing happened to me, I was having my makeup done for an engagement and I walked out looking like a clown, I complained and they gave me $100.00 voucher for my next visit. Unfortunately I had to rush home wash it all off and do my makeup myself anyway. Lucky they were a hair salon too, so I went back and got my hair done for free and have never gone back.

I would speak up and see what their response is.

For trails pictures are really helpful as they are visual people. Hopefully next time you will get the look you want.

Holy crap, your TRIAL cost $200?!  For that money, I’d expect to look like a freaking supermodel.  I wouldn’t pay.

It sounds like you laid out for them exactly what you wanted. They didnt deliever anything close, I would definately not pay or at least get a discounted price. Talk to the owner or the manager!!

You can’t actually not pay. You asked for a service, which they provided. Granted you were not satisfied with that service, but that doesn’t negate your obligation to pay. I second talking to a manager to discuss this. If you don’t pay and don’t discuss this with a manager, they could come after you for the money.

The same thing happened with me, and I paid.  I thought about speaking with the owner of the salon, but each stylist is her own boss and sets her own rates, and I knew what she would charge going into it.  She started the trial by arriving late and then talking about how her other client was waiting too.  It was rushed.  I wish I had asked her to stop and maybe rescheduled, but I paid and did not tip… in your situation, I think you should talk with them about it.  Maybe a redo, with out the hefty price tag?

@Krises: I agree – that’s why it’s called a trial. I think that the salon is looking for trouble by not asking you to pay the full amount upfront or before you left.
