No, I did not.  My stylist has set prices for all her services.  I have never questioned that.  I could go somewhere cheaper, but to me it’s not worth it.  I love my stylist!

I never budge on prices and without sounding rude sometimes when they do i will say im not free even if i am because i used to find the pple trying to bargin usually the most difficult to get the money from!

I never try and negotiate either. I feel like they will want to not do something if I did that. If anything, like a PP said, I find a more reasonable stylist whose work is similar.

Umm, no, I wouldn’t do this.

Every hair stylist I’ve seen has published prices. There are a range of hair stylists in my area, all at different prices, to suit different budgets. If you can’t afford/don’t want to pay what they’re asking, find someone cheaper; simple.

I’m paying ‘top dollar’ for my hair and make-up: £350 (around $525) for hair and make-up on the day, and a trial. I could have found someone for half that; I chose not to. I would never have dreamt of haggling with the person I chose; her prices are what they are, and if I didn’t want to spend that, I’d have looked elsewhere, not insulted her by trying to shave some money off.

Nope. My stylist (the one I go to for regular salon services) works at a salon whose prices are set. I’m only paying ~$80 for hair/makeup, so it’s not a huge deal to me.
