I asked the vendor about it and she replied that “it is stated in the contract that the $100 retainer is not applied to services.” So to her, the clause “All retainers must be paid directly and will not be added to balances due on the day of service” means that retainers are separate and do not apply to services. In my mind, it means exactly the opposite so I never questioned it when I signed it.

I chose this vendor based on the comments I read online. Most brides seem to like this makeup artist. Nobody mentioned in their comments about this retainer though so I am not sure if this is a new thing.
