    I don’t understand. If you can get the same bobby pins for 99 cents at Walmart and there’s a smaller size bottle of the same hairspray that is cheaper elsewhere, why don’t you just do that? It doesn’t sound like your aunt is forcing you to buy from the beauty supply store. And honestly, even if she was, it’s $30 to make sure your girls have a “hairstylist recommended” hairspray. It’s the product your aunt obviously prefers to use, so I don’t understand why you can’t just buy it and then keep it for yourself afterwards. I get why you think the situation seems annoying, but step back for a moment and look at the big picture. It’s not a big deal.

    BakerBee16:  I would do what she suggested and get another stylist just because of her poor attitude.

    Sounds like it would be worth it to everyone involved to just have your BMs pay the extra $5 per person to not have to deal with your aunt.

    Eh, I pay $15 for my 9oz bottle of hairspray, and I spend a few bucks on a box of bobby pins every few months. Doesn’t seem that outrageous to me. However, given the minor difference in cost, I’d probably just opt to have my BMs go to the salon with me. More fun that way. 🙂

    I do hair for weddings. Being a licensed hair stylis that price seems high. If you can’t shop at a pro shop that would seem average. I mean even when I am doing family or friends I always still bring my own stuff and I don’t ask them to get it. I just add it into my pricing. If she wants to use something specific I would think she would get it herself or use whatever you provided. family and weddings can be so fun. Lol. Sorry she yelled at you. Seems a little Odd.

    BakerBee16:  I wouldn’t pay that much for the hairspray. There is some good hairspray that you can get that costs half that.

    Now, I would like to know when and where the last time you bought bobby pins (even at Walmart) for $0.99 was.

    My daughters do pageants and I have to invest a lot of time and money on their hair. I am pretty sure the last time I bought bobby pins (about 2 months ago) they cost almost $2.

    My hairspray is $25+. If you’ve used high quality hairspray before, you’ll notice the difference with cheap stuff so I can understand why she’d want it. Her name is on it. If the hairspray ends up being flaky like I’ve seen some cheap stuff do, then it looks like it’s a reflection of her work. 🙂

    If she is charging the bridesmaids then I don’t see why u have to buy the supplies. IMO either she does it for free and u buy the supplies or she charges and u don’t Buy them.
