Funny Story about Beauty

I thought I will share a funny story since to me its funny. But I got turn down by a beauty company that does hair and makeup. I reached out with another question and they responded back with, “I am so sorry but the artist that were set aside for your wedding day are no longer available.” My friend reaches out to see if the same date of my wedding is available. And they answer her back, saying they are available on that date.

But I guess I got turned down because I asked a lot of questions and I haven’t put down the deposit. It was like 2 and half weeks of going back and forth with questions I have. Because their contract was weird. I am not going to word for word what’s on the contract. But there wasn’t an estimated cost or the total cost would be for bride, bridesmaid, and etc. In case what if they changed their mind and over charge me. Another section of the contract, I would lose the deposit even if they couldn’t find a replacement artists. That sounds wrong to me. I get it if I turn down the replacement person and it's not who I want, but if they can't provide the service because they don't have the people. Like how is that right that I would lost the deposit. But at the end, I’m glad I got turned down. So it back to research again.

I work for IT company and I have customers all the time with questions like what’s the difference between i5 and i7 processor. Or what is RAM or storage of HDD and SDD. But you don’t see me turning away a customer with a lot of questions. I see it as it’s their money and they want to make sure they are finding the right device to use for work or personal.

So its my money, why can't I ask a lot of questions. Like I'm spending the same amount of what I pay for a mortgage a month, on a hair and makeup service that will last for a day. I wanted to make sure it goes right.

    Yeah it sounds like they don’t even deserve your money. Find someone that’s willing to answer your questions since you’ll be paying for their services and need to know these things

    Sure! You can ask questions. But, keep in mind, that it’s not only the couple who chooses to hire their vendors... but the vendors also choose who they want to work with as well. Sometimes people forget that it goes both ways. But, ultimately, it sounds like you and that vendor weren’t a good fit for one another. So, it’s good that both of you found out early.

    That is very sketchy. You should be able to ask questions and it is very rude and unprofessional of them to treat you that way. Run far away from them and seek out another beauty team via Instagram, Yelp, Thumbtack.com and don't sign sign a contract before you get all the information. I would also leave a review detailing your experience to warn future brides.

    A contract without prices?? That's absurd. Of course you should be able to ask questions (within reason). I would be wary of any vendor that was put off by questions, that just makes them look sketchy and unprofessional...and probably ill-prepared.

    That’s absolutely ridiculous! Contact without prices? Lose your deposit if they bail? When I signed my contract with my makeup artist, she has everything listed for me & 2 bridesmaids. That includes types of hairstyles. There was no questions as to how much each service was going to cost. Seems that this was gift!
