A question about etti-cut...

So, I went to the salon the other day and shelled out $55 for a haircut and a brow wax. The wax went fine, despite the fact that I'm getting a lot of redness and white bumps around my eyebrows, but I think that's normal, so I won't complain.

What I do want to complain about is the haircut. I tried telling the girl what I wanted. I was planning on going through the catalogs while I waited so I could show her what I wanted too, but the stupid salon didn't have any books on hair... just books on natural health and all that Ayurvedic stuff. Nice, but I wanted to look at pictures of hair.

So I was getting my hair cut, and I told her as best I could what I wanted. Even before she dried it, I made a comment about wanting less length. She said, "Well, next time we can do that."

Next time? I'm in your salon right now asking you to give me the hair I wanted!!!!!

I get her to trim it a bit, give it a little more edge, but she didn't thin my hair like I needed her to, she didn't take up the length enough, and while it looked nice enough when I left the salon, I still wasn't completely satisfied. I was willing to just deal with it though.

However, last night I washed my hair for the first time since I got the cut... and when I woke up, my hair was a giant,round puff-ball, my natural wave coming through in kinks, and as far as I'm concerned it's a disaster.

Sorry, long work-up to a short question:

Am I justified in complaining about this? Should I ask them to redo my hair for free?

I've never had a problem like this before, I don't know what is and isn't appropriate.

Zenders? Yeah, I wasn't exactly thrilled with them. >.> dont know what I would do in your condition however. Maybe go and complain? Ask for someone higher up and tell them what happened.

You're the customer, you're paying for their service. If their service isn't up to par, you have a right to not only complain but ask for a refund. Asking to redo hair for free is being more than reasonable on your part.

Even before she dried it, I made a comment about wanting less length. She said, "Well, next time we can do that."

This was unprofessional. >.
