Poll: What's Your Etiquette Style?


Are you the type who orders a steak medium rare, it comes to
the table medium well and you eat it anyway?  You take your number
at the meat counter, and they skip your number and go to the next, do
you pick another number and wait?


How about when it comes to your hair?  You go to the salon
and tell the stylist exactly how you want your hair cut, and it ends
up nothing like you wanted.  She turns around your chair, and you
have the "latest look" rather than the cut you requested.
 
What would YOU do?

wow, this is exactly what happened to me - does this happen to a lot of people?? i did tell the stylist that it wasn't at all what i had asked for. i'd even stopped her at the beginning of the cut to clarify what i wanted (when I saw she was chopping off all of what SHE later called my "mullet") but she still gave me the latest, greatest, cutest bob which i hate. i still paid her, though. i was probably too nice. after i told her it wasn't right, she tried to convince me how much better this cut was, and then even had the nerve to suggest i go back to having a pixie haircut (so she could trim it every six weeks!) now i feel dumb for having paid her.

Xgreen, this poll applies to ANYONE who has had this type of experience at a salon. It is just asking what your etiquette style is? :)

I just think it means someone who cuts your hair.

You all have....stylists? Man, I guess this doesn't really apply to people under the poverty line...

I wouldn't ask for my money back right away, but I'd ask them to fix it. I had to do that with my old stylist several times. That's why she's my OLD stylist.

I wish I had the balls to cause a scene and demand my money back, but I probably wouldn't do anything. Luckily my stylist is amazing so I don't have to worry about it.

I've never had that happen but I think I would just ask the stylist to fix it. I had this one stylist who asked me about 5 times if I wanted side bangs and I was very polite but I firmly said "no"

I'm lucky that I have a stylist who knows me so well that I can go in without a clue of what I want and she always gives me something that works great with my hair type/petite face. I'm also pretty daring in my hair so that it's hard to give me a style that I just cannot accept/work with. That said, the few years I lived in Charlotte, I tried stylists there and they always messed up or didn't listen and I'd make them fix it and wouldn't return. I ended up flying home to my stylist when I needed my hair done because I got sick of bad stylists.

I tell my stylist (or bring a picture) what I want, and she always does a really good job with it. If she didn't however, I would just tell her to fix it or to give my money back.

I tell them from the get-go what I want and that if it isn't right they are not getting paid. I likely come off supremely pushy and bossy but I want it done right.

I have been going to my stylist for over 10 years and the few times when I didn't like it, she restyled it, either the same day or within a few days.

I agree! I use to go to a gay hairdresser and my hair received a lot of love. Unfortunately, I moved and my new hairdresser hates cutting my hair short. (She once refused to cut it above my shoulders because she said it's better long... I just smiled.)

I would definately ask for the manager,to let her/him know that they have a stylist that doesn't listen to simple instructions,so maybe it won't happen to the next person,then tell them I want my money back to go somewhere else to get it fixed,or to buy a wig depending on how bad it looks,because it's my hair I want it done the exact way I ask for it,my hair grows very slow anyway,and would not go back to that salon.

i understand you so totally - i once had a gay hairdresser too - unfortunately he died - Aids :CRY: he was FAB - you are so right :HUG:

;) Iveenia! Great! :heart: the 1st time i met my stylist he greeted me wearing long johns, army boots, a purple mowhawk, gay man, so his pinky was always up. Sooooo cute. :) :true: but he is fabuloussssss! i think gay men are VERY good at styling women's hair knowing what looks good on them. :shrug: i get nervous if someone else does my hair. ;)

it is some kind of confidence - and yes - my hairdresser is very progressive and is a punk lady - looks like a man - but when it comes to my hair - she is VERY conservative - more conservative than i am - :ROTFL: so she cannot do anything wrong ;) oh and btw: if someone blew the job - i went and fixed it myself - just like you Dee ;)

I think most women do the same thing, which is good. As if UR not getting the service UR paying for, the best etiquette is to simply let them know and they will typically reimburse you. If not, asking for reimbursement in a respectable business will typically be reciprocated. :)

I'm going to the same hairdresser for years , so he knows what i like and don't like . but if someone that i'm paying him to do a job , don't do the job that i'm asking for , i'll definitly say something .

I have a great stylist thank God! Hypothetically, however, when it comes to incorrect service i.e., if my hair is done incorrectly, etc., my etiquette style is more of a pushover unfortunately. if my hair were to be done wrong - say i was on holiday and had someone else do my hair i would probably just go to another salon and have someone fix it or try to fix it myself. ;) I am a DIYer. my etiquette style is mostly passive. i should take an assertiveness class! :ROTOFL:

that pictture is funny :D my hair stylist knows me well so she usually doesnt do anything wrong, but if she did i would ask her to fix it or im not paying.
