I would file it under ‘mildly annoying’.

PrincessHoneysuckle · 27/11/2019 09:31

Yes true it's not a massive deal but I'm punctual and if I'd have wanted a 9.30 appointment I'd have arranged it

Sometimes things go wrong. Yes she should have let you know she was running late.

FelixFelicis6 · 27/11/2019 09:34

Did she apologise? Would she accommodate you if you let her know last minute that you’ll be half an hour late?

littlepaddypaws · 27/11/2019 09:34

polite to let you know, what happens if you have other things to do ?

My mobile hairdresser friend turned up 45 mins late to do my colour when she knew I only had two hours to get hair coloured before I had to go to work.
I was so annoyed.
She still insisted on doing it and said there was plenty of time but it wasnt left on long enough and the result was less than impressive.
Stil hugely annoyed.

This would annoy me too but I absolutely hate to be late for anything

Countryescape · 27/11/2019 09:39

Did she say sorry? If not then very rude and I’d not use her again

GiveHerHellFromUs · 27/11/2019 09:47

It is annoying that she didn't let you know she was running late. Did she turn up at 9:30?

needmoresleep1 · 27/11/2019 09:57

Maybe she thought the appointment was 9.30 and not 9.00?

spacepyramid · 27/11/2019 10:00

I'd be annoyed and wouldn't use her services again.

MeTheCoolOne · 27/11/2019 10:01

I'd be a bit annoyed too. I'm nearly always punctual and if I'm not I would message and apologise.

I'd ask the hairdresser about it just to know for next time. She could easily have just muddled up the time. It's not a biggie.

No other appointments today apparently,no apology.

Did you mention it to her?

churchandstate · 27/11/2019 12:04

With no apology that would piss me off. And I wouldn’t book her again.

MatildaTheCat · 27/11/2019 12:06

My mobile hairdresser confirms her appointment by text the day before. I suggest you ask yours to do the same so there is no confusion over the time.

Very unprofessional to roll up late with no prior warning.

MatildaTheCat · 27/11/2019 12:07

Her business isn’t going that well then? Is she actually any good?

Thehop · 27/11/2019 13:10

Rude for her not to apologise or explain

nokidshere · 27/11/2019 13:20

I'd cancel and not use her again. I hate people not turning up on time without letting me know, it's extremely rude.

Tigresswoods · 27/11/2019 13:24

In my experience hairdressers whether in a salon or working for themselves are ALWAYS late. I now book the first appointment of the day with my salon based hairdresser. I arrive early. We start 5-10 minutes later without fail.

It depends on her track record. I often made appointments with a close friend, who is a beautician; for who's services I paid in full for. The first couple of times she was late, I let it slide, as she was a friend and not some random beautician. However, on the third occasion, I commented that my time was as important as hers, she apologised and we continued as normal. She was late for the following two appointments, at which point I stopped using her or referring her to others. The friendship has never been the same, but quite frankly, it spoke volumes to be about her level of respect towards me as a friend and a paying customer.
