Hairdresser refusing appointment for DC
storminateacupagain · 04/12/2021 12:16
I have been going to the same hairdresser every 6 weeks for years, My DC's 5 and 2 usually come with me every second visit for tidy up/trims. DS in particular has very curly hair and after a while his hair is totally wild, I always book appointments for them same time as me.
Last visit for when l tried to rebook for us all just before Christmas l was told that they were not doing any childrens hair for the month of December,.
Surely this is unfair for regular clients?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

No it isn't unfair, they are a business they can set any rules they like. December is the busiest month, many of them are on the brink of collapse after the last 18 months. They probably need to fill those appointments with the highest paying clients they can to stay open and survive, I'm sure there will be somewhere else if you have to, or wait till January. But cut your place some slack, I doubt they're doing that unless they have to.

DS's hair is awfully curly- his cut was due mid December but was refused an appointment and by January ( they reopen 12th January) his cut will be 5 weeks overdue. DD would be fine.
I guess l will take him elsewhere- they charge £15 per visit so it is not as if it is a cheap visit.

Sorry, but I don’t think that’s unreasonable. It’s the busiest time of year for hairdressers, they’ve had a really disrupted 18 months with lockdowns. It’s entirely reasonable that they want to maximise their income this month by filling their diaries with full price clients (I’m assuming you don’t pay adult prices for your children’s haircuts).

Unfair how? Just go in January.
