Lastly, don't be afraid to speak your mind. Please remember though, it's not what you say but how you say it. If you are not happy about something, approach the person with kindness.
Yes because swiss suck up criticism like a dry spong in pool...
It is the only country in the world where you need a masters in diplomacy to be able to give customer feedback!

Re: Bad wedding day experience at a beauty salon

To expect a great wedding hairdo, without a test run and without much experience with that particular hairdresser is just waiting for a disaster here. I have seen some really strange creations here, and costing more than 200fr, not flattering those faces at all, epsecially ladies, guys are usually ok (unless that thick Tom Cruise hair on the neck is left there, ick). You have to be customer savvy here, you can find a great hairdresser and pay less than 100fr, or you can find an attrocious one and pay 300fr. He knew he made a mess, so he charged you only 60fr. Did you tell him it was for a wedding? I would have gone there afterwards, with photos to tell him how you wanted to have it done and telling him how disappointed you were. He won't get better unless he hears some feedback, you will feel better than if you just vent over here. If you don't feel like going through all of this again, just shrug it off as a learning curve. Next time, go somewhere with references, or go with a friend that can not only translate but also watch what that hairdresser is doing and comment on his/her work.

Re: Bad wedding day experience at a beauty salon

that's good advice, you need to talk through what you need with your hairdresser / beautician beforehand.

The girls at Gidor (only the ZH once) physically hurt me when they cut my hair...
GIDOR can't be mentioned in the same sentence with specialists, GIDOR is only a cheap walk-in hairdresser.

Re: Bad wedding day experience at a beauty salon

Sorry about your experience but the hair do and make up for your wedding is not something you leave to rookies! I had a test of the hair I wanted by the hairstylist I chose and then the day of my wedding she came to my place and made it...it did cost me a small fortune but I was very happy with the results, the same with the make up. These things you need to plan with time!
