I have never written a bad review online, but I've got to help other "Bride-to-be's"

My fianc and I are getting married in April and I had been searching for a salon with decent prices and great reviews that would be available for a hair and makeup trial while I was in town for my bridal shower (I live in Virginia and was only in town for 2 days). I called about 2 weeks prior to my shower date to make the trial appt. I drove through a massive snow storm and reached NY the day before the shower, I spoke with a gentleman the day before who called to confirm my hair and makeup appointment. When I had made the appt, they recommended I come in at 8:30am, so I could have 2 hours for both hair and makeup. I arrived with a picture of the hairstyle I wanted as well as makeup. The stylist I showed the hair picture to said "I've got to get [another stylist] to help because I'm not so good at braids" - sign one that "In Style Salon" was not a good choice.

Almost immediately preceding the hair ineptitude, the gentleman whom CONFIRMED my hair and makeup appt the day before, then came and told me that he had NO ONE to do my makeup. Mind you, I just arrived from Virginia (the day before) and did not bring any of my makeup brushes because I had a CONFIRMED my hair/makeup appointment with In-Style. Also, this gentleman insinuated that it was MY fault he did not have anyone for makeup, when I challenged him on his insinuation, he then admitted "Well, she just couldn't make it in". I suppose it's too difficult to let your customer know BEFORE she is sitting in front of the mirror at the salon?!?

I'm sorry In Style, that is NOT good enough. I got back to brothers house with 20 minutes to do MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP, along with 3 kids, my brother and his wife and my fianc. I will never use InStyle Salon in West Islip again and recommend that no one else rely on them, either.

God willing, you only get one bridal shower and one wedding- Don't let them ruin it for you too!! So much for feeling like a glamorous bride-to-be :(

I have been going here for years. The staff is fantastic. I am very surprised by the other post complaining about the color problem. There was one time that my color was not as I expected, they fixed it and I was completely satisfied. No extra charge. Having it done every five weeks for 4 years, only one problem, that works for me. It was not my regular girl so I think I just didn't make myself completely clear. I find it very hard to believe that the other poster was clear - blonde to brown?? Wouldn't happen-

I went to this salon for a foil highlighting and a cut. I asked for blond highlights and when I left my hair was dark brown. I asked them to take 1 inch off of my hair and when I left they had taken 4 inches off. When I went back to have them try to fix the color they said I would have to pay another $100.00 to put the blonde highlights I originally wanted in. Needless to say I will never go back again. They do not listen to their customers and when they do make a mistake they do not want to fix it.
