ACKWARD hair trial today!!
Sorry in advance, it might be long! So last summer, when I signed my contract with my photog, I told her I was looking for a hairdresser who would accept to come to my parent's house to do my hair the morning of the wedding (not a lot of people agreed to do this in Qc, mostly you have to go to the salon). So a couple week after, she called me back and told me she worked with a great hairdresser "Fred" for a wedding and he was going at people's home. So I called him and booked him for our wedding.
Fast foward in March, I called him back to make an appointment for my hair trial and I remember thinking he was kind of evasive on the phone but I just told myself he was probably busy. So we set June 14th, 9:30 am for my hair trial, which was this morning!
Fast foward to this morning, I went to the salon for my appointment and when I arrived and asked for Fred, he was there (never met him before) and looked very strangely at me. Than he says he has no appointment with my name for this morning and there was another woman there for him. Hummm...ok...strange but he could have forget to write it down when I called him. So he asked me if I could come back at 12h30 and didn't even excuse himself. Does I need to say I was pissed off when I quit?! I didn't really had a good first feeling about him and I spent the morning anticipating the fact that if he couldn't remember an appointment, there was a possibility that he wouldn't show up on my wedding day, right?!?!
I came back at 12h30 and he still looked not really welcoming, didn't gave me single smile or anything. He asked me to come with him at the back of the salon and then, he told me he was leaving his job soon so he wouldn't be working anymore on July 14th (probably why he had such a strange attitude...I really think he was nervous to told me this)! WHATTTTT?!?!?!?!?! But before I started a panic attack, he told me somebody else, Marcus, could do my hair and come to my parents. So he introduced me to him and God, this Marcus was so much nicer!!! He (marcus) make sure I wasn't angry that it wasn't Fred who will be doing my hair (are you kidding me...I'm so relieved!!!) and talked a lot with me to make sure he knew exactly what I wanted. Then he proposed to me that he could stay ALL DAY LONG with me on the wedding day (it was supposed to be just the "getting ready time") and that we could do 2 differents look during the day: A classic updo for the ceremony, cocktail and beggining of the pictures and curly hair down for the rest of the pictures and the evening. And all this...for FREE! Not extra money for spending the afternoon with us! He's seriously amazing!
So, today he cut a bit my hair for them to be perfect on the wedding day and curled them (kind of like the second look) but we didn't try the updo. He'll send me pictures this week to show me what he is thinking in regard to what I showed him today and he'll just do it on the wedding day and adjust at this moment. I totally trust him and I'm soooooo glad that all this crazy story happenend otherwise I would had crazy Fred as my hairdresser, which wouldn't had be the same, So here's a picture of my hair after my appointment. It will have more volume on my wedding day but it gives an idea :
So yay for Marcus! Coming back later with picture of my makeup trial!
