I know what you mean about when you need a cut you want it right away, and I too am bad about preplanning ! My stylist is also a bit hard to get into but I have chosen to wait bacause I love how she makes my hair always look great. What if at your next appt you make the next appt in advance if you know about how long it takes in between? I Think if you really love you stylist you will wait for her even if it is a bit annoying. My girl doesn't work Mondays or Tuesdays so I have to work around things too! HTH!

I liked Shannon's idea of making your appointment in advance. Don't forget to put it on your calendar though! I would certainly forget otherwise (maybe you're better at that than I am! )

When I was working and had a large clientele, I tried to book everyone for their next appointment when they were in. We had an idea of how long they needed and at what point they would go crazy! Some came in every 4 weeks, but some could make it 6 to 8 weeks. As for color appointments, we had an idea when their roots would be bad and try to schedule accordingly. This saved frustration for everyone. I didn't feel like I had to "cram someone in" when they called panicked and they never felt like "I could never get them in" if they called last minute. With that said...it is challenging! I would never call and expect to get in the same day...(or even the same week) however, I'm bad about making my appointments. My schedule is never the same (owning our own businesses)so sometimes it's challenging. But usually, if I know I have an appointment, I can work around it and keep it on the books.
My girl doesn't come in first thing either. This used to bother me, but now...I get all my errands done, and this is my treat at the end of my "chores". I'm usually her first appointment (at say 11 or 1...) so she is on time. It's a win win!
Good luck with your decision!!

If you have someone whose work you are really pleased with, at a price you can handle, then it may be worth a discussion to figure out best plan for scheduling with her. (I hate changing stylists.)

Anyway, you can always try someone else out and then compare. I did that... then came back to my hair gal.
