I have the opposite issue, my stylist is super weird about letting you leave wet and not styled. Too the point where it is really awkward and I don't even ask anymore. The one time I asked her, and she said it wasn't her policy to let someone leave "unfinished". I was still willing to pay the full price, but relented. Another time I got a call from my kid's school saying my daughter had gotten sick and to come get her. Of course, she was understanding about that one.
She gives the most awesome cut and she is a genius w/ color, but I HATE the way she styles me curly. She gives the best blowouts, so I just go w/ that now, and enjoy straight hair for a couple days each time I see her.
