I have an internal role with several other associates, and we are developing a presentation for our executive leadership team. I put time on one of the analysts calendars to talk through the deck.

I understand client or personal things come up, but I’m frustrated at the complete lack of explanation or follow-up. How would you respond in a way that is open to explanation but addresses this?

Got a haircut & color yday and I loved the girl, but she was rushed because there was another client waiting and I realized later on at home that we forgot the face framing layers and front pieces that we talked about. If this was cheap I wouldn’t care, but I paid over $200 for this appointment. I know the salon has a policy where I can go back if I’m not fully satisfied but is that a Karen move? The fix won’t take long & I really like the stylist, I was just really excited for the bangs :/ TIA!
