Subject: snippy degrading stylist

When I moved to this area I had to find a stylist Isnt easy I hear the same thing at the majority of the ones Ive tried. Your hair is too THIN for that style how about lets not do that style.....I took off lots more than you wanted because I wanted to.......Your hair is very thin and dry.....Oh I didnt do the style you mentioned because this one gives you more options....What? I didnt want them to give me more options. I want the legnth I chose, the style I chose and Im aware its thin. Im not the only person with thin hair. Not my fault. I've finally found a stylist that is wonderful. She does what I want and asks me about things along the way as she is cutting. finally..

hair stylist are stuck in their ways and do what they want to do with your hair. I' m with the previous reply, I don't wanna come out of the salon looking like a little old lady. when I ask to have something done to my hair I expect it to happen.

Subject: skills

I will admit to being beyond middle age a bit but I recall when a hair dresser could do more than cut, color and blow dry hair. They could actually "style" your hair. I hate the "wash and wear" hair styles that all senior women get. Man cuts that make us all look the same. Are we supposed to stop caring what we look like at a certain age? We certainly have the time to spend on ourselves and a professional should have more than one idea for all senior women. I would love to find a hair dresser that actually know how to style hair!


Subject: Snotty stylists

There's nothing worse than going into a "professional" salon and having a catty stylist tell you multiple times that your hair is in terrible condition. Loudly, so as to simply humiliate you. I am a great tipper but there is no reason to ever belittle your clients.

Only a best curling iron can give you the perfect curl hair style as you want. There are lots of good curling irons are available in the market, but for getting an attractive style in your hair, you need to pick a best or top curling iron that really work worthy. Everything will go smoothly if the curling iron you are going to curl the hair with is the best one. You also have to know how to use a curling iron. For further information you can read curling iron reviews.


Subject: Bad children

I love children. I have children as clients but if you know you child is bad, pick a day their at school, the sitter, or with a family member to come in. When I have to discipline your child to sit down, stay out of products, stop jumping on furniture and spinning around in chairs that's a huge problem for me. Most of the time when I have to keep stopping, it puts me behind on the person in my chair. Be respectful to me and the other clients.

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.
