    Horrific client has ruined our floor!

    As we not mental health professionals, and don't know this woman well (and have only one side to this story) I think its unfair to make comments on this woman's mental health status. I do find the term 'unhinged' rather an offensive, and rather derogatory term for people suffering from mental...

    Horrific client has ruined our floor!

    If it's true and she has gone to the police, the police are duty bound to investigate her claims, whether or not they have 'dealt her sort' before. I should know, I'm an ex cop.

    Family volunteering your services!

    I would set a precedent and politely refuse to do the service, stating that due to you being pregnant you are not able to do it. I think what has happened here reading between the lines is that your mum may have innocently as an off the cuff remark, said to one of your relatives about having a...

    Nightmare client who wants refund

    I would refund her, but charge her the original price for each of the 3 facials she has had, plus the one she turned up and cancelled on the day and refund her the difference. The others 3 you will have to put down to experience, unless you have a legally binding sign contract with her. This...

    Shellac and hairdressing?

    I get 3 to 4 weeks out my shellac and I do hairdressing as wells with graphic design (lots of keyboard work and scrolling with a mouse) and mine lasts 3/4 weeks. It must be because she mixes brands.

    Miscarriage + business + non understanding clients!

    I completely understand why you don't want to book her back in , as it would be awkward and very uncomfortable for you. What you could do, is to send her an email or text with the following. Dear xx Thank you for getting in touch recently and for apologising. This has been a very distressing...

    Massage complaint

    This It is what this forum is for, but havling re read your post. Surly it is unprofessional of the insurance company to recommend you to do nothing (not you). I would be looking for a new insurer as they clearly don't have your best interests at heart and are unwilling to help you in this...

    Shoes on or off mobile

    As an ex police officer I can honestly tell you that if you need to flee quickly for your own safety its best doing it in shoes, than run down the street where there's gravel and glass on pavement r in socks or bare feet Working mobile in people's homes is risky especially if you are a lone...

    Shoes on or off mobile

    I have had clients ask me to take my shoes off and I have refused on the grounds of: 1) health and safety: if anything sharp drops on my feet they need protecting and to stop slips and falls. 2) personal safety: if I need to leg it for any reason I can do it quickly and safely in shoes or if I...

    I would ask for a small non refundable deposit. For me the amount of non refundable deposit taken depends on the value of the booking/treatments booked/location of where I wold have to travel too, so if the booking value is £110 and 15 miles away , I would ask for a 50% non refundable deposit...

    Emergency advice on lash removal

    Unless you are a registered health care professional and working in that capacity, you should not recommend anyone to take any medication over the counter or otherwise. Always refer them back to the salon or therapist where got them applied or to a health care professional or pharmacist. You...

    Which foundations do you recommend for a freelance kit

    The problem with product recommendations are that what works for one person, may not work for an other. The most cost effective way is to get samples if you can and test them out yourself to see if it's what you and your clients require. MAC do samples when you go their stores and so do some...
