Like all stylists I have slow days. Most of the time I accommodate my clients either same day or within 2 days. Some have grown accustomed to that, just so they don't feel like they can get them in allll the time sometimes I make myself seem busier than I am. In these cases I may say I don't have the exact time they want or the day they are looking for. In some cases I altogether say not today ( or in near future) I love my clients that why I bend over backwards for them BUT they have to know that I have other clients too. In a society where art is often rushed because of consumerism I try to not to a half fast job for ANY of my clientele. They are my walking billboards. Please if anyone else experiences this I need some advice on how to gently lay down boundaries for any pre-existing clients and for any new clients as well.
