Braider cancels appointment for late client, loses money 💀

A braider shares her experience of losing money and clients because a client was late for a scheduled appointment. She explains that she has policies to ensure clients show up on time and adhere to other rules she has set. The client was two hours late, and the braider had already begun working on her next client when the late client showed up. The braider had to cancel the appointment and gave the client her wig so she could have someone else install it. The client then took to social media to badmouth her, even though the braider explained her policies. The braider is now losing money and clients because of the negative comments. She reaches out to the community for advice, and many commenters support her actions. She eventually commented on the client's post, which was then deleted. She expresses gratitude for the support she received and vows to continue growing her business.

NTA. Professional braider cancels late appointment, faces slander and harassment.
