We arrived on island three weeks ago. Purchased home in East End three years ago and just moved in. Lots of complications but people here could not have been nicer. OMG, drivers stop to let you turn, the good mornings, the good afternoons, the oceanviews and the great restaurants. Love it all. So, today I stop by a hair studio in Gallows Bay, ask the attendant ( who seems Spanish) if they do Spanish hair. She tells me to wait for the owner. I ask again, thinking that my question is pretty simple. She repeats that I must wait for the owner. Owner comes out and I ask the same question. Owner looks at me with obvious disdain, and says NO. I ask for recommendarions and she asks her attendant, again in a dismissive tone, where do YOU go? After she sees my large wedding ring rock, she then says "thank for stopping by." I will add that after I saw her make up and hair I would have never gone to her Salon, but that is not the isssue. Have lived all over the USA, never been treated this way.

I'm stumped!
Possibly attitude adjustment required?

Thank you so much. Will call in the am. I joke that the hardest thing about moving from DC area is saying good bye to my hair dresser of 10 years.
