    No I was on that website that you get free stuff from and they said sign up to this competition and get a free lipstick and I ended up winning it, when all I wanted was the lipstick. They phoned me at home as well...*squeals*

    Does that mean mathematically that something is more/less likely to happen to me? Or the same?

    Well if it's any consolation I've gotta decide when to have it done and it runs out after three months sucks that I'm at college and I have exams, so I'm going to have to do it on a Friday, can't this Friday as parents going away, next week is literally mostly spent in London anyway, arghh.....I have to phone them back though so I can talk it over with my mum.

    HMmmm because someone came up to me in the street and asked me some things and said that there was a prize just like the one you described... I said it sounded fishy and walked away. A lot of people in our uni have been targetted and I think they've been doing it at lots of different unis and basically it's a scam and they rip you off completely. Everyone was warned about it.

    Hope it's a proper thing! I always end up with bad luck so if that was me it would mean I got kidnapped or something... not that I'm not trying to scare you. Just be careful!

    Careful

    A lot of places offer these makeover prizes.

    The pictures will not be free - enjoy the day but don't let your guard down when it comes to the pictures, if you can't afford £100 for a photo then you don't get it.

    They did say that the photos weren't included and I was under no obligation to buy them, and they told me that the collection of at least 30 photos would be 150 however I can pick any single prints I want for ten pounds each...I think...I was too excited, I just want the hair cut and makeover

    Has the studio got a website? If it has find out how much they charge normal customers and see if they're loading the makeover charge onto the price they will charge you for the photos...they know that most people will want at least one photo (and that they can pursuade some people to buy lots) which is how these studios make money out of the deal.

    Go in with your eyes open (and without a debit/credit card and only as much cash as you can afford to give them) and you'll have a good day
