Hairstylist claims 'entitled' Tiffany Trump and Marla Maples wanted free blow-dry for inauguration
A popular hairstylist has claimed President-elect Donald Trump's ex-wife and daughter tried to haggle free blow-drys for Inauguration Day on Friday.
Tricia Kelly said she was "stunned" that Marla Maples and Tiffany Trump reportedly tried to nab free haircare in exchange for the "exposure" on social media.
Kelly told the Washington Post she was contacted by a client who has ties to Trump to liaise with the pair (a client who is very unhappy with the subsequent media exposure the story has received) and arrange hair and makeup for them.
But she was told they had a $300 budget in total - for hair and makeup services for the two of them, which barely covers Kelly's normal fees.
"I was told they had a $300 budget for both of them for hair and makeup," she said.
It was then that the duo tried to get the price down and work for free in exchange for plugs on their respective social media feeds?
"I was stunned. I told them... I work for a fee, not for free."
"There are people who make far less than they do who pay full price," she added.
"People on staff — the incoming White House and the outgoing one — pay full price. It seemed like they were trying to see how much they could get for free based on their names."
It's standard practice in showbiz for designers to loan free dresses and accessories to celebrities at certain events, but in politics, it's frowned upon to use your name for any quid pro quo freebies.
Which all begs the question - why is Marla Maples even going?
