This game is annoying.
Even from the very start, I couldn't get 3 stars on any of the levels. The woman walks around slow, and the mini-games just slow the entire game down, as the game isn't paused whilst you do them. Some of the clothes look similar, so it's easy to make a mistake, and sometimes they want a dark bow in dark hair, so you can't easily see it! The just slows the mini-game down again. The clients get annoyed quickly, and it's not the easiest thing to get upgrades, either, to make to game more interesting.
This game could be much better. It's slow, boring, and annoying.

It really could be a fun game. But the character walks much too slow. The upgrades aren't nearly effective enough. The clock doesn't stop on the mini game, and the directions can be really confusing at times.
I think if a few tweaks were made, this game could be a LOT of fun.

To hard to star up to better shop !
I don't get under 3 people stars and no people leave mad ... Plus get all the dress and shoes right and still doesn't give enough points to go to next wave.. and to hard to get more stars to better shop... waste of $ or credits.. and very disappointed....

I love time management games like Sally's Studio and Spa Mania so I had high hopes but they were quickly dashed! The game moves painfully slow and sadly Stella is even slower. The upgrades you can purchase come slowly and you don't get much choice. All in all a non purchase for me.

Stella and her lead feet
This could have been a passable game, except for two very important factors. First, Stella the Stylist is the slowest game sprite I've ever encountered, and I've played a lot of this game type. Every level went by painfully slowly. I could take a nap between tasks. Second, the upgrades are impossibly overpriced after the 5th level. I know the goal is to make the player pick and choose, strategize, whatever, but I wound up replaying levels a lot to pick up the stars I missed. However, I did the math, and even if a player 3-starred every level, she couldn't afford the useful upgrades, let alone all of them. That stinks.
I wish I could recommend this game but I think I'll stick with Sally's Salon or Rachel's Spa.

I also wanted to like this game because I thought maybe this was another Sally's Salon that I could enjoy...did not happen. I played for a total of 18 minutes, and dreaded it even at the first level. Stella was so slow, I couldn't even get 3 stars on the tutorial level! I found myself frustrated when instructions were missing and I was left to figure out the game on my own. I'll save my money this time, and keep hoping for something us true TM's can play without having to send a person out to pick up gold or some other resource.

Quit after the first level - looks like it was made for windows 95.
