I'm having this problem too and am very dissatisfied because I have similar issues with Detectives and arresting suspects (the only person in the area that matches the suspect description registers as a wrongful arrest so my character can NEVER get promoted out of training!) It shouldn't be this hard to play Careers! Not at all acceptable when this is one of the primary reasons of two packs.

I remember the "Hair and Makeup" interaction working a few days ago, but recently, it stopped working and I can't get it to work. Also, this occurs on my other saves as well. I don't really know a lot about bugs like this, but maybe repairing my game via Origin will do something. If that doesn't work, I'm just gonna do that "super repair" thing I keep hearing about.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
Same issue for me. I only got the EP this week and it downloaded at the same time as the update so no idea if it was working before that.
No custom content.
Have all the EPs and game packs and some of the stuff packs.
The first time the sim went to a gig it took three times to get the hair and makeup to show as completed.
The second gig she spent almost the entire time getting it redone. She went there first, then I cleared the other jobs, then I tried queuing things as someone suggested. It finally worked ten sim minutes before the gig ended and she didn't have time to complete anything else.
