You're actually getting air coming through between the windshield and pillar? Or just noise? 'A' pillar trim is notorious for being removed incorrectly and damaging the clips - it might be rattling.

I wouldn't bother going back to the shop - fix it yourself. Gently pry the top of the trim piece so it clears the front piece along the roof, then slide the A pillar trim up to release it from the clips. Check the condition of the clips on the body and trim - replace clips as necessary, then reinstall the trim piece. It can be installed by pressing it straight down on the A pillar; no need to slide it into place. Give it a hard rap with your fist to seat the clips.

Edit: This applies if the noise is the trim rattling. If there is air actually leaking between the windshield and 'A' pillar take it back to the shop.
