No Shows and Cancellations
If you can’t make it, please let us know as soon as possible. When an appointment is booked, this time slot has been specifically reserved for the client. Therefore, other appointment requests for the same time slots are turned away. We are pleased to accommodate our clients the best way possible and will make every effort to make alternate arrangements.
There is a lot of preparation that goes into specialty appointments. These are defined as more advanced color and treatment appointments that need to be booked for three hours or more. In order to reserve this type of appointment, a 50% deposit non-refundable is due at the time of booking. If for any reason you need to change your appointment time, we ask for a call at least 48 hours in advance. For any reschedules, the deposit will still apply to the newly booked appointment.
A 50% cancellation charge will be charged for no-show appointments or entire amount will be added to your future appointment.
Special requirements may apply for group bookings. Deposits and payments from group bookings must be made on one credit card only. We kindly request to arrive together for your group appointments especially if you have multiple services booked:ie hair and makeup.

The person that is organizing the group booking is responsible for paying the deposit in full. Date and time of the group booking will not be reserved until the deposit is made in full. The deposit will be applied as a credit towards the final service total.
You may submit deposit over the phone with a credit card, or in person in the salon.
Full names and accurate phone numbers for each member of the group as well as a list of the services to be performed is necessary to complete the booking correctly.

You will be charged accordingly for each visit during the corrective process. Your stylist will explain all of this to you during your consultation.
