Cancellations, Non-Refundable Booking Fees and No-Shows
In order to book your appointment, we may require your card details or for a non-refundable booking fee to be taken at the time of booking. Card details are securely held by our booking system (Ovatu) and are not viewable by the salon.
For bookings where your card details are captured, your card will not be charged at the time of booking, however it will be charged in the event of a no-show or late cancellation. Cancellations between 48 and 24 hours of your appointment start time will be charged at 50% of the total appointment cost. Cancellations within 24 hours (or no-shows) will be charged at 100% of the total appointment cost.
Appointment reminders will be sent 72 hours before your appointment so please contact me as early as possible to avoid charges.
Date changes also require a minimum of 48 hours notice.
We reserve the right to ask for payment in full before a booking will be made. If this is done, this amount will be treated the same as a non-refundable booking fee and will be retained in proportion to the above late cancellation charges (50% for cancellations less than 48 hours before your appointment time)
If no booking fee or card capture is taken and you cancel within 48 hours, we reserve the right to ask for a late cancellation charge of 50% of the total appointment cost, then payment in full in advance, to book any future appointments.
If you do not show for your appointment and haven’t contacted the salon, you may be removed from the booking system. Please contact us to book a new appointment, we will require payment in full, in advance of any new appointment.
Please let me know if you are going to be late for your appointment. I can usually allow for a few minutes, however I may have clients after your appointment, so if you are more than 15 minutes late, I may have to cancel your appointment and apply the above terms as a no-show.
AAT (allergy alert testing)
For all new hair colour clients, I will need to carry out an AAT (allergy alert test) between 2-5 days (minimum 48 hours) before your appointment. You will be asked to sign a form to confirm that this has been carried out. You will also need to fill in a consultation form before every colour appointment, to confirm whether you need a new AAT in order to continue with the booked service.
Complaints and Feedback
Our priority is for you to be completely satisfied with the service you receive from us. We run a professional business so we aim to deliver the highest standards in everything we do. Complaints are rare but we take them very seriously, so we have a complaints policy and process which we follow to make sure that things are put right where needed and we can learn from your feedback.
If you are not happy with the service you receive, please tell a member of staff either before you leave the salon, or as soon as possible once you have left. We will listen to your feedback and ask any necessary questions to understand your complaint, we aim to resolve any complaints within 8 weeks. If you have already left the salon, do not go to another salon as we have the right to see exactly what the service or treatment you have received from us, looks like. If you alter your service/treatment elsewhere, we will not be able to rectify any problems and will be unable to offer any sort of resolution.
Property Loss or Damage
It is your responsibility as the owner, to take care of any property you bring into the salon. We take no responsibility for any property which is lost or damaged, unless it is damaged by a member of staff due to carelessness. Anything left in the salon will be held for 8 weeks, we will do our best to contact you to retrieve your property.
Other Terms & Conditions
Some of our services/treatments will come with their own specific terms and aftercare. These will be highlighted individually either upon booking, consultation or at your appointment.
