Awareness and Fairness No Show Policy
SALON NO SHOW LOSS – £12,099 in annual revenue
(This could hire a full time graduate)
STYLISTS NO SHOW LOSS – up to £1153 in annual wages
(No employee can afford to lose this on wages)
HOURS LOST – 530 hours annually
(over 10 wasted hours every week)
In one day alone we can have as many as 7 no shows leaving our stylist with reduced wages as they work on % commission like the majority of stylists across the world.
We require a full 48 hours cancellation notice of all appointments so we can try to resell the time
48 HOURS NOTICE means we must have received notification of cancellation exactly 48 hours or more before your appointment time. We understand life gets in the way sometimes. We are all so busy appointments can slip our mind sometimes so we give you our 3 Step Fairness Policy.
- 1st NO SHOW you are charged just HALF of your booked appointment value and we let you spend that charge on salon products so you have something to show for your charge. That’s fair right?
- 2nd NO SHOW you are charged the FULL rate of the appointment value and you can spend half toward products again.
- 3rd NO SHOW and any following no shows you are charged the full appointment value.
New Booking Policy
All new client appointments or appointment longer than 1 hour now require a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the booking value. This will only be refunded if 48-hour cancellation notice is given. The great thing about paying a deposit is you have less to pay on appointment day.
All packages are fully paid in advance and purchased online, over the phone or in the salon. Failure to give 48 hours’ notice to cancel your package or pre-paid package service booking will result in the package being classed as fully redeemed and will no longer be valid.
Elite Membership Appointments. As an Elite member you can redeem as many appointments as in your membership; however, failure to show up for an appointment you booked results in the salon and stylist losing revenue. Our stylists are in high demand and could be servicing other clients in this wasted appointment time.
Please note you WILL be charged as in our cancellation policy if you fail to give 48 hours’ notice to cancel
In return we agree that if we need to change your appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice and your booking has stood for more than 48 hours we will endeavour to offer you another appointment on the same day.
If we are unable to offer you an alternative appointment* on the same day we will gift you with half of your appointment value with free products when you return for your booking.
*Please note due to sickness we cannot guarantee we can offer you the same stylist at the same time but we will endeavour to offer you an alternative appointment on the same day
If you are late for your appointment the time comes off your appointment and we cannot guarantee you the full service you booked for but we can guarantee your stylist will do everything they can to make you look and feel amazing in the time they have.
If we are late starting your appointment your service is not affected.
In our service industry appointment times can be unpredictable so we base them on averages. We cannot guarantee you will be in and out in your exact booking time so please make appointments when you are not in a rush to get out at a specific time. We want you to have the best salon experience and rushing will not only compromises your experience but adds stress and pressure on your stylist.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and supporting your stylist and salon team.
