Confirmations and Cancellations
We make every effort to remind you of your reservation prior to your scheduled date. However, you must inform us if you're unable to keep your reservation at least 24 hours prior to its scheduled date and time. If you cancel or change your scheduled reservation without providing us this 24 hour notice, you may be charged a no-notice or late-notice cancellation fee of $25 for every hour of scheduled service. If you fail to keep your scheduled reservation without providing us with any notice, we reserve the right to charge you for the entire cost of the reservation. If you're scheduling a service over one-hour in length or multiple services, we require a valid credit or gift card account number on file for purposes of guaranteeing your reservation. Please be sure to provide us with updated emails and phone numbers.
Holiday or Premium Week Reservations and Cancellations
During certain times of the year which we consider premium dates, our change or cancellation policy extends to a minimum of seventy-two (72) hours notice requirement for any changes or cancellations to your reservation to avoid incurring a late-cancellation charge. These are dates during the year when our guests' demand for services exceed our ability to serve that demand. Examples of these would be, Valentine's Day (week), Mother's Day (week), Christmas week, New Year's week. Premium Period deposit and payment requirements for group (two or more persons), multiple services (three or more hours of service) & salon package, third-party payment or "surprise" reservations require a purchase of an electronic gift certificate(s) which cover the cost of the entire reservation at the time of confirmation. Changes or cancellations will be accepted without any penalty up to seven (7) days prior to your reservation. Cancellation requests made within seven (7) days of your scheduled reservation will incur a cancellation fee equal to the amount of the reservation being cancelled. Changes to your Group or Multiple Service Reservation are permitted without penalty, subject to availability, up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled date and time.
Credit Card Required for Reservations
We ask our clients to provide us with a valid credit card or gift card number to secure any reservation that is an hour or longer in length and to provide us with at least 24 hour notice of any changes or cancellations in order to avoid being charged a missed or late cancellation fee of $25 per scheduled hour of service. This policy ensures that our guest reservations and our associate schedules are fully utilized by minimizing our late-cancel or missed appointment costs and allows us to provide value pricing to all of our customers. Your private credit card information is processed in compliance with Merchant Data Standards in compliance with the latest PCI Data Security Standards at all times. If you choose to save or store your credit card information as a result of creating your account in our scheduling system, rest assured that it is stored securely by our secured scheduling system through the integration with a nationally accredited merchant credit card processing company.

Third-party, or "Surprise" Reservations
If you wish to make a reservation for a guest using your credit card to secure the reservation AND your guest(s) will be paying for their services independently at checkout using a form of payment which belongs to them, you do not need to do anything further than make the reservation. If, however, you wish to use your credit card to pay for your guest(s) services without you physically being present at checkout, you should note that credit card payment processors require us to have written authorization in the form of a credit card receipt signed, or electronically authorized, by the paying party for services rendered to or products purchased by a person other than the cardholder. As such, if you would like to pay for the charges incurred by your guest(s) on your credit card, we request that do so through the use of our Instant Gift Certificate purchase for the amount of the services and any additional products that you may wish your payment to cover. Once purchased, this electronically secured Gift Certificate is recorded and available to be used for payment for services for you or your guest(s) as needed Please note that we will not be able to use a third-person credit card as a form of payment for any appointment upon checkout by your guest(s) if this procedure is not followed. Third-Party or "Surprise" Reservations have the same cancellation policy as our Group, Multiple-Service or salon Reservations so please ensure that your guest is aware of these policies prior to scheduling a reservation for them.
It is our goal to ensure that you are charged a reasonable & fair price for services in order to foster a long-term relationship with you. Our menu prices are posted as a guideline for standard services but will vary based on the experience level of the associate providing the service. It is important to note that our associates should never add on service items or substitute a service without discussion and prior consent by you. If you ever have a question, we encourage you to discuss the service and pricing associated with your service with any of our associates prior to receiving the service. In fact, this is a mandatory requirement for our associates with respect to a first-time client or a first-time service for an existing client by the use of a consultation form which you are asked to review and sign
