Please read our salon policies before booking an appointment with us, this will ensure you understand how we work to avoid any confusion when visiting us.
Appointment Cancellation Policy
Please be aware that when you are booking any of our longer duration services with us, for example, a wedding package, colour correction, hair extensions, aesthetics or even some beauty treatments, we will require a non-refundable deposit per person at the point of making the booking. A booking cannot be made until the deposit has been received.
Once you have enquired about consultations, skin tests, prices and booking availability, we advise you to get back to us as soon as possible to secure your booking with a 50% deposit determined from the total cost of the booking.
Cancellation and No Show Fees
Unfortunately, we do have to charge a cancellation fee for any treatment cancelled within 24 hours of the booking or any no-show appointments.
This fee will be charged at 50% of the total service cost.
We thank you for your understanding.
If for any reason you are running late for your appointment please call 01304 892345 to give us notice.
We work very hard to schedule the right amount of time for each service. accommodating late guests is often impossible without disrupting every other guest scheduled that day.
Please be aware in the unfortunate event that you are late, we cannot guarantee that your services will be performed that day. lateness of 10 minutes or more may require rescheduling your appointment for another day and loss of your deposit.
Deposits for appointments
We like to take deposits for larger bookings, for example hair extensions, weddings, colour correction and Brazilian blowdries. This is pretty much standard procedure within salons now to help ensure our talented team of self employed stylist don't lose out from 'no shows' as this really impacts on their income.
Anything with a value over £100 we wish for deposits to be made, this ensures the appointment can be booked. Deposits will be deducted from the overall price once the service has been carried out. Deposits are fully refundable/transferable if 48 hours notice is given for any cancellations.
Please see our lateness policy as deposits will be forfeited if you are past the cut off time to carry out your appointment. For weddings and extension appointments we require 50% off the monies upfront to safeguard the appointment time needed.
If after your appointment you are not satisfied with your service, we ask you to please contact the salon within 7 days of that service. we would like every opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations, as we value you as a client. If you have simply changed your mind or if you return after the 7 days, normal charges apply. If you have altered or attempted to alter your hair colour or cut yourself or by a third party this guarantee becomes null and void.
In the event you do not show up to your appointment, you will lose the deposit paid to secure the appointment and you will be required to give a deposit for your next booking. If you miss three consecutive appointments without contacting the salon, you will be unable to schedule future appointments.
If a skin test is required for your colour services and you fail to have one done, then we have no choice but to cancel your appointment. skin tests must be carried out 48 hours before your appointment.
At THE HAIR GALLERY we insist on following the rules and regulations of the manufacturers that supply our colour and products for your own safety and well being. It is very rare for a reaction to occur but if it does it can be very severe and can even cause hospitalisation - this is a risk that we are not willing to take.
