NO CHECKS,NO CHECKS AND NO CHECKS POST DATED
We strive for excellence in "priority scheduling'.We do not schedule more than one client concurrently with the same stylist for multiple hour services. We ask that all clients arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your service if possible. We cannot guarantee service to clients that arrive 15 minutes or later than their scheduled appointment time. An inconvenience fee of $10 will be charged for clients 15 minutes late. We reserve the right to refuse service and retain an advance deposit of clients who are more than 15 minutes late to an appointment . Online booking is available 24/7 but only accessible 12 hrs before appointment you are requesting. Stylist, however, are not available 24/7. Please be mindful of business hours before calling our personal cellphones.
Services will not be changed once you are at your appointment if time does not permit between clients.Example-if you schedule for a relaxer and style do not ask to get a Sew-in.Appointments are made according the time allotted for the service to create a professional salon flow.
ACCOMPANYING GUEST AND CHILDREN

If you bring your child and our tranquil atmosphere is interrupted you will be asked to make adjustments or even reschedule.Thank you for your cooperation.NO CHILDREN ALLOWED UNLESS BEING SERVICED.

Consultations must be done in advance and in person if you have questions regarding weave and /or styles. Any consultation over 10 minutes will require a $10 fee ,considering time is money and valuable to me and other clients. If you are unsure about your services please prepare for this rate.If your are extremely unsure or undecided please save everyone some time and call back when you are sure . Pictures are required for desired haircuts to ensure that the client and customer are on the same page. Consultations will not be done over the phone OR by email. If you have a picture bring with you to the appointment and hair if style desires weave. We have had good experience with medium grade hair such as Milky Way(not Milky Way Que) Dreamweaver, Premium Now, Janet, KISS Duby. Usually 2 packs for a whole head and 1 pack for a few tracks or 1/2 head should be plenty. DO NOT STOP BY THE SALON TO "CHAT". We conduct business at all times so you will be charged for the time and I will not interrupt another clients time to consult. All consults must be scheduled.
Solicitors of any kind are unwelcomed in this salon. We do only business related to hair and our customers we provide. You will be asked to leave immediately for soliciting.
Appointments not cancelled before 24 hrs can result in a 50% fee of service requested that day. No shows/no call result in a 100% fee. All appointments must be booked through StyleSeat with a card to reserve your appointment.
Constant cancellations or no show will result in dismissal off the stylist books. It is inconsiderate to hold slots that someone else can have as well as you are conflicting with the stylist income and the way she trys to operate a professional business.We know things do come up but Please dont make cancellations/no shows a habit(up to 3 or more times in a row,in the same week,month,etc) or stylist just may not return your calls,emails,text for appointments. This is a serious business and we have NO TOLERANCE for clientele that are unable to adhere with our professional environment.
Please respect all salon policies in order to keep an ongoing good client,stylist relationship.
No shows are not tolerated.If you no show you might as well move on.
We are not 24/7 hairstylist. We have traditional business hours with the exception of online booking. PLEASE DO NOT CALL/TEXT OUR CELLPHONES AFTER OUR POSTED BUSINESS HOURS. If you cannot wait to make an appointment within our business hours, that is the benefits of online booking. All calls/text after business hours will be ignored until the next business day.
**CELLPHONE USAGE UNDER THE DRYER NOT PERMITTED. CLIENTS TEND TO BE VERY LOUD ON CALLS INTERRUPTING THE TRANQUILITY OF THE ATMOSPHERE. WE WOULD RATHER NOT KNOW YOUR PERSONAL BUSINESS. YOU MAY BE ASKED TO STEP OUTSIDE TO COMPLETE IMPORTANT CALLS.
We understand that many of you visit us on your lunch break. Please locate to the back of the salon in the designated area for food.
