Arriving at the Salon
Our therapists work by an appointment and make every effort to ensure that appointments run to schedule. In order to assist please be prompt for your appointment.
If you are a new Client to the salon or receiving a new treatment for the 1st time please arrive 5-10 minutes earlier in order to complete the required consultation form and ensure you receive your full treatment time.
Our treatment times include a short consultation and commence at your booking start time. If you are late your treatment the time may be cut short and you will still be charged for the full treatment session. This ensures that our booking system runs smoothly and that the next Client’s treatment time is not impacted. This is especially important when other Clients may also working to a tight schedule due to travel, work and child care commitments etc…
