Arriving at the Salon & other Guests (Including babies & children)
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…
Our waiting area is limited so we kindly ask that you attend alone and do not bring other guests unless they have booked appointments. To ensure other client’s enjoy their treatments, as well as health & safety & therapist’s ability to keep to treatment times babies & children under the age of 12 are not permitted in the salon.

A valid contact number and email address must be provided during booking to facilitate communication regarding your appointment.
We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, and we strive to accommodate our clients’ needs. However, we must also consider the impact of last-minute cancellations and no-shows on our business and staff. Therefore, we have implemented the following cancellation policy:
Cancellations made 24 hours or more before the scheduled appointment time will not incur any cancellation fees. Cancellations made less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time will be subject to a 50% cancellation charge of the total cost of the booked services. Clients who do not attend their booked appointments (no-shows) will be charged a 90% fee of the total cost of the booked services.
If you need to reschedule your appointment, we kindly request that you provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice to avoid cancellation fees.
You can reschedule your appointment without incurring any additional charges, provided you do so outside the 24-hour notice period.
We recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Late arrivals may result in a shortened service time, but the full fee for the booked service(s) will still apply.
For group bookings of three or more people, we require a 50% deposit to secure the appointment(s). This deposit is non-refundable if the appointment is cancelled less than 24 hours in advance or if there are any no-shows in the group.
Unless indicated that a deposit is required, we do not take prepayment and instead operate a secure card capture system which, rather like a hotel booking system. takes card details in lieu of a deposit. Your final payment will be due at the time of appointment.
Selected treatments, appointments that require large reservations of the therapist’s diary time may require a deposit. We reserve the right to take a deposit for Clients with a history of repeated no show or late cancellation or frequent rescheduling.
We prioritise the health and safety of our clients and staff. If you are feeling unwell or exhibiting symptoms of illness, please cancel your appointment, and we will gladly reschedule it for a later date.

What happens if I want to make a complaint ?
Studio 8 Complaints Policy
Our priority is for you to be completely satisfied with the service you receive from us. We run a professional business, so we aim for the highest standards in everything we do. Complaints are rare, but we take them seriously, so we have a complaints policy and process we follow to make sure things are put right where needed and we learn from your feedback.
Tell someone you’re not happy with the service you’ve received, either while you’re in the salon or as soon as possible after leaving. Calmly and clearly explain the problem.
We will listen to your feedback and ask questions as necessary to understand why you are making a complaint. We aim to resolve all complaints within eight weeks.
If you have already left the salon, don’t go to another salon as we have the right to see exactly what the service or treatment you received from us looks like. We will arrange a suitable time for you to come back into our salon and discuss your complaint in private.
Where we think your complaint is reasonable, we will redo a part or all of the service or treatment again as soon as possible, free of charge. The work will be done by a different beauty therapist if you prefer, although this may not be possible if the individual is self-employed.
If we can’t fix the problem, we may offer a partial or full refund depending on how reasonable we consider your complaint to be.
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
If, after following our complaints policy, we still can’t agree on how to resolve the complaint to your satisfaction, as required by the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes Regulations 2015, we will refer you to a certified alternative dispute resolution provider, Hair & Beauty Mediation.
As mediators, they listen to both sides and help us work towards a fair and reasonable compromise which is acceptable to both parties. It is not legally binding unless both parties agree on an outcome, but it is a cheaper and quicker alternative than taking legal action.
Please note there is a charge of £12 including VAT for the client and £30 including VAT for the salon.
