Services & descriptions –
The services we offer can be found on our price list, we cannot break these down, all clients requesting a cut will receive a Wash, Cut, Blow dry & Finish – we believe you should take the time to pamper yourself, enjoy every moment of the full service, from the wash & massage to the soft, shiny, bouncy finish – not a rushed dry cut!
Health & Safety.
We carry out all allergy tests where required, please inform us if you have any other allergies or sensitivities you feel could be aggravated in the salon. It is important that you make us aware of any sensitivity (itch, heat, burn) during a chemical procedure.
Skin Tests –
A mandatory skin test is required for all new clients 48hrs (at the latest) before your first appointment, you must make us aware of any reactions from this test. From time to time additional skin tests may be required.
Young people & children –
Due to the nature of the business & the size of the salon we are unable to allow anybody under 18 not receiving a service into the salon, this is for the safety of our guests & team. We do not offer services to children below the age of 16, young people (16-18) must be accompanied by an adult.
The salon contains Water/Electricity/Heated equipment/Heavy furniture/Trailing cables to name but a few dangers, please be vigilant and keep in mind everyone’s health & safety within the salon.
Colour Correction is charged by the hour as quoted, a service fee of 20% is added onto the final bill during peak hours.
Colour correction is a process, therefore you are paying for a process not a final look. The final look might be achieved in one sitting, but sometimes/most of the time, it will take multiple sittings across many months. We will advise you at the consultation, be prepared to be patient – but it’s worth the wait, we promise!
It is extremely important that you are honest & in depth as possible with your hair history, one forgotten bleach could mean, SNAP! Don’t worry, we strand test all colour corrections to ensure your hair integrity will be protected, be honest, we won’t judge.
May vary & are never guaranteed! As above, your look may take some time to achieve, if your hair is dark and you want to be white, prepare to be ginger for a few months.
