Appointment Cancellation & No Show Policy
We kindly ask that if you wish to cancel your appointment that you give us at least 48 hours notice. Any deposits given for services (e.g. Brazilian Blow Dry) will be lost if 48 hours is not given. If you book your appointment by way of our online booking system and do not adhere to our 48 hour cancellation the salon reserve the right to charge you up to the balance of your booking left to pay in salon by way of your online payment method.
In the event you do not show up to your appointment, you will lose any deposit paid to secure the appointment and you will be required to give a deposit for your next appointment. If you miss three consecutive appointments without contacting the salon, you will be unable to schedule future appointments. If you booked your appointment using our online booking system and do not show up for your appointment the salon reserve the right to charge you up to the balance of your booking left to pay in salon by way of your online payment method.
This policy is in place out of respect for our staff members and clients. Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice are difficult to fill.
If for any reason you are running late for your appointment please call us on 0207 221 2227.
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 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 the loss of your deposit.
Deposits for Appointments
We are sorry we have to take deposits for appointments at Samantha Cusick London. All of our talented team are self-employed and 'No Shows' to appointments really impacts their income.
When bookings are made over the phone a £50 deposit is payable for all colour appointments and/or services with a value of a £100 or more, for extension appointments and keratin treatments a £100 deposit is payable.
When bookings are made via our online booking system a 30% deposit is collected.
Deposits will be deducted from your bill in the salon. 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.
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 will apply. If you have altered or attempted to alter a 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 and deposit paid to secure the appointment and you will be required to give a deposit for your next appointment. 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 or before your appointment. At Samantha Cusick London we insist on following the rules and regulations of the manufacturers that supply our colour for your own safety and well being.
A skin test is required for all new clients that have not had colour with us before and also for existing clients that have not had colour with us in the last 6 months.
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.
Colouring Hair When Pregnant
NHS guidance states that chemicals in permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes, including those that contain bleaching agents, are not highly toxic. Although there's only limited research, most of the evidence shows that it's safe to colour or bleach your hair while pregnant.
Many women decide to wait to dye their hair until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the risk of chemical substances harming the baby is much lower, at Samantha Cusick London, we support this mind set and do not carry out any colour services on clients who are still in there First Trimester.
Please speak with your doctor for more information about colouring your hair when pregnant.
