Appointment Cancellation 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.
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.
There is a £50 deposit payable for all colour application appointments of 60mins or less // £100 deposit for all colour application appointments that take longer than 60min and for the Brazilian Blowdry.
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.
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.
No refunds will be given for gift voucher purchases. Gift vouchers are NOT redeemable for cash. Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from the purchase date. Gift voucher are redeemable in salon only against products and services. If change is required this will be given in the form of a credit on your profile at the salon to be redeemed on your next visit.
If you require a chaperone to accompany you to your appointment please let our front of house team know. We are a small boutique salon with limited space for our clients to relax if you anticipate someone accompanying to the salon please notify us in advance.

We do take every precaution possible to protect your clothes from colour but we would advise you to wear something appropriate to avoid disappointment. High necklines and collars are best avoided. Bag hooks are provided at every styling station for you to use as we are dog-friendly and even through our best efforts hair colour can get on the floor and transfer.
Extra Long & Thick Hair
We kindly ask that you let us know at the time of booking your appointment if you are a real-life mermaid and have extra long hair or thick hair as we may need to book extra time on to your appointment to achieve your desired look. If you do not tell us and our standard appointment time is not long enough we will have no choice but to reschedule your appointment and you will lose any deposit paid.
Please be aware that there is an extra charge for long/thick hair of £30 per service. This is purely because we have to book out more time and use extra product in the hair.
