Cancellation Policy - 24 hours

Please give as much notice as possible if you can't make the appointment. I require a minimum of 24 hours. Missed appointments and last minute cancellations affect my ability to rebook the appointment.  

 

A few tips to consider regarding your appointment:

 

  • Not feeling well?
    • If you are not feeling well please let me know as soon as possible so I can try and book the appointment. Even a day or two before if your starting to feel a cold/flu coming on.  Please do not come if you are contagious. If I am starting to feel sick or under the weather, I will let you know as soon as possible as well.
  • Booking an appointment during your workday:
    • Booking an appointment during your work day is fine with me. However, last minute work situations can come up and if you can't make the appointment this is considered a cancel (and you will be charged). So, if you think thats a possibility; best to avoid it by booking your appointment after the work day  or book a Saturday appointment. I also am happy to do last minute appointments. You can always try day of. I check my email a few times a day.
  • Running late?
    • I always book extra time into the appointment in case you are running a few min late or I am running a few min over. If you are really late to the appointment it's fine and I will do what I can with the time we have.
  • Like to add or remove a service to your scheduled appointment?  Please email me and let me know so I can adjust our appointment time accordingly. 

 

Common Pre-appointment Questions

What time should I arrive to my appointment?

  • I love that clients want to be on time for their appointments...you never know how traffic is going to be. However, due to my space lacking a private waiting area; please arrive at the scheduled time or no earlier than 15 minutes prior. I only have drapes separating the waiting room (they provide privacy but not sound reduction). So if you are super early, there is a Starbucks, 2 dry cleaners, Safeway, and Goodwill all on my street.  Thank you!

What about:

  • Irritated skin?
    • If your skin is really irritated it's best to wait on booking your facial until it is healed. For example: if you burned your face in the sun, have a rash, severely picked your face, or over used a very drying product (such as retinol or an acne product).
  • Retinol use?
    • It's best to stop using strong retinols 5 to 7 days prior to the appointment. 
  • Should I shave?
    • If you are a man, it's best (but not required) to shave the night before the facial. 
  • Make-up on?
    • If your coming from work and you have make-up on...don't worry, I can remove it. 
  • Questions about your current products?
    • Take pictures of the bottles (front and back so I can see the ingredients). That way I can give you an informed assessment of what your using and better access your current and future routine.
