Late Arrivals: We request that you arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your appointment time, so that we can provide you with the hospitality experience that you deserve. If you arrive late for an appointment, we may not have enough time available to accommodate you and complete the reserved service. As a courtesy to others, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment if you arrive late.
Cancellations: We require 24 hour advance notice for all cancellations. If you do not cancel an appointment in advance, we reserve the right to charge you for the full cost of the service(s) and/or require a credit card at the time of booking future appointments. After three (3) no show appointments or cancellations within 24 hours, we reserve the right to restrict the ability to create online appointments.
Extensions: Our stylists are trained to handle extensions with care. However, we are not responsible for damaged or loose extensions as a result of a Ten Friends service. While we happily service clients with extensions, Ten Friends is not responsible for extensions that come loose or are damaged during the wash or blow dry. To accommodate for the extra time needed to style clip-in extensions, Ten Friends will charge an extra $15 for this service.
