She knows that her clients really appreciate the honest feedback of an experienced beauty professional. This is the origin of our hair salon name and the origin of our “Straight Talk” core value.

★ CALL TO DISCUSS ANY SPECIAL NEEDS ★
If you do not show up for an appointment, or you arrive late for an appointment, or you do not provide adequate notice when requesting to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you are in violation of this policy and agree to pay our penalty. If you schedule an appointment for someone else, and they violate this policy, you are also in violation of this policy, and agree to pay our penalty. Please make use of our reminder emails or text messages to help avoid violating this policy.
You must be present in the salon and arrive on time for your appointment. Not coming in at all or arriving more than 10 minutes late for an appointment is a violation of this policy. Late arrivals are just as disruptive to our business because every other appointment after yours would be negatively affected.
Should you need to cancel or change the date or time of your appointment, we require adequate notice. Adequate notice is a minimum of 48 hours for standard services and 96 hours for specialty services (e.g., Keratin Treatment, DevaCurl, Straightening, Weddings, Special Requests, Advanced Services, etc).
By making an appointment with us, you agree to this policy. If you violate this policy, you agree to pay a penalty equivalent to the FULL COST of the services that were scheduled. You agree to allow us to use your credit card that is on file to pay this penalty, or will pay us in person if we cannot process the credit card transaction. You understand that we will flag your account and refuse all future services until your account is in good standing.
Please understand that we’re specialists and professionals running a small local business. Last minute changes, unexpected no-shows, and late arrivals, affect our paycheck. Imagine if your employer told you that you weren’t getting paid for a few hours every day (and they keep doing this every day for different reasons). Without this policy, that’s what happens to us every day. Stylists who are in high demand can easily fill their openings when given proper notice. Otherwise, it results in a loss of income.
