Master Image is primarily an appointment based salon therefore late cancellations and no shows have a great impact on our business. Often we are unable to fill the time slots for no shows and late cancellations which is unfair to our technicians. Also we may have turned away other clients who could have taken that time slot.
To avoid late cancellations and no shows some services may require a deposit at the time of booking in order to reserve your appointment. Deposits are payable in cash or by card. Once a deposit has been paid it will be noted on your account and will be used towards services on the day of your appointment.
In the event of a cancellation or reschedule notice is required in order to receive a full deposit refund or to be able to rescheduled the appointment using the same deposit. Appointments less than 3hrs = 48hr notice required Appointments greater than 3hrs = 72hr notice required
If you ‘no show’ ‘late cancel’ or ‘late reschedule’ your deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will need to be made in order to book another appointment.
‘No Show’ = No Call, No Show
‘Late Cancel/Late Reschedule’ = Cancellations/Reschedules after the required notice.
New clients requesting appointments for services that are over 2hrs will be required to leave a deposit at the time of booking. This is for their first appointment. Future appointments will follow the existing client rules.
Service Time Deposit Required
2-3 HRS $50
3-5 HRS $100
5+ HRS $150
Existing clients with a history of 1 no show or 2 late cancels/late reschedules will be required to leave a deposit when booking any future appointments. An alert will be placed on their account to advise the co-ordinator that a deposit is required.
We understand that things happen, however due to the fact that we book our appointments back to back, late appointments effect everyone else on the schedule. Therefore if you are going to be more than 10 minutes late to your appointment we may possibly have to reschedule your appointment. Please call if you are going to be running late, we will check with the technician to see if they are still able to service you within the allotted time frame. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment and the stylist is unable to service you your deposit may be forfeited.
Services are sometimes unpredictable and although we always try our best to stay on schedule there may be times that our technicians are running behind. If we know ahead of time that our technician will be running late we will try to contact you as a courtesy to let you know.
We are aware that there are times when the weather causes the need for appointments to be cancelled/rescheduled. We respect the safety of others and in these cases we do not require a 48hr cancellation. Please be aware that the salon will be open if we are able to arrive in a safe and timely manner. If the salon needs to close due to inclement weather our team will contact each client on the schedule and we will work to accommodate rescheduling any cancelled guests to the next available appointment.
Master Image does not offer any monetary refunds on services rendered. However, we strive to ensure our clients are satisfied with the services they receive. If you are not satisfied with the service performed we will make every effort to rectify the situation.
