TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING TO SERVICES

21. SERVICES REGULATIONS RELATING TO CROWNCOUTURE HAIR EXTENSION SERVICE

21.2 No shows or last minute cancellations would leave CrownCouture professionals with empty appointment times that could have been utilised by another client. This is why CrownCouture requires a 24 hour advance cancellation notice.  If appointments are cancelled more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment the deposit is not affected and CrownCouture will gladly reschedule the client’s appointment.  For appointment cancelled with less than 24 hour notice the deposit will be forfeited. CrownCouture Hair Extensions reserves the right to, in exceptional circumstances, refund the deposit but may request additional proof surrounding the circumstances of the “no-show”. Clients with two (2) no-show appointments within a one (1) year period may need to prepay future appointments.
