We appreciate all of our clients and are so happy you choose our talented team to make your hair dreams come to life! If you are new to The Owl Cove, we look forward to working with you and we cannot wait to show you what we can do for you. We tailor our appointments to the needs of your stylist and your hair. Your appointment is very important to us and we reserve the time especially for you.
DEPOSITS, CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULING
When an appointment is cancelled last minute or a client does not show for their appointment, it severely impacts our stylists.
To prevent this, a $50 non-refundable deposit will be taken for ALL color services and keratin treatments. The deposit will go towards your services on the day of your appointment. Any appointment cancelled less than 48 hours in advance or no-showed will result in a forfeit of the deposit.
When booking an appointment online, our booking system will require you to pay a $50 deposit to secure the appointment time. If you call the salon to schedule, please be prepared to make the deposit with your credit card over the phone. Any deposits not given within 24 hours will forfeit the appointment.
Deposits will be moved once if rescheduling prior to 48 hours before appointment. After the second time, the first deposit will be used to cover the canceled appointment and you will be required to leave another deposit. It is also up to the stylist’s discretion to require a deposit each time you schedule if you are a habitual rescheduler.
We are happy to offer an easy to use system to book appointments online. However, not all of our service menu is available for online booking. If this is your first appointment with us, please call the salon to schedule. If the wrong services are booked online, we will try our best to accommodate you. However, we may need to reschedule you to make sure your appointment has enough time allotted for the desired service. If you have any questions or are unsure which service to select please contact the salon directly.
We love to confirm appointments! We want you to look forward to your visit to The Owl Cove and we want to make sure you are scheduled for the perfect appointment! We are all busy and it’s easy to forget when something is scheduled in advance. As a courtesy, we will call one to two days prior as a reminder. You will also receive a system-generated email or text reminder prior to the appointment and the day of, depending on your contact preferences. We confirm 24 to 48 hours in advance to comply with our cancellation policy. Therefore, though you will hear from us prior to the appointment, it is still your responsibility to know when your appointment is and we ask that you please contact us if your phone number or email address have changed.
FORMS OF PAYMENT
We accept payment for services in the form of credit card, cash or check. However, please be aware that we cannot add gratuity to a credit card or give cash back on a check. Gratuities may be left in cash or Venmo (see below).
Who doesn’t run late sometimes? If you know that you will not arrive to your appointment on time, please call the salon as soon as you can. We can typically accommodate clients who are up to 15 minutes late. If you will be more than 15 minutes late, we may need to reschedule you. If you happen to be late, we will do our best to accommodate you, but your service time may be shortened.
In the event that you would not show up for your appointment without letting us know, you will be charged 100% of the original service booked in order to schedule with us again. In the event you miss two consecutive appointments without contacting the salon, you will be unable to schedule future appointments.
We love children! They are some of our cutest clients. We love to see our clients’ children growing up over the years when they visit us in the salon. We are happy to offer services to children but we respectfully ask that any child under 12 be accompanied by an adult who is not receiving services. Every area of the salon except the waiting room has too many potential dangers: slippery hair on the floor, hot tools, sharp scissors, etc. We pride ourselves on creating a relaxing, worry-free environment for our clients AND our staff and we would hate to see any young ones get hurt. Thank you for understanding.
