The boring but important parts of your booking.
As a small business, it is vital for us to run productively and efficiently. Unfortunately, the effects of a client not showing up to an appointment, or cancelling last minute, has a detrimental impact to our business. We therefore ask our clients to respect our deposit and cancellation policies and help us run smoothly. When making bookings you are entering a contract with Create Your Beauty Ltd, we reserve the right to charge the full amount or deduct your treatment from your course if missed at short notice.
In order to run efficiently and to time, we ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes beforehand to ensure your treatment starts on time. If you arrive late to your appointment, we may have to shorten your treatment or it may have to be cancelled. The charge for the original booking will still apply.
Please note, if this is your first time visiting us we do require you to arrive 10 minutes before your treatment starts to fill out any necessary consultation forms.
CANCELLATIONS & NO-SHOWS
Your time is precious and when you book at CYB skin clinic, that time is held especially for you. If you cannot make your appointment, need to reschedule, or cancel, we respectfully ask that you provide us with notice, allowing us to offer your booking time to another guest. To ensure you notify us in the correct time, we request that we are notified during our working hours, any cancellations or requests to reschedule outside of our working hours won’t be picked up until we return. Please see our opening hours available on our website.
2a. CANCELLATION NOTICES
3-hour notice for bookings made on the same day
24-hour notice for bookings of up to 1 hour
48-hour notice for bookings up to 2 hours
72-hour notice for bookings up to 3 hours or more
If we receive less than the required notice, the full charge for the original booking will still apply. If you cancel or re-arrange the day before your appointment but under the notice period, you will be charged 50%, if you cancel on the day of your appointment or do not attend you will be charged 100% of the booking total. If you are on a course, one treatment will be forfeited. This applies to clients on courses too.
2b. CANCELLATION FEES
Late Cancellation: 50% loss of payment
Cancellation on the day of appointment: Full loss of payment
Non-arrival: Full loss of payment
For example, if your appointment is at 3pm on Thursday
- If you cancel on Tuesday which is over 24 hours’ notice you will not be charged
- If you cancel at 5pm on Wednesday, you will be charged 50%
- If you cancel at 10am on Thursday or do not attend, you will be charged 100%
If you do not attend, or cancel late three times or more, we will require a 100% payment at time of booking, for all future bookings.
If you are new to our clinic or if you are booking a treatment of 1 hour or more, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit of the total cost to secure and confirm your appointment. Your appointment cannot be booked until a deposit is taken. Deposits will be forfeited as full or part payment for any late cancellations or no shows, as per our cancellation policy. Deposits are non-refundable. If you decide to cancel and rebook, at a later date, which falls inside our cancellation policy, we will add your deposit to your account to use towards your future treatment.
Some treatments require a patch test to be done at least 24/48 hours prior to your first treatment, this still applies even if you have had the treatment done previously elsewhere. We will also require you to have a further patch test 12 months after your initial test. If you choose not to undergo a patch test, you will be required to sign a disclaimer form before your treatment is carried out.
Please note, we always recommend to have a patch test prior to your initial treatment, especially if you are sensitive to products.
For your comfort and safety, please notify our specialists if you have any allergies, physical issues, disabilities, or are pregnant when making your booking. It is our policy to ensure all clients fill out a consultation form before a treatment is carried out, but it is your responsibility to inform us at the time of booking of any health or medical conditions.
FRIENDS & FAMILY
We understand that you may wish to bring friends or family with you when you attend your appointment, however please understand that due to our insurance we do not allow anyone but the therapist and client being treated in the treatment rooms. Clients are more than welcome to bring someone with them to wait in reception but please note for any treatments 30 minutes or more, we ask that you attend your appointment alone. This is to ensure minimal disruption to other guests attending the clinic for treatments. Due to health and safety regulations, unsupervised children are not permitted in the salon. If we have to reschedule on the day due to childcare arrangements, you may incur a cancellation fee.
To ensure that you and all our clients have the best experience, we have a no phone policy through-out the clinic and politely ask that once you enter the clinic your mobile phone is placed on silent or turned off.
LOYALTY REWARD PROGRAM
