If you are unable to reschedule your date or if we are already booked up on the new date, the complete security deposit will be retained by us regardless of notice given due to administration costs and loss of other bookings caused by allocating your appointment.
DEPOSIT/ BOOKING FEE FIRST CONFIRMED FIRST SERVED POLICY
Bookings can only be confirmed once a deposit/booking fee has been received. All deposits/booking fees are non refundable or transferable. The deposit/booking fee is your booking retainer which means we turn away all other jobs during your appointment time. You're welcome to secure your wedding date with us first and have your trial closer to your wedding date, or vice versa as we want to ensure all our clients are happy with their decision. After placing your deposit/booking fee, If someone in your wedding party decides to pull out or their service the balance will remain the same you have the option to replace them with someone else.
IF YOU CANCEL YOUR BOOKING
In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your booking any payments you have made are strictly non-refundable, and non-transferable. If we book you in for hair or makeup it means we cannot book other clients and it's likely we have turned away other business. Due to our high demand for bookings, we are regularly booked months, if not years, in advance .
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
After paying your deposit/booking fee - If someone decides to pull out of their service, the total amount quoted will remain the same and no refund will be offered, you have the option to replace them with someone else. Changes to your booking by adding another person onto your original booking can only be accepted if time / resources allow on your wedding day and we will require prior notice and payment due at the specified time. Adding extra people on the day, without prior warning, may jeopardise the quality of our work or delay the ceremony.
HAIR & MAKEUP TRIAL
Hair and makeup trials are recommended to make sure you’re going to look perfect on your big day. We do one look during the trial and complete it to perfection. We will do as much styling as we can in trial sessions (90 minutes for makeup, 90 minutes for hairstyling). Trials per 30 mins (after the first 90 minutes will be charged at CHF 50 per 30 minutes. A second trial can be booked subject to availability, the same charges as your first trial will apply. Trials are not compulsory but are recommended, without a trial we will not accept responsibility if a chosen style or look does not work on a wedding day or there are circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, or expectations, and a refund will not be offered. 7 days prior notice must be given if you wish to cancel or reschedule your trial date. In the likely event that we have turned away alternative bookings to accommodate your trial, you will be charged. We reserve the right to cancel a booking following a trial, without a refund of the deposit, in circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, expectations and/or the client is uncooperative, not open to suggestions or makes any member of our team feel uncomfortable. It is advisable that you familiarise yourself with our work portfolio and ensure you are confident our capabilities and style are appropriate before securing a booking. Strictly no trials are on Saturday's due to wedding jobs.
Are you dreaming of a long and flowing bridal hair? or a seriously stylish up-do that requires lots of volume? Then you might have considered having hair extensions for your wedding. If you have fine, thin hair and struggling to grow your hair fast enough for your big day or you simply want to make sure you can create the hairstyle you want we highly suggest having hair extensions. Please inform us prior to your trial so we can order in the correct colour and advise you on pricing. If a member of the bridal party wishes to bring their own clip in extensions on the wedding day they must have them already placed on their head prior to starting hair services or if they want the bridal hair stylist to place and curl them, an additional fee will be assessed to their hair service. This may throw off the timeline also, due to extra time placing the bridal hair extensions and curling of the additional hair so it is very important we are informed prior to the wedding day.
Parking must be provided for and paid for by the client. Our hair and makeup artists carry a lot of heavy equipment so valet parking at all hotels is a must and will need to be arranged prior to the wedding date please.
Travel fee will be calculated depending on how many stylists you require and the distance the stylists will need to travel to your location. A personalised quote will be emailed to you. You will be expected to cover all costs for hotel accommodation where it is not practical to travel on the day of your wedding i.e. limited time available, or severe weather conditions have been forecast.
EARLY MORNING WEDDINGS
CHF 50 per 30mins apply for before 6am starts.
If you would like to reduce the time taken, I can bring my assistant for an additional flat fee of CHF200 + travel fee costs.
IN THE EVENT OF DELAYS EXPERIENCED ON THE DAY
If we experience unforeseen delays which are out of our control refunds will not be given in the event that one or more services are forfeited as a result and no compensation will be offered if we overrun. If you are aware of factors, which could delay or hinder our journey, such as diversions, road closures, speed restrictions, issues etc. please advise us as soon as possible so we can factor this into our route. No refund or compensation will be offered for delays caused by other wedding vendors, guests, or members of the bridal party. A minimum of 60 minutes will be allocated for hair or makeup application per person. If you suspect any member of your bridal party may pose as a challenge in any way, they are encouraged to have a trial to avoid potential delays on the day.
CLIENT OBLIGATIONS ON THE WEDDING DAY
