Late Arrivals

If you arrive 15 minutes or more beyond the time the first service was scheduled to begin, depending upon the service to be performed, we may have to modify or completely eliminate your first service to accommodate the next guest’s scheduled appointment. If a service must be eliminated, we reserve the right to charge a 100% cancellation fee.
