The loss of income that we have experienced in the last couple of months from people either not showing up or ringing on the day to move their appointment has seriously impacted our ability to continue to recover from last years 20 week lockdown and the more recent 5 day lockdown in February.
Standard practice in the hair and beauty industry is for clients to pay a small deposit when they make their booking. This is a system we have managed to avoid until now.
When you book with us you will now be asked for a deposit as follows:
New Clients – 25% of the cost of their service
Occasional Clients – 25% of the cost of their service
Regular Clients – 15% of the cost of their service
Our online booking system is now set up to take payments.
Cancellations: If you need to cancel your appointment your deposit will be refunded if you give us 48 hours notice. Alternatively we’re happy to move your appointment to another time and apply your deposit to that visit.
Rescheduling: We’re very flexible with appointment changes when given 48 hours notice as this gives us enough time to fill the vacancy. If you reschedule with less than 48 hours notice your deposit will not be refunded.
Exceptions to the above: We encourage everyone to reschedule their appointments if they have any covid symptoms. If you are having a covid test, waiting for the results of a covid test or you have a cold or flu your deposit will be rolled over to your next appointment.
No-Shows: If you fail to attend your appointment for any reason without contacting us your deposit will not be refunded and you may be asked for a 50% deposit if you rebook with us, depending on the circumstances.
We thank everyone for their ongoing support with regards to this new policy
Times are stressful so our focus this month is on relaxation, calmness and holistic wellbeing . With this in mind we’re offering you the following deeply relaxing treatment. It’s our version of a winter getaway where you can unwind and block out the world for a little while. Here’s what you get:
You’ll definitely be floating on air by the end of your treatment so we’ll direct you to our lounge area where you can relax with your choice of refreshment (did somebody say hot chocolate?) and a cheeky chocolatey treat. Your therapist will join you briefly to discuss the skincare she used in your facial and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Allow 90 minutes for your treatment and you’re welcome to stay in our lounge area until you’re awake enough to drive home.
ALL THIS FOR JUST $97 UNTIL JUNE 30th
The beautiful products from Eminence Organics and Inika Organic are firm favourites with our clients because they tick every box –
Most people only need to purchase their skincare products once or twice a year – they’re so concentrated that you only need to apply a tiny amount. If you’re not familiar with this product range, come in and ask us about Eminence Organics. Keep scrolling to the bottom of the page to see our fantastic Facial Packages.
We’re very excited to be able to add these beautiful earrings to our range of products. Designed by Indigenous artist Michelle Kerrin, they make a great gift or you can just spoil yourself
COVID SAFETY RULES:
Due to ongoing hygiene and social distancing rules we request that all guests at the salon agree to the following conditions:
We want you to relax and enjoy your time with us so it’s important that you know our cleaning schedule:
All surfaces are sprayed with disinfectant and Glen 20 after each use – your chair and table top in front of the mirror, the basin and basin chair, every item that your stylist or therapist uses including scissors, hairdryers, brushes, combes, tweezers, tint brushes and everything else they touch. Our eftpos machine is wiped with methylated spirits after each use.
Throughout the day we also regularly disinfect and spray with Glen 20 every door handle including the exterior door handles, light switch, tap, and the toilet and toilet button. This is done roughly every 2 hours.
At the end of the day every single surface is washed with hot soapy water and then sprayed with disinfectant and Glen 20 and left to dry overnight. This includes every chair and couch, every table top including our front desk, every bench and shelf and our flooring.
In our beauty rooms there is fresh disposable bedroll covering the towels for each client and the towels are washed and replaced after every appointment.

As members of Sustainable Salons we’ve been recycling more than 95% of our salon waste for the last 3 years. We love the fact that we’re not contributing to landfill with items like foil, plastic, chemicals and hair all being recycled in useful and imaginative ways. If you’re unfamiliar with Sustainable Salons and the great work that they do we encourage you to visit their website at www.sustainablesalons.org.
In line with our commitment to protecting the environment we’re now offering a recycle service to our clients:
Bring your empty product containers back to us for recycling and we’ll give you $1 off the price of your replacement products.
Achieve your best ever skin with one of our new Facial Packages that combine professional salon services with home maintenance offers.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment so you can fill out a Consultation Form and enjoy a relaxing cup of tea before your treatment.
Our gift vouchers are valid for 3 years however if the price of our services are increased during that time you will be required to pay the difference for the service.
Gift Vouchers are not redeemable for cash or products. They are for services only.
If you have a gift voucher and fail to attend your appointment you will forfeit the voucher.
If you cancel your appointment with less than 48 hours notice you will forfeit the voucher. If you are unexpectedly unable to attend it is advised that you send someone else in your place to enjoy the service so the voucher is not wasted.
If you arrive late for your appointment your service will be cut short so the client booked in after you is not inconvenienced however the voucher will still be redeemed for the original service booked. If time permits, the entire service will be provided.
We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of hair and beauty bookings. If you need to move or cancel your appointment please give us 48 hours notice so we can offer your timeslot to another guest. Obviously there are circumstances that can make 48 hours notice impossible to give so at those times please let us know as soon as you can.
No-Shows and Late Arrivals – If you fail to attend your scheduled appointment you may be asked for a deposit of 50% when rebooking, depending on the circumstances and the service booked. If you arrive late for your appointment we may need to cut your service short so the client booked in after you is not inconvenienced however you will still be charged for the original service booked. If time permits the entire service will be provided.
Deposits – We now require deposits for most services as follows: New Clients and Occasional Clients – 25% Regular Clients – 15%. Deposits will be rolled over to your next appointment if you give us 48 hours notice that you need to reschedule.
