Frequently Asked Questions
**The updated policies below are effective as of 10/15/2020**
*Please note: Tips are cash or Venmo only. We no longer accept credit card tips.
1. New Client Retainer Policy for Services:
If you are a new client, please click here for more detailed information. New clients booking their first service with us will require a 50% non-refundable retainer of the value of the service that is booked. This will go directly towards the final service balance (meaning it is not an additional fee). We will not be able to book the appointment without a retainer.
2. Cancellation Policy:
We enforce a strict 24 hour cancellation policy. If an appointment is cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled service, 100% of the service booked will be expected to be paid at the time of cancellation, or no future services will be booked. A credit card will also be kept on file for future discrepancies.
3. Late/No-Show Appointments:
If you are any more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, we reserve the right to refuse service. This is to ensure that our stylists stay on schedule. A no-show appointment will result in a 100% fee of the service booked. Your next appointment will not be booked if the fee is not paid.
4. Client Termination:
If three no-call no-show appointments occur consecutively (meaning there was no attempt to contact us prior to the appointment time) it will result in a "client termination" and you will no longer be able to book any services with any stylist at Salon Sapphire. The card on file will also be charged for the full amount of the service booked.
5. Retainer for Services:
A 50% retainer is required for any service valuing $150 or more. Retainers can be made over the phone with a credit card (or in person at the salon with a different form of payment) and will be applied to your final service balance.
6. Satisfaction Guaranteed:
If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your service, in lieu of a refund, we would be happy to adjust whatever you disliked about your service for free. An appointment must be made within seven days of services rendered for it to be free of charge.
7. Children at Salon Sapphire:
Children are more than welcome in the salon so long as they are accompanied by an adult and closely monitored.

Perfect for all skin types. It is sweat proof as well and extremely long-lasting (perfect for hot summer weddings dancing all night!).
8. How many stylists will work my wedding?
We decide how many stylists we need based off of a few factors:
Firstly, how long of a time span you have to get your bridal party ready. Secondly, how many services
there are to complete. With that information, we plan a timeline to accurately plan out how many stylists are needed to complete your bridal party in the time frame you have!
