The Salon

Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment to allow stress free check in. All treatments include consultation and after-care advice within your appointment time.

All treatment courses booked are payable in advance and are not to be shared with any other people.

Please give prior notice if you need to cancel or change appointments. At least 24 hours notice must be given to cancel an appointment. Regrettably non- attendance without the required notice will incur a 30% cancellation fee of your treatment.

Clients who have high blood pressure, heart conditions, are pregnant, or who are currently receiving any medical treatment are advised to consult their doctor before signing up for a treatment.


Gift Vouchers are available for all treatments and are purchasable in the salon or over the phone. They can be posted out to you for an additional cost to cover the postage. Our vouchers expire after one year.

Clients under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

I accept all credit and debit cards including apple pay.

Please note:  I don’t always have reception cover so the front door may be locked while I am in doing treatments with clients.
