We are committed to giving you the best salon experience and results for your hair service. Building a relationship with our clients is our top priority and we welcome the opportunity to adjust any part of your service to your satisfaction. Kindly give us notice on the same day of service or within 2hrs in order for your stylist to remedy any adjustments needed. We want you to feel safe communicating your needs to us and we will work tirelessly to ensure your satisfaction.
We kindly ask for a 48 hour notice should you need to cancel your reservation. Anything less than that makes it difficult to fill our stylists‘ valuable time. In an effort to respect the time of our salon guests and stylists, we reserve the right to evaluate same day cancellations and apply a $35 re-booking fee.
We understand life gets hectic and things fall off your radar, which is why we ask for your email address and mobile number to remind you of your upcoming salon reservation 4 days prior through our automatic system. In an effort to respect our stylist time and livelihood, we require no show fee of $35 to be paid in full prior to scheduling and/or honoring future reservations.
Our goal at Abliss Studios is to offer an ablissful experience for our guest as well consistency/ quality of service. Late arrivals tend to create stress and risk a compromised experience for both stylists and other guests. To ensure promptness and quality for all reservations throughout the day, we may elect to reschedule/cancel guests running 15+ minutes late with a $35 inconvenient fee. We encourage you to plan your commute to the salon accordingly.
For safety reasons and insurance purposes, children not receiving services are not allowed in the salon. We do not have a child-proof salon and due to sharp tools, hot tools, chemicals and heavy costly equipment, the salon is not a safe space for children to be left unattended. We also do not want to compromise the experience of our guests,We appreciate you understanding.
ACCEPTED FORMS OF PAYMENT
We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, AmEx and Discover cards with a $2 credit card processing fee. We also allow stylist gratuities on your card and of course cash gratuities are always appreciated.
We know our guests expect the highest standards at Abliss Studios and we are committed to providing that even during this challenging time. We believe the safest way to handle the salon situation is to treat everyone, including ourselves, as if we could be infected. Our plan is to go beyond what is recommended The following list will outline those protocols as well as inform you of what to expect upon returning to the salon.
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Your stylist may reach out to you in advance of your appointment to touch base with more specific information relevant to you and your upcoming service.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO THE SALON
Initially we will have a reception staff member outside the salon to check you in. However, your stylist may ask you to contact him/her directly rather than approaching the reception staff at the front door of the salon.
You will be asked by a salon staff member or your stylist to 1) have your temperature taken using a no-touch digital thermometer and 2) sign a liability waiver prior to your service.
Upon arriving to the salon, we will check you in and ask that you wait in your car until your stylist is ready to see you.
Our reception area and beverage bar are currently closed to minimize traffic within the salon.
We will continue to practice social distancing of 6 feet in the salon (except between you and your stylist during your service).
