Please read ALL Safety Policies & Salon Procedures carefully

PHD Hairdressing Salon desires to create a safe, clean and relaxing environment for our guests, therefore specific policies and procedures need to be implemented that are non-negotiable; especially now during the COVID 19 pandemic, so that we as well as our guests can be assured of a safe environment, while being treated fairly and respectfully.

Our salon reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who does not adhere to our Safety Policies and or Salon Procedures. Please see policies and procedures below.

COVID Protocols

Currently strict COVID Protocols are kept in order to keep everyone safe and avoid high risk situations:

Dear Guest

With the entire country moved to the new amended Level 4 Lock Down by President Ramaphosa on 28 June 2021 & due to the high number COVID cases in Gauteng, we take extra special care with regards to how we do things at the salon in order to keep ourselves safe, our guests safe and to ensure that we are able to keep trading without compromising our livelihoods.
Although we already do what is required and more to comply with COVID protocol regulations we ask that everyone help us to be extra safe during the third wave and to help flatten the curve.

To ensure our safety and to avoid uncomfortable and awkward situations we ask that all guests read & understand these rules and know what to expect when next visiting the salon, as we will be strict in implementing these rules and clients not willing to comply will not be allowed access to the salon.

Arrival Time

Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you arrive late we cannot guarantee the full length of your service. Although we will take every measure possible to still accommodate you timeously, you might be required to wait to be attended to if other guests of PHD arrive on time for their appointments. Clients that are on time are priority.

Appointments

PHD Hairdressing is not a “walk-in” salon and operate off of booked appointments. This does not mean that you will never get a same day appointment, but we strongly encourage you to schedule your next appointment with our reception when you check out to avoid disappointment.
For those who need weekend appointments, we strongly encourage you to book at least a week in advance.

Cancellation of Appointments Policy

We ask that all appointments made to please be honoured. Do not schedule appointments that you cannot keep as this comes at a great loss to our stylists who are not able to fill that slot at short notice. All cancelations must be made at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. We do realize that circumstances arise beyond our control sometimes and can intrude on previously made plans.  For that reason, it is PHD’s policy to give each guest a “second chance” the first time an appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice. However, the second time a client cancels with less than 24 hours’ notice or is a “No Call No Show”; we will charge a “Late Cancellation Fee” for the appointment at a charge no less than 20% of the service booked for the appointment and will be added in addition to your next service visit.

Strict Terms of Payment

All services provided as well as products sold are done on a COD basis only, which requires you as our guest to pay in full on completion. PHD management does not allow for any accounts or terms of payment. New customers of PHD can be requested to pay a 10% booking deposit before any extensive colour service appointment is performed at the discretion of management and will depend on the service purchased. The Management of PHD retains the right to cancel any scheduled appointment if above payment terms are not met.  We accept Visa, MasterCard and or cash payments.

Gratuities

Our prices do not reflect any gratuities, so for those who wish to show appreciation, the industry average is 10%-15% of the service and unfortunately can only be paid in cash. We cannot accept gratuities added onto your card payment.

Refund Policy on retail products.

Only unused and unopened merchandise / products may be returned within 7 days of purchase; for full refund or exchange, or in exchange for in salon credit only.

Client Information

It is important that client records are kept and updated with current and accurate information. Your information is used to communicate necessary information to you such as appointment reminders as well as keep the history of your hair on record.  We will also use your information in an emergency situation to contact a next of kin. You will occasionally receive promotions on whatsapp and may choose to be excluded. Your account is created when you book your first appointment. All client information and service procedures are confidential and/or private.

Consultation

All clients will be consulted before a service is performed and informed of the condition, quality, any disorders and/or damage found in their hair or scalp (if any), in addition to any hair care regimens the stylist recommends. PHD as a whole or in part, will not be responsible or liable if you choose not to adhere to these recommendations or acknowledge the analysis and condition of your hair and scalp. We will not be held responsible or liable when clients choose to use products or have hair services rendered outside of our salon. PHD uses only the most professional products to promote healthy hair.  In order for us to guarantee our work, we do not use or encourage clients to bring their own products for services, other than prescription products that have been prescribed by a medical practitioner.  Any other products will only be used at the Management’s discretion.

Children

Due to the nature of our business, we only accept children as clients provided they are over the age of 5 years and well behaved. With our limited space and the use of chemicals, hot irons and sharp scissors, we do not want any accidents to happen especially to the little ones.  Additionally, we are committed to providing a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere for all of our guests, and we do not offer child care services.  If you must bring your children with you for your appointment, they must be well behaved and stay seated in the waiting area.

Friends and Family

We know that you love to have company sometimes at the hair salon; however with space being limited we like to keep space for other guests having services rendered. Your family and friends are welcome to be seated in the waiting area (please see COVID protocols above for guests).

Correction Policy

We want our clients to be happy and satisfied with their services.  If you are ever dissatisfied with any service in the salon we will gladly make the corrections necessary to exceed your expectations within 7 days of the original service. If you are unhappy with your service, please let us know within the 7 day period so we can make it right!  Our primary objective is to ensure each service and visit meets your satisfaction.

Promotions and Discounts

Discount Programs, Promotional Certificates/Contests, Coupons, Savings Vouchers, and Website Specials etc., cannot be used in conjunction with each other or for prior purchases or services rendered. A certificate, coupon, voucher etc., must be presented before the expiration date. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen certificates, coupons, etc.

We take our services rendered very seriously. Therefore we expect policies and procedures to be regarded in the same manner. All information is held in strict confidence.
