Availability is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, Tuesday through Saturday.
Online scheduling is preferred! As a solo practitioner without reception staff, online appointment scheduling simplifies things for me and my clients. It takes the back and forth out of scheduling, and you don’t have to wait for a call back.
Voicemails and Emails are returned during business hours/days (Tuesday through Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm). Please allow up to 3 business days to return a call. Have a question prior to scheduling? Email email@example.com for a faster response.
To ensure a great experience for each of my clients I ask that the following studio etiquette and policies be observed.
Placing a credit card on file is required in order to hold an appointment. Your appointments are very important to Skin by Tara and are reserved especially for you. Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, I respectfully request the following policies to be followed. Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, I miss the opportunity to fill that appointment time and other clients miss the opportunity to receive services. The appointment system will send out an email to your provided email address and a text reminder to your provided phone number (if you agreed to SMS communications) to give you ample time to change your appointment. Email and text reminders are simply a courtesy and not a fail-safe, and in the event that you do not receive them, it is still your responsibility to track and remember your appointments.
Skin Care & Waxing Services:
1. Notification given at least 24 hours prior to your appointment will receive no charges.
2. Notification given less than 24 hours prior to appointment time, or failure to arrive to your appointment without notice, will result in a 100% charge of the service scheduled.
3. Clients who habitually miss or reschedule appointments without proper notice may be required to prepay for future services in order to schedule an appointment. Prepaid services are not refundable in the event that the appointment is missed or 24hrs notice is not given.
Permanent Cosmetics Services:
Please understand that Permanent Makeup procedures are large blocks of scheduled time, and additional notice is respectfully requested.
1. Notification given less than 48 hours prior to appointment time will result in a loss of your appointment “booking fee” for New Procedure appointments. The booking fee will not be credited towards your rescheduled service, and another booking fee will be required to hold your new appointment time.
2. Failure to show up for your appointment with no notification will result in the loss of your appointment booking fee, plus require 50% of the procedure price to be Prepaid in order to schedule a future appointment.
3. ‘First Touch-Up’ appointments – Notification given less than 48hrs prior to appointment time, or failure to arrive to your appointment without notice, will result in a $50.00 charge to be paid in order to schedule a future appointment.
Thank you for your understanding.
