Salon Etiquette

At Tannorah, we are committed to creating a personalised experience, and as such, we request that all clients consider the below points in our simple Tannorah Salon Etiquette Guide. Following these helpful tips will enable Tannorah to provide an optimum service for each and every client.

When should I book my appointment & Why are appointments necessary?

Tannorah doesn’t like letting people down…it makes us feel bad, so if you can book a good 2 weeks in advance, hopefully you won’t be disappointed. However, we do recommend that you make your next appointment on completion of your treatment.

Please arrive on time for your appointment as we may require you to fill in forms, especially for your first visit. Please advise us of any medical conditions or medications that you are taking. Some treatments require extra caution with certain medical conditions.

When should I arrive?

Please arrive on time! If it is your first appointment add a 10-15 minutes FREE Consultation Appointment onto to your chosen Treatment. This time may be spent completing all the required consent forms for the service that you will be receiving and discussing how we will work together to achieve the desired result. We like this process not to be rushed so that you feel comfortable and relaxed from the beginning on the appointment.

Time to Unwind

At Tannorah we have realised that arriving on time, makes for a much more relaxing treatment.

Appointment Times

Arriving on time will ensure you receive the full service you have booked in for. If you are running late, please let us know – we will do everything we can to accommodate you, however, please keep in mind that we may have to reschedule your appointment, or if you are late, please note that your treatment time may be shortened to ensure that all treatments for clients for the rest of the day run on time.

We realise that you may sometimes struggle to make your exact appointment time. We will always endeavour to accommodate late appointments but may have to reduce the treatment time slightly to be on time for our next client. Although we would always appreciate 24 hours notice for cancellations, please let us know even at short notice if you cannot make your appointment so we can offer it to a client waiting on our cancellation list.
