  • Child Safety Policy Open or Close

    Child Safety Policy

    We love children, as most of us have children of our own but we cannot assure their safety in the salon, Due to the use of hot tools, sharp tools, and chemicals on the salon floor, we ask that NO children be present on the salon floor when not receiving a service. This includes in strollers, empty salon chairs, or on your lap.

    We also do not want to compromise the relaxation and salon experience of our guests. Children are only permitted in the salon area when having a service. Children 12 yrs old and younger need to be with their guardian when receiving a service, Guardians are not allowed to leave their child in the care of a stylist or other staff member. 

    For safety reasons and insurance purposes, no child under the age of 12 may accompany you while you are having a service. We do not have the facilities nor the room to care for children.

  • Skin Testing and Allergies Test Open or Close

    Skin Testing and Allergies Test  

    We have a DUTY OF CARE to make sure that you are protected. 

    The best way of ensuring that you are allergy free when it comes to hair colouring, is for you to come into our salon 48 hours or more before the application of hair dye. Here you can have specific skin test done with the product we intend to use. This is without a doubt the safest and most efficient way of detecting any allergies that may cause damage to your skin!

  • Skin Testing Disclaimer Open or Close

    Skin testing disclaimer

    Our team of professional hair stylists advise a skin test before we colour your hair.  If you are adamant that you would not like a skin test, however, we will ask you to sign a disclaimer.  This will acknowledge that you waive any responsibility for any reaction that you may experience as a result of the colour application.

    Please note there is no skin test for sensitivity to bleach that we can perform.

    Each individual has a different sensitivity or tolerance to scalp bleaching. Different factors such as skin type (dry/oily etc), room temperature and temperature of the persons scalp all play a part in how bleach works.

    It is completely normal to feel an itching or tingling sensation, even a little heat when bleach is first applied to your scalp so try not to be too alarmed. If you feel any MAJOR discomfort during the bleaching process however, please inform your stylist IMMEDIATELY.

We hope that you understand and appreciate our salon policies and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Kindest regards
The Hair Boutique
