We recommend all clients schedule their appointments at the beginning of the week if they want an appointment on a week day, 1 – 2 weeks in advance for Friday or Saturday. We highly recommend pre-booking appointments before leaving the salon if you see a specific service provider. Walk-ins are permitted if time is available.
