Between our salons, we typically see over 500 clients per week! We began operating in 2017 and as time has gone on, we’ve gotten to know more and more about our clients needs and wants. We’ve taken that feedback and information and created the below guides to assist with everything from choosing a design, to after-care and recommended rebooking times to allow you to make the most out of every experience.

Something that is super important to us as a brand is making sure that every aspect of our clients’ experience is easy and accessible. We hope these thorough and visual guides assist with that!

It is however transferable if you book the same treatment and the same service with the same technician.
