Policies & Guidelines
Booking an APPOINTMENT or a CLASS with us requires a NON REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE OF 50% to reserve YOUR place on our calendar. During this time, no one else can take your spot so we really rely on your commitment. It indicates to us, that you UNDERSTAND the process that we have outlined on our PLAN AHEAD, TIMING & AFTERCARE pages, and you are committed to keeping our appointment or class that you have scheduled with us.
WHY do we require more than a traditional salon? Because all of our clients need a week or two to prepare and plan for downtime. While the fee is non-refundable, it is transerferable should an extremem emergeny arise. Scroll down for more info!

CANCELLATIONS, NO SHOWS & LAST MINUTE CHANGES
IN AN ATTEMPT TO KEEP OUR SCHEDULE FLOWING HARMONIOUSLY, A NON-REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE of 50% is built into the procedure price. This is similar to a restocking fee and helps protect the efforts of the company when reserving our time for your procedure.
NO SHOWS & CANCELLATIONS WITH LESS THAN 5 DAYS NOTICE . . . . . . . . . . . . . 100% OF THE FEE - IS FORFEITED
IF YOUR BOOKING FEE IS FORFEITED, WE CAN START OVER BY BOOKING A NEW PROCEDURE WITH A NEW BOOKING FEE.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT TRUE EMERGENCIES CAN HAPPEN, SO IF YOU CAN SUBMIT PROOF OF A LIFE ALTERING EVENT OR EXTREME ILLNESS, YOUR BOOKING FEE WILL NOT BE FORFEITED AND WE WILL BE HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOU!
IF YOU ARE CONTAGIOUS ILLNESS OR ARE RUNNING A FEVER, PLEASE CALL TO INFORM US AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT FUTURE ARRANGEMENTS.
APPOINTMENTS & CLASSES:
APPOINTMENTS including changes, should be initiated by the client or student here on this website. This automated system ensures that bookings are created according to your schedule and there are no mistakes on our end.
CLASSES: SEE TRAINING PAGE
A 5 DAY NOTICE OF CANCELLATION is required to move your appointment. NO EXCEPTIONS. If a 5 day notice is not given, your booking fee will be forfeited due to the loss of an appointment and the fact that it is virtually impossible to fill and allow another client time to prepare.
If you are on antibiotics, you should postpone your appointment for a couple of weeks to allow the medication to leave your system. Otherwise, there is a possibility that the treatment will not heal with optimal results. The medication is fighting to rid your body of a bug... and it may see the pigment as a potential threat, even though it's not.
WHEN CHOOSING A PROCEDURE
You do NOT have to predetermine which style of work you need. When you arrive, we will start paperwork and the numbing process. Approximately 30 minutes later we will discuss your options and your input will also be taken into consideration. Once we reach a decision, the procedure will begin.
Appointments may be transferred to a new date.
A five (5) day notice is required to allow time to prepare for the person filling your spot.
You may change your appointment as often as you need to without informing our office.
Do this by searching your email for your last appointment notification. There you will find a link to reset your appointment. As always, if you need help, please contact us through our website messaging system.
We invite you to read over the information links on this page to make sure you are a candidate for the services we offer.
Booking any cosmetic procedure should NOT be taken lightly. This process requires thought and planning because it leans more toward surgery than a normal cosmetic procedure like hair, nails or lashes.
BY BOOKING THIS APPOINTMENT, YOU AGREE WITH OUR OUR "LESS IS BEST" CONCEPT AND ARE WILLING TO RETURN FOR SUBSEQUENT FOLLOWUP SESSIONS TO COMPLETE THE WORK AND YOU UNDERSTAND OUR RECOMMENDATIONS AND POLICIES BELOW.
We look forward to working with people who understand and agree with our LESS IS MORE approach. This means less work is done upfront to give us the opportunity to evaluate how things settle in on a small scale, then build toward your desired result over a period of a few months in subsequent perfecting sessions.
So don't be surprised if your work is too light. This is the case for most people.... This means almost no one is left with work that is too dark. Doing this allows us to get "closer to perfection" without crossing that line of regret! And please realize, that while YOU ARE IN GREAT HANDS HERE, absolute perfection does not exist. There will always be something to work on. You just have to be realistic about your expectations and choose not to be radical in your idea of perfection. Working in SKIN can be problematic at times, and your patience is required in order to achieve optimal (not perfect) results.
Appointments are set for a normal allotted amount of time. We allow appointments to run one hour over the allotted time because we understand this is your face - and we want things to be as perfect as you do. However, if the appointment runs longer than one hour over the appiontment will be called to an end. If time allows, extra time beyond , will be billed at an additional $250 per hour.
IN THE EVENT OF A SCHEDULING EMERGENCY:
THE FASTEST WAY TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN AN EMERGENCY ON OUR END
is to move your appointment to our next available opening. This move will trigger a NEW confirmation to alert you that there has been a change in the schedule. You will be notified of the change by TEXT AND EMAIL
IF ACCEPTABLE, no further contact is necessary.
IF UNACCEPTABLE, you may reset your appointment from the confirmation notice.
If you need help, or more information, please text us at: 713-443-8999
WHEN YOU BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO TRAVEL TO HOUSTON, it is clearly a greater risk if either of us encounter any unforeseen circumstances, including INCLEMENT WEATHER, ILLNESS, ACCIDENTS. We will do everything within our power to avoid such a situation. However, if anything at all, prevents us from performing your procedure, we will gladly reset your appointment , however we shall assume no financial responsibility for the appointment, travelers flight, food, hotel, car rental, insurances. NO EXCEPTIONS - So we highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover potential losses.
PRE-CARE & AFTERCARE
is required (Read about taking Arnica Montana before your procedure date.)
OTHER SUGGESTED READING:
There are things that you can read/do to help maximize your experience. And there are things that will sabotage it as well... So please PLAN to PLAN! There are links showing the most important pages to read. I know there is a lot of information to absorb, but it's worth the effort as there are inherent risks possible with every procedure... and this holds true with every artist.
ARTISTRY is our strength! But even though our success rate is extremely high, but we still cannot completely control our canvas (your skin) . Nothing is ever certain in a biological system, so you should plan on multiple treatments to build upon the work.
What can happen? Pigment rejection, allergic reactions and hyperpigmentation and keloid scarring may still occur, even after testing. However, because of conservative approach, we are able to greatly minimize such risks so that adjustments are easy to make.
If you have any questions, please be sure to contact us so we can help. We are looking forward to working with people who embrace our process and we are looking forward to providing you the highest care possible and will do so in a clean and friendly environment!
If you feel that your initial treatment did not deliver satisfactory results, please remember that all skin is unique and holds color differently. For this reason, we apply our first session on the lighter side to test for color compatibility, before packing in too much color. Try to be patient with the process and schedule your next visit.
Adjustments will be made at your followup session, not before. THIS IS DONE FOR YOUR ULTIMATE SATISFACTION and takes patience on your part. If you would prefer the color to be too dark rather than too light, we may not be the right fit for you, as we are also concerned with our reputation as well.
There is currently NO TAX on services in the state of Texas.
TRUE EMERGENCY SITUATIONS:
EXCEPTIONS: IF A TRUE EMERGENCY SITUATION OCCURS, WE WILL TRY TO WORK WITH YOU TO RESET YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH NO PENALTY. WE DO UNDERSTAND WHEN UNFORESEEN MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, CAR ACCIDENTS, OR A DEATH IN IN THE FAMILY MAY OCCUR AND WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP IN UNPREVENTABLE CIRCUMSTANCES.
In these cases, the missed appointment mau be excused if proof of the event can be sent to our office phone.
PLEASE TEXT THE INFORMATION TO: 713-340-4422 for evaluation.
Poor planning does not count. Our booking policies are geared toward preventing last minute cancellations or postponements. So if you forgot your appointment, or your hair appointment is running late, etc... your booking fee will be forfeited.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND UNDERSTANDING.
