CANCELLATIONS/NO SHOWS/ DOWNGRADE SERVICES

At Meraki Spa we have a strict 6 hour cancellation and downgrade service policy in order to accommodate high demand of appointments. This policy applies across the board whether booked in person, on the phone, via email or online booking. For any reason there is a missed appointment, more than 15 minutes late, downgrade in service, you will still be responsible for the full-service fee of your originally scheduled appointment. Same-day bookings with less than 12 hours notice will not be downgraded and the full value at time of booking is payable. No refunds will be given to cancelled or rescheduled bookings.

We require a credit card to secure all appointments over the phone and through our online booking system. No exceptions. Meraki Spa gift certificates can not be used to secure appointments. Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, we miss the opportunity to fill that appointment time and clients on our waiting list miss the opportunity to receive services they need. We ask that all new and current guests supply a credit card to have on file. All cards on file are added to the system via a secure electronic process that ensures the information is encrypted and remains secure. In the event that we do not receive the required notice for adjustments and cancellations the following fees will be applied to your card or alternatively billed out to you.

Outside this period there will be a charge of our normal fee, please refer to our price list.

NAIL CARE AFTER SERVICES


In an effort to maintain a healthy environment, we ask that if you are sick (which includes a cold, a fever, the flu, etc.) or have the onset of symptoms of an illness that you reschedule your appointment. If you arrive for your appointment with visible symptoms of an illness, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment and charged 50% of your original service to reschedule. This is for your well being as well as the health of our employees and other clients. Receiving a service  when you are sick is not advised. While in the early and acute stages of a cold, the flu or other illness, a manicure or pedicure service can accelerate the onset of the infection and intensify its severity (via additional circulation of blood & lymph). Please wait until you have been well for at least a week before getting your service. If you do need to cancel your appointment, please call us 6 Hours before your scheduled appointment so you are not charged half the service amount and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling better.

SICK POLICY


When making any appointments or before your service, please let us know if you are pregnant, have any health conditions, ingrown toenails, special needs (e.g. allergies or injuries). This will help customize your service to ensure the highest satisfaction and benefits.

Please refrain from the use of cell phones, and turn the ringer to silent or vibrate prior to entering the salon.  We want you to sit back, relax and enjoy your experience to the fullest while allowing others to do the same.

SALON ETIQUETTE


We have the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime. This includes but limited to the usage of drugs, alcohol, sexual comments/remarks or any behavior that we feel is inappropriate.
