Stewart Beauty & Barber Boutique Salon & Spa 24 hour Cancellation Policy
Because we are a small, locally owned salon & spa, cancellations affect us greatly. Our service providers and Salon & Spa take great pride in offering exceptional service to our guests. Our staff regularly attends continuing education classes as well as at least 2 private educational classes “in house” a year. We strive to offer a professional, positive and progressive environment for our staff and guests alike. When you cancel last minute and especially “no show” it is incredibly rude to our staff and other guests on our waiting list. Please inform us immediately if you need to cancel or reschedule for any reason. There are 2 easy ways to get a hold of us if you need to cancel for any reason, call 614-686-4247 or email us at StewartBoutiqueReception@gmail.com. The best way to cancel is using the Fresha app, where you booked your appointment. You can even cancel from the confirmation email you sent.
We understand that sometimes you need to change your schedule. We kindly ask that you give us a 24 hour notice if you must cancel an appointment. You must provide a valid credit card to schedule appointments at Shine. Cancellations made less than 12 hours in advance will be charged $25—$50 for the time of services booked. Any “no call, no shows” will be charged 100% of the services booked. If you “no call, no show” any appointment for any reason you will have to secure a future appointment with a non-refundable deposit (only non-refundable if you do not cancel within 24 hours or “no show”). If a habit or trend of cancelling or “no-show” is seen, customers will not be allowed to schedule atStewart Beauty & Barber Boutique. Tardiness by 15 minutes or more is considered a “no show”. By scheduling with us you agree to the above terms. *We recommend that you schedule your next appointment prior to leaving the salon & spa to ensure you have the most desirable appointment time.
CHILD SAFETY POLICY
We write this new policy with the utmost respect to the parents in our salon. Over half of our staff are parents themselves and understand that this can be a sensitive issue. Moving forward, we will be implementing this new policy. We understand how challenging it is finding time for yourself. We also understand that your “me time” does not always align with your hair & spa appointments. However our policy strictly prohibits unsupervised children in the salon & spa. In the event you must bring a young child into the salon, please provide proper supervision for them in the form of an additional caretaker. Unfortunately the salon cannot provide childcare services.
Also, young children in carriers/ strollers may not be placed near the service areas or held in the lap unless they are receiving salon & spa services There will be no running, screaming, or walking around the salon stations as there are cords you can trip on. If you bring a tablet for your children, please also have headphones available as not to distract other guests. Please remember this is a public space where people come (and pay) to relax. Children under 12 must sit on their bottoms and not spin or pump the salon chairs. We kindly request ONLY those receiving services be present in the service areas. Children 13 and older capable of sitting quietly and unsupervised, may wait in the provided seating area. If you cannot comply with this policy you may be asked to reschedule.
While this policy helps ensure that all guests enjoy a relaxing salon experience, it was created with your child’s safety in mind. Our salon is not child proof. Sharp implements, glass, hot styling tools, chemicals and a busy, congested area make for a potentially dangerous environment for young children. We cannot be held responsible for injuries in our salon as a result of unsupervised children. You will be financially responsible for ANY items and/or property damaged by children attending with you. Please understand that our concern is the safety of your child. We write this notice without the intent of offending and hope that you will aid us in keeping our salon a safe environment. Please contact the owner if you have concerns or questions about this policy.
Unfortunately, Ohio State laws do not allow any pets (unless certified service dogs) in salons or spas during business hours.
SALON & SPA ETIQUETTE
We have a strict “no judgement policy” for our guests. Our guests come from all walks of life and are here to relax and be taken care of regardless of social stature. Please be courteous and practice our salon rule of “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.” As a courtesy to our guest trying to relax, please silence cell phones and keep your voice down when taking calls. Please leave all valuables at home. Whether you are receiving a massage, facial, or nail care services, there is an element of massage involved in every service SHINE provides.
In order to safeguard your valuables from product exposure or loss, we ask that you do not bring your valuables to your spa services(s). We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Please be aware in the unfortunate event you are late, we cannot guarantee that your services will be performed that day or performed in full. It may also result in an incomplete service and affect the quality of your service. Tardiness more than 15 minutes will be considered a “no show”. Please refer to our cancelation policy.
