CHANGING YOUR APPOINTMENT
A minimum of 24 hrs is required to reschedule or cancel a booked appt without penalty. This is also as a curtesy to Melody. Being a by appt only spa, if a short notice is given, it negatively affects her business and livelihood. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated!
If you know you will be more than 5 minutes late, please text or call before scheduled appointment time. If you arrive 15 minutes after your scheduled appt time without a notice ahead of scheduled appt time, there will be a late charge of $25. If Melody cannot accommodate the late arrival due to another appt after you, there will be a forfeit of the appt and a reschedule at that time in order to prevent the charge of the scheduled service.
Gratuity is not added to any services.
Cash, check, and Venmo are preferred. Cards are accepted through Square.
CANCELLATION + NO SHOW
If you cancel under 24 hours of your appt, you will be charged 50% of your service as a cancellation fee. If you cancel the day of your appointment, you will be charged 100%.
Because Melody Sopa Artistry is in a private studio, not a busy salon environment, only the individual receiving the scheduled service is able to be in the treatment room. If you need to bring a guest, please inform Melody beforehand. They are welcome to relax in the waiting area or elsewhere.
SICKNESS OR FAMILY EMERGENCY
For your safety, staff and other clients, if you or another person in your household has an infectious or contagious illness, please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment. More than 48 hours is preferred. If it is assumed you are currently sick, your appt may be cut short or cancelled and rescheduled for when you are healthy again.
***You will be responsible for payment your appt if sent home sick.
* How should I prepare before coming in?
Most importantly, you need a minimum of 4 weeks of outgrowth for a successful wax. No tanning 24 hours beforehand, which includes self tanner. Give yourself an exfoliation in the area about 24 hours before the service. For more sensitive areas, avoid alcohol and caffeine at least 12 hours before.
* What should I expect after?
Everyone’s reactions are different. That said, most have little to no irritation or discomfort immediately after the wax. Some will stay a bit pink for a day or two, depending on your skin sensitivity. You’ll want to avoid the following for the first 12-24 hours…
NO tanning, creams or lotions, excessive sweating, and NO hot tubs or pools.
* What advice do you have?
Avoid the week before and after your menstrual cycle; this is the time when you are most sensitive. Take ibuprofen about an hour before your wax, as this will minimize pain. Keep in mind that waxing gets easier with time. Every time you wax, your hair will grow back finer and more sparse. Please let me know if you are prone to ingrown hairs, so I can assist you further!
* How often do I need to wax?
Waxing is according to each client’s hair growth stages, so each person is different! The more consistent you are with getting waxed, the less often you will need to come in, as you will have less and less hair.
