Other Important Information
Here, we placed other important information that can be useful. First of all, the Online Check-in feature is not opened round the clock. It is only available during the salon working hours and opens after the five minutes the salon starts to work. It is made to allow people who wait from the early morning to check-in first. The Online Check-in service closes 30 minutes before the salon’s closing time. Sometimes, the salon has a lot of clients and the Estimated Waiting Time is very long. In such cases, Online Check-in becomes temporarily unavailable.
If you face any problem or question, you can always connect the salon’s support team. Here are the contacts:
- Phone number: 1-800-473-2825;
- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do not forget that the waiting time is just an estimated parameter. Sometimes, the master becomes free earlier. So, our advice is to come to the salon 10-15 minutes earlier than your appointed time.
