THIRD PARTY OR "SURPRISE" RESERVATIONS:
If you wish to make a reservation for a guest using your credit card to secure the reservation AND your guest(s) will be paying for their services independently at checkout using a form of payment which belongs to them, you do not need to do anything further than make the reservation. If, however, you wish to use your credit card to pay for your guest(s) services you must provide us written authorization in the form of a credit card receipt physically signed by you (the cardholder), or electronically authorized by the cardholder by completing our online Payment Gurantee Form or Express Checkout Form. You also have the option of purchasing an Instant e-Gift Certificate for the amount of the services and any additional products or gratuities that you may wish your payment to cover. Once purchased, this electronically secured e-Gift Certificate is recorded and available to be used for payment for services for you or your guest(s) as needed. You may simply email your guest(s) the purchased e-Gift Certificate using the email option during your purchase or provide your guest(s) with you unique e-Gift Certificate number for their use upon checkout as a form of payment. Please note that we will not be able to use a third-person credit card as a form of payment for any appointment upon checkout by your guest(s) if this procedure is not followed. Third-Party or "Surprise" Reservations have the same cancellation policy as our Group, Multiple-Service or Salon & Spa Package Reservations so please ensure that your guest is aware of these policies prior to scheduling a reservation for them.
It is our goal to ensure that you are charged a reasonable & fair price for services in order to foster a long-term relationship with you. Our menu prices are posted as a guideline for standard services but will vary based on the experience level of the associate providing the service. Our online-booking system reflects the final price of a service prior to the confirmation of a reservation and is based on the associate selected and this pricing notice is also included in our email confirmation sent upon completion of a reservation. It is important to note that our associates should never add on service items or substitute a service without discussion and prior consent by you. If you ever have a question, we encourage you to discuss the service and pricing associated with your service with any of our associates prior to receiving the service. In fact, this is a mandatory requirement for our associates with respect to a first-time client or a first-time service for an existing client by the use of a consultation form which you are asked to review and sign.
All service tickets will include a 3.5% surcharge to our published or quoted retail product or service pricing to cover the increased costs associated with protective equipment and enhanced sanitization for the increased safety requirements for our guests and staff as well as the use of the amenities at our facility. Gift Cards, e-Gift Certificates, Cash payments or Venmo Bank-Bank transfers will not incur an amenities fee.
SERVICE PROFESSIONAL SUBSTITUTIONS:
While we endeavor to assign your preferred, favorite or selected service professional for services, there are times when staff schedule changes may require us to substitute another equally certified, experienced or licensed service professional in order to meet our staff schedule obligations. While these substitutions are rare on our salon operations, they are more prevalent for our spa operations where techniques & modalities generally follow our established training protocols. Should you prefer not to accept service professional substitutions simply select your service and lock it to your preferred service professional using the option to do so through our online booking system or by informing a member of our guest service team during the booking process. Unless you specifically note your request during the booking process, we reserve the right to make changes as and when required in order to meet our staffing and scheduling obligations.
Retail product returns are brand-specific and are generally limited to within 30 days for unopened and unused products with a 20% re-stocking fee, however please contact us if you're unsure about a refund or credit for purchased products. Eminence, Kérastase, cosmetic products and any product which may has been opened for use is not refundable.
DIVINE DESIGNS SALON & SPA GIFT CARD PURCHASES:
For privacy reasons, please note that any inquiries for information regarding Divine Designs Salon & Spa gift cards can only be made by the verified purchaser of the card and only via email or written request with proof of purchase. While we are very sympathetic to any customer’s loss of a prepaid Gift Card, new laws were passed by the State of Florida which govern the use of gift cards and make it impossible for us to replace a card which is lost or stolen since the new rules promulgated by the State prohibit us from “expiring” the gift card for any reason. Therefore, Divine Designs Salon & Spa Gift Cards, once purchased, are not refundable even if they are lost or stolen and we recommend the use of our Electronic Gift Certificates which may help avoid lost or stolen issues that primarily affect physical Gift Cards. We apologize in advance for this policy but it is one that is necessary since a possessor of a card is the final arbiter of any usage or dispute.
CHILDREN IN SALON OR SPA:
For safety reasons, we request that our guests do not have children accompany them to an appointment unless they are scheduled for services concurrently with a parent or guardian. Additionally, children under the age of 15 must also be physically supervised at all times by the accompanying parent or guardian during their visit with us. Spa parties for children cannot occur on a premium weekend day (Friday-Sunday) and must also meet certain service restrictions and limitations: Children under the age of 13 cannot receive massage services unless an adult or guardian is present and receiving a duplicate service in our dual-bed suite with them or is present during the entire service. Children under the age of 13 cannot receive facial services unless and adult or guardian is present during the entire service. Children must be at least 50” in height in order to fully utilize our Cleo® Pedicure Massage Chairs and nail services for children exclude cuticle clipping or cutting. We require the name and contact information of the adult parent or guardian that is designated as such in advance of this reservation as well as the completion of our Minor Release Form which is renewable once every calendar year. If this link is non-functional, it is accessible directly from our website under the FORMS tab. This minor release must be provided upon check in of any minor guests for services or you may complete and either FAX (888-220-0835) or email the completed form back to us prior to the date of your scheduled reservation.
NO CELL PHONES PLEASE:
We ask that you please observe our no cell phone policy. We request that you turn off all cell phones before entering our salon or spa area. All emergency calls can be directed through our front desk. Please understand this is for the comfort of our all of our guests and a violation of this policy may result in a non-refundable cancellation of any services scheduled for your visit.
