Reservations and Deposits 
To reserve your date whether for a wedding or other event a non-refundable and transferable deposit is required. When booking, without this deposit your date will not be reserved, unless otherwise agreed by Chelsey Leigh in writing. See details on the Price List.

Booking confirmations will only be sent to the person making the booking who will be presumed to be the Client unless otherwise agreed. This confirmation will be sent once the deposit and signed booking form have been received by Chelsey Leigh. Once booking confirmation has been issued to you the date for your event is secure.

After the deposit has been paid, the numbers of persons and treatments have been confirmed these may only be increased or amended with the agreement of Chelsey Leigh. Any increase in fee will have to take account of the change in the number of people and the amount of work involved and additional time and Artists required to provide the service agreed.

 If the number of persons is reduced the final fee will be based on the numbers agreed at the time the deposit was paid. 

 

The deposit will be deducted from the final balance. The final balance must be received no later than 6 weeks before the wedding day. 

 

Payment of the deposit confirms that you agree to the full terms and conditions for the services provided by Chelsey Leigh and her Artists.

It is the Client’s responsibly to inform Chelsey Leigh at the time of the booking or, if later, as soon as it is known that any person who is to receive services from Chelsey Leigh has allergies or skin sensitivities or if they may be affected, in any way, by the use of hair or make-up tools or products. If so, a Design Consultation is highly recommended.

 

It is therefore recommended that the Client makes appropriate enquiries of the members of the wedding party who are to receive services from Chelsey Leigh.

The Design Appointment is an appointment which all brides are required to have as a trial of their hair and makeup appearance so they know exactly how they will look on their special day and that together we are able to make any changes and avoid any adverse impact on the arrangements and timetable on the morning of their wedding

Clients are asked to ensure that all persons receiving services do not sit children/babies on their lap whilst having their hair styled or make-up applied.

Punctuality and Time Delays  

                                                                                                         

On the wedding day or day of your event, time is very important to ensure that everyone is ready when necessary. Chelsey Leigh will not be responsible for any delays caused by events beyond their control.

Chelsey Leigh will agree a programme of timings with you to meet the needs of all your people. Clients are asked to ensure that every member of their party who is to receive a 
service from Chelsey Leigh is aware of these timings on the day and that they continue to be available. 

Please ensure that bridesmaids and any other person requiring make-up/hair services are 100% confirmed in order to avoid any disappointment.

To ensure efficient and punctual service also ensure, that prior to having make-up applied or hair styled members of the party do not leave the chair while the Artists are working.

It is also of great importance to ensure that hair is clean, completely dry, and free from products. It is of great assistance if hair is washed the night before, heavy conditioners are not applied. Please note that non- straightening of hair is advised, unless previously agreed at a Design Consultation Appointment.

No refund or compensation will be given in the event of delays caused by or relating to any of the above factors or due to other wedding vendors, guests, or members of the bridal party.
