Over the years our team have encountered many frequently asked questions from our clients which we have published here for your next visit to the Salon.
We are delighted that you want to book an appointment at TIME to be ME. To ensure you get the most from your appointment please be aware of the following:
We have a highly trained team of therapists who are continually developing and learning new skills. All staff are qualified to deliver specified treatments.
We do offer a tiered pricing structure which reflects the industry experience that our therapists have. We have done this to enable you to have a choice in how much you pay for certain treatments. If you are unsure about who to book with please give our reception team a call and they will be happy to help you.
We implement an annual price increase on the 1st April each year
You can book appointments in a number of ways:
We would encourage you to book your appointment 5 days in advance of the date you are looking for. We are a busy salon and many of our therapists are booked several weeks in advance.
However, we may be able to accommodate a booking for treatment on the same day, you can check availability either on our App or the website. Our reception team are great at finding slots so do give them a call.
We require a deposit for any treatment costing over £30. This secures that you will have the treatment with a therapist of your choice.
We require a 50% deposit for group bookings due to the amount of time we allocate for them.
Yes, through Treat Card Points. There is more information available about our loyalty scheme here
Please give us as much notice as possible if you have to cancel your appointment so that we can offer this time to other clients.
We require a full 24 hours notice of cancellation. We do send out a reminder text message ahead of your appointment.
If it is less than 24 hours we require a payment of 50% of the treatment cost. We will allow you to rebook within 3 days based on you paying 100% of the value of the treatment.
Failure to turn up for an appointment will require payment for your treatment in full. Failure to show means we are unable to reallocate this time to a paying client.
For online bookings please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of booking; we will require a small deposit payment to secure any treatment.
We love having groups come to us to enjoy some time together with friends and family. Whether this is coming as a couple, or a larger group. You can book for multiple people online but they will have to all be booked as separate individuals. To enable us to cater for groups we would really appreciate you sending us an email with the following:
Please note a group deposit will need to be taken to confirm the booking.
Our App can be downloaded for both Apple and Android phones.
You will see our Special Offers on the front page of the App as soon as they are launched.
The App enables you to see your booking history, making it easier to rebook your favourite treatments with your preferred therapist.
You can book at any time 24/ 7 from anywhere, even if you remember as you get into bed that you have forgotten to book your appointment, if you are in the office and don’t want to share with everyone you are in need of a wax, it’s so easy!
Our App shows you how many Treat Card points you have available too.
There is more information about our App here.

We have a specially created selection of Mini Me treatments for the under 13s. We are happy to do these treatments on children aged 3 or above, subject to a parent / guardian being with the child.
We do offer other treatments such as gel nails, waxing, spray tans, makeup or facials for those aged 13 – 16 with parental / guardian permission. We do require the child to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for their first appointment. This enables us to check that we have all of the necessary information to proceed with a treatment.
We restrict this to 6 years and above and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to complete the necessary legal forms.
Please call us if you are unsure.

We are happy for you to bring babies / small children with you for short appointments, however they will have to be with you during your treatment. We do, however, ask that you are able to occupy them to make sure we keep a quiet atmosphere for other clients to enjoy their treatments.
