Any medical information we hold will only be used by Rare Beauty salon staff in connection with your appointment and will be stored in a locked client card box which is kept stored away from the general public at all times. The correct medical information is necessary for us to carry out your treatment safety. We will never pass this information on to any third party apart from Schedul which is our online booking system which is GDPR complaint and password protected. From time to time we would like to contact/ send you details of offers that we run or events we hold. This is done through Mail chimp, if you are receiving these you have at some point opted in for this service but can unsubscribe at any point.
We will also send appointment reminders via text, email and post-appointment feedback emails.

Arrivals & Cancellations
Please arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to your appointment to allow time to relax and complete a consultation form.
Late arrivals regrettably result in shortened treatment time, charged at full rate.
Credit card details may be requested to secure your appointment and a deposit may be charged for appointments over half an hour long.
Clients wishing to change or cancel an appointment are asked to provide twenty-four hours notice, or the full cost of the appointment may be chargeable. Please understand that we may have turned someone away for that slot that we have kept for you and last minute cancellations and ‘no shows’ can be very damaging to a small independent business like ours.
Treatments may not be reduced on the day as your therapist’s time has been reserved especially for you.
We regret that due to health and safety, we are unable to have children in the salon during treatment times unless pre-arranged with a senior member of staff. We understand that sometimes leaving your little one at home might be difficult so please let us know in advance of your treatment that this may be the case. We will try to accommodate you as far as possible but we have other clients in the salon whom we need to consider. There are certain treatments that unfortunately we need to be quite strict about children in the salon as it may be unsafe.
As an insurance requirement for all tinting, eyelash extensions, laser treatment and medical treatments we are required to do a patch test 24 to 48 hours (1 week for medical treatments) before your appointment time. If you do not make provision for the patch test before your appointment we do reserve the right to cancel your appointment for your safety.
Should you be unhappy with your visit to Rare for whatever reason, please allow us the opportunity to rectify any unhappiness caused by contacting us at the salon and speaking to a senior member of staff. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can email the salon directly on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will address your concerns as soon as we are able.
We respectfully request that all mobile telephones are switched off whilst you are in the salon as they can be quite disruptive to other clients enjoying treatments.
During busy periods, deposits may be taken for treatments to secure booking times, however these are non refundable and non transferable.
