Terms + Conditions


Patch Tests:

We highly recommend a patch test is carried out before all colour services. A patch test is when we apply a small amount of colour, behind your ear, and leave it to sit for 24 hours to check for any reactions. We will not colour your hair if you show any signs of irritation and take no responsibility for any reactions if you choose not to complete a patch test, or are untruthful about the results.


Cancellations, Re Scheduling and No Shows

We are human and are reasonable but please remember that this is our lively hood. We are a small company that cannot sustain the loss of hours of income/productivity. Bearing that in mind, please read our cancelation policies:

Cancellation Policy

When booking an appointment over the phone, email, online booking, facebook or in person, you are entering a verbal contract that you will turn up at that time to have that service completed. By doing so Salem Hair Co. is reserving that time for your appointment, so please give at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. This allows an opportunity for the appointment to be taken by another client.

'No Showing' and last minute cancellations

‘No Show’ clients will not be tolerated.

If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, or do not show up to your appointment it will be at your Stylist/Salem Hair co.'s discretion as to whether you will be able to book in again. If you are rebooked we will require an email address and a deposit to hold your appointment.

In this follow up situation, you will be sent an email reminder 48 hours before your appointment as well as a text reminder the morning before. If you do not confirm via email, text or phone call 12 hours before your appointment, we reserve the right to cancel your booking.

If a second appointment is cancelled within 24 hours or you ‘No Show’ a second time you can expect an invoice for the full amount of the service you had booked for or we may choose not to take appointments from you in the future.

Reminder Messages

Reminder texts are sent at 9am the day before an appointment. Do not call the number the text is sent from, this is a service provider and only text messages are passed on to Salem Hair Co. Please respond via text or call 049745637.

Alternatively if you can't make it you can email contact@salem.co.nz, but please note we cannot reschedule appointments or make new appointments via email.

Because these messages are sent from a service provider we take no responsibility on the odd occasion a reminder is not delivered to you, and remembering an appointment time that you have booked is your responsibility.


If you are 10-15 or more minutes late (depending on the service), you can expect that your service may no longer be able to be completed or may need to be downgraded (eg a half head of foils instead of full head). If you are 10-15 minutes late more than once you can expect to pay for the time at a rate of $15 per 10 minutes.

While Salem Hair Co. reserves the right to charge in any of these instances, individual circumstances may be taken into consideration.



Gift Vouchers

Vouchers with either ‘Hair’ or ‘Nails’ crossed off, are only valid with the remaining service provider - this is due to the hair and nails being run as 2 separate businesses - please get in contact if this is an issue for you.
When a service is stated rather than a dollar value, there is a dollar value allocated to the service at our end, so voucher may be used for services of equal or lesser value at Salem's Discretion.

Change will not automatically be given and may be given in the form of another voucher at stylists discretion.
Vouchers with a monetary value may be used for product*, also at Stylists discretion.

Pricing and refunds


Printed prices, and prices online are a resource to be used as a guideline only and may be changed at any time, in any way, at either Salem Hair Co. or stylists discretion.

Pricing varies between stylists, so if you are budget conscious please be sure to choose a stylist at the correct price point when booking

Extra product and time may be charged for. Change of mind resulting in extra product being used or time taken will be charged for.


In the unlikely event that we are unable to complete your service to a satisfactory outcome, please let us know ASAP so we can work to rectify your issue. We ask that you contact us within 2 weeks of your service taking place. Our first option will be a re-do of your hair to work with anything you are unhappy with. 
In the even more unlikely event that this is not possible, you may be issued a partial or full refund at Salem Hair Co. Ltds. full discretion.
If you have dark or coloured hair and want to go blonde, and it is not blonde enough after one attempt, this is not included in the above statement. Colours fading due to improper home care, fashion colours fading, or other situations beyond our control may also be excluded from the above statement.
