Salon and Spa Etiquette

At Salute Hair & Day Spa, we offer the opportunity for you to enjoy not only beautiful treatments, but also a tranquil and peaceful environment. Please respect the quiet and privacy of other Salon and Spa guests by using a lowered voice and turning off mobile phones. For your comfort, the Spa is a child-free area.

Our Commitment to You
We deeply value your time and our team's efforts. Our booking policy is designed to enhance our services and offer you a seamless experience. Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with the key points below.

Our Booking Deposit
To ensure a seamless experience for your upcoming appointments, we've introduced a booking deposit of $50. This deposit will be conveniently subtracted from your total service cost during your appointment. Alternatively, if you decide not to proceed with the service, it will be credited to your account for future use. This flexible deposit can be applied towards any of our offerings, serving as a helpful way to support our efficient business operations and offer a fair booking system for everyone.

Cancellation and No-Show Policy
We understand that life can sometimes present unexpected changes. With this in mind, we kindly ask for a minimum of 24 hours' notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Failure to provide this notice may result in a charge equal to your $50 booking fee, which will be retained or required before scheduling future appointments.

In case of short notice cancellations, you have two options:
  •     Send a friend or family member in your place.
  •     Pay a $50 late notification fee.
Deposits and booking fees are non-refundable.

No-Show Fee
When a no-show occurs without reasonable notification, a $50 fee will be charged to your nominated card on file. This fee reflects our commitment to optimizing our services and respecting the time of both clients and staff.

Why It Matters
No-shows have a profound impact on our business. They lead to lost revenue opportunities and disrupt our operations. When a client doesn't show up for a scheduled appointment, the potential income and valuable time are lost, affecting the entire team. As a small business, these instances are particularly challenging for us.

Your Role
Your support is crucial in upholding the integrity of our services. By booking with us, you acknowledge and agree to abide by our Booking, Cancellation, and No-Show Policy. We truly believe that your respect for our time enhances the experience for everyone.

Staying Connected
To help you stay on track, we provide automated reminders via email or text. Please ensure we have your accurate contact details to receive these reminders. Confirming your appointments with us ensures a smooth process for you and fellow clients.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation. We look forward to seeing you and providing you with the exceptional service you deserve.

"I would like to share my experience over the last few months but especially today... Thank you ‘Angel' who is in training & does the best hair/ head massages. Every time I go it’s so relaxing having her shampoo, condition & massage nourishing products into my hair. Make sure you book and have the experience I have had. Keep up the great work Angel. See you again soon."
- Christine 

"This is by far the best place in town! Hair, nails, treatments - anything your pretty little heart desires. Such a great and capable team and what a wonderfully indulgent ambience. Best thing of all - the vibe is very welcoming, friendly and fun despite the sense of luxury you feel. Best place to go to feel revived and pampered."
- Johana

"Thanks Tara for my amazing facial last week! I left feeling refreshed and my skin looked so good."
- Nikki 

"I can highly recommend Giang at Salute Hair and Day Spa in Lower Hutt. She consistently cuts my hair beautifully, I have learnt a lot from her about how to tame my unruly mop and she is so lovely to deal with (the staff at the reception desk are fabulous too!)"
- Joanna

"First time using Salute and the girls at the front desk and Chloe were welcoming and Chloe did an awesome job on my brows and lashes. Looking forward to my next appointment."
- Tayla 

"Ann is an absolute godsend! I couldn’t recommend Ann more highly - I have been to get spray tans many times elsewhere and I have never received such a thorough tan. Ann’s attention to detail, kindness and genuine love for what she does is an experience in itself. Highly recommend."
- Beth 

"Had the most wonderful Facial with Ann. Felt like a mini holiday, from the moment I arrived, the robe , the retreat room it really is all a lovely vibe! Ann has confidence gained by years of experience and I absolutely love that especially when you want good solid advice on your skin. Ann delivered a wonderful results driven facial that was so relaxing I almost fell asleep it included the most amazing massage as well. It’s really lovely to have a treatment from a lovely person who genuinely cares and loves their job and a great reminder to stop and have some time for yourself."
- Emma

"I had a Man escape spa package with Ann. It was an amazing experience where I used the vichy room for the first time. The body scrub was so good and the facial and massage was first class. I can't wait for my next one!! Thanks Ann and Salute staff."
- Mark
