Deposits & Payments
WHAT AM I INVESTING IN?
Please note this is much more than providing a "simple" beauty service. Our artist's invest in heavy-duty equipment, products to maintain a fully stocked kit for all skin tones, skin types, and hair textures, as well as, the training & education to provide the skillset it takes to deliver their professional artistry. As a small business, payments help support and maintain the Almontes platform and related services, including multiple operating costs. Most importantly, the invested time we give to provide you with a one-on-one consultation via phone, online or through various emails, detailed coordinating, and traveling on your special day. We aim towards building a glam squad that you can trust!
WHY DO I NEED TO GIVE A DEPOSIT?
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to ensure that your date and time slot is reserved. We turn down any other requests to cater our services just for you! Early booking is advised, as we accept bookings up to two years in advance.
WHEN IS THE FINAL BALANCE DUE?
All payments are due 1 week before booked date. Failure to do so will result in immediate cancellation and a new booking with deposit will be required, if availability permits.
WHAT METHOD OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
At this time, Almontes accepts payments via zelle to the recipient email at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT ADDITIONAL COSTS ARE PAID BY CLIENTS?
All travel, parking, and valet fees must be paid by the client.
IS GRATUITY INCLUDED?
Gratuity is NOT included within our pricing, but is greatly appreciated. Any tips sent via Zelle will be evenly distributed to staff, unless specified. Cash is also accepted to hand to staff the day of.
We highly recommend 18%-20%.
