Terms & Conditions

Appointment Terms and Conditions

When you finalise an appointment with us, you accept all of our terms and conditions

Cancellations

  • If you need to cancel your appointment please either click the button in your confirmation email or log on to your personal account through our booking service.
  • Please note that these two options will only work if there are more than 24 hours left before your appointment.
  • If you are unable to use either of these please send us an email at info@empirelashesandbeauty.com, or message our Facebook Page.
  • Appointments cancelled or rescheduled inside of the 24 hours until service window will incur a 50% cancellation fee. The cancellation fee will be rounded up to the nearest dollar.
  • All of our services require a 50% deposit to be paid at the time of booking. This deposit will be used to cover the cancellation fee.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment, if you are more than 5 minutes late we will be unable to complete the service and you will have to be rebooked. Please note you will be charged the cancellation fee as our time has already been booked up with you.
  • If you miss an appointment or arrive late your account will be marked with a ‘Did not show’. If you receive three of these we will no longer be able to take appointments for you as it is not fair to other clients who could use the time slot.
  • Please be careful when making appointments online. If you create appointments which are within a close time frame of each other and fail to go to one, you will still be charged the cancellation fee. You are able to log in to our booking system and see all of your appointments. Empire Lashes & Beauty takes no responsibility for your management of appointments.
  • If you book a top-up appointment but do not have the required 50% of extensions remaining, our lash artists may not have enough time to complete a full set for you. This will then incur the cancellation fee, and you will need to make a new booking.

Deposits

  • All Services require a 50% deposit to be paid at the time of booking.
  • Discounts are calculated after the appointment.
  • Rescheduling an appointment outside of the 24 hours until service window will not require an additional deposit.
  • No refunds will be given for appointments cancelled outside of the 24 hours until service window. A credit for the deposit amount will be added to your account and be available for use at your next appointment.
  • Credit on your account is not available to use for paying deposits online. If you would like to use your credit towards a deposit for another appointment, please contact us directly. The credit can be used in-store to pay the remainder of an appointment.
  • Any cancellations or rescheduling inside the 24 hours until service window will have the deposit used to cover the cancellation fee.

Post Appointment Issues

  • Your lash artist will measure the length and curl of your natural lashes before starting your service. They will then recommend a length, curl, and style for your extensions. You are able to alter what you receive but will forfeit the ability for us to do a free fix up for any issues in the first week after your appointment. Extensions that are longer or curlier than what we recommend will have a higher likelihood of issues as they do not suit your natural lashes.
  • Your lash artist is able to take before photos if you would like to see the difference.
  • If you have an allergic reaction (Tearing or runny eyes, Swollen eyelids, Soreness, burning, or pain) please notify us within 24 hours of your appointment, we will book you in for a free removal and full refund.
  • Empire Lashes & Beauty takes no responsibility for the aftercare of your lash extensions. Please make yourself familiar with our aftercare advice to maintain your lash extensions. If you find there is an issue with your lash extensions please notify us within 1 week of your lash appointment to rectify the issue, free of charge.
  • We only provide a refund if the service causes a medical issue. In all other cases, we have the right to provide a fix-up appointment.

Payment

  • We offer EFTPOS and Cash payments in-store.
  • We have a backup facility which allows us to email you with a link to an online payment system. Payments done through this system must be made within seven days of the appointment. Any outstanding payments will mean we are unable to provide your next service.

Lash Extensions Top-Ups

  • Top-ups are recommended every 2-3 weeks. Appointments after 3 weeks will likely require a full set. This timeframe is only a guideline and regardless of how long it has been since your previous appointment, you still require at least 50% of the extensions remaining. Your Lash Artist has the final say on whether you require a full set or top-up.
  • Please note if you have booked in for a top-up and come to your appointment with less than 50% of a full lash set this is considered a full set and will be charged accordingly. This can only be done if there is enough time available to complete a full set. Full sets are an hour and a half appointment, whereas top-ups are one hour.
  • If you currently have any lash extensions on from another salon, we are happy to infill on the lashes if they are applied to our Empire Lashes & Beauty standard. Please contact us first as we may need to remove your existing lash extensions and apply a new full set.
  • We will change your appointment to a half top up if you have over 75% of your extensions remaining at your appointment. These appointments cannot be booked online and the Lash Artist has the final say on what the service will be. Half top-ups are charged at half of the top-up price rounded up to the nearest dollar.
