For clients planning on keeping their june, july, august 2021 wedding dates:
Unfortunately we are not allowed by law to provide full face makeup services until we enter STEP THREE. We can however provide hairstyling services and half face makeup in STEP TWO (includes under eyes, eyes, lashes, brows, and forehead). This information is new according to Provincial-wide covid regulations and we are including this update to all of our 2021 Brides at the end of each email moving forward. We cannot provide you with a proper hair and makeup trial until we enter STEP THREE and have no way of knowing when this will be. Hair only trials will be allowed to resume in STEP TWO.
In case you are faced with the dilemma of cancelling or changing your services on our contract together we've listed some possible options below for you:
Option 1 - Remove all makeup services from your contract and use the makeup portion of your down payment to pay the balance of your hair services. (Only valid if you have hair services booked)
Option 2 - Cancel your services/contract with us and forfeit your down payment. (All down payments are non-refundable)
Option 3 - Reschedule your contracted services to a new date in STEP THREE and carry-over your down payment amount. (No money lost)
Option 4 - Sell your down payment to another person. You must confirm that we have their date available before selling your down payment.
Option 5 - Cancel your wedding contract and use your down payment amount towards online makeup lessons, boudoir or portrait photography services (available to book in STEP TWO), or makeup product purchases (Arbonne)
As a courtesy while navigating these stressful and confusing covid times as both a business owner, and you as a (potential) client, I am letting all of our clients who are interested in booking their wedding dates in 2021 know that regardless of covid restrictions, down payments are always non-refundable and are used to cover an array of costs on top of the services provided such as studio rent, advertising fees, administrative assistant fees, bills, etc.
If you need to reschedule your wedding for a second or third time, there will be a $50 non-taxable administration fee in order for us to complete the contract and update the invoice. Please keep an eye out on the Government Website for restrictions in the Niagara Region for beauty services as we may not have had the chance to update you with the information you need yet: https://www.ontario.ca/page/reopening-ontario
STEP ONE - 60% of adults with vaccination + 21 days before next step = no hair/makeup allowed by law
STEP TWO - 70% of adults with vaccination + 21 days before next step = no makeup below the mask allowed by law - makeup above the mask and hairstyling allowed
STEP THREE - 70-80% of adults with vaccination = all hairstyling and makeup is permitted by law
I think it’s important as a wedding vendor to be transparent and keep our clients in the loop with these changes in order for you to make the right decision when it comes to booking vendors for your special day! We appreciate the grace and empathy you've provided us while we try our best to navigate these changes. We are far from perfect and are doing our best to stay on top of the changes we're being faced with on a weekly basis. We apologize for any inconveniences.
Thanks so much in advance! - Paje and the Honor Beauty Team
