Studio Orlo Policies



Booking Appointments/
Card on File


Upon booking your appointment, we require you to place a credit card on file or we will not book your appointment – NO EXCEPTIONS! This policy is to reduce last minute cancellations or no call/no shows as they will be subject to our cancellation fee. We understand emergency circumstances occasionally arise and these will be the only exceptions (sickness, family emergencies, dangerous weather conditions) to our no show/cancellation fee. 



Please note a 24 hour cancellation notice is required for any and all service/services booked.  Your credit card will be charged 50% of the price of the service that is booked for any and all services/ appointments without 24 hour cancellation notice. This charge of will also apply to clients that no call/no show for their appointment. If you book your appointment under the 24 hour notice timeline the cancellation policy is still in effect. We realize emergencies do occur, and this will be taken into consideration when charging your card. Please understand we work by appointment and without advance notice other clients on our cancellation list and our stylists lose out on potential services.



Gratuities are not included in the price of your service but are appreciated if you feel as though it is appropriate. Gratuities cannot be added to your total upon checkout. There is an ATM located at the bank next door to the salon.
