Policy. Please read through the FAQs, BEFORE & AFTERCARETERMS & CONDITIONS pages prior to setting your appointment to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for permanent makeup.  Results varies from client-to-client and lifestyles.  How the skin will react is different for everyone and many factors are to be taken into consideration.  Skin type, age, scarring, diet, stress levels, facial products used, etc. all play a key role in how the pigment will hold, which is why it is important to know that more than one touch up may be required.  We can guarantee that your face is important to us and that we will act in accordance with our experience and expertise to give you our absolute best.  We can guarantee that we will strive to make you content every time.  But there are no guarantees in this industry.  Please think long and hard before you decide to go for it.

We will allow you to have as much control over the procedure as possible, so there's very little room for error.  If you do not like the decision you made, the Touch Up can be cancelled and the pigmented area naturally fades away over time.  If you aren't 100% sure you would benefit from this procedure, please opt for a more temporary option.  

We understand that things happen at the last minute so PLEASE, give us a courtesy call 48 hours (2 days) prior to your schedule appointment in the event you must cancel/reschedule to avoid a cancellation fee.  If client does not cancel on time or show up, 50% fee will be charged.  This is non-negotialble.  Why?  Because we reserve the business hours for you and when you decide to no-call/no-show we loose business within those hours.  

BIG BOLD BROWS reserve the right to refuse service at any time.  Services are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.  Prices subject to change at any time.  Please do not bring your children and pets to your appointment.  Thank you for your understanding.
