Clients canceling with less than 24 hours of your scheduled appointment will be required to pay 50% of the services reserved in order to continue booking services at Tomoko Shima Hair Salons.

  If you have booked your appointment with less than 24 hours between your booking time and scheduled appointment you are required to cancel 3 hours before your service start time to avoid the late cancellation fee. 


Appointments booked with less than 3 hours of time between when the appointment was made, and when the appointment was scheduled to take place are not subject to this policy.
