You’ve Got Questions - I’ve Got Answers
Below you will find some frequently asked questions I receive from many of my clients. I have tried to answer all of your questions and concerns however if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, please send use the chat feature on the bottom right corner and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
What Makes Cosmetics & Eyebrows Atelier Awesome and Different?
My studio is a full-service, eyebrows-only beauty bar. All treatments for your eyebrows include prep, cleaning, and applying aftercare products as well as cosmetics to enhance the appearance of your brows. You will also have the opportunity to purchase the same products I used on you so you can work to achieve the same results at home. Clients schedule their own appointments so all your information is stored on my system in preparation of your service.
Do You Have a Referral System?
For every 3 people that you refer that happen to turn into loyal clients, we will reward you with a gift. Gifts are either a complimentary service or cosmetic products.
When you love your service, you tell everyone. By referring me to others you're sharing my passion for helping you achieve #BROWGOALS and rewards come with that.
May I Bring a Friend or My Child With Me?
Can I bring food or a drink?
NO and NO.
NO client guests or children are allowed. Due to both safety, health, and COVID precautions, only the service provider and the client are allowed inside Cosmetics & Eyebrows Atelier. PLEASE DO NOT BRING FOOD OR BEVERAGES WITH YOU. This is a sterile and clean environment. Food and drinks are not allowed.
If you bring a guest, the guest can either sit in the 2 designated areas located at the front entrance of Heaven on Earth Salon Suites or in the back of the building near the restrooms. If your guest insists on sitting with you during your appointment, I will NOT start services and I will STOP the services IMMEDIATELY, and ask you to leave. You will then have to reschedule your appointment online where you will also have to submit another non-refundable service deposit.
If you bring food or a drink with you, you will be asked to remove it or the appointment will be canceled. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Simply, please DO NOT bring any guests with you and eat or drink your beverages prior to arriving.
Which Payment Methods Do Cosmetics and Eyebrows Atelier Accept?
I accept credit cards and debit cards. I DO NOT accept cash. PAYMENT PLANS are now available for microblading, microshading, and combination brows NOT touchups. A valid credit/debit card MUST BE ON FILE. Any rejected payments or insufficient funds will result in a $25 fee to you, the client. Please be sure you have the funds available.
I do not accept other forms of payment.
After services have been completed you will be checked out using SquareUP. The standard processing fee is 2.6% + 10¢ for contactless payments, mobile taps, swiped or inserted chip cards, and swiped magstripe cards. Payments that are manually keyed in, processed using a Card on File, or manually entered using a Virtual Terminal have a 3.5% + 15¢ fee. Invoices cost 2.9% + 30¢ or 3.5% + 15¢ if processed using Card on File.
The processing fee I have rounded to 3% which is what you will be charged for each service sales transaction.
Product sales are taxed to 8% which is required by law in the state of Illinois.
If you are using my CURRENT DEAL ON Groupon, please be sure to choose the correct service that is under the "Groupon" section on the "Services" page. No PAST DEALS are accepted. Contact Groupon for a refund.
What's Up With the Non-Refundable Deposits?
All appointments have a non-refundable deposit when YOU, the client make the appointment. This deposit is a portion of your service cost. Deposits go towards your service, the products, tools, space being used, and the time set aside for you and the service provider. The deposit is also if you cancel or do not show up for your appointment.
Please be kind and respectful by avoiding no-shows and cancellations.
What is the Cancellation Policy?
All cancellations must be done 48 hours before your appointment. By canceling 48 hours in advance you will have the option to re-book immediately if a slot is available. Reschedules are counted as cancellations.
If you cancel or reschedule more than 3 times, you may not book another appointment for 3 months. When you cancel or reschedule 3 times, the time that was reserved for your appointment included setup, materials, and anticipating your full-service eyebrow treatment. Please be kind and respectful by keeping your scheduled appointment times. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to this policy.
Also, due to COVID refusing to wear a mask will count as a cancellation.
What If I'm Running Late?
Arriving late to your appointment will be $5 after 10 minutes you are late. If you are late more than 10 minutes, it will be $5 every 5 minutes. After 20 minutes, your appointment will be canceled and you will need to reschedule and pay another non-refundable deposit.
When you arrive late, that is the time being taken away from your full-service eyebrow appointment. Microblading is a 2+ hour service and cannot be rushed. "Brow Lamination" is the second-longest service followed. All treatments come with a wash and style so it takes time.
Please avoid being tardy by arriving 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
Arriving On Time Has Bonuses!
When you arrive at your appointment, you will be checked in at the recorded time. By arriving on time for your appointment, you will also receive points that will go towards gratis. Gratis includes complementary services or cosmetics.
PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE MORE THAN 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT. There may be a client already being serviced or I may not be available. Simply arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled time. Please do not call back to back or send text messages asking if I will be there. I am aware of your scheduled time and service. If your appointment is canceled by me on the day of, you will be alerted an hour or more beforehand.
Are You Taking Health & Safety Precautions for COVID-19 and COVID VARIANTS?
Yes and most definitely! Masks are required when entering Heaven and Earth Salon Suites which is where my atelier is located. Masks are required during your services inside my suite even if you are vaccinated. If you do not have a mask, you will be charged $2 for not adhering to the mask policy. If you refuse to wear a mask, the appointment will be canceled immediately. No exceptions.
I will be wearing a mask at all times when you are in the atelier.
Please do not come to my brow studio if you have been exposed to someone with COVID symptoms or have tested positive for COVID. Cancel your appointment if you have symptoms such as coughing, nausea, loose stools, nasal drainage, chest pains, throat pains, and body aches, or more associated with COVID and the VARIANTS.
If you do not cancel the appointment, it will be canceled for you.
View the full COVID list of symptoms HERE ON THE CDC'S WEBSITE.
Can I Get an Eyebrow Service Not Listed on the Menu?
Definitely. When developing the service menu, I thought of the top eyebrow services people want but also included services that everyone needs. If you want to try something different, go ahead and ask and I will price it for you then add it to my service menu.
Please note, there is no waxing or facials done at my studio. There is also no hair removal on any part of the face other than the eyebrows. I can recommend you to an esthetician that is also located inside Heaven on Earth Salon suites where my studio is.
