Hi Geeks

I have been considering taking deposits on my hair extension appointments. Any of you take deposits for this service?

Always. I take a deposit to cover the cost of the hair as they book the appointment. Never have a complaint about it either ;-)

Thanks. I have been thinking about this and a few have offered but I haven't as yet purely as I can return hair if the client cancels, however, it doesn't make up for time lost so think taking a deposit would help with people cancelling at the last minute x

Absolutly EVERY time!
I charge 1/2 the price of the service at the time of booking/consult and the other half is payable on the day of fitting.

Defiantly take a deposit! My clients usually predict they will have to pay a deposit anyway & never had a problem with it means ur not out of pocket having to order hair first with ur own money! :)

i always take non refundable deposit to cover the hair as i order the hair to match clients shade so if they cancel i have not wasted my money on hair that i might not be able to use in the future. But what I do if the client cancels i let them have the hair as after all they have paid for it in the deposit.

I always take a £50 non-refundable deposit, it doesnt cover the cost of the extensions I buy but if the cancel or change their mind it covers the cost of having to send the extensions back and my time that has been took up

I always take a deposit of 50% at the consultation (if the client wishes to proceed with a booking). Until the deposit is received, no booking/orders are made/placed.

Defo take deposit, I've had a couple of instances when I haven't taken a deposit because I've thought the person seems nice and genuine only for them to cancel at the last min and I incur a cost to return the hair!!!

A deposit shows the clients intent as well!!!
