Secured Waiting List Option - Oct 2013
Based on feedback from prospective customers from previous open calls, we decided to add this feature for those that are interested.
Please read the following information very carefully:
What is the Secured List Waiting Option?
This is a feature that will allow you to secure a spot on our waiting list if the slots have sold out and you still wish to secure an appointment. There are limited secured slots. This is a separate list from the "General Mailing List". This will guarantee that you will be seen before the next round of openings. You will be notified of what number you are within the waiting list in about 3 days. Then we’ll give you an update on the expected timeframe for your actual appointment. You are welcomed to check in as often as you wish to check on the status of your secured position within the waiting list.
Who May Secure a Spot on the Waiting List?
1) Any interested person who lives far from the area and needs extra time to set up travel arrangements to get to Maryland
2) A person who may be unavailable on the days that the consultations are being offered
3) A person who may have a future special occasion and does not need a slot right now, but would like to secure something with us in advance. We can schedule around your future availability.
4) If the slots for the upcoming consultation days become sold out, and you still wish to have an appointment without having to go through the first-come first-served process in the near future.
5) If you just put new braids in your hair and you'd like to wear them until it's time to take them out after 2-3 months.

What does the fee cover?
The fee covers a reduced consultation fee and a deposit that will be applied to the total cost of your service.
Detailed Explanation of Fees:
--If you select to secure a weave spot with a junior stylist for a total of $105; $5 covers the online payment surcharge, $20 will cover your reduced consultation fee, the remaining $80 serves as your deposit towards the actual service to be performed.
--If you select to secure a weave spot with Breon for a total of $145; $5 covers the online payment surcharge, $25 will cover your reduced consultation fee, then the remaining $120 serves as your deposit towards the actual service to be performed.
--If you select to secure a weave spot with Reniece for a total of $185; $5 covers the online payment surcharge, $25 will cover your reduced consultation fee, then the remaining $160 serves as your deposit towards the actual service to be performed.

Once you have had a consultation, you are able to book a slot for any available upcoming appointment. As of Oct 2013, deposits are not required for natural hair services until further notice.
How long will it take to get the actual appointment after I have paid for my spot on the waiting list?
As of October 2013, we anticipate that you will have an opportunity to be seen within 4 months of the date of purchase.
Is there a possibility of an opening soon by chance?
Yes, it is possible. Sometimes people come in for their consultation and we determine that they may not yet be a good candidate for weave services -- so that opens up free slot for another new client. It is solely based on availability, but we will be sure to contact you in the event that a slot opens up.
I chose to have a wig/weave service done. What happens if I decide to not have a wig or weave service when it is time to be seen by the stylist?
You are welcomed to have any other non-weave hair services done until your credit with us is depleted. Other services include shampoos, treatments, trims, wet sets, etc. No refunds will be given.
Do not submit a payment for this feature unless you have completely read and understand what you are purchasing.
There is no obligation to purchase a guaranteed slot on the Secured Waiting List. You may simply wait until the next first-come first-served open call for new clients. We usually open up once or twice per year. Please choose what works best for you.
THIS IS NON-REFUNDABLE PURCHASE/DEPOSIT. No refunds will be given so please be sure to read before selecting this feature. Refunds will not be given due to the fact that you may have skipped over reading everything stated here. Please email or call us if you have any questions.
