We request the minimum level of personally identifying information to run our business effectively. This is data you provide us directly, for example, your name and contact details. We will never obtain information about you indirectly from sources outside our business. We store notes with respect to services we undertake to ensure we maintain and exceed our level of service. For example, your preferred hair style, colour formula codes, and who your preferred stylists are. If you would not like to have these notes in the system, please notify us. Depending on the particular service(s) we are providing we may be required to ask questions related to your medical history.
