Elan Hair Studio FAQs

I've never been to Élan before... How do I select a Stylist?

Customer satisfaction is our number one goal. Our policy is to pair you up with the most experienced stylist possible. You may request one yourself as well. View their profiles here. You can click on their portfolio link to see more examples of their work.


What is the difference between a Master Artist and an Advanced Artist?

Advanced Artists have a minimum of three years behind the chair. They also have to meet our standards of excellence in quality of work and customer satisfaction. Our Master Artists have been hairstylists for 5 or more years and have distinguished themselves in the hairstyling community at large in a variety of ways such as winning awards, having their work published or by becoming a brand educator etc. 

 Hair Artists are hairstylists who have less than three years of experience behind the chair. We make sure our stylists at all levels are properly trained and that they meet our high standards of excellence.


Do I need to leave a deposit?

If you are a new client and/or booking a lengthy appointment for services such as ombré, balayage, highlights, color correction or straightening you may be asked for a deposit to reserve the appointment time. This will be applied to the cost of the service however if you no-show or cancel with less than 24 hours notice the deposit will not be refunded.  Book online then click on the paypal link on the booking page to pay your deposit. You can also call us to pay it over the phone with a credit card. We will email you a confirmation after your deposit is paid.  


How do I know how much I will be charged?

The only firm prices we can quote over the phone is for haircuts (wash cut and style) and basic color retouch services. This is because most other services can be quite varied in their complexity and appointment duration. A consultation is always done prior to the start of the service and a quote can be given at that time. You can also request to come in prior to your appointment date for a consultation at no charge.  


What do I do if nothing is available online when I need to come in?

 Your stylist may already be booked or may not be working at that time, also the online booking system looks for very specific time slots for each service. If for whatever reason it will not allow you to book during your preferred time, give us a call and we may be able to find a way to get you in during your available time.


Why can't I book for today or tomorrow online?

Our online appointment system has a 24 hour blackout period. For last minute appointments please call the salon for availability.


I booked an appointment online but received no confirmation, what should I do?

It is most likely your appointment did get booked, however sometimes email addresses get reported as invalid, or the email got redirected to your junk mail. In any case you should call the salon to confirm it.
