Yes. Even if you are just picking something up or want to browse, we need to know you are coming to prepare things for you!
For safety and insurance reasons, children are not allowed in the salon. We cannot accommodate strollers, and the salon is not equipped to care for children. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for all of our brides, and we have seen that crying babies and running toddlers can be distracting and ruin a bride's memorable day. Our main concern is the safety hazards for children in the salon, such as loose pins, hard surfaces, falling mannequins, and damaged merchandise. Additionally, we know that expecting a small child to be quiet and sit still for over an hour is unreasonable and would not be fun for them at all. We ask that this Child Safety Policy be communicated to anyone who is invited to your appointment, and we appreciate your understanding!
