Salon San Carlos Policies

Safety & Health Guidelines

Please come alone to your appointment.

We will not accommodate extra family members, children or friends. 

*Mask Requirements

  • Wearing a mask is one way to reduce the spread of Delta and other variants.
    CDC recommends that even people who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask indoors in areas of substantial or high transmission. Florida is still considered a high transmission area.

    Updated March 5 ,2022
    At this time we are
    not making it mandatory that clients or staff wear a mask. We will have masks available if you prefer to wear one. PLEASE note that our protocol will change as we continue to monitor the cases.

    Because of our inability to social distance within the salon enviroment, 
    "If you prefer your service provider to wear a mask please ask and they will comply"


    We have been, and will remain, open to serve our clients regardless of their decision or ability to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.  

    We understand that there are many opinions on this matter, and we respect everyone and their personal choice; however, health and safety will always be our number one priority.
    We will discontinue temperature checks at this time. We may occasionally ask your permission to check your temperture before your appointment. If your temperature is greater than 100.4F, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment a minimum of 14 days out. 
    We ask that you PLEASE call to reschedule your appointment if you are sick.

    At this time we are offering complimentary beverages, upon request. Please be understanding if this policy has to change. Thank you

    Cancellation / No show policy

    As a courtesy to our guests and team members, appointments must be cancelled no later than 24 hours in advance.

    Gift Cards

    Our gift cards are available in any dollar amount and can be redeemed for salon services or product purchases. Unfortunately, they are not redeemable for cash, and we cannot reimburse lost or stolen gift cards.

    Child Safety Policy

    We welcome families with children of all ages to our salon. However, to ensure their safety, our policy strictly prohibits unsupervised children in the salon. We kindly request ONLY those receiving services be present in the service areas. Older children (11+), capable of sitting quietly and unsupervised, may wait in the provided seating area. While this policy helps ensure that all guests enjoy a relaxing salon experience, it was created with your child's safety in mind. Our salon is not child proof. Sharp implements, hot styling tools, chemicals and a busy, congested area make for a potentially dangerous environment for young children.


    Our rates do not include gratuity, but it is greatly appreciated if you feel the service warrants it! As a convenience, we offer the option of adding a gratuity to your credit card at the time of payment.

    Loss or Damage

    We regret that we cannot be responsible for loss or damage to personal articles, including clothing or accessories. Please keep valuables with you during your appointment.

    One Team - Open Chair Policy

    Any time you need a fresh point of view, please try another member of our staff. We are one team and we are all dedicated to providing you with the best service and experience at our salon. The most important aspect of hairdressing is to find a stylist who "gets you:" someone who suits your personality and understands your styling needs. If you've browsed our site but are unsure of who might be the best fit for you, please give us a call to obtain a personalized referral to the stylist who would best suit your style.
