Why does ananda have a time-based booking system instead of service-based?

At ananda, we believe in offering our clients maximum flexibility and transparency. With time-based booking, you can change your mind about services, get expert recommendations on the fly, and have clarity about costs from the outset. It’s all about putting you in control of your salon experience.

What happens if I book less time than I actually need?

If your desired services exceed the time you’ve booked, our stylists will prioritize tasks to fit within your timeframe or discuss extending your appointment if they have availability.

Can I change my mind about a service during the appointment?

Absolutely! That’s the beauty of our system! As long as it fits within the time you’ve booked, feel free to discuss changes with your stylist.

What if I’m unsure about how much time to book?

We recommend starting with our Time Calculator to get an estimate. If still unsure, don’t hesitate to contact us for guidance.

Are there any extra charges beyond the booked time?

Your charges are based solely on the time you book. There are no surprise costs. However, products purchased or additional time booked will be charged separately.

How early should I arrive for my appointment?

We recommend arriving 5-10 minutes early to ensure you get the full experience within your booked time. This also gives you ample time to enjoy our complimentary beverage station!

What’s the cancellation policy?

We understand that plans can change. You can cancel or reschedule up to 24 hours before your appointment. For cancellations within 24 hours, please refer to our detailed policy.

Will I be charged if I don’t use the full time booked?

No, you are only charged for the time you use. However, out of respect for your stylist’s time, please try to book only the time you need.

How does gratuity work with the time-based system?

Our time-based booking system, in addition to our stylist’s abilities to set their own rates, ensures that our stylists are paid well. Gratuities are not expected.
