WoW Beauty & Nails

A cancellation of an appointment will result in loss of the reservation fee/deposit. The amount lost depends on the total cost of your booking but will be no more than €/£/$1.50. If a booking is partially cancelled (one or more, but not all treatments that are part of the booking) the reservation fee/deposit will not change. If the service provider cancels the whole booking the reservation fee/deposit will be credited to your Phorest account. This credit can be used to reserve future bookings on Phorest. If the services provider only partially cancels a booking your reservation/deposit fee will not change.

Users may cancel bookings made online up to 48 hours in advance of the time of the appointment online by going to their Phorest account. If an appointment has not been cancelled with 48 hours notice the salon has the right to charge users the balance of the appointment cost (i.e. the payment due in the salon which equals the total cost of the appointment minus the reservation fee/deposit paid online). Users who cancel appointments with more than 48 hours notice will only lose their reservation fee/deposit.

By making a reservation with your credit card or bank card, you agree that if you cancel your reservation with less than 48 hours notice or if you fail to arrive by your agreed appointment time, you authorise the services provider to charge to your credit card or debit card without further reference to you an amount lower or equal to your booking or an amount that might be set out in the service provider's terms and conditions. For this purpose your credit or debit card will be securely stored.

Phorest does not accept responsibility for cancellations by the user or by the services provider regardless of the circumstances in which the cancellation is made. Phorest shall not accept any liability for losses, additional expenses or any claim whatsoever due to changes in salon services, sickness, weather, strikes or any other cause. All such losses, additional expenses or claims will be borne by you unless otherwise agreed between you and the service provider.


Phorest makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that all credit card and debit card transactions are secure. HOWEVER, if unauthorised charges appear on your credit card or debit card statement for any card used on this website at any time during or after you make your reservation, conduct your transaction or disclose your card details on this website, Phorest shall not be liable or responsible in any way in respect of any damage or loss of whatsoever nature suffered by you arising from or in any way connected with said use, transaction or disclosure, subject only to any statutory rights which you may have.
