Online Booking No More

You may notice that all the "book now" buttons have been removed from the website and the Facebook page.

That's because The Art of Nailz is currently not accepting new clients. Current clients can continue to book their appointments online through saved links.

I decided to take down the buttons because I know it's really frustrating to people who have been trying to get in. It doesn't help at all that the online booking program shows openings in the schedule to everyone.

It's difficult to explain that those openings are temporary-- they won't be there for long as they get gobbled up by in house booking and current clients.

For the time being, I have also stopped keeping a waiting list. Everyone who is already on the wait list is still there-- I promise! And as time opens up, I'll contact you and offer you what ever openings come up.

It's been a long time since I had space to offer to new clients and watching the wait list grow with no idea how long it might be before an opening will come up kills me.

New Prices are Overdue

It's been nearly 7 years since my expense account invoices and calculator spent some serious quality time together.

I worked very hard not to make any major changes to my prices through the recession and for the years of recovery immediately following.

And now I can't put it off any longer.

I'm here to break the news-- prices are going up.

Normally, I don't feel compelled to make a big deal about price increases. They happen all the time in every industry. Restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations adjust prices constantly without notice. We've all learned to look before we purchase in those industries.

People, unfortunately, take their salon services for granted. They get used to paying the same amount week after week, month after month, and often walk in with their checks already written. I expect consumers to understand that prices fluctuate as needed in the salon industry as well.

In calculating the new prices, I had to account for the rise in cost of doing business over the last few years, I had to account for the increased demands for appointments, and take into consideration my years of experience, advanced certifications, and other achievements within my industry that add to my level of expertise.

I understand that this is a substantial adjustment to the pricing structure that has been in place for the last several years.

I assure you-- I have done the math.

Please Check the New Prices

All clients will get advanced notice of new prices in person and take affect by the end of February.
