Commitment To Service
Vivid is dedicated to service and value. All of our licensed stylists sincerely enjoy what they do - a fact that reflects in the smiles and repeat business of our clients. We promise individual attention and great value for all of our customers.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment. We schedule appointments according to our stylist’s availability and specialty. If you are running late, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Arriving late will likely limit the time allocated for your service; it will lessen the effectiveness and most importantly your pleasure and enjoyment. As a courtesy to all clients our treatments are completed as scheduled. Cancellations of all styling services require a 24-hour notice. Thank you for your consideration and understanding. Gratuities are not included in the price of services and are greatly appreciated. Suggestions are always welcome.
Please note - if you wish to make an appointment via email (or our handy smart phone app!), messages sent later than salon hours will be received first thing the next morning. These do not book automatically, and our Front Desk Coordinator will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!
Treat someone you love, or reward someone who has earned it, to their own Vivid experience! Ideal for holiday gifts, birthdays, anniversaries as well as employees and business clients, gift cards are available in any amount, redeemable towards the recipient's services of choice at the salon.
