1. WHAT WE DO

LSW provides the Services to USER for the purpose of assisting USER in securing salon appointments at participating third party salons (each a "Salon"). In response to a USER's online request, the Site directly contacts the Salon. The availability of appointment is determined at the time of USER's query. Once an appointment is made by USER, LSW will provide confirmation of the reservation to USER by email. By using the Services, USER agrees to receive reservation confirmations by email after booking a reservation through the Site.

2. USE OF THE SITE

3. LSW MILES

USER may be able to participate in LSW’s USER benefits program, including LSW MILES. Participation is subject to LSW MILES Terms and Conditions.

4. NO SHOW POLICY

LSW is committed to providing superior quality services to its USERS and Salons. To assist us in maintaining a consistently high level of service with the participating Salons, USERS are asked to cancel any appointment that they will be unable to honor in accordance with the salon's individual cancelation policy, which will always be shared with the USER on the Site at the time the reservation is made.

You agree to pay any Salon the required cancellation or change fees that you incur. If you are unable to keep your appointment and you fail to cancel, LSW will send you an email letting you know that our records indicate that you were a no-show. By using the Services, USER agrees to receive no-show confirmations by email after a Salon and/or the Site reports your reservation was not honored, whether or not that was in fact the case. Your LSW account will be terminated if you no-show for three reservations. If you feel that your reservation has been recorded as a no-show in error, simply follow the link contained in the notification email to dispute the no-show and fill out the form with a brief explanation of the situation. State as many details as possible to help us to review your account with the Salon's management. LSW reserves the right to request documentation, such as a receipt. LSW may adjust your Miles balance after this investigation. LSW cannot review disputes submitted more than 14 days after the reservation date. USER agrees that all final no-show determination will be made by LSW in its sole discretion.
