By proceeding to pay a deposit you accept that you are entering into a contract and you agree to be bound by these conditions. All payments made are strictly non-refundable, and non-transferable.
Immediate payment of a non-refundable, and non-transferable, deposit is required before a date will be held.

Once the deposit has been paid, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of your quote. All payments are strictly non-refundable, and non-transferable.
WHEN IS THE BALANCE DUE
The balance is due one month prior to your wedding date. For any day/ occasion makeup and hair, remaining balance is expected 24 hours prior or the morning of the appointment at the very latest. Any further amendments to the payment plan can that deter away from the terms and conditions stated here can only be done so, based on written consent from Pencil and Brush. Should no payment be received we have the right to cancel all services for your wedding/ day occasion date and all fees will still be payable.
IF YOU CANCEL YOUR BOOKING
In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your booking any payments you have made are strictly non-refundable, and non-transferable. If we book you in for hair or makeup it means we cannot book other clients and it's likely we have turned away other business. Due to our high demand for bookings, we are regularly booked months, if not years, in advance .
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
After paying your deposit - If someone decides to pull out of their service, the total amount quoted will remain the same and no refund will be offered, you have the option to replace them with someone else. Changes to your booking by adding another person onto your original booking can only be accepted if time / resources allow on your wedding day and we will require prior notice and payment due at the specified time. Adding extra people on the day, without prior warning, may jeopardise the quality of our work or delay the ceremony.
HAIR & MAKEUP TRIALS
We do one look during the trial and complete it to perfection (90 minutes for makeup, 90 minutes for hair styling) If you require prior experimentation to decide on your look this can be arranged at additional cost. All trials are to take place at our large, modern and bright, studio located on 128 Merindah Road, Bualkham Hills. We will do as much styling as we can in trial sessions (90 minutes for makeup, 90 minutes for hair styling). A second trial can be booked subject to availability. The same charges as your first trial will apply again unless arrangements are made with Pencil and Brush otherwise.. Trials are not compulsory but are recommended. Without a trial we will not accept responsibility if a chosen style or look does not work on a wedding day or there are circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, or expectations, and a refund will not be offered. 7 days prior notice must be given if you wish to cancel or reschedule your trial date. In the likely event that we have turned away alternative bookings to accommodate your trial, you will be charged. We reserve the right to cancel a booking following a trial, without a refund of the deposit, in circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, expectations and/or the client is uncooperative, not open to suggestions or makes any member of our team feel uncomfortable. It is advisable that you familiarise yourself with our work portfolio and ensure you are confident our capabilities and style are appropriate before securing a booking.
IF WE CANCEL OR CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
In the unlikely event that we, as a team, cannot attend on the day of your wedding due to unforeseen and unfortunate events or circumstances, all payments will be immediately refunded (including deposit and trial fees). We will work with you to find an alternative reputable stylist/artist or salon to cater for your requirements however; any such booking will remain solely the responsibility of yourself. If one of our team is unable to attend on the day, due to illness or unforeseen circumstances, we will immediately try to find an alternative freelance stylist/artist to stand in. If this is not possible we will ask for an earlier start time to accommodate original numbers, or will refund services, which are forfeited in part, or altogether, as a result. No further compensation will be offered. If a member of our team is made to feel uncomfortable in anyway, or mistreated, or if anyone becomes abusive/violent or displays any offensive behaviour, we have the right to cancel the contract without refund. In the event of extreme weather conditions where the ‘Met office’ has issued a ‘Red’ warning, we reserve the right to cancel your booking. We will refund all monies as a gesture of goodwill, excluding trial costs and deposit.
