Please remember to give us as much notice as possible if you need to change your appointment we are human we understand things happen. If you cannot make you appointment very last minute let us know as it means we have often set up for you and will wait so even a few minutes notice is better than none, it means we can get on with other jobs.

It doesn’t happen often (once before) but sometimes people get lost trying to find us,  Eastcombe has no street lights so please if you are not sure please  call for directions, bring your mobile with you (if you have one) and our number so if you do get lost you can phone and get more directions we appreciate this and we are sure you will  Thank you

Vanilla Moon so much more than just a beauty salon!
