You acknowledge that Salon Services specialises in the supply of products for use and retail sale by salons only. Sale of products other than for use and retail sale by salons amounts to diversion (for example sale of products to other businesses such as retail outlets, including but not limited to, chemists, supermarkets or wholesalers amounts to diversion) and that diversion seriously damages the reputation of the brands of the products supplied to you and damages with our business relationship with our customers and brand owners. We reserve the right to monitor your purchases of these types of products and will take action against you where we suspect diversion is taking place.

If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
