So what's been going on you may ask ? Well in typical Zaque fashion I'll do my ranting as usual ... if you're bored already then feel free to bugger off any time now or simply go straight to the home page and explore the site further here.
For those that haven't been that attentive, the business is now called The Body Barber™ and yes, I have trademarked the name for Australia as I think it's a pretty awesome name and one that encompasses all that I do really.
As with all things, I am sure that there are spelling mistakes, a shitload of grammatical errors, maybe a few broken links and things that may just be confusing. Please don't be backward in coming forward and letting me know what things you have found. As always, I greatly appreciate your input and the fact that you care enough to let me know. ..... For those of you that don't care, tell that to me next time I'm ripping your hair out and we'll see who cares then !
I guess the main thing is the ability to book online .... what's that you say .... about friggin' time !!
The only way to get to the booking schedule to make an appointment is via the link 'BOOKING LOGIN' or by clicking on 'BOOK NOW' images throughout the site.
The 'sign in' link is a separate platform altogether and used for when you want to purchase a stock item (yet to be uploaded), pay for services in advance or pay a late cancellation fee.
If you would like to go straight to the online booking portal then use this link and bookmark it for future use. https://thebodybarber.com.au/pages/client-online-bookings
This will require you to create an account where you log in to make your booking. (this account is NOT the same account as the 'Sign In'
By having an account it will allow you to control your bookings and reschedule should the need arise, as long as it's not within 24hrs prior your scheduled time. Also, a history will be there so that you can control your booking and just reschedule the same again.
Prices have remained UNCHANGED, as they have for a few years now, what has changed is I now have images to represent the body areas.
This will hopefully take out the confusion for so many of those uninformative texts I get asking "can I have a wax?".
I thought it best to go back to kindergarten and use pictures. When I get a text enquiring about a back wax and I reply with $65, sometimes there's a delay of 20 minutes or more in their reply because they've just shat themselves wondering why a lat wax would cost so much. Lats are not a back wax so the images will solve that issue and save a lot of clean up at the same time.
To view prices, from the drop down menu select either the body area or everything. When you see what you may be interested in simply click on it and from the pop up window choose 'select pricing options' and the service you may be wanting, i.e. clip (manscape), wax or laser and the price will change accordingly. DO NOT 'add to cart' or 'buy now' ... you are able to pay for the products in your cart but it won't take you to the booking schedule. Here may be some confusion with 'ADD TO CART. Although you can add the service to your shopping cart and pay for it, if you want to book in a time you will need to use the 'BOOK ONLINE' button instead.
Note: Laser pricing is a guide only. A consultation IS required to get an accurate treatment cost. Clipping prices are also a guide, as their pricing reduces considerably when coupled with a wax or other clipped body areas.
(Yes, yes I know, it is incorrectly spelt intentionally as a play on the word 'maintenance')
This leads me to the next titillating offering .....
Still trying to work this whole blogging thing out, for the moment it seems to be more of a rant than anything else.
I'm sure as things settle down they will take true form and be of interest to at least someone.
You now have the opportunity to review and rate various services.
It's as simple as going to the 'price list' section, finding the service (or product) that you have received and click on the 'write a review' link.
This will take you to the service page where you can follow the prompts where it says "Client's feedback.
General feedback and testimonials can be submitted via the 'contact us' page here and again, any and all are greatly appreciated !
I'm closed from December 23rd until Jan 3rd. From now until then there are VERY limited free spots and I suggest that you use the online booking portal to secure anything that may be free. Please note though at this time of the year late fees or cancellation/no show fees WILL apply.
Extended hours till Christmas will require you to text me or call to get a time not available on the booking platform. There will be a small surcharge, or an offering to encourage me to get out of bed early or stay back .. Not that I want to influence you, but substantial cash offerings always works a treat in getting what you want 😉
