Salon Etiquette and Terms and Conditions

How long before a treatment should I arrive?

Please arrive 10 minutes before your treatment is scheduled.

This gives you and your therapist time to plan the perfect treatment experience. This also gives you time to relax in our lounge and enjoy a cup of our Organic Tea.

During this time we can collect information that is required to ensure that your treatment meets your needs. If you arrive late, we may have to reduce your treatment time. We’ll do our best to avoid that, but it’s not always possible.

Medical conditions

When making your reservation, please advise us of any health conditions, allergies or injuries that might affect your experience, including any illness, injury or skin conditions to ensure your treatment is tailored accordingly.

Spa attire

We recommend that you arrive in comfortable clothes, so that when your treatment is complete, you can leave feeling great.

When you are taken through to the treatment room, we will ask you to slip into our robe (please keep your underwear on underneath). If you are having a foot treatment, please wear open toe shoes.

Couples treatments

You can share your Avoca Cosmetology spa experience.

Mention that you would like a double room when you make your booking.

Spa Etiquette

Avoca Cosmetology is a mobile phone and smoke free environment.

We also ask that you respect other treatments that may be in progress by keeping the vibe in our Spa quiet and mellow.

Our Promise and Guarantee and How we handle product return or Customer dissatisfaction.

This section is here to set out the expectations for both you and us.

We strive to excel at what we do, because we want you to come back. We are always happy to make some minor adjustments to certain services to suit you or your condition.

It is our job, to advise you on how you can prolong and add value to the performed service. Don’t take it the wrong way. We wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t let you know what to expect and how best to ‘home care’ yourself after receiving your treatment.

If we are discussing products with you – we are by no means wanting to push something onto you that you don’t need or don’t want. We are simply trying to pass on some of our knowledge to you, so can have the best outcome or result possible.

We will also do our best to give you a clear expectation of how long you should expect your treatment to last after receiving it – but please use your common sense, of course we cannot guarantee how long your nail polish will last?!

Every body is different and that’s what make the world exciting but it also means that your body/ lifestyle may impact your treatment results, for this reason we cant make guarantees.

In the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with your treatment, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible so we may make it right for you.

We love what we do, and we hope you do too. We ALWAYS conduct in a professional, respectful and fun manner and ask that you do the same.

We get sad, when we get disrespected. It isn’t fun!

So, we’d prefer you moved on, if you decide to carry on being a cranky pants. Sorry.

Product Guarantee

We offer a product satisfaction guarantee – if you purchase a product from us and the product is unsuitable due to reaction/ allergy, faulty packaging or the product was not as explained. Please bring the product back to us within 7 days of purchase to have it exchanged or a salon credit applied.

Empty products will not be accepted.

from our lovely customers

Thank you to the INCREDIBLY TALENTED girls at Avoca for my brow wax and lash tint ! First time trying a new salon is always nerve racking- but the staff knew their products inside out and all girls are wonderful mix of professionalism and reassurance, they listened to my (no doubt) over fussy requests and delivered THE BEST BROWS I have ever rocked ! Much love girls!

Kendall James

Had a nice massage by one of the girls, then she did my eyebrows and eyelashes. Great job and she was lovely, nice place and great location also.

Sally Powell Palmer

“Definitely recommend for an eyebrow wax! Amazing results!”

SHR – Super Hair Reduction Laser

SHR technology is 100% pain free. The skin is heated gently, at a higher frequency. Because the heat applied to the skin is more gradual and gentler, it results in less trauma on the skin and is suitable for everyone, no matter the skin tone and even those with sensitive skin. Both coarse and fine hairs are targeted, and the removal process is more thorough and longer lasting.

LED light lounge session - from $60



Teeth whitening involves lifting and lightening stains on the enamel of your teeth, to make them whiter. Teeth whitening will lighten the existing colour of teeth by many shades, however can only achieve a shade as light as your natural teeth colour.

Teeth whitening involves oxidation reaction that breaks apart the staining compounds and lifts them from the teeth.
Using a led teeth whitening machine accelerates the teeth whitening gel, causing it to react faster when breaking down stains.   The use of the led teeth whitening accelerator lamp speeds up the process of the molecular breakdown of the whitening gel which makes the oxidization of the stains occur more rapidly.
