Help and FAQs


Q: How do I obtain product samples?
A: Samples are complimentary with qualifying orders. Quantities are limited and while supplies last only. We are unable to send samples separately from orders and should a sample selection be out of stock we cannot provide an alternative. If you are unsure about which products are best for you, we suggest our Live Chat with an Artist or scheduling a Virtual appointment with an Artist.

Q: Can I place an order? Will the package be delivered?
A: Yes. However, please keep in mind that we have made adjustments in our supply chain operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our efforts to ensure the safety of our teams. This has resulted in some delivery and processing delays beyond our normal timeframes. We may also have more items out of stock or with low inventory as a result. Upcoming new product launches may also be delayed.

Q: What if I cannot return my purchase/order within the timeframe outlined in the return policy?
A: If you are unable to complete your return within the timeframe, we will work together to modify our return policy and do what’s best for our customers during this time.

Q: How do you ensure the safety of your warehouse employees?
