2.3 Your payment to us of the Deposit as specified in clause 8.6 represents an offer by you to enter into a binding contract which we are free to accept or decline at our absolute discretion. If we are unable to supply you with Goods, we will inform you of this in Writing and return the Deposit (less any expenses reasonably incurred by us as a result of processing your Order).
2.4 Subject to clause 2.3, these Terms shall become binding on you and us when we issue you with a Written Notice that confirms the details of your Order and specifies the order number that we have assigned to your Order (the “Order Confirmation”), at which point a contract shall come into existence between us. Please quote the order number in all subsequent correspondence with us relating to the Order.
2.5 We consider that these Terms and the Order Confirmation constitute the whole agreement between you and us. Any terms implied by trade, custom or course of dealing are excluded.
2.6 Any samples, drawings, or advertising we issue at any time (including during a consultation), and any illustrations contained in our catalogues or brochures (the “Discussion Materials”), are produced solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the Goods they describe and should be regarded as indicative only. Although we have made every effort to display colours accurately in the Discussion Materials, we cannot guarantee that Discussion Materials will accurately reflect the colour of Goods and your Goods may vary slightly from the Discussion Materials.
2.7 If any of these Terms are inconsistent with the Order Confirmation, the Terms shall prevail.
3. CHANGES TO ORDER OR TERMS
3.1 We may revise these Terms from time to time due to: (a) changes in how we accept payment from you; or (b) changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
3.2 If we revise these Terms under clause 3.1, we will give you fourteen (14) calendar days written notice of any changes to these Terms before they take effect and you can choose to cancel the contract in accordance with clause 12.5(b).
3.3 You may, within fourteen (14) calendar days of the day after we send you the Order Confirmation, amend an Order by providing us with Written Notice of the changes you require. If you amend an Order, your liability to us shall be limited to payment to us of all costs we reasonably incur in fulfilling the Order until we receive your amendment. We will then notify you in Writing of the details of the amended Order and specify any changes to the price of the Goods and any increase or decrease in the Deposit amount resulting from the amendment of the Order (the “Amended Order Confirmation”). Having received the Amended Order Confirmation, you may cancel your amended Order in accordance with clause 12.1 as if the Amended Order Confirmation was an Order Confirmation.

4.2 The warranty in clause 4.1 is in addition to your legal rights in relation to Goods which are faulty or which otherwise do not conform with these Terms. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
4.3 The warranty in clause 4.1 does not apply to any defect in the Goods arising from: (a) fair wear and tear; (b) wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party; (c) your use of the Goods in a way that we do not recommend; (d) your failure to follow our instructions (including any “care” information that we have provided you with); or (e) any alteration or repair you carry out without our prior written approval.
4.4 These Terms apply to any repaired or replacement Goods we supply to you in the event that the original Goods are faulty or do not otherwise conform with the Order Confirmation.
4.5 Upon request to us, we will provide you with details of maintenance services that we may be able to provide you in connection with your purchase of Goods (“Wig Maintenance”). For the avoidance of doubt, any provision of Wig Maintenance shall be at an additional cost and is not included in the price of the Goods.
5. DEFECTIVE GOODS AND RETURNS
5.1 If Goods do not conform with these Terms, please let us know as soon as possible after delivery. We will ask you to return the Goods to us at our cost and once we have checked that the Goods are actually faulty, we will: (a) provide you with a full or partial refund; (b) replace the Goods; or (c) repair the Goods, depending on what we (acting reasonably) determine in the circumstances.
5.2 Goods that conform to the Order Confirmation in all material respects may not be returned to us. No replacement, repair or full or partial refund will be offered in such an event.
6. COLLECTION AND DELIVERY
6.1 Where the Order Confirmation specifies that Goods are to be collected by you, you may collect the Goods from our premises during our working hours from the date on which we notify you that they are ready.
6.2 Where the Order Confirmation specifies that Goods are to be delivered to an address designated by you, we will despatch the Goods within seven (7) calendar days of the date on which the Order is completed. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date when we despatch the Goods. We will take reasonable steps to meet the delivery date. However, occasionally delivery may be affected by Events Outside Our Control and so cannot be guaranteed. Please see clause 11 for our responsibilities when this happens. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay and will arrange a new delivery date with you.
6.3 Fulfilment of your order shall be carried out in accordance with the details of your Order, as confirmed by us to you in the Order Confirmation as specified in clause 2.4, and the Order shall be completed either: (a) when you collect the Goods from us; or (b) when the Goods are despatched for delivery to the address designated by you, depending on what is specified in the Order Confirmation with regards to collection and delivery.
6.4 If you fail to take delivery of the Goods within seven (7) calendar days of the date on which we notify you that the Goods are ready (“Delivery Delay”), except where this failure is caused by our failure to comply with these Terms or by an event beyond your control: (a) we will store the Goods until delivery takes place; and (b) we shall have no liability to you for late delivery.
6.5 We will notify you in the event that the Delivery Delay will incur a cost and inform you of the amount of the cost.
6.6 We will take reasonable steps to pack the Goods properly and to ensure that you receive the Goods in good condition.
7. TITLE AND RISK

7.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of all sums due for the Goods, including Delivery Costs.
8. PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 Subject to clauses 8.2 and 8.4, the price of the Goods will be as set out in the Order Confirmation. Prices are liable to change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that we have confirmed in Writing.
8.2 Our prices do not include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
8.3 For the avoidance of doubt, damage to the Goods caused by: (a) wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party; (b) your use of the Goods in a way that we do not recommend; (c) your failure to follow our instructions (including any “care” documents that we have provided you with); or (d) any alteration or repair you carry out without our prior written approval, shall not constitute fair wear and tear.
8.4 The price of the Goods supplied under these Terms shall exclude the price of delivery, which will be added to the total amount due (the “Delivery Costs”). Delivery Costs shall be set out in the Order Confirmation. Please note that timescales for delivery and Delivery Costs may vary depending on the Goods to be delivered, the form of delivery requested by you in your Order and your address.
8.5 It is possible that, despite our best efforts, some Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where the Goods’ correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Goods to you. If the Goods’ correct price is higher than our stated price, we will contact you to tell you and ask for your instructions. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
8.6 A deposit of fifty (50) percent of the price of the Goods (the “Deposit”) must be paid to us no later than seven (7) calendar days after the day we send you the Order Confirmation. If any part or all of the Deposit payment is dishonoured, we may, within seven (7) working days of being notified that the Deposit payment has been dishonoured, contact you to inform you that you Deposit payment has been dishonoured and we shall stop processing your Order until full payment of the Deposit is received by us.
8.7 Payment for all Goods (excluding payment of the Deposit, which must be paid in advance of collection or delivery, as specified in clause 8.6) supplied in accordance with the Order Confirmation in all material respects must be made: (a) on Collection of the Goods; or (b) where the Goods have been ordered for Delivery, when the Goods have been despatched, whichever is specified in your Order Confirmation. For the avoidance of doubt, where the Goods have been ordered for delivery, although payment details will be required in advance, we will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch the Goods.
8.8 Payment of the Deposit and price may only be made by cash, cheque, credit card or bank transfer, or any other electronic money transfer system that we may specify from time to time and in full and in cleared funds to a bank account specified by us.
8.9 If you do not make any payment due to us by the due date for payment (as specified in clause 8.7), without limiting our cancellation rights under clause 13 or any other remedies or rights we may have, we shall charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of three (3) percent a year above the base rate of National Westminster Bank PLC from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You shall pay us interest together with the overdue amount.
8.10 Without limiting any other remedies or rights that we may have, if you do not pay us in the manner specified in clause 8.8 and/or by the time specified in clause 8.7, we may cancel or suspend any other outstanding Order of yours until you have paid the outstanding amounts owing to us.
8.11 Clause 8.9 and clause 8.10 shall not apply for the period of the dispute if you, in good faith, dispute a payment owed to us and let us know promptly after you have received the relevant invoice that you dispute it.
9. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
9.1 The copyright, design right and all other intellectual property rights in the Goods and the Goods Production Process, any materials and other documents or items that we prepare or produce for you in connection with the Goods and the Goods Production Process will belong to us absolutely.

You agree not to use the Goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity that may result from your use of the Goods for any purpose other than domestic and private use.
