Treatwell is the leading online booking platform for hair and beauty in Europe. Headquartered in London, the group was founded by Lopo Champalimaud in 2008. It now employs over 500 people across Europe, with over 20,000 salons and spas listed. We believe there is a better way to find and book your hair and beauty services. More choice and the confidence to try new things. We want to make booking beauty, styling and wellness appointments simple, effortless and fast – around the clock. It’s beauty to the people, no matter what you choose.
Today, Treatwell is the largest hair and beauty bookings website in Europe. We’re an eclectic group of 500 people working in offices throughout Europe, with over 20,000 local partners. It amounts to one amazing company: a 24/7 beauty bookings platform that puts customers and salon managers in control, lets you book at times and prices that suit you, and gives you all the style know-how you need to look and feel amazing. We're more than a smarter booking platform. We're the place where you can express yourself, every day.
What we’re not:
- We don’t own salons or spas.
- We don’t manufacture cosmetics.
- We’re just people who are passionate about hair and beauty.
Treatwell gives salons access to their own online diary system so they can independently control their calendar and on-site availability. We teach them to use the software, to synchronise it with their own digital diary (if they opt not to use it as their main management system) and to keep their appointment information up to date. This includes training on blocking out time slots that have been filled, as well as time periods when the venue may be closed.
As a result, all appointments showing on both our site and app should be bookable. If you do encounter inaccurate availability listed on site, please don't hesitate to let us know and we will get in touch with the venue to correct matters as soon as possible.
Treatwell Gift Cards are valid for online bookings and eVoucher purchases made via treatwell.co.uk or the Treatwell App. Simply browse and book in at one of over thousands of venues nationwide. Click here to read all about our Gift Cards.
We hope that the venues we work with are up to scratch, but if you think otherwise, you can let them know. It is essential that you try to take up any objections you have at the time with the venue itself, as that's the best way of getting these things smoothed over. First try to speak to the owner or manager – often misunderstandings, mistakes or problems can be addressed or rectified right away by the venue themselves.
Failing that, please write to our Customer Care team, providing the following information:
- Order reference
- Date of appointment
- Summary of complaint
- Outcome of feedback to owner/manager
Please be brief and bullet-point your comments. We will then take up the matter with the venue, and will try our best to resolve the matter within 30 days.
We send out the confirmation email as soon as you have completed your order, honest!
They do vanish sometimes into the world-wide-black-hole somewhere – we suspect it lands up in the same place as all those missing pens. If you don't seem to have your email, please check your junk mail folder first. If you do find it there, please label it as 'Not junk' and add the address to your accepted emails list – that should stop it happening next time.
If it is still not there, the instructions to I have lost my booking confirmation email should be helpful.
No problem, just email Customer Care, telling us:
- the email address used to complete your purchase
- date of booking
- details of your purchase (spa/salon name, treatment, price etc)
We'll then resend your confirmation email and you'll be able to enjoy some well-deserved pampering!
Sorry it hasn't got there yet.
eVouchers should arrive as soon as you complete your order – see the suggestions for finding a missing booking confirmation email if yours hasn't arrived.
First of all be aware that if it is a popular venue, phones may be a bit busy – have you tried sending them an email? If you still can't get through, write to us at email@example.com, supplying us with the following:
- order reference number
- 3 Preferred date(s) and times
- treatment (if one of an option)
- venue (if one of an option)
- contact telephone number
We'll forward your details on to our contact at the spa/salon, with a request for them to confirm with you as soon as possible.
When booking an appointment or purchasing an eVoucher, at Check Out you will see a box that says Promo Codes / Gift Cards. Simply enter your code in exactly the same format that you received it, ensuring there are no spaces or gaps, click Enter Code and it will automatically add it to your order.
We hope you won't need to cancel your booking, but we're here to help if you do. When requesting an amendment or cancellation you need to contact us via email or phone.
- Reason why you need to cancel or amend
- Booking order reference
- Contact number and email address
- Any other information we may find useful
Before you contact us, please read the Treatwell Refund and Cancellation Policy to ensure you are eligible to amend or cancel your booking.
Once we've received and processed your request we will either reschedule your appointment, transfer your booking or issue you with a credit note so that you can use it to purchase an alternative offer when it suits you.
If you require any further assistance regarding cancellations and amendments please feel free to contact our Customer Care team or call 0330 100 3515 if you'd prefer a chat.

Reviews often come down to personal opinion so it’s hard to prove them ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ but the first step is to take a quick look at our community guidelines page to see if the review has broken them. If they’ve been naughty enough to threaten, use bad language or you can prove they’ve used a false identity, drop us an email and it’ll be gone quick as a flash.
Alternatively if you are a business, you can use this chance to show the Treatwell Community how good you are at dealing with misunderstandings. Comment on the review with your feedback, and a useful response that deals with the issue will be sitting on the page for all to see.
