ACCOUNT, PAYMENT, AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION
A. General Information
All prices listed throughout our website are in US dollars (USD).
Payments for our Services are processed through a payment gateway powered by Stripe (www.stripe.com), a third-party payment processor. We reserve the right to change our third-party payment processor at our discretion. Your financial information is not stored on any of our computers or servers. Please do not send us financial information via e-mail, contact form, or live chat.
B. Billing and Account Information
In order to access certain Services, such as purchasing our products, you must have a valid credit card, or other payment method that is accepted by Stripe and you must authorize us to process the appropriate amount.
C. Right To Refuse Service
We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel items purchased per person, per household, or per order. Some reasons why we may not process a transaction include if we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, if shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, or if we determine, in our sole judgment, that an order appears to be placed by a dealer, reseller, or distributor. We will not be liable to you or any third party for refusing to process a transaction or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
D. Discount Codes
We may occasionally offer discount codes that apply discounts to certain specified purchases. Discount codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, unless specified otherwise, they cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount code or offers, and must be redeemed by the date stated, if provided.Additional conditions of use relating to any discount code will be specified at the time of issue.
E. Gift Cards
Our gift cards are electronically mailed as soon as payment has cleared. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all information provided is accurate and up-to-date. We do not take responsibility for stolen, lost, or deleted gift cards, or if the gift card is used by someone other than the intended recipient because of an incorrect email address. We also do not take responsibility if a gift card cannot be delivered to the recipient's email address due to spam filters, firewalls, the capacity of the recipient's mailbox, or any other factors outside of our control. All gift card purchases are final sale.
A. Products, Pricing, and Availability
Prices, specifications, and availability of products are subject to change without notice. We will not be liable to you or any third party if a product is or becomes unavailable.
We try to display the colors of our products as accurately as possible on our website. We also make every effort to match the color of our products to any custom color or signature color submitted by you. However, there are a number of factors beyond our control that may affect the result. For example, we cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s display of any color is accurate, that the images you provide to us are of adequate quality, or that there isn’t some other miscommunication about the color. Accordingly, we are not responsible for any differences or issues in the final color of any our products, including custom color pieces or signature color pieces, resulting from poor quality image submissions, inaccurate monitor displaces, or miscommunications beyond our control.
Additionally, since our natural tone hair is 100% virgin human hair and each individual piece comes from a different donor, we cannot guarantee the hair color or exact texture of those products. Our natural virgin hair comes in a straight, wavy, or curly pattern and the color ranges between a natural 1B and 2, as shown on our website.
Custom color and signature color orders are final sale. If you are dissatisfied with the color of your purchase, please use the Contact Us form.
C. Manufacturing Times
All Tharen products are custom made and take 3-8 weeks from when the order is placed to manufacture. Orders may only be cancelled within 48 hours from when the order is placed. After that 48-hour period, the order may not be cancelled for any reason. Once the product is finished, it will ship to the customer within 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays).
Approximate manufacturing times:
- Wefts - 3-4 weeks
- Clip-ins & Tape-ins - 3-4 weeks

D. Application and Maintenance of Our Products
Experienced professionals should apply our products and they must be properly cared for once applied. Further, certain products, such as tape-ins, can only be applied by licensed cosmetologists and those cosmetologists should always be trained in the application of the specific product. You are responsible for how any product you purchase through our Services is applied. It is your responsibility to retain a properly qualified professional to apply the product, to ensure that all appropriate standards for application are followed, that all recommended preliminary tests are done prior to application, and that the wearer of the product is compatible with the product in every way. Improper application can result in injuries, hair loss, bald spots, skin irritation, infections, and other harm, as well as damage to the product. Further, each item comes with detailed instructions for care and these instructions must be carefully followed to ensure the item’s longevity. We accept no responsibility for application procedures, mistakes made during the application process, or other issues related to improper application or maintenance, and any damage or harm that may result from the foregoing. We emphasize the necessity of following approved standards for application and maintenance with all of our products.
Orders will be shipped via a leading shipping carrier to the address that you provide. Please check the address information on your order before confirmation and checkout. Incomplete or incorrect address information is a major cause of shipment delays. It is your responsibility to include all of the required information needed to deliver your package (e.g., your complete address, any apartment number, zip code etc.).
B. Failed Delivery and Refused Addresses
