Hat Hire Terms & Conditions:

Please read through the following terms and conditions under which our Hat Hire Studio offers you the use of its hats. By hiring a hat from the Studio, you agree that you have read and accept same.

  1. The hat / headpiece remains the property of the Studio at all times.
  2. The full hat hire fee is payable on reservation.
  3. In the event that the booked headpiece has not been returned from a previous hire or has been returned in a damaged condition immediately prior to the booked date, the customer will be given the option of choosing an alternative headpiece or the Hire Fee paid will be refunded. The Studio is not liable for any loss or damage caused as a result of a hat or headpiece not being available due to circumstances outside of its control.
  4. Cancellation Policy: Once a headpiece has been booked, a refund will not be given for the hire fee if the booking is cancelled. However, if at least 7 days notice is given before the event date, a credit for the hire fee paid, will be given for a cancellation, which can be used towards another hire by that customer within the following 12 months. This credit is not transferable.
  5. Once a headpiece has been collected, it is considered a hire, even if it not worn or your event is cancelled and there will be no refund.
  6. The HIRE DURATION is THREE days (unless by prior agreement), and the headpiece should be returned on the next working day after the event date, by appointment. If the headpiece is not returned within this period, there will be an extra charge for an extra hire (calculated on the basis of one Hat Hire Fee for each extra hire duration of three days for which the headpiece has remained unreturned), and the Refundable Security Deposit (see below) will be forfeited and taken into account in the calculation of the amount due.
  7. The REFUNDABLE SECURITY DEPOSIT will be refunded on the safe return of the headpiece (and hat box), provided it is returned within the Hire Duration and in the same condition to that in which it was hired.
  8. In cases where the headpiece is not returned or there is damage to the headpiece (including grease, make-up, rain damage, or damage to or loss of embellishment) or if it is not returned within the hire duration, the Refundable Security Deposit will not be refunded and will be forfeited. While Irish weather is always unpredictable, care should be taken not to expose a hat/headpiece to the rain and it should be kept under an umbrella at all times as all hats/headpieces are very vulnerable if subjected to rain. Care should be taken if the headpiece is on elastic, as they rarely break but if your hair is long, pop it up in a bun when putting on the headpiece to prevent stretching it too much, causing it to snap. If a headpiece is damaged beyond repair, or is not returned, the customer will obliged to pay the cost of replacement and the security deposit will be taken into account in calculating the balance payable. Under no circumstance should the customer attempt to clean any hats themselves.
  9. All hat boxes must be returned and in the same condition as when collected. Please do not attach tape etc to the box.
  10. The Studio may modify the price, content or nature of the hat hire service at any time. We may provide notice of any such changes by email, text message or by publishing them on this website. The Studio may discontinue the Hat Hire Service at any time in which circumstance, the hat hire fee paid will be refunded.
