**A Quick History**

July 2009: Mane Message was Founded by Olivia Hayward in Santa Barbara, California. Olivia was going to school full time, interning and nannying. She needed a creative outlet desperately. She decided to put her design and photography skills to use and opened her Etsy shop.

August 2009 - May 2011: Olivia was a student at Pitzer College studying Media Studies and Studio Art in Los Angeles. After opening her Etsy shop her hand tie dyed hair ties and headbands went viral quickly. She ran Mane Message out of her tiny dorm room (seriously teeny) making all the hair ties she could in her free time.

May 2011 - November 2011: After graduating Olivia moved to Oakland, California and was able to focus on Mane Message full time. She continued to grow the business and hired her first employee, her brother Sam, to help her tie dye elastic.

December 2011 - March 2013: Olivia moved into a turn-of-the-century 1-bedroom apartment in Berkeley and for the first time had plenty of space to create new work. She was able to hire more production helpers who allowed her to sell Mane Message to wholesale clients all over the world.

April 2013 - March 2015: Mane Message moved into it's own Oakland workspace and focused on launching print hair ties, bobby pins and wire tie dyed headbands. Mane Message also participated it's first ever trade shows during the summer of 2014 and met a lot of amazing small business owners along the way.

Present: Olivia is focusing on expanding the Mane Message product line by introducing rare vintage French barrettes and other accessories.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
DEFAULT SHIPPING SPEED:
I ship USPS First-Class Mail® Parcel (2-5 days) in a package that is size appropriate.

SHIPPING UPGRADE:
I do offer shipping upgrades. Please contact me for a quote based on your needs.

INSURANCE:
My packages are not shipped with insurance, but it can be provided for an additional fee.

I can also upgrade your shipping speed from USPS First-Class Mail, which takes 2-5 business days to arrive via USPS Priority or Express. Please let me know your time frame and I'll provide you with a quote.

Please note that shipping upgrades do not bypass the processing time that is outlined above.

ADDRESS CHANGE:
If you accidentally entered the wrong address when filling out your transaction don’t panic, it happens to the best of us. Please contact me ASAP to correct the address.

If for some reason I have already shipped your package you will be responsible for contacting USPS and if the package gets sent back to me you will need to pay for return shipping.

TRACKING:
When your order ships you should receive an email that includes your USPS tracking number.

OTHER NOTES ABOUT SHIPPING:
Once I drop your package off at the Post Office it's delivery speed is out of Mane Message's control.

I'm happy to help you locate your tracking information and assist you with the shipping process, but please keep in mind that USPS is a separate entity from Mane Message.

Mane Message is not responsible for any USPS lost packages. Please contact USPS if you fear your package has is lost in the mail. It is not Mane Message's responsibility to contact USPS about a lost/missing package. I can provide insurance for your packages if you are worried about a non-delivery.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
I do provide international shipping services. Please respect that I cannot declare your custom forms as a "gift" and/or state that the package is worth less than it is.

I also ask that international customers are patient when it comes to the arrival of their goods. It can take up to a month to receive your package from Mane Message if it's being shipped abroad.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Regarding USPS custom numbers: It is normal for international packages to appear to have stopped being updated on the customs number when they leave the USA (often will stop being tracked in OAKLAND, CA). This is due to the fact that once the package leaves the USA it gets transferred to your local postal service and is no longer scanned using USPS's technology. Do not worry if this happens to your customs number. If you are concerned about the time it is taking please contact your country's postal service for more information. Mane Message cannot do this for you.
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm happy to give refunds if you are not 100% satisfied with your order.

Please understand that you might have to pay for the return shipping, but it really depends on the particular circumstance.

Please contact me here on Etsy or at olivia [!at] manemessage.com if you are at all unsatisfied with your order. I value my customer service and want every one of my customers to be happy with their transaction.
Additional policies and FAQs
1. All of Mane Message's products are created in a non-smoking environment.

2. I wash my hair ties in laundry detergent to make sure the dye I use doesn't bleed on my customers. If this might upset your personal allergies please let me know and we can work together to make accommodations based on your needs.

3. I am more than happy to make custom orders. Just message me and we can discuss your ideas. Examples of custom orders would be if you wanted a special color, size or amount.

4. I do sell wholesale. Please message me for pricing or email me at olivia [!at] manemessage.com
