  • Provider’s services are often a subjective art and Provider has a unique vision, with an ever-evolving style and technique;
  • Provider will use their artistic judgment when providing Services for Client, which may not include strict adherence to Client’s suggestions;
  • Although Provider will use reasonable efforts to incorporate Client’s suggestions and desires when providing Client with the Services, Provider shall have final say regarding the aesthetic judgment and artistic quality of the Services;
