How to order
Purchasing on Gainfort Hair and Beauty web site is simple, quick and secure.

You can also shop by Brand by using the ‘Brands’ filter on the left hand side of the page or by using the ‘Tags Trending’ filter. If you are looking for more information on the product, simple click on the image of the product or the Read More button beneath.
To add a single product to your order, click add to cart without entering a total then it will automatically add just one item to your shopping cart. If you want to order more that one of each item, enter the total amount you want to order in the box beside the product and click on the “add to cart” button beside the product. This places the items in your shopping basket, and shows you a confirmation message. To see what you have in your shopping cart, simply click on the ‘View Cart’ tab at the top of the page.
To remove a product from your basket use the ‘X’ button or to adjust the quantity you can choose more or less by using the plus and minus symbols on each product. When you have added to your cart all the products you wish to buy, you will be ready to complete your order.
Please check that you’ve selected the required size of each product, and placed the required quantity and any related products you need in your cart. Check the total value of your order. As a retail customer the total you see is inclusive of VAT. If you are logged in as a Trade Customer, the VAT will be added to your total at the end before you complete a payment transaction.

Vat Free Sale Days Explained
Throughout the year, we randomly run VAT free day sales. This means we discount selected items in line with the rate of VAT. The VAT is still paid on these items, the discount you receive is an internal one provided by us.
For example, if a product costs €10.00 +VAT the total you normally pay is €12.30. During our VAT Free Sales, we reduce the price down to €8.13 +VAT so the total you pay is €10.00, which is the same as the original price, but without the VAT.
VAT Free discount does not apply to delivery charges and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, Multibuy or discount. Offer excludes GHD, NSI, Gellux, a selection of the TIGI range gift vouchers, training books, courses and kits. VAT registered customers can claim back the vat on their invoice. To comply with the law, we must still charge VAT on the invoice, therefore we offer a discount instead. Goods purchased on VAT free days must be paid for on the day – no credit is given on VAT free purchases.
To be first to hear about our VAT free days and other sale events, like us on Facebook and Instagram, or submit your name and number through our Support form using the Subject line – Please notify me by SMS about upcoming VAT free days.
