The Split Appointment feature for services is designed specifically for hair stylists and salons to allow you to take appointments during the processing gap when coloring or dying a client's hair.
For businesses with the terms "hair" or "salon" in their name, this feature should automatically be available. For all others, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enable the feature, if needed.
