Returns and Exchange Policy
Thank you for shopping with us! We hope you LOVE your HAWT MESS items but understand that sometimes items need to be exchanged. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we are here to help!
Merchandise can be returned for exchange or store credit within 10 days of receiving your order.
Holiday Orders (Starting November 26th ) have an extended exchange timeframe. Those items may be returned/exchanged through January 10th.
We Offer $6.95 Flat Rate Shipping on All Orders. (International orders do not apply)
Love it but need another color, size or pattern? We're happy to exchange as long as that item is still in stock. Please include the filled out Return Form (included with your order) along with a $7.00 Shipping Payment. Exchanges that cannot be fulfilled (due to changing inventory), will be issued store credit. Items that are returned without the $7.00 Shipping Payment, will be issued store credit.
Store credit will be issued for the purchase price of all eligible returned merchandise. (Please see below on eligibility of returns and the process of returning). We no longer offer refunds - NO exceptions. Once a return is received and processed, an online code will be emailed to the email address used on the original order. This code can then be redeemed online for a future purchase. There is NO expiration on store credit.
Afterpay orders can not be returned in boutiques. Afterpay will be notified of your return and refund payment accordingly once your return is received and processed by our warehouse.
To be eligible for an exchange/return, please make sure that:
Returns must be postmarked within 10 days of receiving the order.
The product is in its original condition and packaging.
The product isn't used or damaged.

Lost/Stolen/Damaged Packages: Once a package ships from our warehouse, it becomes the liability of the post office. Hawt Mess Boutique is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged packages. All packages are sent with a GPS tracking embedded in the barcode.
