If you have a cough, fever, feel sick or have any other symptoms, please do not come, cancel your appointment. Please be sure to come to the shop with clean washed hair and good hygiene before you enter.
Please arrive on time! We will call or text you if we are ready early. If you arrive and someone is still in the shop in your barber’s chair, please be patient as the barber finishes as each haircut and barber take different amounts of time and quality in our #1 priority. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late we may not have enough time for the service.
Due to the size of our shop only the customers getting haircuts are permitted to wait inside. If someone is driving you, please have them wait in the car. If they need to assist you, please have them do so and then wait outside. We can also assist.
Although we prefer cash and correct change as payment if you pre-pay with credit please do so before arrival using the link or pay by credit/debit feature. Our booking company adds a fee and deducts a percentage of your payment from us. Cash is king and we reserve the right to charge a processing fee to cover our credit card processing expenses on top of the service and booking companies fees.
At the end of booking it will ask about keeping in touch. Please say yes to receive notifications about your appointment. You will receive a confirmation to the # and/or email you provided, please be sure to accept notifications/cookies from our booking software when making your appointment. You can make changes to your appointment using the links provided in the email. If you did not get a confirmation text or email you most likely don’t have an appointment if you didn’t opt out of receiving them. Printing or screenshotting an appointment that has not been completed with all the steps and information needed will not work. The most common reason for not getting a confirmation is that you did not fill out all the information and hit the pay in person or credit/debit button or typed in wrong information. If you still have questions text or call or email us!
We have a pay it forward box for cash donations to help those in need. If you need help paying take some and if you have extra leave some! We also cut at various community events. Email for more info!

Why is the time I selected not available now? When you select a time it gives you 10 minutes to complete the process. If you click back on your browser or refresh or close the window it will not show that appointment again for 10 minutes. This is to prevent multiple people from selecting the same time.
Why is the first available time shown not available when I select the service I need? Each service has a set time, when you select the service or services, the times that this service can be booked will show up. A Fade or Hot Towel Shave takes more time than a Beard Trim as an an example, so if the barber only has a 15 minute time slot it will only let you book a beard trim.
