Why do I need to create an account?

An account is required so your online check in can be linked to your physical visit when you arrive at the store. This allows the Stylists to mark you as arrived in the system and mark you as "on deck" for your haircut.

When can I check in for a haircut?

Online Check In is available five minutes after the store is open and ends roughly 30 minutes before the store closes. The 30-minute window at closing is an estimate because wait times are based on our Stylist's average service time, so it's important to check the wait time of the store you want to visit and compare it to the store's closing time.

I'm all checked in for my haircut. What do I need to do when I arrive at the store?

Upon arrival, you'll see your name on the waitlist, but make sure you sign in at the self-service kiosk to confirm you have arrived. You can also speak to a Stylist who can assist and confirm your arrival.

How do I cancel my check-in?

I want to bring my kid(s) for a haircut. Do I need to create an additional account?

You can request multiple haircuts via the app or the website, so there is no need to create an account for your children or other minor family members you plan to bring with you. Once you log in, you can add additional names to your check in and will receive estimated wait times for each person. You can also check in one or more guests/family members even if you don't want services performed for yourself.

How do I choose a specific Stylist?

After searching for your location and tapping the store location icon, click to access the Stylist choice field that is currently set to "first available." A menu will appear with the list of available Stylists along with their individual wait times.
