Should I wash my hair before my appointment?

It is not necessary to wash before an appointment as most services include a shampoo service. We recommend arriving with day one or two hair worn down in its natural state or how you style day to day. {For dry cuts/trims} come with your hair down (not in a pony/bun) day one or two hair and how you wear your hair day-to-day. We need to see your natural texture to properly dry-cut your hair.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Please TEXT 512-666-9104 or contact your stylist directly to cancel or reschedule your appointment if less than 48 hours from your appointment time. If you booked online through Vagaro and it is more than 48 hours from your appointment time you can cancel or reschedule through the booking site.

Please understand our cancelation policy is not in place to profit or reprimand our clients. As service providers cancellations equate to a loss of expected income that directly impacts an individual. To be fair to all clients, we are unable to make different decisions for different clients regardless of circumstances.

You will not be billed if you cancel or reschedule at least 48 hours before your appointment time.

50% of the service price will be billed for late cancelation/rescheduling (Less than 48 hours)

100% of the service will be billed for no shows or same day cancelation/rescheduling.

Appointments for color correction services or appointment times exceeding 5 hours require a $250 non-refundable deposit. If the appointment is canceled or rescheduled the deposit is forfeited and another is required to book. Our appointments are confirmed 72 hours in advance of your appointment via email and text.

Please TEXT 512-666-9104 to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

Can I bring a guest or child to my appointment?

Please come to your appointment alone. Motive Hair is a small studio space with four styling chairs. We have limited space and additional guests can pose a safety issue (this includes children). If you are dropping off your teen for an appointment you are welcome to stay for the consultation portion of the appointment. We have a small waiting area in our outdoor foyer or you can visit one of the coffee shops or restaurants nearby during their appointment. We write this policy without the intent of offending, and hope that you will aid us in keeping our salon a safe environment.
