Due to a high rate of no-shows and late cancellations, a credit card will be required in order to secure your appointment slot. Please refer to our cancellation policy (below) for more information.
Curly hair is best cut dry, as we don't wear our hair wet on a daily basis; we wear it dry. Therefore the curls are cut where they live. Not every curl is the same even on the same head, so each curl must be cut individually. You may notice that you have tighter curls at your nape and looser curls in your crown area, or vice versa. When we cut dry and without tension we eliminate the variance issue.
Your First Appointment:
For your first appointment with us, and every haircut appointment after that, please arrive at the salon with cleansed, loose, dry hair that is free of any braids, bobby pins, clips, or bands. We want to see your hair in its natural state. Please feel free to use your current products for the best curl definition. Depending on the definition of your curls we may cut first, then do the Product Application/Curl Set. If your curls are not properly hydrated and defined we may choose to do the Hydrating Curly Wash first if time allows, but this is not guaranteed. Showing up to your appointment without having followed these instructions will possibly result in a cancelled appointment (for which must still be paid), or the void of guarantee.
Included in your initial appointment will be time spent discussing your curls and the proper care and maintenance of your hair. We will do a curl assessment, products will be recommended for your specific curl type and you will learn the correct techniques for the application of those products. You will receive an Asheville Hair Design Prescription with written instructions that you can follow at home. If you have been using products containing Silicone or heavy oils or waxes, we will recommend that we do a Curl Detox when we cleanse your hair. This will guarantee your best curl results. Our goal at Asheville Hair Design is that not only will you love your hair when you leave the salon but also that you have been empowered to achieve the same results at home!
Please be advised, prices may vary depending on length of hair and the time your appointment takes. Generally, if you have exceptionally thick hair, or hair more than 3 inches below your shoulders, this can add anywhere from a half-hour to an hour to your appointment, and will be charged accordingly.
Due to a high rate of no-shows and late cancellations, a credit card will be required in order to secure your appointment slot. We require that all appointments be confirmed no later than 48 hours before the scheduled start time (for cutting/styling) or 72 hours (any appointments including hair color) before the start time). If proper notice is not given and the appointment slot cannot be filled, a fee of 50% of the failed appointment will be charged to your credit card on file. Same-day cancellations are nearly impossible to fill and will be considered a no-show. No-Shows will be charged 100% for their failed appointment. As a courtesy, you will receive a Confirmation Email 3 days before your appointment and a Confirmation Text 2 days before your appointment. We recommend that you schedule your next appointment prior to leaving the salon to ensure you have the appointment time that you most desire.
