Late & No Show Policy

It is our policy to manage appointment no-shows, late cancellations, and late arrivals to effectively keep our workflow running to best serve all of our customers. The Pigtails & Crewcut’s goal is to provide excellent service and attention to each client in a timely manner. Our typical appointment is booked for 15 minutes with 5 minutes in between each appointment to clean and sanitize. Late arrivals and no shows impact our ability to serve all of our clients.

We strongly encourage that all clients plan to arrive 5 minutes PRIOR to the scheduled appointment start.

For our part, we will do our best to reach out to you if you are running behind to gather your ETA. Please understand that we may need to rearrange appointments or there may be a wait as we do our best to minimize the impact to other clients.

  1. Appointments must be cancelled at least 2 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time. Notification allows us to better utilize appointments for other clients in need of our services and better manage our stylist’s efficiency.
  2. In the event a client arrives late, Pigtails & Crewcuts will do our best to accommodate the appointment.  This may include seating another client for an on time start, but we will honor your appointment as quickly as possible thereafter.  Further, there may be a wait required to allow for accommodations.  If the appointment was a stylist request, we may not be able to honor the specified stylist depending on their availability. If the client arrival is more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start of the appointment, the entire appointment has been missed.  Pigtails & Crewcuts will do our best to work the appointment back in or we will reschedule for a future salon visit, if available. Please understand we CANNOT hold appointments for late arrivals, if there is another booking in the store available for immediate service we will seat that client to avoid a domino of running behind.
  3. We highly recommend downloading the Pigtails & Crewcuts app to easily and effectively manage all of your appointments with us.

We appreciate your consideration in doing your best to arrive on time for your appointment.  We understand issues arise out of your control and we will do our best to accommodate for those instances, we expect your patience with us as we work to ensure the best experience for both our clients and our staff. 

Pigtails & Crewcuts Children’s Hair Salon Now Open in Happy Valley/Norterra

July 22, 2021, Atlanta, GA — Michael and Yvette Stumpf’s path to opening the new Pigtails & Crewcuts salon in Happy Valley could be better described as a journey, three years in the making. Sometimes the best opportunities do not come quickly or easily. 

Michael and Yvette met, married and had their oldest son in Los Angeles, CA. After moving to New Orleans, LA and having a second son, the Stumpf’s visited a children’s dentist and loved the kid-centric approach. 

“We loved it,” Michael recalls, “We realized it was a great idea–-making an often unpleasant situation for children as enjoyable as possible.” Another hair salon not far from their home closed and the light bulb went off. They loved working with kids. Michael’s mother was a hairdresser with two salons of her own when he was young. They decided they would turn that closed hair salon into a children’s salon. This would be the first bump in the road; the space they were hoping for had been leased to another owner and would be gutted. 

This event led the Stumpfs to research other children’s hair salons. It was then that they found Pigtails & Crewcuts. After visiting the Pigtails & Crewcuts in Baton Rouge, they knew it would be a great fit. Michael and Yvette called the franchise office, intent on opening a salon in New Orleans. 

Unfortunately, tragedy struck in April 2018, when Michael’s father in Phoenix, AZ, passed away unexpectedly. They immediately knew they would be moving back to Phoenix, Michael’s hometown, to be closer to family. They called the team at Pigtails & Crewcuts to let them know they wouldn’t be able to continue with the process in Louisiana. 

“They told us to take all the time we needed and informed us that they would be there for us when the time was right,” said Michael. “They also informed us they did not have a single salon in Arizona.” Surprised and thrilled at the opportunity, they decided to move forward with a three salon deal to bring Pigtails & Crewcuts to various areas in the Phoenix area. 

In December 2018, Michael and Yvette decided on the Norterra/Happy Valley area of north Phoenix to open their first location.  They found their perfect location off of Happy Valley Road that same month.  Construction of their brand new building was to begin in June 2019 with a February 2020 grand opening. After several unforeseen delays with permitting, the contractors began work in February 2020– just before the pandemic hit. With everything shut down and the contractors unable to work, they were delayed for months again. “This hasn’t stopped us before; we weren’t going to let it stop us now. We were going to open this salon no matter what,” Michael remembered. 

Powering through more roadblocks and delays due to supply shortages, the Stumpfs never gave up hope that the kids’ salon they began talking about in February 2018 would open. And it did, three years and three months later. The Pigtails & Crewcuts – Happy Valley opened for its first haircuts on May 25, 2021. 

“It was 100% worth the wait,” said Michael and Yvette, “We love this community and look forward to serving the children and their families for many years to come.” 

Pigtails & Crewcuts – Happy Valley is located at 1730 W Happy Valley Road, Ste 105, Phoenix, AZ 85085. The salon is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To learn more about the salon and its services, visit, call 602-448-4328 or follow the salon’s Facebook page
