Is parking free?  Yes! We are conveniently located at 1600 8th Ave South in Nashville, Tennessee. You will find us on the corner of 8th and Alloway, directly across the street from Reservoir Park. There is ample parking in both the front and rear of our building, as well as street parking along Alloway.

Are children welcome?  Yes. We provide wonderful and fun hair cuts for kiddos. Although, due to risk of accidents and liabilities, BBC Nashville requests children visit by appointment only. 

Can I bring friends/family with me to my appointment?  Due to limited space we ask that you arrive alone for your appointment. Kick back and enjoy some "me time"!

Are pets welcome?  BBC Nashville allows servicve animals only. In the instance of an emotional support animal, we ask for proof of certification upon entering. We also kindly request you call ahead so we are able to confirm we don't have any guests (or staff) with potential allergies booked at the same time.

Cell phone use policy  In order to create the most relaxing experience for all of our guests, we kindly ask that you turn your cell phone on vibrate when you arrive. We also ask that you do not take any phone calls while relaxing at BBC Nashville. We guarantee to entertain you with the antics of our eclectic staff and killer house curated playlists. But If you plan on listening to any music or watching any videos on your mobile device, we request you bring a pair of headphones, as to not disturb any other guests. 

Do I have to pay for a consultation?  Absolutely not. We want you to take a "Studio Tour", meet your Artist, and see what we are about before deciding to entrust your image to us. Our consultation and tours are 30 minutes.

What happens if I am running late?  We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals. Calling ahead gives us the best opportunity to evaluate the situation. However, calling ahead does not always guarantee that we will be able to provide service, especially if your arrival is later than 15 minutes. Guests arriving more than 15 minutes late will be considered a no-show (see policy below). BBC Express Bar appointments more than 10 minutes late will be considered a no-show.

What happens if I just can't make my appointment?  The salon business is an appointment-based business. We understand that sometimes your schedule will change unexpectedly. We ask that you give us 24-hour notice if you must cancel or reschedule a reservation. This allows us the opportunity to contact guests on our waiting list. No-shows will be rebooked at the discretion of management. We would prefer that you reschedule an appointment, rather that just not showing up.

What happens if I miss my appointment?  No-shows will be charged 50% of the service they missed, if they reschedule for the same service (at the discretion of management). If the service is not rescheduled, the guest will be responsible for paying 100% of the missed service. If the guest reschedules the missed appointment, and does not arrive for a second time, they will be responsible for paying 100% of both missed services. 

What is the easiest way for me to make an appointment?  To accommodate your scheduling needs, we strongly recommend that you reserve your next appointment before leaving the salon. This is the best way to ensure the time and date most convenient for your next visit. If at any time you feel you would be more comfortable or better served by another member of our team, please let us know.

What happens if I accidentally have a NSF check returned?  We understand when accidents happen at the bank. Unfortunately, we, as a business, are charged fees when these incidents occur. A $25 return check fee is applied to the total cost of the check and we thank you for your prompt attention in the matter.

Color services and hair prep If you are coming in for a color service, please make sure your hair only has everyday styling aid products in it. If you arrive for your appointment with any powdered root cover up products applied this will result in your hair needing to be washed and blown dry before professional color is applied. A $50 shampoo/blowout fee will be added to your appointment.
