Castro Valley Barbershop FAQs

Yes but if you forgot to bring cash there is an ATM right next door inside CVS. Some of the barbers do accept Venmo, Zelle and CashApp. If you scheduled your appointment online through busystyle you can pay some of the barbers through there as well. We only accept credit cards for product sales.

Each barber at MGX is self employed and can choose how much to charge and when they work. Some charge more depending on years in the industry and demand. However we do display minimum prices online and in the shop. Each barber has their own booking link with their prices displayed.

We have a parking lot right in front on the shop. If the lot is full you can park in the CVS parking lot right next door.

We recommend calling ahead for walk in availability. Appointments are prioritized and our services take about 45-60 minutes to complete which means that if the barber has 2 clients ahead of you then there will be a 2 hour wait. This also means that we don't have much time if any to squeeze anyone in.

The easiest way to schedule an appointment is to click on the book now button on our home page or click the book now button on one of the barbers team pictures. The advantage of using online booking is that you can schedule at anytime and manage your own appointment. The next best way is to call the shop and request an appointment.

Go to busystyle.com and login with your email and password that you created when you booked the appointment. Once you login click on it and you will see options to reschedule, cancel. You can also call the shop and speak to the barber you are scheduled with and let him/her know that you can't make it. If your barber isn't there you can leave a message with whoever answers the phone.

It's 12 hours to cancel or reschedule prior to your appointment and the fee is the total amount of the scheduled service. You can call to cancel or go online if you booked it through our online booking service.

It's hard to say. Sometimes there's no wait and sometimes it can be hours. We do recommend calling in advance.

Great question! Click one of the Join The Team links on this website and fill out the quick form to get the ball rollin.

We recommend waiting until about age 3 or 4. We find that children are more comfortable in a barbershop at this age. We use very sharp tools to achieve precise cuts and young children tend to move suddenly so for that reason we advise to wait until they are a bit older. But if you do decide to bring a younger child in then we would recommend a style that doesn't require the use of zero blades or razors.

Basic cuts are typically done with clippers and are more on the buzz cut end and completed within about 30 minutes Specialty cuts consist of a combination of clippers and scissors (although some Specialty Cuts can be done with clippers only). They are usually trending styles such as Undercuts, Combovers, Crops and Slickbacks. Specialty cuts take about 45 minutes to complete

You can join the waitlist on our appointment app. If anyone cancels you will receive a notification right away and you can snag the slot. Or you can try anyone of the other barbers in the shop. You may have seen one of them cutting a similar style as the one that you have. Don't worry we don't get mad if you sit in another chair! In fact don't be surprised if your usual barber comes by during your appointment to give your new back up barber pointers on how to achieve your usual cut.
