We fully intend to open the salon doors again once we are told it is safe to do so, with our clients and our team’s safety at the forefront of our minds.
We have put in place some new safe working procedures, following advice from the government and the National Hair and Beauty Federation. To make sure we adhere to social distancing measures the salon will have longer opening hours and the team will be split in to two smaller teams and work in shifts, to reduce numbers in the building.
Our new opening hours will be 9am-9pm.
Some changes you will notice: * Signs have been put up around the salon and on the front door to remind clients of social distancing measures, as well as reminding people we no longer accept walk-ins. * We have installed Perspex screens at the reception desk and between the seats at the backwash. * Some chairs have been taken away to ensure there is a 2-metre gap between each client. * Our team will be wearing visors/ masks, gloves and aprons at all times. * Gowns will be washed in antibacterial wash after every use and disposable towels will be used. * Disposable cups will be used for all refreshments, if we are allowed to provide these.
Some things we ask of our clients: * Only one person in reception area at a time. You may be asked to wait outside if the reception area is occupied. * Our waiting area has been removed and you will now be seated in your stylists’ chair straight away. * All clients are to use hand sanitiser on arrival. * Please bring your own reading material as we will no longer be offering magazines. * All clients will be asked to attend their appointment alone.
Some new working practices: * We will only be open for pre booked appointments to start with, please, no walk- ins. * Each stylist will have their own styling station, with a trolley of their own equipment that will be sterilized after every use. * Each station will be thoroughly cleaned after every client and all staff are to wash their hands thoroughly after every client. * We will now be taking deposits when booking appointments and there will be a 48-hour cancellation notice. * Due to the government guidelines of PPE a surcharge will also be added to services to cover this. * Initially we will be doing CARD payments only.
Although we will do our upmost to keep all our clients and staff safe, it does remain the client’s responsibility to make sure you are safe to visit us.
We respectfully ask you NOT to visit us if you or anyone else in your household are feeling unwell. Please do not put our team and fellow clients at risk. We can rebook your appointment once you do not have symptoms.
Important: If you have changed your email address or mobile phone number in the last six months then can you please let us know your up- to- date contact details in preparation for our re-opening. Please email to email@example.com.
We look forward to opening our doors again soon and cannot wait to catch up with you all.
In the mean time stay safe, keep smiling and take care Love the Style Hair & Beauty team
