Covid 19 Saftey Procedures
We have been working hard putting safety procedures in place in the salon to prevent the spread Covid 19. We are asking everyone to follow these steps to ensure a happy safe working environment for ourselves and our clients. We are checking the guidelines regularly as they are changing on a weekly basis. All our staff are testing twice weekly using lateral flow tests.
- Safety check ins
On entry we will be making sure that all clients are symptom free and haven’t been caring for anyone that has been sick in the past 14days. If you have any symptoms you will not be allowed into the salon.
If you need to cancel your appointment due to sickness you will not be charged a cancellation fee and we will re schedule you as soon as it is safe to do so.
- Sanitizing together
We will ask you to sanitize your hands on arrival, we also ask you to sanitize your hands before pay at reception.
If you need to sneeze or cough please do this into a tissues and dispose of it straight away, then sanitize your hands. Please try not to touch your face, eyes or mouth whilst in the salon.
- Keep a safe distance
We will maintain a 2 meter distance between all stations. We have a screen at reception to protect people when paying and making appointments and also at the wash basins. Please stay in your seat at all times until your stylists says it is safe to move.
Please be mindful of other clients and stylists in the salon.
- Please wear a mask
All clients are required to wear a mask on entry to the salon. You can bring your own or we will provide them at a cost of £2 which will be added to your bill. If you are having your hair coloured please bring a disposable one as we can’t ensure we will not get colour on the straps. Stylist will be wearing a face mask and also aprons.
- Waiting room is temporary closed
Limiting crowed places makes everyone safer. Please wait outside practicing social distancing until your stylist is ready for you, alternatively you could wait in your car.
- Clients only
Please come to your appointment alone, do not bring friends, family or children.
- Limited Numbers
We are limiting the number of people and clients we are having in the salon.
- Cleaning and sanitizing standards
All stations, tools and products are being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between every service.
All gowns and towels are been washed in between each client on a high temperature.
We are asking people to use contactless payments were possible, but we are now accepting cash. We will have tins for each stylists with their name on that you can put a tip in if you wish. We are calling to take payment for services over the phone if possible to prevent cueing at reception.
- Appointments/ cancellations
We will not be accepting walk ins all appointments must be pre booked over the phone. If you are late to your appointment you will be turned away and charged for this time. If you need to cancel your appointment please give us at least 48 hours notice else you will be charged. If you have been told to isolate or have Covid symptoms then a fee will not be charged.
- Personal possessions
We ask that you do not bring a lot of personal possessions into the salon, such as shopping, coats etc.
if the weather is bad and you need a coat or umbrellas please ensure you bring a bag to put your things into and keep them with you.
- Text Reminder
We do use a text reminder service to remind you of your appointment. If you miss your appointment we will be taking full payment upfront for your next appointment booked.
- Skin testing
You will need to have a skin test every 6 months, if you have had Covid 19 or symptoms you will need to contact us to have a new test before having a colour as there have been some links to skin reactions.
- Children’s cuts
We are now booking in children that can sit independently whilst having their hair cut. We will ask they only come in with one adult and are asking that person to sit in an allocated seat whilst waiting so we can still follow the social distancing guidelines. We have had to increase our prices for this service as we are booking out more time so please see our price list.
Thankyou for your understanding and corporation. We look forward to welcoming you back.
