Our COVID-19 Safety Steps
We’re making a number of adjustments to the guest journey to ensure the continued safety of you and our team by:
- Extending opening hours from 10am–10pm, Monday to Sunday, and revising staff rotas to reduce salon occupancy in line with social distancing requirements.
- Wearing appropriate PPE; facemasks will be worn throughout your visit and protective visors will supplement the mask during services at the shampoo station and any face-to-face service elements.
- Sanitising our hands, styling stations, styling chairs, shampoo chairs, hair wash basins and all hairdressing tools at the start of the day and after each guest.
- Sanitising high-touch areas, (door handles, card terminals etc), bathrooms, routinely throughout the day.
- Suspending self-serve product trials and tester usage; we will collect and bag the products you require.
- Transferring checkout to your styling station and suspending cash payment.
- Temperature checking our staff each day and requiring staff displaying any COVID19 to self isolate.
We’re asking you to help us reduce the risk of any virus transmission by:
- Not attending the salon if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has.
- Attending your appointment alone as we can no longer accommodate extra family members, children or friends.
- Wearing a facemask that hooks behind the ears throughout your visit. (Please wear a disposable mask, if you are concerned about colour stains or purchase one from us, priced £1.00)
- Waiting outside the salon on arrival; your service provider will invite you in once your station is sanitized and ready.
- Allowing us to check your temperature before entry, (using a contactless digital forehead thermometer). If your temperature is 37.8 degrees or higher you will need to reschedule your appointment.
- Placing your coat/jacket in the garment bag provided, (please do not bring additional bags, or shopping with you).
- Sanitizing your hands when you arrive, after coughing/sneezing and after using the bathroom.
- Bringing your own refreshment and reading material as we are unable to offer beverages or magazines at this time.
- Maintaining a safe social distance throughout your visit.
- Making payment by card/contactless payment only. Gratuities for your service provider/s may be added to your card/contactless payment: any gratuity is passed on to your service provider/s in full.
- Booking your future by telephone to help reduce the time in salon.
We appreciate your support in these challenging times and will keep these arrangements under review.
