Keeping us safe, and keeping you safe

As we head into the colder months and in line with government and industry body guidelines, we have once again implemented changes to help ensure the safety of our team as well as you, our valued guests.

  • Wash basins are sanitised once a client has had their hair washed
  • Each individual work area is sanitised once a client has left
  • We now use only disposable towels
  • Gowns are washed after each use
  • Hand sanitiser is available at the door, we politely request that this be used when entering the salon
  • Our staff sanitise and wash their hands throughout the day

We now have the NHS Track and Trace app for your convenience. Please look out for the QR Codes which are available throughout the salon and scan yourself in as soon as you enter the salon.  Please see this article if you have any problems using the app or do feel free to ask any of our team and they will happily help you.

For more information on what to expect when visiting the salon for your appointment, please see our Covid-19 Guidelines for appointments.

COVID-19 Guidelines for appointments

The salon will re-open on the 4th July 2020 and we can’t wait to see you.  We have been  preparing the salon with the necessary measures to ensure that it’s a a safe place for you as well as our team.

  • Each Stylist will only have one client in the salon at a time.
  • We will provide a hand sanitiser station at reception, and we’ll ask you to use it when entering and leaving the salon.
  • We are unable to offer refreshments
  • The toilet is closed to clients

We are a COVID aware salon

We know that many clients are really nervous about returning to the salon, so we hope that this COVID Aware Certification which we have received from The Good Salon Guide will give you the confidence that we are doing everything possible to keep you safe.

We already put hygiene and cleanliness at the forefront in the salon, and are on top of new health and safety guidelines. As a COVID Aware Certified salon we have proved that we are taking serious measures to keep both their staff and you safe from COVID-19.

Some of the measures that a COVID Aware salon has in place are:

  • Completion of a full COVID-19 Risk Assessment
  • Full staff training relating to COVID-19 – Risk Assessment, use of PPE, sanitisation etc.
  • Regular management checks to ensure measures are in place and followed
  • Sanitisation of the salon, including hand sanitisation for staff, clients and visitors
  • Social distancing is in place and enforced
  • Track and Trace systems in place

Coronavirus

With the threat of Coronavirus becoming part of our lives, there are just a few things which we would like to bring to your attention when visiting the salon. We would like you to be aware of the steps we take to ensure safety for us all.

Regular Cleaning

The salon is cleaned on a daily basis. Hard surfaces are wiped with anti-bacterial wipes.

Guests in the Salon

Please let us know if you have recently visited any of the affected areas. We are very happy to re-schedule appointments for you if you feel you need to self-isolate.

Hand Washing

We wash our hands frequently during the day and there are facilities available if any customers wish to wash their own hands. There is a supply of hand sanitising gel available for your use if required.
