Coronavirus has changed the world! We have had to make many changes to our working practice. This means we will have to safeguard ourselves and you, our clients, which will require purchasing PPE and sterilising products and equipment. This does not just apply to FHA members, but all hairdressers working in our industry wherever their workplace may be.
First appointment back, every guest will be skin tested up to 7 days prior to colour service NO LESS than 48 hours prior to their appointment.
For those travelling from a far I will be sending you a patch test kit to apply . There is handy little video on my social media, to show you how to use them. There is also a blog on here, explaining why skin testing is so important.
What will the new normal look like?
All clients will be asked to wear a face covering or unused disposable mask, I have these to supply if you forget to bring one.
Please check-in on arrival – poster with NHS QR code will be on display.
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser when you enter.
Drinks will be supplied in a disposable cup.
If you have recent onset of any of the most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19)
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
Please contact me immediately if you show any of the above symptoms or are self isolating and have to cancel your appointment due to this you will not forfeit your booking fee, we will reschedule your appointment for when you’re well and no longer self isolating.
My preferred payment will be via my sum up machine – you can use card, Apple or G Pay contactless payment methods. I will also still accept cash.
What will I be doing to keep you safe?
As well as all of the above procedures I have put in place, I will also be doing the following:
All touch-points, surfaces and floors will be deep cleaned in my work area, between appointments.
A clean gown and towel will be used for every individual (this is normal standard practice) and washed at 60ºc, plus I will be adding Dettol laundry cleanser.
I will be thoroughly washing my hands and gloves after each use.
I will be changing and washing my apron after each client.
I will be sterilising all tools used, in either a sterilising solution called Salonside, along with my normal Barbicide.
I will be wearing a visor or googles along with a type 2 mask for each appointment.
There has been an annual price adjustments .
Please check out my price list here to see what new colour packages are available, along with new services.
I have made pricing easier to understand by having a tiered system for your colour. So for those long roots there is an additional amount added for product used and extra time needed.
There will be also a small non-profit add on for PPE, which will be between £3 this will be removed once PPE is no longer required.
