Salon Covid-19 Questions and Answers

NEW APPOINTMENT & CLIENT GUIDELINES – Updated 6/1/2021

We are very excited for the new normal following Governor Baker’s announcement to lift all Covid-related restrictions in Massachusetts on May 29th.

As much as we are excited to see all of your faces, if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, we will continue to provide masks for you or you may bring your own. Our staff has been vaccinated and masks are no longer required in our salon, but if you prefer that your service provider wears a mask, please let us know prior or during your appointment and we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.

We will be keeping the majority of our safety protocols in place with a few minor changes: masks are no longer required, we have stopped using barrier film on each handle after every use, and we will keep the door unlocked – which means, walk-ins are welcome!

Thank you all for your support and patience as we worked through the emotional and logistical rollercoaster over the past year. We feel so proud and grateful to say that, due to our stringent measures, our staff’s hard work, and most of all our clients’ strict adherence to safety protocols, we have not had a single incident during this scary, unpredictable time. We are thrilled to be able to see you, your noses and your smiles, once again.

Take care, be well, and see you in our chairs soon!

WHAT WE ARE DOING TO KEEP YOU SAFE

Each station is still more than 6ft apart, with barrier shelves between each of the chairs/stations.

Each station has an air purifier with two H13 HEPA filters on each side, that cover approximately 500sq ft of space, and one air purifier at the front desk area for a total of 30,000sq ft of coverage. (Our salon is about 1,200 sq. ft.) We ask that you bring something warm to wear, it might get a little chilly in the salon with all the air purifiers on at the same time.

All of our stylists will be changing to a fresh and clean stylist smock between each client.

All tools will continue to be properly sanitized using salon grade tool disinfectant, and then placed into  one of our two UV-C light machines for additional safety.

We will continue to clean, disinfect and sanitize high traffic areas and touch points throughout the day (such as door handles, light switches, keyboards, credit card machine), and we will disinfect stations between each client with industrial grade IPA concentrated rubbing alcohol and Barbicide.

For your services we will provide each guest with:

  • Clean, sanitized robe and cape, both in a disposable sealed bag.
  • A clean and sanitized bin containing clean and sanitized tools (combs, clips, brushes etc.) inside individual disposable sealed bags.
  • A bottle of a personal Extology 1oz sanitizer is available to each guest at the front desk upon request.
  • Touchless sanitizer dispenser near the entrance of the salon.
  • Touchless restroom light switch.
  • Touchless restroom soap dispenser.

GENERAL RULES

Please stay home if exhibiting signs of Covid-19.
