The UK Government annouced that we have now entered Step 4 of the roadmap out of covid . The Beauty Industry can stay open without treatment restrictions from 19th July 2021 and wearing of masks within close contact services is highly recommended. Please continue to wear a mask at your appointment until further notice. I will tontinue to charge a £1.00 charge per client visit to contribute to the cost of the PPE. Hope that’s ok with you all. All treatments are now available.

We are lucky in the beauty industry, that we are used to working and providing a clean and sanitary environment, but even we have had to up our game. I will continue with vigourous cleaning between clients. I am taking twice weekly Lateral Flow Covid tests to help keep you safe.

Bossy bit first – We all know the basics, but as a reminder, DO NOT ATTEND ANY APPOINTMENT if you have ANY Covid-19 symtoms including a loss of taste or smell, or a sore throat, wet cold or virul infection of any kind. Do not attend if you have been in contact with someone who has symptoms or if you are awaiting test results until guidance on this changes. Do not attend if you have been notified by the test and trace service that you have been in a place where someone has tested positive for Covid-19. Get a test, stay home until you’re in the clear. Don’t bring it to me, as you will close my business! You should follow NHS advice on self isolation. Any clients arriving for appointments with any of these symptoms will be refused treatment and not offered any further appointments. I’ve always insisted clients stay away if they’re ill, and I mean it more than ever now. 9/12 months with no income has not been a laugh, so I could do without having to close my doors as soon as i’ve opened them! Strict 24 hour cancellation policy applies. If you hold an appointment for more than two weeks in my diary and then cancel it, you will be charged 50%. I am turning lots of people away and it’s just not cricket to monopolise my diary and then cancel. Thank you. Bossy bit over 🙂 Hugs x

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

Be mindful that sanitising between clients will have a significant impact on how many clients I can see in a day but I will do my best to fit you in as soon as I can.

It is essential to complete a new record card prior to your visit which will be sent to you via email approximately one hour after making your booking. Do let me know if you have had covid-19 and have any on-going respiritory issues so I can take extra care of you.

Please wear your own mask to your appointment. I will be wearing a mask too.

Arrive AT your appointment time and not too early. Please wait until your appointment time, and I will come and get you from reception. You can bring your bike into the alleyway to the left of the salon and secure it.

When you come in you will be asked to scan in using the unique QR code to assist with test and trace. Don’t worry if you don’t have a smart phone. I keep records of all visitors anyway, so i’ve got it covered.

If you develop symptoms within 14 days of your appointment, you must let me know so that I can take the responsible steps to warn other clients. If any of my clients informs me that they have a positive result and you have been here during that time, I will be in touch with you. If I develop Covid-19 or my family members do, then I will have to close and cancel your appointment. So hoping this doesn’t happen, but we need to be realistic and responsible.

Please assess whether you feel you may have any symptoms at all before attending your appointment.
Help yourself to hand gel on arrival. . If you and a partner are both having appointments, you will need to wait in the reception area and take it in turns.

Your room will be cleaned prior to your visit and again afterwards ready for the next client.
Payment by card only. The keypad will be sanitised before and after use.
You can remake your next appointment while you are here 🙂
Please remind yourself of my terms and conditions next.

PS: – If you have been colouring your own hair at home or have been unwell during the Pandemic, please insist your hairdresser carry out a patch test at least 48 hours before you have your hair coloured. You should have your patch test repeated annually anyway, but now more than ever!

Tint tests or tinted services are not permitted within 2 weeks of a covid vaccination.
