Guest Arrival Procedure:
- We ask that guests wear a mask. If they do not have one, your stylist will provide a disposable one for you.
- We recommend guest arriving early for their appointment.
- Guests will call to let us know they have arrived or give us a wave from outside.
- We will either let them know they can come in or ask them to wait until their stylist has finished their previous guest and has had time to disinfect and sanitize their station.
- We are communicating with guests to please be patient if we are running behind! Everyone’s hair is needing a bit more TLC than usual and we are taking extra measures to ensure everyone’s safety.
- We will then call guests when we are ready.
- Arrive at the door and give us a wave. We will ask them some pre-screening questions regarding any symptoms or travel before entry.
- We will ask them to wash their hands upon arrival or use hand sanitizer that will be provided.
- Once they have cleared the assessment and washed their hands they will be directed to their stylists station.
- We have plastic garment bags your stylist will place over your jackets closet storage. If it is nice out it is recommended to leave jacket in the car.
- Please arrive alone. We have a limit to how many people in the salon at one time.
- If you are experiencing any symptoms or feel unwell in any way, we ask that you reschedule your appointment.
Through these measures we feel confident that we can keep our team and guests safe as well as enjoy an exceptional experience.
