Welcome back to our salon!

Blue hairdressing graysott

We are really excited to invite you back to the salon! We have missed all our lovely customers and are proud to announce the doors will be open from the 6th July.

Please be assured that  when the salon is re-opened you will still receive the same high-quality service but due to new restrictions certain things will have changed. Upon visiting our salon, we will expect you to adhere to the new rules in place:

  • Come alone to your appointment unless you are supervising children for their haircuts or require assistance.
  • Arrive on time to your appointment. Not early; not late. You will be asked to wait outside to not cause congestion in our waiting area and to help us maintain our social distancing measures.
  • Please bring as little as possible with you, the cloakroom is closed for the foreseeable future so please only bring what you need.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering the salon, Hand sanitiser will be available on the reception and throughout the salon for you to use. Mobile phones and any devices need to be disinfected before being put on any surface too.
  • It is advisable that you wear a mask whilst in the salon. Although the government have said there is no requirement for the client to wear any additional protection such as a mask or face covering, when the stylist is wearing a visor. We are still advising that our clients wear masks for everyone’s safety. You can bring your own mask with you to wear in the salon or alternatively we will provide you with a mask but you will be charged £1 ( we take no responsibility for mask getting tint on them so you may want to purchase a disposable one from us.)
  • Pay by card where possible with chip and pin. Contactless and apple pay are accepted. We will also accept payments over the phone when booking if you prefer. We will still be accepting cash too.

 

Please also note that:

We will not be taking temperatures on arrival so If you are feeling unwell with a high temperature or you are living with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus, We will ask you to reschedule your appointment for a later date, taking into consideration that it can take up to 14 days for symptoms to start to appear.

 

Please consider that any cancellation of appointments not due to coronavirus; less than 24hours ahead will mean you loose 50% of your deposit or will be charged 50% of any missed appointments at your next appointment. We apologise in advance but due to new restrictions we are working at less capacity than before.

 

We will be carrying out social distancing measures and extra cleaning schedules throughout the day, so please be patient with us whilst we deal with the added measures that we need to put into place to keep you and our team safe.

 

Thank you for all your support during this time.

 

We look forward to welcoming you back through our door soon.
