Hope this post finds you and your beloved ones safe and sound.
With the current uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), it’s only natural that we are being precautious when it comes to hygiene and safety. This is especially prevalent in an industry such as hairdressing when so much of the service relies on physical touch.
We have been extremely transparent about the measures we have taken and this has increased our clients' confidence, which thankfully means that we have not yet experienced a negative impact.
It’s business as usual, but run in a slightly different way. We listen carefully to our clients and your general concerns, and try to put measures in place to mitigate those concerns. It’s our job to instil confidence in our clients, reassuring you that we are doing our part to keep you healthy.
Tips for hair stylists working from home and salons;
*Politely encourage customers to wash their hands on arrival
* Throughout and at the end of each day disinfect door handles, sections, basins and card machines and in between clients
* Disinfect your tools (ALL stylists should be doing this anyway)
* Hand sanitisers are present on work stations, reception, the washroom and the staff room
We strongly urge any clients who have travelled to any of the affected areas or show signs of the virus to reschedule your appointments. We are not being rude but simply asking you to be extra careful. Your well-being is very important to us ❤️
In light of the pandemic announcement we have requested that where possible clients refrain from paying in cash. This will reduce the amount of handling of cash we are required to do as well as limiting the touching of hands between clients and team members too.
If the current news on coronavirus (COVID-19) is making you feel anxious, concerned or stressed, here are some things you can do;
*Talk to someone about how you’re feeling
*Chase facts not fiction - there is a lot of information about the virus out there and false reports can fuel anxiety. Stay on top of what’s happening by using the Government website, it is the most up-to-date and reliable source of information. The NHS common questions about the virus can also be useful if you are worried about symptoms or family members.
*Find things that help you feel calm
