Reopening the salon - keeping you and our team safe

  |   Misc

We thought hard about how to keep you and our team safe. There are many new safety and sanitation initiatives that we are implementing, there are some we feel it's important to highlight: 

Entry to the salon - Before entering the salon, the State requires us to ask a few brief health questions, and only guests with confirmed appointments will be allowed in the salon. Due to our capacity limitations, (and by the Mayor's orders in DC locations)  we ask that you wait outside the salon, in a place you feel comfortable and we will text you when your stylist is ready to begin your appointment.


Masks - The State requires our entire team and you to wear a mask. For this reason, we have implemented a strict Mask Rule - no mask, no service - no exceptions! We ask that you bring a mask to your appointment, at this time we are not able to provide them. 


Social distancing - We will be utilizing every other station for services and limiting the number of stylists in the salon. This will allow each guest to remain at least 6 ft apart from other guests. Stylists will only provide services one-guest at a time.


Cleaning Safety and Sanitation - Cleaning safety and sanitation have always been a significant part of our salon culture and Cosmetology licensure. Many of our team have taken the Barbicide sanitization certification course.  Each station and the tools associated with services will be cleaned and sanitized between each service and, of course, handwashing. We will need a little more time between services to follow these new rules.  


Salon Experience - The new normal means we have removed magazines, beverage services, and any unnecessary items from the stations and salon. We encourage you to use Apple or Google pay for contactless payment and make any gratuities via Venmo or exact change to limit cash handling. 

Limiting Blow-Drys & Services - Some states asked salons to totally forgo blow-dry services, so out of an abundance of caution, we are currently not offering full blow-dry services. All blow-drys will be restricted to the amount needed to ensure the quality of service. At this time, we are not offering lengthy services, such as color corrections.
