Masks are to be worn while in the salon.  No exceptions. This is for my safety, your safety, and the safety of our communities. I will be wearing a mask as well, to help protect you. Here is a video with our own CMO Dr. Hinshaw showing us how to properly put on and take off a mask.

At this time, only yourself will be permitted in the salon. Exception to this are people who reside in the same home and who all have a booked appointment.

Bring only the essentials to your appointment. Leave any non-essential items in your vehicle or at home.

Food and drink can be brought for longer appointments but can only be consumed during processing times when we can safely stay physically distanced.The salon will not be providing any food or drinks at this time.

Salon door will be opened 5 minutes prior to your appointment time. Please use the client check in link below to let me know you are here. I will let you know when I am ready.

This is to prevent client overlap and ensure full cleaning can be done.

Appointments may take longer than usual. Your understanding and patience is appreciated.  

There will be a 3$ Covid Safety charge added to your total today to help cover the extra cleaning supplies, masks, other ppe, and time to ensure safety. If you have your own mask, this charge will be reduced to 2$

Electronic payments are preferred ( Debit, credit card, e-gift card or e-transfer ). If there is a concern, please let me know prior to your appointment.

                                                                                                                                          

IN THE SALON PROCEDURES

Remove and hang up any coats, sweaters, bags, hats, etc… in tthe designated area.

Wash your hands for 20 seconds and dry with a paper towel. Alternatively, use the hand sanitizer provided.

Put on a mask ( if you are not already wearing one ). Your personal mask is welcome or I will have disposable ones for you.

Masks are to ensure your safety, my safety, and that of our communities. Masks are madatory while in the salon. Your appointment will not proceed without one.

Head on over to my chair and the coversation, laughs, and hair doing will begin…. minus any hugging, for now.

I will have a container for the masks to be disposed of in. Please place your mask in this container when we are finished.

This will be a learning time for all of us. Please don’t feel overwhelmed by all these changes. We will work through them together and I will be there to help you ensure our safety. I sure don’t want either of us, or any of our loved ones, getting covid-19.

I look forward to seeing everyone again after such a long time away.

  1. Sounds like a sensible plan. This virus has changed our norms and we must accommodate and work together. I for one am looking forward to having a hair style again. Sorry Victoria but my first visit may take a while. I tried to cut my own hair.

      I think I will be seeing a lot of ” Sooo, I tried to cut my own hair ” in the next little bit.

      Thanks for the support.

  2. It’ll be great to see you again, to say nothing of my hair…. My son and I both need appointments and hope to book consecutive slots. Any time in June is fine except 4 June (which is probably booked up already anyway). My son’s name is Alexander Dowsey and we’ve both been extremely careful since testing negative in March after getting flu. We’ll carefully follow all your guidelines and honour you for taking care of yourself and your clients.
