Message to our clients: Health & Safety
The health and wellbeing of our clients have always been our top priority. That’s why we are putting strict measures in place to protect you and our staff. These include:
To help with social distancing, please phone us if you want to make an appointment – don’t visit us in person to do this.
It is important to cancel and reschedule your appointment if:
• You feel unwell.
• You live with anyone who is unwell.
• You have been in contact with anyone who has typical coronavirus symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath, loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
• You have recently travelled to an area with high infection rates.
If you need to cancel no penalty or cancellation fee will apply.

1. Our team will greet you without close contact (no handshakes, hugs etc.).
2. On arrival, you will be asked to wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer. We will provide these facilities.
3. Our team is following strict hygiene guidelines and we ask you to do the same – please place any used paper towels and tissues straight in the bin after use. Sanitize or wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.
4. There will be no magazines or newspapers to share between clients.
5. Team members will be sanitizing all stations, door handles and bathrooms regularly.
6. Team members will be washing their hands thoroughly between clients and appointments.
7. We ask you not to touch any of our retail products unless you are definitely purchasing the item.
8. Staff will all be wearing face guards, and we ask that you wear a face mask.

In The Salon:
Work stations have safety screens between clients
Clear panels between the wash basins
Staff will wear face guards
All work areas will be fully cleaned and sanitized between clients
Disposable gowns, towels and drink cups
We will be limiting the number of customers in at any one time and we ask you attend on your own (if possible)
We have extended our opening hours to ensure we can cater for your needs
Private rooms (must pre-book) if you are worried and have concerns. In the private room it would be just you and your hairdresser

When you arrive:

We will operate a closed door policy, where a member of staff will meet and greet you at the door. They will check your stylist is ready, and then if so ask you to wash your hand at the wash basin in reception. They will then take you to your seat. Please arrive a few minutes before your appointment time, wearing a face mask or face covering.

We will take your details: Name, telephone number and email address (this will be kept for 21 days and then destroyed) There will be a short questionnaire to answer, and we will ask to take your temperature by a non-contact temperature reader. You may need to wait outside a few minutes if you are early or your stylist is not quite ready.


Thank you for your cooperation. Keep yourself and your family safe, and we look forward to see you again soon
