How we are keeping you safe

How we are keeping you safe


Temporary changes and health and safety measures

  • We have extended the timing of all our services in the salon. This will prevent overlapping of clients and allow time for cleaning and sanitising sections between appointments.
  • If you have not already made your appointment, we require a £50 booking fee or 50% if your service is over £300. Please note this booking fee is non-refundable.
  • Due to high demand and after being closed for nearly 4 months we need to get our business up and running again, so we have had to extend our cancellation policy. We will require 1 weeks’ notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment which include only wanting part of your service on the day. Any appointment cancelled outside of this notice period we would have to charge 50%.
  • If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature/fever, consistent cough, loss of taste/smell). Then you must not come to the salon for your appointment and notify us straight away. We will then rebook your appointment for no earlier than 14 days. Our cancellation policy is not applicable for this and therefore you will not be charged.
  • We are unable to serve hot or cold refreshments or magazines, please feel free to bring any of these to the salon for yourself and take them home after your appointment.
  • Clients can choose to wear a face covering whilst with us. However, the government guidelines state this is not compulsory.
  • We are unable to take your coat or personal belongings at the moment, so please keep these to a minimum for now. You will be able to use the vacant seat next to you to leave these items.
  • Our staff will wash/sanitise hands on arrival to work and will continue regularly through the day and of course in between every client.
  • Our towels, gowns and capes will be single use and we will be either binned or washed at 60-90 degrees after every use.
  • We will have a one-way system in place in the salon, so please follow the arrows when moving around the salon floor.
  • All door handles and any areas that are touched regularly will be fully sanitised regularly.
  • We have disposable paper towels, disinfectant wipes, bacterial hand wash available in the toilet.
  • The toilet will be cleaned very regularly and will have a staff rota on display.
  • We will have bottles of hand sanitiser throughout the whole salon for use for staff and clients.
  • Please note we have not added any extra charges for all the PPE our business is currently having to adhere to in order to keep our salon safe for our staff and clients.

  • When you come into the reception area we have our hand sanitising area, you will need to sanitise you’re hands upon arrival.
