There are some changes that will be made during this time, so please read this message in its entirety before booking an appointment.

  • Scheduled appointments only, no walk-ins will be accepted.
  • There will be only one waiting chair available. We ask that you do not arrive early for your appointment and to please wait in your car until your appointment time. Please stand on the X by the front door when you enter and when you pay at the end of your appointment.
  • Face masks will be MANDATORY to enter the salon. If you do not have a mask, we will have disposable masks to purchase for $1.50 or clean, cloth, reusable masks. Your stylist will be wearing a mask or a face shield for the duration of your appointment. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the salon. Please wash your hands immediately when entering the building.
  • During shampoos, we ask you to please refrain from speaking. Your shampoo will be done as quickly as possible and there will be no lingering at the sink basin. We will only have one client at the sinks at a time.
  • If you are sick or showing symptoms of being ill (cough, fever, sneezing, sore throat), or if anyone in your family has been sick, you are asked to cancel your appointment. We will reschedule your appointment for two weeks after your cancellation, pending stylist availability. We will be performing screening questions before we begin your service and you will be asked to sign a waiver.
  • Proper social distancing rules will apply at all times within the salon. Stations and shifts have been staggered to maintain social distancing.
  • No friends or family will be allowed to accompany clients during their appointments. (Certain health circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis).
  • No food or beverages will be allowed in the salon. Bottled water will be provided as needed. If you choose to bring your own, please be sure you take it with you when you leave.
  • No shared items such as magazines, brochures, etc. will be provided. Please bring your own reading material and take it with you when you leave.
  • We will have no products on shelves to avoid handling but please let your stylist know what you would like and they will get it for you. There will be no returns at this time.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who shows cold or flu-like symptoms.

Salon Safety:

To ensure your safety, we will only have 3 stylists working at one time to allow us to maintain the required 2-meter distance between people in the salon. We are booking an additional 15 minutes between clients to ensure our equipment is properly cleaned and disinfected before each client. All towels, capes, and gowns will be laundered after each use. We will be wiping down all door handles and common surfaces between clients. Staff will be screened before their shifts each day and will stay home if they show any signs of illness. Your health and safety are very important to us, please have patience as we navigate through all these changes.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time. We look forward to seeing you!
