I hope you and your families are keeping well and staying safe. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to each of you who have sent me the loveliest messages during this lockdown period, it really has meant so much!
Following on from the government’s announcement on 23rd June, I’m delighted to let you know that from the 4th July, I can re-open for hairdressing services.
At the moment, my other services, such as Tanning, Nails and Facial Waxing are still not able to be booked or take place until the government release further guidance and give the go-ahead. I am of course keeping a close eye on this and will let you know of any further changes as soon as they are published.
I cannot wait to see you all, I want to do this in the safest and fairest way possible. This post will detail my plans for re-opening what that will look like.
What Happens Next?…
Over the coming week or so, I will be in touch with each of you to reschedule your hair appointment. Please do bear with me, I will get to you as soon as I can, but I will be making my way through my list in date order from the 23rd March, which was the day lockdown began and all treatments stopped.
I’m hoping this won’t apply as I kindly asked for you not to colour your own hair at home… However if you are a lady who has colour applied directly on to your scalp and you have coloured your hair during this lockdown period, please do let me know when we speak, as before I see you for a colour appointment, you will need to have a skin test. Due to the recommendations from Wella and my insurance company, I would be unable to apply any colour to your scalp until a skin test has been carried out.
When We See Each Other…
As much as I have missed each and everyone of you, for the foreseeable I will aim to keep as much distance during your appointment as physically possible. It is not compulsory at this stage for you to wear a face covering, however should you wish to, please feel free to do so.
I will also be running through a client questionnaire with you on your appointment, which will need to be signed off using your own pen, so please ensure you bring one with you if your appointment is at my home.
I will be carrying antibacterial hand sanitiser, Dettol spray and Barbicide so that I am able to sanitise both myself and equipment when out visiting you in your home. This will include sanitising and disinfecting my footwear before I enter your home.
Appointments throughout the day will need to run slightly differently as I’ll need to have time in between clients to ensure that all equipment is sanitised and disinfected thoroughly. Your co-operation and support on this will be very much needed and appreciated by arriving for any appointment, whether that be at my home or yours, on time. I cannot stress enough how important this will be going forward to ensure that each and everyone of you gets the appointment they so desperately need.
If your appointment is at my home, I would kindly ask you to please bring with you a bottle of water or your own tea or coffee in a travel cup. I will also be doing the same when I come to visit you in your home too.
If you or any member of your household are displaying any symptoms or feeling unwell in any way prior to or after your appointment, it is imperative you let me know as soon as possible.
To Put Your Mind At Rest…
Over the last 3 months, I’ve been doing all I can to increase my already high standard of health, safety and hygiene. I am more than happy to share with you the extra safety precautions and steps I have put in place to keep us both safe. These measures include the recommended PPE, regular hand washing throughout your appointment, sanitation and disinfection of all of my equipment before and after each client, along with double bagging all of my client gowns and towels until they are then washed at 60 degrees at the end of each day.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything at all, please feel free to get in touch.
In the meantime, I hope you and your families remain safe and well and I cannot wait to see you in the coming weeks ahead!
Love, Nina x
