Keeping Clients & Our Team Safe at Hair by Elements Salon in Bishop’s Stortford
COVID-19 – New Protocols For Health & Safety
It’s been quite the year, hasn’t it? There’s been so much going on, especially with COVID-19, so we thought it would be helpful to share with you some of the changes you may encounter during your next visit at Hair by Elements. There is still some uncertainty as to what measures we may need to have in place, but here are some that we feel are important to maintain the health, safety and wellbeing of yourselves and our team.
Salon Thoroughly Cleaned & Disinfected
We will ensure that the salon is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to re-opening. Every member of the team has passed a Barbicide course in salon sanitation and will make sure that everything we use in regards to equipment will be sterilised before and after every appointment. Every section will be cleaned down and maintained throughout your service.
An Individual PPE Pack For Every Guest
We will be providing every guest with a Self Care Pack. This will potentially contain a clean/disposable gown, 2 x disposable towels, a pair of disposable gloves and a face mask. There will be a £3.00 surcharge to cover the cost of these items. I’m sure you will understand, as this is an additional cost to us to be able to carry out your service safely.
Social Distancing Measures
We are committed to social distancing. However, as our industry requires us to be close proximity of each other, we are putting additional measures in place. All consultations will be carried out with us behind the chair talking via the mirror. This goes against how we feel about consultations but this will be the safest way for us to work at this time. We will have distance between our work stations depending on official guidelines. We do ask that you attend your appointments on your own as we will not be able to accommodate partners, children or friends unless they have an appointment with a different stylist at the same time.
Personal One To One Appointments
Firstly we shall be prioritising our bookings in the order that appointments were booked prior to lockdown. All appointments may be single bookings. This means that we may not be taking appointments between colour services. This will obviously limit the availability of appointments per day, if we are advised to limit the number of guests in the salon at any one time. Single bookings will enable us to clean and sanitise our equipment and work stations. We shall look at working shift patterns potentially over seven days a week in order to accommodate as many guests as possible. We are sure you are all desperate to see us.
Temporary Price Adjustment
We are pleased to announce we are not putting our prices up for Cut and Blow Dry’s or Blow Dry’s. However there will be a temporary increase to our colour services. We have had to calculate the cost involved, with extra colour being used and the additional time needed for these services. Therefore, as a guide:
Rescue Colour Regrowth will be £77.00 (roots only)
Hair Colour Rescue Package will be £133.00 (root colour, + semi permanent colour on your mid lengths and ends to refresh the old colour, + pure pigment colour added to enhance the tone and a deep conditioning hair treatment to bring life back into your hair)
All other colour services will be price on consultation.
The Covid-19 Lockdown has affected many businesses due to us having to close. We will not be able to recoup those loses and this can have a devastating impact on o our economy and could result in permanent closure.
We can’t wait to see you!
Stay safe and healthy
