Coronavirus(COVID19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy
I have missed being able to offer you the treatments that I know you love, and I am looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.
My priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of.
During the time the salon has been shut,I have completed the Coronavirus Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild Of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry . I have since made a number of changes in the way that I operate that you will notice when you next visit.
Before I can confirm any bookings you will be emailed a covid 19 pre screening consultation form to fill out which must be sent back to me, clients who refuse to fill out the form or just ignore it and don’t send it back to me will be refused treatments.
If I feel ill or have symptoms of covid 19, I will self isolate immediately and not come into the salon.This may mean that I have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safey. If your appointment is cancelled i will re-book you in after 14 days isolation.
If you or anyone of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of Covid19 please advise me as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. I have amended the booking terms and conditions and you will not be charged for any appointments which you miss due to illness.
Visiting the salon
For your safety and to maintain social distancing, I ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for your appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving.
I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilet door handles etc are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.
All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with specific manufacturers instructions for your safety.
Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.
You will have access to soap and water to wash your hands with as soon as you enter the salon.
Please don’t be surprised or upset that I will now wear personal protective equipment during your visit and during your treatment. This may include face masks, face shield/glasses and disposable gloves.
I can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms is a priority I can assure you that all salon laundry is washed at 60 degrees C.
I have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and I am confident that I can continue to provide these safely.
During your treatment
I understand the importance of hand hygiene and I will ensure that I wash my hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment and at the end of your treatment.
I will try to make sure your treatment is as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments please let me know and I will do what I can to satisfy you.
After the treatment
In order to avoid handling of cash, I would prefer if you could pay for your treatment by card (contactless)or bank transfer.
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine. I will continue to take advise from the Government and NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.
Thanks for your understanding
