Important Information about your next visit to Jealousi.
Update 08/07/2021 - Please read....
Dear Client and Friends
We have given great consideration to the anticipated changes, in the lockdown measures, on 19Th July.
Locally, rates of infection, are increasing rapidly and affecting both none vaccinated and the vaccinated members of our society. And whilst the risk of serious illness is reduced by vaccination it does not wholly remove the risk.
www.gov.co.uk offer this within their current anticipated guidance for 19th July.
“Published guidance will advise that wearing a face covering will reduce your risk and the risk to others, where you come into close contact, with people you do not normally meet in enclosed and crowded spaces”.
As a hair stylists we can not avoid being with in extremely close proximity of you as clients and subsequently the above government advise must be taken seriously.
We do not wish to be the reason for anybody’s ill health and only wish to be part of the resolution in reducing the spread of this horrific virus.
Therefore, all of our current safety measures will remain in place including the wearing of masks for both the team and clients.
Guidance permits business’s to make their own decision around the wearing of face coverings based on the setting and risk to Helth and safety.
We, kindly, ask for your support in this decision and thank you for all you have done, thus far, supporting our current safety measures.
Richard and Stewart.
COVID-19 Restrictions - Please Read to the entirety.
We have been very much looking forward to seeing you all and making you feel fabulous.
However, we are sure you are aware, that things have to be different for a while, at least.
Below we have set out a few points and expectations that we must apply to visitors to the salon, in the hope that we sufficiently negate any risk of infection, for you the client and us the team.
If you have felt un-well, at any point, in the 14 days prior to your appointment, Please reschedule.
We have made significant changes to provide sufficient protection of both clients and team.
We have installed screens between each Styling chair and at the reception desk.
Face screens have been applied to the back washes.
All team will wear a face mask along with a full-face visor, along with gloves during shampooing and colouring.
The hygiene routines, with in the salon, have been amended and increased, all tools, gowns, surfaces and communal spaces will be cleansed after each client’s use.
Dry cuts are not permissible and fringe trims will be by appointment only and thus chargeable.
We cannot facilitate “walk-in” services. We are strictly by appointment only.
A 15 minute sterilisation time gap has been added to the end of each Cut/styling appointment. (colour clients will generally require these services after colouring.)
For a while there will be no “waiting area” to reduce the number of people in the salon at any one time. Please arrive on your own as children and companions will not be permitted to wait inside the premises.
Due to the increase in costs and the reduction in productivity a small increase in our service charges have had to be applied. Please speak to your stylist if you wish to know how much this will mean to you, but on average this will be no more than £5.
We would now ask that you read the following guidelines before you arrive at the salon.
We understand that it maybe lengthy but it is imperative that you understand our expectations for you avoid disappointment on the day of your appointment.
Things for you to consider before you arrive and upon arrival.
On arrival please ring the door bell and await instruction from a member of team. (we will endeavour to be with you on time but, in the event that we aren’t please return to your vehicle, or our new covered outdoor space, until collected by a member of team.
Please minimise the amount of belongings you bring into the building, we cannot store your coat or any other belongings. If you need to bring these items with you please put them into a suitable bag before entering the salon and keep them with you at all times.
When invited to do so, please sanitise your hands, using the wall mounted dispenser by the salon door, a team member will take your temperature using a contact free thermometer and you will asked to apply a face mask before entering the building. (if you do not have a mask we can provide one but this is chargeable at a cost of £1.50).
Unless asked to do so, by your Stylist, your mask should remain on at all times during your visit. We realise that this will limit conversation and reduce enjoyment but, for now, this is compulsory.
Your consultation will take place in the styling chair that your service will be performed in, at this point you may be invited to briefly lower your mask, but it MUST be put back in place immediately after, all communication for your consultation will be made using the mirror to avoid face to face transfer of infection. (ie: we will be talking to you from behind.)
Whilst at the back-wash we will place a screen in front of your face to further reduce risk, we would ask that you refrain from touching the screen and allow the team to do this for you. Also your mask should remain in place.
If you wish to use the toilet facilities please advise a member of team immediately after your use. This will enable us to clean the surfaces in the toilet before the next person. This is imperative for us to comply with current hygiene guidelines.
Sadly, we cannot provide reading materials but our tv screens are working and there to entertain you.
We can provide a hot or cold drinks but in disposable cups only.
We would ask that you minimise contact with unnecessary items and surfaces. Basically, if you don’t need to touch it then please don’t. This will help reduce contact transference of any possible viral contaminants.
If you require any retail product’s please discuss your requirements with your stylist and they will gather them for you. Please refrain touching.
When it’s time to leave please do so directly and without delay to allow us time to sanitise ready for the next client and to allow us observe the 1+ meter social distancing guidance around busier area’s of the salon.
All Colour Clients.
To avoid the need for skin testing every colour client, Joico, our colour manufacturer has provided us with a check sheet. This check sheet will requires you to answer and sign a legally binding declaration.
If you have coloured your hair at home or you have had a change of medication or a tattoo, since your last visit to the Jealousi, you should advise the team immediately, and a minimum of 48 hours prior to your appointment, to enable us to schedule a new skin test. Failure to do so could lead to your colour appointment being cancelled.
