Welcome to Number 8 Hairdressing, Truro
We are so excited to have opened again
We know some of you will be feeling excited about coming in to see us while others will be feeling somewhat nervous. It is our goal that every single one of you can feel comfortable in our salon.
I hope you understand that these following procedures are necessary, but please remember we are your friendly Number 8 Hairdressing. We are still us and we are all smiling behind our visors, we are so happy to be back in the salon helping all our wonderful clients.
Ultimately it is your decision as to whether you come for a hair appointment as it will inevitably involve an element of risk.
Please do not come to the salon for an appointment if you have a high temperature or any symptoms of coronavirus. We all need to keep each other safe.
The advice from the Government is:
Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has any of the following:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
- Check the NHS website if you have symptoms
- Please do not come to the salon if you are shielding. We know how much you want your hair done but, whilst we have made the salon as safe as we possibly can, as hairdressers we cannot keep 2 meters away from you.
Measures that we have in place in the salon:
Please arrive at the front door of the salon, which will be locked, at your allocated appointment time, late arrivals may not be able to be accommodated. Please, where possible, come alone there will not be any waiting area available.
Please wear a mouth and nose covering. Your stylist will be there ready to greet you, wearing a full face visor. If your stylist is not there waiting, they will be with you very shortly. We are staggering appointments so there should not be anybody else waiting but, if there is another client, please social distance on the pavement outside.
Your stylist will invite you into the salon. Please use the hands free sanitiser immediately, all doors will be open for less contact points and the hand rail will be disinfected between each arrival. Please follow your stylist, we are operating a one way system and they will show you how to navigate.
You will then be led to your postion where there will be a clean, freshly laundered gown – please put this on. This will be your seat for the duration of your visit.
We ask clients to keep their belongings with them, there will be a chair next to your postion to place your coat and bag. Please try not to bring too much with you.
There will be boxes of gloves available around the salon – please use them as you would like too, we want you to feel safe and comfortable.
Our toilet will be available for use, we just ask that you clean all surfaces before use with the wipes provided. We will also be cleaning very regularly thoughout the day.
The salon will be laid out to give social distancing between each client.
There will be 3 stylists and 1 assistant working each day, so with clients, this gives a maximum of 10 people in the salon at any one time.
As much as possible, all conversation and consultation needs to take place through the mirror. Your hair will be washed, this is compulsory as there will be no dry cuts. We will be using disposable towels.
If you have coloured your hair at home with a box dye, we will need to do a skin test prior to your appointment. We will discuss this when we book your appointment.
We will not be able to provide any refreshment or magazines to avoid any sharing. Please bring your own book or magazine and drink which we will ask you to take with you at the end of your appointment.
Payment will take place at the position by card only, we will no longer be taking cash. The card machine will be disinfected in front of you. Your stylist will have a tip box for you to use, if you would like to leave a cash tip.
We can make your next appointment at the hairdressing position. We would prefer not to use paper appointment cards and pens, so we will ask you to put your next appointment into your phone calendar, if possible.
We will be running an appointment only system, with 15 minutes between each appointment to allow for cleaning and disinfecting of all tools used and the hairdressing position.
Your stylist will then lead you out to the front door. Be aware that there may be another client waiting to come in, social distancing must be adhered to while leaving and entering the salon.
As the Government are running a track and trace system, by coming to the salon, you are allowing us to forward your name and contact details to any Government official or National Health England that may require it to help with track and trace.
All these risks and measures will be monitored daily and changed as we see fit.
Thank you so so much for choosing Number 8 Hairdressing as your hairdresser – we so appreciate it. We are here for you.
