I have received quite a few calls and emails today (June 4th) asking whether the salon is reopening on June 15th
Sadly there has been no announcement from the government to suggest this is happening, only speculation in the press
I find it as frustrating as you all, I can only suggest you check on the government website for updates regularly and watch the daily briefings on BBC news. The newspapers have to create news and during these uncertain times we all cling on to the hope that salons will reopen. Newspapers often bring up information about groups lobbying for changes. I’m a member of the Hair & Barber Council so am aware they have been lobbying for some time, this group is often mentioned by the press. But the date of July 4th still stands, we are in the phase 3 category still
I have been incredibly busy organising my reopening plus offering the pre cut service, posting products and talking to lots of you which has been great
There is a lot to do to make sure everyone feels safe upon arriving at the salon
Please check for updates regarding the reopening through officials sources. I do this frequently to help me with the salon updates
Here’s a link to the FAQ’s on the GOV.UK website which is always updated.
It confirms salons are part of phase 3 in point 3.3
This isn’t to say we wont reopen sooner, which is why I am not starting to book appointments too prematurely in case of any changes
Remember we are all in this together, I’ve outlined a structured plan for a while now so you all hopefully understand the process. In the coming weeks appointments will start to be rebooked once we know for certain the date salons will be re opening, I will also outline how appointments will be scheduled allowing time to disinfect the salon in between clients, people turning up on the appointments time. Mask and gloves availability, hand sanitisers in place, I have a thermometer which also checks temperatures without contact so everyone knows that when entering I have covered all areas to help you feel safe.
I hope this offers reassurance to you all, it’s been a very difficult time for everyone, but we will all be back in the salon soon laughing behind the curtains
