Things to Know For Your First Visit Back to the Salon

Spring is finally here, and over the past few weeks, we’ve begun to see some restrictions being eased by the Government following the lockdown. But what does this mean for visiting your beauty therapist? 

At this point, it’s a good time to remember the precautions that have been put in place by other businesses during this time, such as the use of appropriate PPE, safe distances and ensuring that you feel safe and supported by others.

With this in mind, we’ve collated some advice surrounding Coronavirus to help you, however, please be sure to use these in addition to Government guidelines and advice – especially since the situation is still rapidly changing.

Questions About You & Your Health

Prior to booking your appointment, you may be asked a series of questions regarding your health, along with if you’ve had any contact with confirmed cases of coronavirus in the last 14 days to ensure that you’re safe to enter the premises.

These questions may include: 

  1. Have you been away/abroad?
  2. Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?​
  3. Have you experienced the following symptoms now or in the past 14 days?​ Such as a temperature, dry cough, body aches, headaches, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of taste and/or smell, diarrhoea.
  4. Are you or your immediate family/friends in a high-risk category?

Please be aware that if your answer is yes to any of these questions, that your request for a treatment may be declined.

Feeling nervous? Don’t hesitate to ask your beauty therapist any questions you may have ahead of visiting the salon for your treatment.

Your Arrival

Due to the Coronavirus, your next experience of arriving at the salon may be very different from those of the prior to the outbreak.

You will more than likely be met with new social distancing rules between yourself and other clients, which may include staggered appointments and the removal of any reading material in the waiting area or reception, to ensure that you and the staff members are safe. We’ve spoken to many therapists who are advising clients to bring their own magazines or books from home to enjoy as they wait.

You may also be required to use hand sanitiser once you’ve entered the premises to further ensure safety, along with being offered a disposable face mask.

Enhanced Cleaning Processes

We know that we’re not the only ones that are looking forward to feeling ourselves again with a fabulous Sienna X spray tan or treatment, and we’re sure that you may also be at this stage.

However, with salons opening their doors to potentially many clients, please be mindful that your beauty therapist may have to follow strict and enhanced cleaning processes to keep themselves, other members of staff and you safe from the virus.

This may mean more time being left between appointments to allow for cleaning down surfaces and equipment, along with ensuring they are protected with a fresh set of PPE.

Your Departure

Now that you’re feeling like your glowing goddess self, you may be asked to also dispose of any PPE or treatment disposables yourself so that there’s a continuous reduction of contact.

Alongside this, we’ve also discovered that many therapists and salons will be opting for a contactless card payment where possible to help lower the risk of infection further.

Please remember, that these are only advisory guidelines that have been provided to our Sienna X Therapists to help keep them, as well as their clients safe as they return back to work. For further information, you can visit the Government website here or World Health here
