Hey guys, just me! Hope you are all keeping well and safe.
Ive had a lot of questions from friends, family and customers in regards to how it feels being back in the salon so I thought Id write up a quick post on here to say hello and give you an update on how I am feeling and how its been returning back to work!
Honestly being back in the salon has been Amazing! Its so nice to be able to see all my beautiful clients and getting back to somewhat of a new form of normality. At first it felt very uncertain or should I say nerve wrecking when you just don't know how it would be or what to expect. The first day to be honest I had a mix of emotions, overall I just felt very nervous and excited at the same time, You feel anxiety levels constantly rising because I hadn't done by job in so many months so many thoughts were running through my head, however soon as I came in to the salon, had my first client, soon as I picked up my scissors it all came rushing back! All those emotions just turned to happy and exciting, all the doubts I had disappeared and the adrenaline was keeping me going and I generally feel a better me and I feel even better at what I do than before!
With the virus still around ( I mean its not like its going any time soon!) with numbers and cases rising especially now I still feel on edge, however I know I'm doing all I can and following the correct procedures which helps put my mind at ease a little, I have to thank all my customers that have helped and followed procedures to make being in the salon more of a smooth running. Before clients arrive I do ask and check they don't have cold/flu or covid symptoms and are told if anything does arise they are to immediately reschedule their appointment, I do a temperature check on arrival, I also ask again to ensure they don't have any symptoms and are asked to sanitise their hands before going entering salon, all clients are to wear a face mask at all times during their time in the salon. Myself as the stylist I am wearing a visor and mask at all times, and gloves are being worn whilst colour services are happening. I sanitise my hands in front of clients before starting. I am using disposable capes and towels which go straight in the bin after use and I am also sanitising down the salon before and after clients.
As of 24/09/2020 we now have a QR code for clients to use in the salon this is now a new requirement that has been put in place by the government.
I am making sure I follow all the procedures to keep myself, my clients and my family safe, this is of course to keep your minds at ease to know we are doing all we can.
As things keep changing every week I am making sure I am keeping on top of things. If you have any questions or needing any guidance when coming in to the salon please don't hesitate to get in touch, I am more than happy to discuss things with you. My aim since opening the salon is to bring you a relaxing and peaceful vibe and even though we have got these measures in place and coming to the salon may not always put those same thoughts and vibes in your head I promise I am continuing to bring this vibe to you!
I am just so glad I am able to do at least half of my job at the moment which is being back in the salon doing what I love. Shamefully the other half of my business has had a huge effect which is apart of the wedding industry which has just had new regulations put in place, however I will leave this for another post! For now lets continue with the positivity in the salon!
I hope you have enjoyed the read and I really hope I have put your minds at ease knowing the measures we have put in place for you to come back in and have your hair services done safely.
More blogs coming soon! Love to you all
