Covid has really been a beast and ravaged our lives. The salon industry has been hit especially hard. When salons are closed, stylists can’t provide for their family.
We as an industry are not the problem. Half of our schooling and 80% of our licensure test and renewal testing is on infection control. In my salon, we use hospital grade disinfectant and protocols.
I decided early on in the pandemic to follow the science.
I have a indoor salon that I keep the windows wide open and the radiant heater turned up. Indoor air purifiers and essential oil diffusers and tons of large plants clean the air 24/7. A UV light comes out at night to further disinfect the surroundings.
I spent a big chunk of savings on building an outdoor extension of my Naturally Curly boutique hair salon. This took 4 months from conception to finished with the flooring build out.
A large portion of my clients and two team members are extra vulnerable to the effects of the virus.
I work every day to educate myself on alternative ways I can still create a fun and loving service with as many safety precautions as possible.
Since the state of NV doesn’t have laws on outdoor salons, I am meeting and exceeding the laws set by the state of CA and have four advanced certifications in infection control and disinfection protocols.
We can laugh and cry together (with masks on) at least a little safer. ️️
I do recommend my clients dress warm and bring a small lap blanket. I do provide lap heaters, long sleeve wizard capes and an outdoor infrared heat lamp.
We can arrange for prepaid-porch pick up of any products on most other days.
