Covid-19 Precautions and Guidelines

We are excited to be back in the salon! Clients coming to the salon will notice several changes we have in place for everyone’s safety. Our salon has been thoroughly cleaned/disinfected and all staff have been certified to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 by completing the Barbicide Certification for Covid-19. Please also note that due to Covid-19 and the extensive cost associated with reopening and serving our clientele, our price list has changed.  An updated set of guidelines for clients is below and we encourage you to review them prior to visiting the salon.

Due to the current guidelines in place, we are limited in our flexibility for booking.

We very much look forward to seeing everyone. We thank you for your patience during the process of reopening.

While we cannot eliminate all possible risks, our goal is to minimize those risks. The rules below are in place for the safety of both our clients and our staff.

Beyond adhering to regular and standard common-sense hygiene practices, we are also implementing the following practices:
