Our New Hours Are:
Monday 12pm-8pm Tuesday 10am-10pm Wednesday 10am-10pm Thursday 10am-10pm Friday 10am-10pm Saturday 10am-6pm

We are closely monitoring the government and industry advice, and in our commitment to ensuring that our infection control procedures are current and effective, have made some changes in how we operate under their best guidance. When it is time for your next appointment, you will see some new processes that we have put in place to help protect our clients and team members. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you book and when you come in next:

• Before your appointment, you will be asked to stay outside until we are ready to seat you. Simply call or text us upon arrival and we will let you know when we are ready to welcome you in.
• We will ask you some questions upon arrival for your appointment in addition to recording your temperature. NO ONE with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be permitted in the salon.
• Clients and salon employees must wash their hands with soap and water upon arrival to the salon. Staff must wash again between serving customers and before and after breaks.
• Both clients and salon employees must wear face masks. No hugs or shaking hands as we continue social distancing as much as possible.
• Separated stations, sinks, and any items such as magazines and drink service have been temporarily removed.
• Clients may not bring people with them unless they absolutely rely on another person for mobility.

We apologize for this ongoing inconvenience and hope that together with these precautions, we will overcome this virus. These protocols will continue to be refined and adjusted as needed and we will keep you informed every step of the way. We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Most of all, we’d like to thank you for being our guest. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back. We miss you and are excited to see you again soon.

Best in Health,
