To keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19 we have these guidelines in place.
Due to the salon size (4sqm rule), only 1 client and 1 stylist are inside at a time.
Appointments are scheduled to allow deep cleaning to be done between clients.
Ensure clients are faced away from stylist to minimise face to face contact.

All Capes and towels are used by 1 client only then washed . Tools are disinfected after each use.
If you are feeling unwell please cancel your appointment as soon as possible and reschedule.

Personal services businesses that remain open need to practice
appropriate infection control measures to protect their staff, clients
and the ACT community.
Please see below for some key measures to assist in the control of the COVID-19.
• Ensure hand washing facilities are readily available and have sufficient paper towel and liquid
soap. Hand hygiene must be performed before and after each treatment.
• Focusing on good hygiene, especially hand hygiene, will reduce the risk of becoming ill and
help to prevent the spread of germs. Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of used tissues
into a bin and wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
• If possible, place hand sanitiser for clients to use upon entry. Hand sanitiser
should contain 60-80% alcohol.

appointment bookings to prevent overlap of appointments.

• Regularly clean surfaces touched by staff and clients. Clean using a detergent based product,
followed by a hospital-grade disinfectant product, or use a combination detergent/
disinfectant product. Examples of frequently touched surfaces include door handles, bench
tops, light switches, computer keyboard, phone and EFTPOS handsets.
• Encourage “touch and go” payments to limit the handling of money.
• Increase airflow by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning.
