We have additional PPE including visors/goggles and type 2 face masks which our staff will be wearing during your service.

We also have hand sanitizers on all sections.

When you visit the salon please wait outside the salon at your allocated appointment time and a member of staff will come out and bring you in as soon as they are ready for you.

You will have your temperature taken before you enter the salon and will be asked to use our hand sanitizer as you enter.
