So last Thursday we waited with baited breath to see if the Government would finally give us a date to re-open the salon but what we didn’t expect was them to say this MONDAY!
This came as a bit of a shock to us all when we heard the “quickly“ announced date as we were lead to believe it would be around the 27th July which would have given us plenty of time to get ready!
We all met in the salon on Friday to finalise our reopening plan and decided that the best thing would be to open on Wednesday 15th as it would give us a few days to get everything in place.
You may already know but a the moment there are treatment restrictions in place and we are unable to carry out any treatments on the face, this includes:
Brow Treatments - Brow Waxes, Brow Tints
Eyelash Treatments - Eyelash Extensions, Eyelash Tints, Eyelash Lifts
Facial waxing - Brow Waxes, Lip & Chin Waxes
Facials - self explanatory
Caci Facials - Electrical Facials, Microcurrent, Microdermabrasion etc
But the good news it we can do manicures, shellac/gel polish, pedicures and body waxing.
We have implanted lots of procedures to ensure we can offer you a safe treatment and environment when you visit us. We have have a hand sanitising station at the front of the salon, we have spaced our downstairs nail desk 2 metres apart and have limited them to 2 desks (we previously had 3 in row) we will not be using the reception desk, will take your contactless payment and make your appointments at the nails desk, pedicure chair or treatment room to reduce contact and movement within the salon. We have decided not to offer body treatments & massage for the time being as we would be enclosed within a smaller space and there is a lot more skin contact. We have more hand sanitisers placed throughout the salon. Covid -19 Health Forms will be sent to all clients 24hrs before their appointments. And of course we have allocated time between each client to allow for cleaning our work areas and changing our require ppe.
We will be wearing visors, masks & gloves through out our treatments until we are advised that we can reduces this. We have carried out a full risk assessment of the salon and are satisfied that we can offer you a safe salon.
As you will know Beautylicious has always had high standards of hygiene but just to add the salon was stripped of all furnishing * deep cleaned, once when we closed at the beginning of lockdown and also again today!
Of course we are very excited to be back doing what we love even if we cant do everything and i have to say we are also a little nervous. Its like that first day back at school after the summer holidays ONLY LONGER.
Its such a shame that we cant offer you a full treatment menu at the moment but I’m sure it wont be long, but if you cant have your normal treatment why not consider trying something you’ve never had before perhaps a deluxe manicure. Maybe you’ve never had a pedicure at Beautylicious, go on give it a try! We will welcome you with open arms (although we wont be able to actually hug you) but of course if you don‘t feel ready to go out and about we completely understand and we would love to see you again in the future.
And if your not ready to join us just yet make sure your signed up to receive our emails and we will keep you update with any changes or news from the salon. You can do that by signing up on the contact page of the website.
On that note I’d just like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported us through out lockdown, anyone who bought a gift voucher, retail product, pedicure in box, facial in a box and our tailor made postal pamper packs, left us a fabulous review or even those that simply shared our facebook posts and keep our social media pages going. You have a been amazing!
Love & Best Wishes
