Crimson Hair Studio Salon Safety Protocol for Summer 2020. Please read prior to your appointment.
Salons in Philadelphia have not yet been given the green light to open, but we are confident & hopeful that our day is coming!
We honestly want nothing more than to hug every one of you & to totally oversimplify – catch up with you about the past 4 months!
Social Distancing, Masks, & Time Constraints will limit the amount of conversations & contact we will be able to share when we first get you back in the chair. This is positive though – it represents our commitment to beauty industry recovery, as well as ensuring your Crimson experience is fulfilled in the expanded needs of managing a safe environment. Please be patient as we work through the unavoidable hiccups of re-open, including testing all new systems put into place & the overabundance of hair that needs extra styling!
ALL CLIENTS, PLEASE READ & ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PROTOCOL.
For the health of the entire community, please follow our Salon Protocol & take a moment to acknowledge the Health Release.
Salon Protocol, Spelled Out:
Arrive On Time: No Flexibility for Early or Late Arrivals, or Walk-ins. If you are more than 5 minutes late for your appointment, there is a possibility that we will not be able to re-schedule you; this is not because we are inflexible, we have a strategy in place to limit to the capacity of our room. Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to accommodate bang & neck trims.
Come Alone: Crimson Hair Studio will not have a waiting area – no guests, kids without appointments, snacks, bags, laptops. Unfortunately our snack & coffee selection, as well as the communal table seating have been removed so we can ensure social distancing. You will only be allowed on premise if you have an appointment at the current time.
Temp & Health Release Form: ALL Staff & Clients will have temp taken before entering Crimson, every day. We encourage you to not leave the premises during your appointment unless necessary. Please read & acknowledge our Health Release Form for your safety, the safety of our staff, & total environment.
Sanitization Systems Updated: We have updated everything to the highest standards, including our overall protocol, air filters, disinfection, cape & towel procedures. The entire staff has earned specialized sanitization certifications through Barbicide to create a safe & stylish environment for all!
Sanitize Hands Upon Entering, Wash Hands as necessary.
Credit Card Payments & Venmo Tipping are Encouraged. We will still have our ATM on presence if you prefer to tip in cash. Envelopes will no longer be provided for cash tips.
No Mask, No Service: Masks must be worn at all times by client & staff. Please do not take your mask off on premises. For hair services, especially color, disposable masks that wrap around ears are best. If you come without an appropriate mask, we have masks for sale, $5 each. We will no longer be able to trim mustaches or beards, or wax lips/chins.
Maintain Social Distance – Sorry, NO Hugs! Unfortunately, Social Distancing, Masks, & Time Constraints will limit the amount of conversations we will be able to share – especially when you factor in the noise of blowdryers.
Letter from Crimson Hair Studio Owner Jen, May 22, 2020
Hello everyone, hope you are all staying safe and sane! We recognize we are all working to do our best under uniquely, sometimes seemingly impossible, conditions.
As you know we are in week nine of our government mandated closure of nonessential businesses in the City of Philadelphia. The city is starting to re-open slowly, and hair salons are going to be in the last phase of re-open. We are not scheduling appointments until we have an official reopen date. Please feel free to send an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the list to schedule an appointment when the governor finally lifts the order.
My staff & I have been working diligently to establish a reopen strategy based on the safety of employees and clients. Sanitation protocols are in place, disinfecting services and products have been procured, all employees have received extended specialized certification in sanitation procedures, and our new schedule allows for social distancing.
There has been much talk and articles posted on professional beauty sites about stylists doing hair in clients’ homes: because we are all licensed through the State Board of Cosmetology & furthermore the government mandated order in place, no stylist is allowed to do hair at this time. Stylists will lose their licenses and face potential jail time. As stylists, we are not insured outside of the salon to service clients unless covered under the salons policy, which is invalid due to the staff being “unemployed”.
We are so looking forward to seeing everyone as soon as we can produce our unparalleled service in our safe, sanitized, regulated environment. To hold you over, Crimson’s online store is up and running for products, styling tools, root touchup kits and glosses! Your support of myself, my staff, and the salon has been overwhelming to say the least! I am reminded every day why I became a hairstylist and am so grateful for all the connections I have made and the team I have built! Crimson is stronger than ever and ready to get everyone back to looking and feeling their best! I am always just an email away and look forward to hearing from all of you and answering any questions at all you may have!
Thank you again everyone. Stay safe & see you all soon!
