Your safety and well-being
Your safety is our priority. We have put systems in place to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable visit, and our team are protected.
- Please book appointments in advance and follow all guidance given by our team. If you can, avoid peak times (lunchtime and evenings).
- Appointments have been extended to give our team time between guests to clean and sterilise their work area/equipment and to prepare to greet you at the agreed time.
- For social distancing, we are restricting the number of people within the salon at any one time. Appointments are timed specifically to minimise overcrowding ensuring a safe environment for you and our team. If you book via the app or online, we may call you to move the appointment slightly to avoid overcrowding.
- Please arrive alone for your appointment. Do not bring or invite friends, family or children into the salon.
- Children’s hair appointments (when accompanied by a guardian), must be booked at off-peak times for social distancing reasons.
Arriving for your appointment
- To avoid overcrowding we may call you to ask you to arrive a few minutes before or after the actual appointed time – or ask you to wait outside the salon – to avoid overcrowding. We appreciate your understanding.
- If you use The Stress Exchange App, you can self-check-in. Your stylist or therapist will be alerted and will greet you at our reception area.
- On arrival please remove your own face mask and keep it safely stored away from others. We will provide you with a mask to wear during your service. Please wear this throughout your treatment unless asked to remove it by your stylist/therapist, and take it away with you.
- Hand sanitiser is available throughout the salon. Please sanitise your hands on arrival.
- For safety reasons we’re not offering a cloakroom service. If possible, please do not wear jackets or carry more than one bag, as you will need to keep your belongings with you throughout your visit.
