by | Mar 16, 2020 | What's New | 0 comments

While we are not encouraging people to be out and about where they don’t feel comfortable, life is still happening and there are business still running. Small, local business will be affected the hardest right now and many of them have adapted to meet current guidelines while still preserving their businesses and the livelihoods of owners and employees. San Antonio is known for its community support and while we wait for Fiesta to come next Fall, we can continue the sentiment and love of our community to the local businesses and nonprofits who need it most.

    · Continue to use paper towels to prevent spreading of germs;
    · Clean all surfaces in the salon every 30 minutes throughout the day;
    · Require our team to wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds between guests. If hand washing is not available, they must use a hand sanitizer that is 60-95% alcohol-based;
    · Request that both guests and team stay home if they are feeling unwell.
    · Suspended hand massages and makeup services;
    · Capes are washed after every use;
    · Ask that anyone with fever or respiratory symptoms not enter the salon and call to reschedule your appointment for a later date.
