COVID 

Allergy Alert Tests

 

For all colour appointments booked with us at Elements Hair and Beauty we require you to come in for an Allergy Alert Test, this applies to both existing and new clients. This needs to be done at least 48 hours before your appointment, but no more than 7 days beforehand.

 

We are performing the AAT as it is something that has been introduced into our industry due to heightened sensitivity that some clients have been unfortunate enough to experience as a side effect of them having the COVID-19 virus and also after the vaccine. 

 

We have been fortunate enough to have had only a few clients with sensitivity issues, but it has highlighted to us why the additional safety requirement has been added to our industry. If you do not attend your AAT, it will result in us having to cancel your appointment. 

 

When coming for your AAT, please come to the side door (the one on Newfoundland Way) and ring the bell. Someone will be with you as soon as possible. Coming to this entrance will mean fewer people crowding the main entrance. 

Safety Measures in Place

Following the close contact service guidance released by the government we have put some additional measures in place to ensure the safety of our staff and clients.

  • A reduced number of clients and staff in the salon at any one time. 

  • Allergy Alert Tests are required at least 48 hours prior to (but no more than 7 days before) any colour appointment whether you are a new or existing client 

 

  • All staff and clients have their temperature checked on arrival

 

  • Clients are asked to wait outside on arrival – your stylist will greet you and take you straight to wash your hands

  • From 08 August, clients must wear masks when inside the salon

 

  • Visors and masks are worn by all our stylists

 

  • Disposable gowns, towels, aprons and gloves are used. These are changed after every client

 

  • Salon tools and workstations are cleaned and disinfected between each client

 

  • Perspex screens have been installed at the wash basins and reception. The workstations are used in a way that allows social distancing

 

  • Increased frequency of cleaning throughout the salon

 

  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the salon

  • We are not accepting cash payments. Please pay contactless where possible.

 

We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our staff and clients and respectfully ask that our clients do the same.
