We are into our 4th week since re-opening and we want to say a huge thank you again to everyone for their kindness, patience and overwhelming support. We are almost through the initial waiting list and everyone still on it has been emailed so apologies if this is repetitive for anyone.
So......we have a few pieces of great news.
The Girls Are Coming Back!!
We are thrilled that Stephanie and Michelle will be coming back to work in the first week of August. Stephanie is back August 5th and Michelle is back on the 6th. We will be giving them a couple of weeks to settle in, like we had to at the start. Go easy on them!!
Online Bookings Are BACK!!
We will be re-activating our online booking system this Friday, the 24th, from 10am. There have been a couple of changes, we have had to add an extra 15 minutes to most services to allow for our clean up times in between clients. If you are having any issues booking in multiple services because of this extra time just get in touch by text on 0833073399, by email on email@example.com or through Facebook messenger, and we can sort it for you. To get your correct treatment time simply deduct 15 minutes per service, excluding add-ons.
All links to the booking system on our website, Facebook and our salon app will become live on Friday morning after 10am.
Please note that we are still restricting client time in the salon per visit so if a booking exceeds that time we will get in touch to re-schedule part of it for you.
More Services and Additional Hours
We will be re-introducing more of our services, including short facial treatments, spray tan and nail art. These will be available for online booking from Friday. Lash extensions will be available from approximately the middle of August once the girls have settled in but can be booked directly with us through text, email or Facebook Messenger until they become live on online booking.
From the second week in August we will be adding some additional hours to our week as we will be able to run a shift pattern. Please note that we will have no more than 3 clients in the salon at a time. Individual staff will still be on reduced hours. Keep an eye on the COVID-19 Response page on our website for any updates www.carolinesbeautyroom.com
Dr Katherine is BACK!
Dr. Katherine and The Skin Revival Clinic are back for her first visit since lockdown. The first clinic is running this Friday and is completely full. Anyone interested in fillers, Profhilo and anti-wrinkle injectables should get in touch by text on 0833073399 and we will get you booked in. We will have a full list of dates available after Friday.
We do have one small request of you. We completely understand that things are a bit crazy right now. People are getting called back to work, rosters are changing, there is next to no childcare to name just a few problems. But....we would really appreciate it if you could give us as much time as possible should you need to cancel. We have so much to do between clients that it is very hard to try and fill a space for that day, we have gotten as little as 2 hours notice for a cancellation.
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch and don't forget to keep an eye on our website www.carolinesbeautyroom.com for all the latest salon information.
You can stay up-to-date on all our COVID-19 procedures, you will be able to book in online, you can read our blog and you can buy gift vouchers or products.
Thank you again for reading, we will see you very soon in the salon.
Please read this whole post and attached list carefully. Please note that these measures will be in place to allow us to come to grips with new ways of working, we will appreciate your co-operation and understanding as we find our feet. We will also review them every week to see what needs to stay and what needs to go.
OK, to begin, we do not have a set date for re-opening, the projected date is July 20th if other phases go well, but we are preparing for that day with the health and safety of staff, clients and our families are at the forefront of any decisions that we make.
When we re-open we will be offering a restricted number of services to begin with, in a limited number of staff hours. We will not be working to the same level as we did pre-lockdown. We will need to reduce our exposure as we will be in close contact (under 1m) for extended periods of time with multiple people in a day.
There will be a 15 minute gap between each appointment to allow the girls to finish with you, and then sanitise and disinfect their workstations and surrounds.
For the first few weeks we will most likely not be taking any new clients in to the salon, we will be offering services to those who have been what we class as regulars in our booking system for the last 2 years. We will advise when we are taking new clients again, hopefully not very long after.
Staff hours and appointment spots will be limited to reduce exposure. There will be no very long appointments available. You may find nail art and some services not available to begin with.
The type of treatments available will be limited, reviewed weekly and will be dictated by government guidelines. We will release a full list of treatments closer to re-opening when we know what we can offer.
Online booking will be suspended for the first few weeks and we will let you know as soon as we start taking bookings again.
Failure or refusal to follow these procedures may result in you being refused services. We do not want to turn anyone away but safety will come first.
If you would like a copy of this list e-mailed to you just send us your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to keep you informed and up-to-date about our preparations and plans.
