*Appointment guests only- to minimize exposure at this time we ask no extra friends, family, or walk in’s are allowed at this time. If you child is getting a haircut and is unable to be left alone, then you may remain inside of salon during service. If you have multiple children with appointments back to back, we kindly ask only one child and one parent inside salon at a time, please plan accordingly. We know that this is not ideal, but this will be temporary.
*Around the ear masks are suggested for salon visits, this allows stylist to perform services safely. If you do not have an over the ear mask, we will have disposable ones available. Masks must always be worn.
*Sanitize/ temperature check upon arrival- we will do a quick no touch temperature check.

gloves, sanitizer, and alcohol wipes available. We have a UV sanitation box to sanitize cell phone, keys, and credit card if you would like.
*Blow-drys- This is not advised during Phase II. Certain services such as color,highlighting,balayage, etc will require us to wash your hair. We will apply proper products and set your hair to allow for an air dry style. If you are receiving just a haircut, we can offer two solutions:
Option one: Dry cutting- Shampoo and blow dry your hair the day of or night before your appointment. Arrive with hair down in natural state(no elastics or clips). We will dry cut your hair and then style with hot iron or flat iron.
Option two: We shampoo your hair at salon, cut as normal and then set your hair with proper products to allow hair to air dry naturally.
*Food & Beverage- will be temporarily closed. At this time we ask, not eating be allowed in the salon. You may bring a covered beverage with you.
