Colabella hair & beauty
Our re-opening plan to ensure social distancing and a safe environment for you to visit our salons.
Since the Government announced its ‘road map’ towards the easing of restrictions and the re-opening of the services that we have all enjoyed in the past. We are now in a position to update you...
The re-opening of our Colabella salons is likely to be the 4th of July but we all know this continues to be dependent upon all of us continuing to follow the Government’s advice in order that the transmission of the virus can be controlled.
We have been working exceedingly hard taking advice from industry experts the NHBF, GOV.UK the NHS and Public Health England, to develop a framework of operating protocols so that we can provide you with the necessary confidence to resume using our salon services at Colabella when the time is right.
We are putting in place the necessary measures to ensure you our clients and our team are safe when we re open.
1 We will ensure that our staff are safe and ready to welcome you, and they will have received the necessary training for the new way of working, also with a full deep clean of our salons before we reopen.
2 We will look at our services to ensure they are ready to receive you in a safe environment.
3 We will put in place new and heightened Safety and Hygiene systems.
4 We will have changed some of our services to apply social distancing. We will also be removing some equipment in areas as to ensure social distancing. We will be using an advance booking system that limits the number of clients at any one time and temporarily changing some of our opening hours to allow for daily deep cleaning. Clients who come to the salon will have a no contact temperature check if your temperature is high you will not be able to enter. Due to the closeness that we work with our clients you will need to wear a mask and use hand a sanitizer at the entry of the salon. If you do not wear a mask we cannot allow you in the salon as there may be a risk to other clients and our team. Some people show no symptoms and could pass on the virus without knowing, so we hope you understand our position. We are taking much guidance from industry officials.
5 We will soon be calling clients on the waiting list. We will not accept walk in bookings so you must have an advanced booking to visit the salon. We will keep you up to date via our social media and website to ensure that you are kept fully informed of the necessary changes we have to make and further updates as they develop.
We look forward to seeing you soon...
