Skin Testing & Coronavirus


Skin testing for a colour is a legal requirement and something that is very important for your safety. A skin test needs to be carried out for all new clients to colour with us, and also if you haven't had a colour with us for longer than 3 months. If you have put a box colour on your hair since your last colour with us, have had any changes in your medical condition, are taking steroids or immunosuppressants, have had  temporary black tattoo or permanent make up, or think you maybe pregnant. 

Since Covid-19 there is thought to be a possibility that since contracting covid 19 you could be more likely to react to colour. As your health is our biggest priority, this is something we do not want to chance, so we are re skin testing all clients for colour. 

A skin test must be carried out minimum 48 hours prior to your appointment, a skin test is carried out on your arm (below elbow) so please try and wear a top that we can get to your arm, we will skin test you and ask you to fill in our questionnaire then we will wipe any excess away and ask you to rinse after 45 mins. We ask you to report any reaction, e.g itching, irritation, redness or swelling to us. If more concerning report to your GP. If you have a reaction we will be unable to perform your colour.

Due to Covid 19 we have had to make some changes to the way we work.

Please read below our Covid Guidelines, these have been put in place to help keep you and the staff safe.

- By Appointment only (we currently cant accept any walkin clients, you can either call the salon or book online.)

-Please wear a mask during your service (children under 11 years are exempt)

-Please come alone to your appointment (if you are bringing a child please only one parent / guardian)

- Please re arrange your appointment if you have symptoms or have been near anyone suffering from Covid 19.

(The symptoms are:

       * Recent onset of a new continuous cough

       * High Temperature

       * Loss or change in normal sense of taste or smell

       * Waiting for test results of Covid 19 )

- Please arrive ontime (if you are early we may ask you to wait outside or in your car, and if your late we may be unable to carry out the service you require)

- There will be no magazines or refreshements (we do have some water in disposable cups)

Upon arrival at the salon you will be asked to put on your mask and sanatise your hands, you will also have to fill in a covid questionnaire.

We are regularly cleaning and sanatising and extra time has been added to appointments to allow for this.

we have also put up screens for your protection, and will be in full PPE.

Thanks for you co operation, we feel client and staff safety is very important so have implemented all these measures but we hope that you can still have an enjoyable experience and great hair
