The newly refurbished Beauty Spot reopens today in Uckfield. Everything has been organised to take account of Coronavirus regulations and protect clients and staff.
Owner Maria Mann says all soft furnishings have gone, along with a waiting area, and everything in the salon has been chosen to be easily cleaned.
Services are restricted, the salon isn’t allowed to do any work on faces, but Maria says they are pleased to be back in business.
Clients will be asked to wait outside until invited in by their therapist – there is a slide covering in case of rain. Temperatures will be taken and they will be asked to sanitise and wash hands.
Then they will be taken to their treatment station and all further transactions will take place there, from treatment to payment.
UV sterilisers will be used to keep the air clean and each station will be thoroughly cleaned between clients.
Maria says the number of people allowed in the salon is restricted so she asks clients to come alone, not bringing children or babies.
Staff will work in two teams and Maria says appointments are sacred. She still has many messages requesting appointments to respond to, and she appeals to clients to arrive on time, or give notice if it is not possible to attend.
She adds: “I’m looking forward to seeing you on Monday and I hope you like the salon.”
