A return to work

The last few months have been strange to say the least, what would normally be a busy wedding season for me, looks a little different! Most of my 2020 brides have made the decision to reschedule their wedding dates so whilst I’m enjoying a quieter summer season now – next year is looking pretty busy already!

For those of you that have booked with me and moved your date then I wanted to take an opportunity to thank you.  Not only for supporting my business and booking me but also for your patience while I rearranged everything and got myself organized! I’m honestly really excited to join you at your wedding day and it will be so worth the wait! 

The government recently announced that hair dressers can return to work as of July 4th.  As yet, we have no official guidance as to when beauty and make up will be allowed to return. This means that while I could offer hair only, I’m unable to offer to make up services at this time. As soon as anything changes and I can resume wedding hair and make up preview sessions and trials I will be in touch with everyone to let them know and book them in! I have really missed meeting with my brides, hearing about their wedding plans and getting excited with you all! I’ve missed creating beautiful hair styles and I’ve really really missed creating your wedding make up looks, helping to transform you from your everyday self into the most beautiful brides!

Based on the guidelines given things are going to look a little different. I don’t have the same job I had four months ago and will be taking extra care to ensure that I can keep both myself, and my clients safe. This might look something like this:

I’ll be wearing a visor –

This is a government requirement. I will be wearing a plastic visor covering my face.  I may also be wearing a mask, please bring your own mask to the appointment.

I may wear gloves –

Most of you are more than familiar with me wearing gloves for hair colour but should I need to then I may wear gloves for other services now too.

Sanitise –

I will sanitise my hands often, and I may ask you to do the same upon arrival and upon leaving our appointment. You will also notice that there will be regular cleaning of surfaces, products, and tools. This is mandatory for every service and every client so please do not be concerned if you see me cleaning more regularly than usual.

Cancellation –

Please let me know if you feel unwell at all before your appointment. I will be happy to reschedule your session at no additional cost. If you have a temperature please do not attend your appointment.

Timing –

It’s even more important than ever I keep to the timings of my appointment so that I have enough time to clean and sanitise correctly between clients.  Please take note of your appointment time and arrive on time. If you are coming to my studio then please wait in the car until your allocated start time and I will come out to collect you as there are no waiting facilities.

Drinks –

Usually I would offer you a drink however I am unable to do this at present. Please feel free to bring your own bottle of water with you.

Group bookings –

At the moment I am only able to offer one appointment at a time, to one person at a time. I know that often Brides love to come with other members of the bridal party but currently, in order to adhere to safety guidelines this is not possible. I am however more than happy to take videos/photos etc for you to send to everyone and they are more than welcome to join in virtually should they wish!

If you have any questions or you’d like to chat about how these new rules affect you then please do give me a call. I’m still taking booking for 2021 weddings so make sure you get in early if you have a specific date in mind – the diary is filling fast!
