Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy

For 7th Heaven Salon Limited

All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It has been a challenging time for everyone and hopefully together we can manage to get back to normal slowly and with policies in place to keep us all safe and well.

We have missed being able to offer you the treatments that we know you love, and we are looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.

Our priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of. During the time the salon has been shut, I have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. I have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.

Booking Appointments
If any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, they will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that we have to cancel your appointment at short notice. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again.

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. We have amended our booking terms and conditions and you will not be charged for any appointments which you miss due to illness.

Visiting the Salon
For your safety and to maintain social distancing, we ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving.

We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.

All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety.

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.

You will have access to hand sanitiser as soon as you enter the salon and we will also have and hot water and soap to available for you to use to wash your hands with when you in the salon.

We would request that clients wear a face mask when you visit the salon and during your treatment if this is appropriate.

Please DO NOT wear gloves. If you attend wearing gloves, you will be asked to remove them. We are happy to provide you with gloves while in the salon, should require them.

Please don’t be surprised or upset if our staff use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves, face masks and aprons where appropriate.

We can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms is a priority and we can assure you that all salon towels are washed at 60 degrees C.

All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area every day and if necessary after each clients.

Our treatments
We have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and we have decided that the following treatments cannot be provided until further notice.
  • Face waxing or threading
  • Facial treatments
  • Caci treatments
  • Eyelash treatments
  • Make-up application
  • Electrolysis on the face
  • Eyebrow treatments
During your treatment
Our staff understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.

We will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments please let us know and we will do what we can to satisfy you.

After the treatment
In order to avoid handling of cash, we would prefer if you could pay for your treatment by card.

All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and that of our staff. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.

Thanks you for your understanding.
