Covid 19 Response

How we plan to stay safe.

As of May 20th, 2020 we will be able to offer services again. This comes with a strict set of guidelines from the governor of Connecticut. A complete explanation of the guidelines can be found on the https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/DECD/Covid_Business_Recovery/CTReopensHairBarbershopsC4V1.pdf?la=en


Bulleted below are safeguards listed on the ct.gov site in which we intend to implement. 


This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Capacity limit of 50% for businesses that reopen. We will only be offering one appointment at a time per stylist (unless you live with the other client, at which point you will be in the salon with only them). Please keep children at home unless they are there for an appointment. Our 2 stations are 6 feet apart and we have made an additional station available in a separate room for those clients who may want an extra level of comfort. This will NOT be available for everyone, but may be requested. 
  • Strict cleaning and disinfection protocols. We will go above our typical cleaning measures and clean common areas repeatedly through the day. We have disinfected the entire salon for reopening. We have removed items in the common areas such as magazines, coffee station and water. Unfortunately, they will no longer be available for self service. We have added no touch garbage cans, no touch paper towel dispensers, and no touch soap dispensers. Our reception area is standing room only. When you arrive for you appointment we ask that you text the salon and we will text back when it is safe for you to come in. Please leave all personal belongings in your car except for a form of payment. If you choose to bring anything additional, we will ask that you keep it with you at the station you are provided. We have also added plexiglass to our counters as well as at our reception desk in an attempt to increase safeguards. Between clients stylists will obtain clean smocks and capes IN FRONT of the clients from a designated cart, to reassure them they have not yet been used.  
  • Those in high-risk groups (comorbidities) and over the age of 65 should continue to stay safe and stay home. This safeguard is meant to keep you safe. Please stay home if you do not feel comfortable returning, regardless of your age or preexisting health conditions.  
  • Facemasks should continue to be worn. You will be asked to wear a mask that goes around you ears, not your entire head. Please note that it may get color on it. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you to use. Stylists will be wearing one as well. We understand this may not be comfortable, but it is what we are being asked to do to keep ALL safe. 


We are so thankful to be going back to work, but we must remind you we are going to do our best to keep YOU safe. We kindly ask that you do the same. If you are feeling any symptoms, have a fever, or have been exposed to anyone who may have COVID, we ask that you do your part to keep EVERYONE safe, and stay home. 


We are confident that having a "boutique" style salon will afford us the ability to keep a safe environment for our clients. If at any time you feel that there is a BETTER way to do so, please speak up. We will make changes we feel are warranted as we navigate through these first few weeks. If you feel we are not following the guidelines set forth for our industry, the Governor has asked you to call 211 and report your findings. 


Thank you for reading through our COVID RESPONSE and please remember to be patient and kind through this process. No one WANTS to be doing this, but together we will get through this!


***For anyone interested in donating to the Shoreline Soup Kitchen when you come to your appointment, we will have a bin located in the reception area to drop can goods and dry food. There are many families depending on this food to help lessen the burden so many of us have been faced with due to COVID-19. We appreciate your donation!
