The last few months have been very difficult for everyone both personally and professionally. The coronavirus pandemic resulted in a nationwide UK lockdown which meant that the hair and beauty industry closed down for several months.
However, from Monday 13th July 2020, beauty salons and beauty services in England have been given the green light to reopen with enhanced hygiene measures in place. This is great and welcome news for the industry (as well as those customers who were perhaps getting creative with their appearance) and FAB Aesthetics! Normality can partially resume. We can hear the “hallelujah!” chorus now - this means that manicures, massages pedicures and body waxes are all able to restart.
So, with beauty salons reopening - what is allowed ?
Although beauty salons are allowed to reopen from 13th July, this does not mean all treatments and services can resume as normal straight away. We know, we know, it is bittersweet for all those wanting a complete pamper session with all different types of treatment.
Facial treatments are allowed from 1st August
Any treatments that involve touching another person’s face such as facials, eyebrow threading, remain off-limits at the minute. Facial treatments will resume at beauty salons from the 1st August. So only a few weeks longer to wait before you can finally get your eyebrows threaded, microbladed, waxed or tinted! This also means that people can begin getting eyelash treatments, dermarolling, dermaplaning and having makeup professionally applied.
Bookings by appointment only
No walk-ins are allowed, it must all be by appointment only. Staff in beauty salons must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face coverings, visors or screens.
New record keeping
Businesses must also keep a record of staff and customers and share these details with the NHS Track and Trace programme when asked.
