What to expect when you visit Wink Hair Studio

We want to assure you that we are taking the health and safety of our clients, ourselves, and our families very seriously as we plan for reopening the salon. We have implemented new, and strengthened our existing safety and sanitation procedures in regards to COVID-19. Below is an overview of what you can expect when you return to Wink for your appointment. Your stylist will contact you about rebooking.


BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT 

-Only 2 stylists maximum will be working at Wink at any time, each with only one guest. 

-All clients and stylists will be required to wear a mask while in the salon. Clients will need to wear a behind the ear style mask to avoid having to work around or remove straps. If you're coming for color service, color will get on your mask, plan accordingly.  You should plan to provide your own mask, we can not guarantee that we will have masks available. You will be turned away if you do not have a mask and cancellation policies may apply.  If you cannot wear a mask due to health reasons, you should make arrangements with your stylist before booking an appointment. 

-Please arrive on-time for your appointment, we have temporarily removed our waiting area to limit the number of people inside at one time, so if you arrive early you will need to wait outside...6 feet apart from others please. We allow 4 persons total in the salon at any given time.

 

-Please come to your appointment alone (no extra guests or children) for the time being. -again we are limiting occupancy to 4 persons total in the salon at a time. 

-If you are coming for color, please note that we no longer offer gowns or space for changing clothes. Please dress accordingly for a color service, in loose neckline tops that are easily tucked out of the way of hair color. 

-If you or a household member has been diagnosed with and are currently living with COVID-19, we ask that you contact your stylist and request to please reschedule.  

-If for any reason you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or generally do not feel well, please reschedule.

-We are following strict sanitation and disinfecting procedures all day long and between each and every client. 

    

WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO THE SALON

-Please wait outside until you are  invited in by your stylist. Your stylist will have a plan for contacting you when she is ready for you to come inside, probably via text, wave or smile.  

-You may be asked by your stylist to have your temperature taken using a no-touch digital thermometer. You will be asked to answer health questions related to classic COVID-19 symptoms before your service is started. 

-You will be asked to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer upon entry.

-There will be floor markings to help remind you about social distancing and direct your routes within the salon. 

-We removed stations, dryers and extra chairs to allow for better flow of people. 

-We will continue to practice social distancing of at least 6 feet inside the salon (except between you and your stylist during your service). Please keep maximum distance available from other stylists and clients.

-You will find hooks for your jackets and bags at your stylist’s station rather than the front of the salon. Please limit your belongings to just the necessities for your service.

 

DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT

-All stylists and guests are required to wear a mask at all times while in the salon and throughout their entire appointment.

-Please refrain from eating or drinking during your appointment. 

-We are sorry that we will not be able to provide magazines for entertainment at the time being. We will have our (spotty) wi-fi available. 

-Cut and color drapes are (as always!) laundered after each client. 

 

-Hugging, handshaking and anything other than the required contact to provide your service will be avoided at this time. Smiles, air hugs and laughter are encouraged and welcomed!

 

-We are required to place a cloth over your face during shampoo services for your protection, and for ours. 

 

-We have 2 HEPA air filters that will be running throughout your visit, and the door or window will be open (when the weather allows)  for maximum fresh air exchange.
