Post Lockdown, we are having to implement new procedures, including new staff working rotas, new opening hours and exacting health and safety procedures to include self-distancing. The salon will be zoned to ensure social distancing, as advised by the government, between styling units and backwashes for your and our safety. We also have several other guidelines which are listed below which we ask you to follow to allow us to operate safely and preserve the health of our team and our clients.

The salon will be open 7 days a week. Monday through Saturday 8am to 8pm and Sundays 9-3

  1. Please do not attend the salon if You, or anyone you live with is unwell.
  2. Please arrive exactly at the time of your appointment as there will not be a waiting area in the salon.
  3. Please attend the salon wearing your mask and remain wearing it at the backwash area. You may remove it during your service at the discretion of your stylist, but please wear it to move around the salon.
  4. Please do not enter the reception area if there is already one person with each Receptionist.
  5. Please queue outdoors when waiting to enter the salon.
  6. Please attend the appointment alone including appointments for children over 12.
  7. Please use the hand sanitiser on entering the salon.
  8. Please do not bring coats, bags, scarves, jewellery, shopping, or personal items into the salon. The cloakroom is closed, and we cannot accommodate any storage of personal items on surfaces.
  9. Magazines or books will NOT be available in the salon for you to read, so please bring your own and carry it on your person at all times if you wish to read.
  10. We shall have a limited refreshment menu to serve in paper cups and we ask you to dispose of your own trash into a bin. This will be served to clients waiting to have colour developing.
  11. Please always maintain social distancing as per government guidelines.
  12. Please do not come into the salon to make subsequent appointments or purchase retail, please telephone or email.
  13. Online booking is suspended now and until all lockdown appointments are made
  14. Payment must be by card as no cash payments will be processed.
  15. A deposit of 50% will be taken at the time of booking for every appointment. Unfortunately, we must now implement a strict 24-hour cancellation policy or loss of deposit due to limited availability and longer appointment times.
  16. Every appointment will have a £6 hygiene surcharge added to the bill (until the world returns to normality!) This is to cover the additional costs of all disposable one time use of gowns, towels, capes, gloves, masks etc
  17. Due to stylist doing less hours with longer appointments times we are having to suspend any discount schemes we have run in the past.
  18. If you wish to give a gratuity, please give directly to the Stylist/Apprentice, who will have a personal box, and not to the reception team, as we will not be carrying any change in the salon and therefore it cannot be added to your card payment..
  19. Please use the disabled toilet only (in the upper salon area) during your visit, and only if absolutely necessary. Please let a team member know immediately after use so it can be sanitised.
  20. Please do not handle the products either in salon or in reception retail area. A team member will assist you.
  21. Sadly, at the moment, children’s (under 12) and infant hair appointments will be very limited as this would entail 2 persons attending one appointment. We shall make available 3-4 slots per day at a specific time of day when we will be able to accommodate these appointments. Please note that the child chairs will not be in use as this would be very difficult to sanitise due to the number of buttons etc. Your child must be able to sit on the booster seat. Guidelines permitting, we hope to adjust this in the near future.

We are excited to see you back in CRC and sorting out your lockdown hair, albeit under very different circumstances. Stay Safe CRC xx
