Salon Lockdown

Hope you are all well. I’m writing to you on Wednesday morning and it’s feels like 2 weeks have flashed by since last Saturday. As you all will already now know, all 4 House of Beauty salons have been shut and will stay shut until Boris tells us to re- open.
It was a difficult decision to shut up shop as I know how many of you rely on us so I was glad when a firm order was given to shut so that I could stop dithering and close. We are so close when carrying out treatments there’s just no way can we work at a 2 meter distant without putting you at risk. I was starting to worry that as therapists we would be the super spreaders who could potentially be making everyone ill.
I spent most of Monday getting my ducks in a row to make sure the salons will be financially secure whilst we are closed.
I spent most of yesterday driving over to each salon to make sure it was safe (i.e., unplug everything drain machines ect) to leave for however long we need to be empty.
I will be using, this enforced isolation to look at working on new plans for the salons and looking into potential new treatments or services that we could offer and improving all our working systems that we already have.
Environ has already put into place virtual training courses over the next 2 months so we will also be using this time to update and refresh our facial training and I am hoping some of our other beauty partners will be offering a similar service.
Environ are also offering direct client deliveries so if you need any product deliveries please get in touch either by email or through our facebook page and I will arrange orders with you there. I am looking at setting up an online shop to go alongside our gift voucher page on the website but for now please message us directly.
For anyone who needs to get their Gels off I have made up DIY removal kits so let me know as we can send those out too. £15.00
We will be keeping our Face book page updated with fun and informative posts and even a few competitions to stave off the boredom and I will update our website blog regularly as I will have time now to do it.
One thing I will have time for whilst I’m at home with my boys is to find out what we can do for you? Is there any you would like from us going forward?
Are there any treatments or services we don’t currently offer that you would be interested in?
I will keep you regularly updated with all things House of Beauty over the coming weeks and I hope you are keeping mentally and physically well at home with your family.
