LaBara Salon Re-opens Friday May 1, 2020
On May 1, 2020 LaBara Salon will re-open. It will be a new salon experience as we adhere to guidelines set forth by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetologists and Barbers, OSHA, CDC, and the Georgia Governor.
Our top priority will be for you to safely enjoy your beauty and we ask that you take full precautions to assist us in preventing the spread of COVID-19. We have put together a list of steps and guidelines to help you feel comfortable and confident in our environment at LaBara Salon.
HOURS & APPOINTMENTS
We are increasing our hours and expanding our days open in the salon to now include Monday, however in order to safely social distance we have changed our schedules a bit.
We will only be able to have two stylists and one assistant work at the same time, and each stylist will only be taking one client at a time. Due to this, we ask for patience and understanding if you have trouble finding appointment availability, or if your standing appointment needs to be moved or changed in any way.
We continue to ask that you manage and schedule all appointments online.
PRIOR TO YOUR SALON VISIT
In order to safely follow the guidelines set forth, we ask that you please review the following guidelines prior to making an appointment and visiting LaBara Salon.
Please refrain from coming in if you or anyone you are in close contact with has experienced COVID-19 symptoms, or been exposed to COVID-19 in any way. In addition, we ask that you do the same if you have participated in large group activities or traveled by air in the past 30 days.
Please make arrangements to come alone to your appointment. We will not allow anyone in the salon that does not have an appointment with us.
You will be required to wear a mask during the entirety of your service in the salon, so we highly suggest purchasing one prior to your visit. If you are receiving a hair color service, please be advised that hair color may get on the mask due to the ear straps on some masks.
Food and drinks will not be allowed in the salon chair during your visit. You may bring a bottle of water only and step outside the salon should you need a drink.
We will not be allowing personal belongings to hang in the bathroom, so please keep that in mind when dressing for the salon. You will still be required to wear a robe but will need to either wear an old shirt you are not worried about getting damaged or wear something that easily fits in your handbag.
PREPPING YOUR HAIR FOR YOUR SALON VISIT
In order to limit the spread of germs we will NOT be providing blow drys during any service at the salon. Please be sure to prep your hair prior to arrival so we can provide your service by doing the following based on the service you plan to receive.
Haircuts: All haircuts will be done on clean 100% dry hair. Please arrive with your hair clean and 100% dry.
Hair Color Services: Your color will be rinsed, shampooed, and conditioned, but you will leave with towel-dried damp hair.
Haircut & Color Service: If you are scheduled for a haircut and color please arrive with your hair clean and 100% dry. Your haircut will be done first on dry hair.
Hair Extension Application/Maintenance: Please arrive with your hair clean and 100% dry.
Keratin Treatments: Keratin treatments will not be offered during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
