Is it safe to get a haircut?FFOL Editor 1
When making a booking for a haircut, Gash suggests being prepared with several key questions. Per Gash, ask, “Are they sanitizing the station and all tools between clients, are they wearing a mask at all times and are they changing gloves frequently? Did they get tested before returning to work? Is the salon as a team following all the guidelines and are they providing testing for their staff?” She then adds, “A lot of salons do weekly testing of all staff members and that’s a good indication to feel safe and that the salon, in general, is taking all the steps they should.”
If you do decide to go ahead with an appointment, it’s also important to be aware that the staff are risking their health just as much as you are risking yours, and you should be doing everything you can to keep them safe. “Bring your own hand sanitizer, mask, food, and beverages when you go to your appointment so you’ll reduce contact with the salon and stylist,” recommends Gash.
