Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention & Control Policy -
Zara - Beautiful Hair & Makeup -
My priority is to keep you – my lovely clients as safe as possible –
I have completed the Corona virus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course, which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd (the UK trade body for our industry). I have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you visit my home studio or I visit your home or venue -
If I/or any of my team feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, I / they will self-isolate immediately. This may mean that I have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again or in the case of being your wedding day I will source another team member so you can rest assured you will have a fully insured, professional hair/makeup artist/s for your special day.
For your trial appointment, wedding day booking or any special occasion booking -
If you or any of the people you live or anyone in your wedding party or anyone they live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise me as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO MY HOME STUDIO FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT, if I was due to your home/venue location please also inform me as soon as possible as I will not be able to visit you.
Visiting my home studio for pre wedding trials/special occasion bookings -
ALL clients are asked to wear a face covering to appointments (unless you are exempt), as we work in close contact with you - please ensure you are wearing your mask upon entry to my home studio - your face covering will need to be worn at all times apart from when I/we are directly applying your makeup, you will need to wear it whist I/we style your hair. If you're having both hair & makeup - your hairstyling will be done first so you can wear your mask, makeup will then be applied after hairstyling for which you can remove your face covering.
I have increased the frequency of cleaning in my home including making sure that my home studio, common areas & surfaces, toilets door handles, toilet, bathroom are cleaned using disinfectant products between each client as well as steam cleaning carpets & seating.
All makeup products, makeup/hair tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised for your safety between each & every client.
You will have access to soap and hot water/anti bacterial hand sanitiser to wash your hands with as soon as you enter my home. Disposable towels will be available to you to dry your hands.
Please don’t be surprised or upset as I/my team will be using personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment.
All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area between each client.
I understand the importance of hand hygiene and I will ensure that I wash my hands in accordance with NHS recommendations before the start of your booking & at frequent intervals throughout.
My studio will be well ventilated in accordance with government guidelines whilst providing close contact services - unfortunately I will have to open windows slightly even if the weather is chilly!
On your wedding day at your home or venue -
Please ensure there is a safe space for me/us to work from as I/we work within close contact on a one to one basis with each client. Time will be needed before & after each client so I/we can clean all hair/makeup equipment & products, seating areas, work surfaces etc.
A suitable space for makeup/hair set up will be required - a table & chair to lay out everything needed to provide your hair/makeup styling/application. Please ensure I/we are able to work in a safe environment for you & your wedding party as we provide a close contact service it is imperative for your safety & ours that we have a separate area away from your wedding party/guests & can provide a one to one service.
In order to avoid handling of cash, I would prefer if you could pay for your treatment in advance using bank transfers or Pay Pal. Receipts will be emailed to you.
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine / that of my team. I will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend as necessary keeping you informed at all times.
Thanks you for your understanding & I'm really looking forward to seeing you soon.
