The lockdown related to the coronavirus changed everything, not the least of which was the way we pamper ourselves. When the country locked down in March, salons were off-limits, and we were forced to manage our tresses at home. Now that much of the country has opened up, at least to some extent, we can get back to managing our beauty in a salon. And while it just feels good to pamper yourself with a cut, blowout, or color, there are still some important safety tips to consider.
The entire business of salons has changed astronomically in response to the coronavirus. According to Justin Lessler, Ph.D., an associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, “They’re being careful and controlling. I do think many salons I know have been really at the top of their game in terms of infection control." You can have faith that your salon is working in your best interest to keep you safe. The bottom line is that they want to be at work, so they will do whatever it takes to stay working. The CDC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have issued some guidelines for your salon to follow.
In addition to the CDC guidelines, salons are also disallowing walk-ins, and scheduling appointments online. Additionally, they are not double-dipping like they used to, working on someone else’s hair while coloring a client, but only working on one client at a time. Many of these CDC guidelines are making it more difficult for the salon workers and owners, but are keeping the clients safer.
There are several things you can do as a consumer to ensure that your salon is following the rules and that you will be safe. First of all, Susan Wootton, an associate professor of pediatrics at Houston's UTHealth, recommends "Rather than staying there for four hours for a cut, a highlight, and a blow-dry, you could not do the blow-dry…or skip the highlights. Get in and get out.”
Let’s face it, everyone has a different level of comfort when it comes to the pandemic. Some people don’t want to wear a mask at all, and some want to hide in a bunker until the pandemic passes by.
