Keeping you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic

We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, here is what you need to know!

Most of this is based on the Washington State requirements for Service Providers in phase 2, and not up to us...

What you need to know when coming to the salon:
*You have to wear a mask over your nose and mouth, cloth, surgical, N95, your choice. We have some for you if you don't bring one. No mask, no service.
*You have to wear a cover up over your clothing. We have purchased our fancy Great Grape Capes for you to wear, these will be washed after each client and reused. No cape, no service.
*You have to wash your hands when you arrive.
*We have hand sanitizer by the front door of both salon spaces, you may use that, but it does not replace hand hygiene.
*We'll have extra gloves and eye protection if you'd like to add to your outfit, nothing more is required other than the mask and cape, but if you want safety goggles you can borrow a pair. They'll be clean and disinfected!
*You can't come in without being invited... you'll need to call from your car or tap on the door if you don't have a phone. We have NO waiting area, you'll need to hang out in your car or away from the door so others can come and go. Please don't bring anyone with you for your appointment, we can't let anyone hang out with you.
*The chances of us being able to take walk in clients is super slim, so if you don't have an appointment I'd call before you come to the salon.
*You'll need to complete and sign an intake form, answering basic questions about your health only as it relates to COVID-19. The forms will be kept for 30 days then destroyed. Your information will only be passed on to the county or state if they ask for it in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19, your name will never be shared other than that.
*We'd like it if you'd let us take your temperature using a hands-free thermometer.
*We'd like it if you could touch as little as possible in the salon, everything you touch needs to be disinfected, so look with your eyes not your hands!
*Please bring in as little with you as possible, the more stuff you set around, the more we need to clean and disinfect later. Don't forget to lock your car if you leave your stuff in there.
*No open drink cups please, we don't want anything floating in the air to settle in your coffee! We'll have bottled water if you need a drink. But, if you are getting a mani or acrylic you can't take your mask off to drink, so.... no coffee anyway!
*No cash or checks, just credit or debit cards please! Or gift cards, we know LOTS of you have those just waiting to be used!
*If you have any reason to think you might be sick with COVID-19 or any flu or cold for that matter, or if you have been around someone who has had it in the two weeks prior to your appointment we need to ask you to cancel. We are waiving our cancellation fee for the time being. We have GOT to all be super careful about this and we do NOT want to be the epicenter of an infection.

What you can expect from us:
*If we think we might be sick or have been around someone who is sick, we'll call to cancel your appointment. Again, super important we not pass anything around...
*We'll be carefully monitoring our own health and checking our temperatures. And we'll be keeping an eye on each other too, just to make sure we are all taken care of.
*We'll be wearing scrub tops that are changed and laundered after each service. Don't laugh at us, they are NOT exactly cute.
*We'll be wearing masks all of the time.
*We'll be wearing gloves most of the time, but NOT during your service. We'll wash our hands RIGHT before we sit down to work on you, and we won't touch anything but you and what we need to perform your service.
*We'll be wearing glasses or eye protection quite a bit... not ALL of the time, but a lot. (no laughing...)
*We'll be disinfecting our implements as we always have, because we already do it as we are required.
*We'll be cleaning and disinfecting EVERYTHING that we use during your service. Tables, chairs, bottles, boxes, bins, lights, e-files, carts, stools, etc. If it was used, we'll clean and disinfect it!
*We'll be cleaning and disinfecting common surfaces every couple of hours during the day.
*We'll be cleaning and disinfecting the thermometer, the pens, the iPad, again, if it gets touched, we'll clean it!


This may seem like overkill, but I'd rather us be known as the overly cautious salon, than known as the one that caused an outbreak...


Don't forget we will be adding a COVID-19 surcharge of $5 to each appointment to help cover the cost of the supplies we've needed to purchase to reopen. Thanks for your understanding on this, it is not something I do lightly, and hopefully won't continue long.


Uhmmmm.... I think that's it!


I want to assure all of you that we will do everything in our power to keep all of us as safe as possible, but there are no guarantees with this thing. We all have to do our part, and be aware of our own health risk. If you are in a high risk category, you need to decide if coming in for a mani or pedi is the best decision for you. If you think you might be sick, please call to cancel. If you are concerned, call and ask us questions. We are aware of our own risks and health situations and we'll do our part to protect you. If we think we might be sick, we'll call to cancel. It's not worth exposing anyone to anything on either of our parts. This relationship goes both ways, you protect us, we'll protect you. Make sense? Yea! We got this!
