All staff have completed and passed the Barbicide Covid-19 Certification and/or the Coronavirus(Covid-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. The certificates are available to view at reception.

Therapists will be assigned a treatment room during their shift.
Our staff will be provided with correct grade face masks/visors, gloves & aprons.
You will have access to soap, water and disposable hand towels. Hand sanitiser will be available at both entrance and exit of the salon. We will also have hand washing guides at each sink to ensure correct hand hygiene.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets, door handles etc are wiped clean with disinfectant products in between each client.
All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers instructions for your safety. Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally friendly, single use items and these will be disposed of safely after use to protect you from cross infection. Files and buffers will be thoroughly sanitised between each appointment with Isopropyl which is 90% alcohol and at the end of the therapist shift all tools will be placed in a UV cabinet for sanitisation. Each therapist will have two sets of tools to enable us to give correct timings for each set to be sanitised by using Barbicide (10mins) before being used on a client nails. All surface/cleaner disinfectant used will be tested to BS EN 14476
We can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms are a priority using a laundry cleanser along with detergent.
