COVID-19 POLICY

To all our valued clients, the health and well being of our staff and clients are our main priority.  Blow Dry Bar continue to comply with all health & safety practices as determined in each state. It is essential that you also comply with regulations as determined in your state. 

A note to our clients,

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to give you an update on the changes we are making in our salons to ensure your safety is our main priority.

Mandatory Vaccination (NSW/VIC)

In the interests of public health & that of our staff & clients, we fully support the mandatory double vaccination rule. This is not our choice, however it is our pathway to freedom. Whilst we respect freedom of choice,  we do respectfully request that you follow the guidelines in line with the public health order specifically for your state.

 

NSW **VERY IMPORTANT - please read**

Effective 11 October 2021, and in the interests of public health, it is essential that you carry evidence of receiving a double COVID vaccination (or evidence of any medical exemptions ). You will be required to QR scan code upon entry to the salon. 

Further, please read the following compliance statements:

1. You agree to follow strict hygiene practices while at your appointment including washing & sanitising your hands on arrival, & will comply with all staff instructions during service;

2. You will not bring anyone unrelated to your appointment to help limit the number of people on the premises;

3. You agree to let us know of any details given change, particularly with regards to developing any symptoms, or exposure to COVID-19;

4. You are double vaccinated as of 11th October 2021, are carrying proof &comply with all current NSW health requirements. 

For non-vaccinated patrons, we look forward to seeing you from 1st December 2021.  

QR Codes & Masks at check-in

MASK UP & CHECK IN!

As you are no doubt aware, we will require our clients to check-in using the QR code system on your smartphone. The system is quick and easy to use however in some states it is now required that all guests check-in on arrival. Masks are mandatory in most locations so please wear your mask on arrival,  or help yourself to the disposable ones provided. Sanitising stations are provided for you to sanitise your hands on arrival and during your appointment if needed.

We are closely monitoring the government and industry advice both nationally and state-based,  and have made some changes in how we operate under their best guidance.

  • We are taking extra care to ensure we are sanitising and cleaning between each client in the chairs

  • We have introduced sanitation-stations with hand sanitiser – please use these, as much and as often as you can

  • We are still committed to your comfort while at Blow Dry Bar, however, you will notice we have begun serving our refreshments/teas/coffees/drinks in disposable cups (not relevant to all salons). This is for the safety of our staff to reduce germ transfer, and we promise we are doing our best to recycle and dispose of these ethically.

  • You may also notice that we have removed magazines/iPads – again, this is to reduce germ transfer. Please feel free to bring in your own reading materials.

  • We ask that you refrain from using cash where possible.

  • We have made changes to space out our salon stations/chairs in an effort to self-distance as much as possible.

  • Our team are following government recommendations, and will all be isolating if they show flu-like symptoms, so we ask for your patience and understanding if we need to reschedule your appointment.

If you are unwell, have recently returned from overseas travel or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, please reschedule, even if you do not have any symptoms. We will help to accommodate you at a time that suits.

As always, the community works best when we band together to help each other. As such, we have a few ways we can offer to help, if you are sick, self-isolating, or quarantined:

  • If you need to reschedule an upcoming appointment due to a possible infection,  please get in touch and we will accommodate a change. The sooner we have this notice the easier it is for us to reschedule & offer your appointment to another client.

  • If you are running low on hair products and cannot visit the salon, we can arrange delivery or shipping so your hair can still look fab

  • Reach out to us if there is something we can do for you, and we will do our best in this trying time to help.

During this time, we will do everything in our power to keep our team and our clients safe.

Thank you for your cooperation, take care and be safe & remember to social distance so that you can keep YOU & us safe.
