Dye salon blog- March
Welcome to the roaring 20’s! What a start to the year we have had.... I just thought I would do a little post to update everyone about what is happening at the salon currently and over the next few weeks (hopefully with minimal surprises!).
The Boring But Important Bit
With the pandemic taking hold over things we all usually do in our everyday lives its a worrying time and we are all needing to do more to ensure the safety of ourselves and everyone around us.
At Dye, on top of the usual cleaning regime each section used (as well as frequently touched areas) will be cleaned down after every client to help try and minimise any in salon spread. Should you have your own keep cup or water bottle, we are encouraging you to bring and use to again minimise risks. I want you to also know, as always, each towel used is used only once before they are put into wash and the gowns also.
I also ask if you’re feeling unwell please let me know and we can postpone your appointment. The usual cancellation fee will be waived. If you are running late to your appointment, let me know, the usual cut off time of 20minutes will be reduced to 15minutes (so I can make sure the extra clean can be done). If you have traveled overseas and back, had close contact with someone that has high chance of positivity or that is confirmed and find yourself at home in quarantine please don‘t come to have your hair done, that can wait!
NO CASH PAYMENTS. Not that many people choose to use cash but I will be keeping strictly cashless moving forward.
Salon hours will remain the same until we are all advised otherwise. Being the small space where you are frequently the only client at a time I am super confident that this will remain a safe space! Thank you for your support on these matters and all ongoing support. And as we are all being told, keep calm and wash your hands!!
Who has heard of ’Sustainable Salons’? No? They have been around since 2015 and they’re at the forefront of recycling all waste and by products of having your hair done. From taking all the cuttings of your hair that get swept up to create booms that are used to clean up oil spills to using the plastics that contain shampoos and peroxides to make glasses frames, they help to drastically reduce the impacts on the environment. You can find out more about them here https://sustainablesalons.org/about-us/
Dye will be rolling out their recycling regime in salon from mid March/early April, we are super excited to be able to be a part of the group of salons that have them in place. This means that every booking will attract an additional tiny $2 fee to the appointment charge to facilitate this move. Personally, I think Sustainable Salons is an amazing concept and would be great to see more businesses be more responsible about their waste as there is little to no reasonable options for companies to be able to recycle (no, unfortunately they’re not entitled to have the household recycle bins for ‘commercial waste’ and private companies charge crazy amounts!).
They also accept hair donations of hair over 20 cms to help make wigs! More info on this is available here https://sustainablesalons.org/ponytaildonations/
