So Friday morning the salon is booming, Kirsty and I are in good spirits, having a laugh & looking after our clients as we always do. I come out of treatment around 12.30pm, checking my phone, I automatically know something’s gone wrong from all the messages and missed calls on my phone. I manage to make my way through social media, try to piece together the unbelievable news of what Boris has done to us!! You see the next day and for the next 2 weeks after that Kirsty and I were absolutely packed with clients, here he is telling us with only a few hours notice before we close that we are going to have to cancel 80% of our clients?!!
To say we were gutted is an understatement, did we have a cry?! Yes I’ll be honest we did, we were stunned & shocked, we feel our industry has been kicked to the gutter, no one really cares about us.
I understand we need local lockdowns etc to look after everyone but the four hours notice is just unacceptable for our business or any other beauty business!
We are full of PPE visors, aprons, gloves, masks etc so we see absolutely zero reasons why we can’t work on the face!
The whole salon is cleaned, disinfected to an inch of its life! We are loosing money already by having to book out an extra 15mins between each client to sanitise and now we can’t do our clients again!!!
So to Boris please sort this rubbish out, if pubs can stay open with zero PPE, we should be allowed to trade with all ours! We aren’t asking for any money, all we want is the opportunity to work again!
And to anyone reading this, please think about all the beauty salons that you know, think of all the times the therapist stayed back for you after hours, or fitted you in when she had no gaps, or let you have that special offer even tho you booked the wrong day, or gave you a gift voucher for your local raffle, they now need a favour from you…….. they need your support, we need your support, please go, book a treatment that you maybe wouldn’t of had before, or if the business isn’t open yet see if they are selling gift vouchers or maybe buy some retail products!
They say after the storm always comes a rainbow, I do believe that, but I think this time we just need a bit of help in clearing the clouds away……
So the treatments we can offer at the moment are..
Anti-Stress Massage & Hot Stones Aromatherapy Massage
Shellac, Gelish & Rockstar Glitter, Fingers & Toes
Luxury Manicure & Luxury Pedicures
Callus Peel of Feet
Seborrheic Keratosis removed
Sebaceous Cysts reduced
Warts and Milia treatments
And if you aren’t a client of ours please visit your local beauty salon, you have no idea how grateful they will be.
See you all soon
