Good Hygiene practice within Hair and Beauty Industry

Good Hygiene practices within hair and beauty industry.
This would include
-social distance where possible for clients. Keeping a distance between them of 2 metres would mean that salons would need chairs to be this far apart or even every second chair left empty.
- no waiting area for clients- they must arrive on time and wait outside until appropriate for them to enter premises.
- Disposable Paper Cups if need to supply drinks.
- Disposable Gloves to be worn by all staff and changed between every client.
- Disposable Gowns to be worn by all clients.
- No magazines provided
- Longer appointment times - cleaning time between clients added to appointments to make sure done thoroughly
- Disposable aprons for all staff.
- Ask every client to wash hands on arrival
- Disposable paper towels in bathrooms.
- keeping fresh air circulating at all times if possible - maybe alternative air purifiers ( if this is applicable?)

Why the contribution is important

As someone who has run a Hair and beauty salon in Glasgow with ten staff members for the last 23 years as well as working with cancer patients for 10 years at the Beatson- i am aware of the impact hair and beauty has on mental health but also how much close contact it involves. Therefore, i am aware that the government needs to take extreme caution in opening this industry back up again during this crisis but i hope it can be done correctly and safely.

    Most of this should be done as standard practice.
    Sadly, likely to be one of last to resume trading due to touching people, and being in personal space.
