There are a number of small steps you can take to keep yourself and your clients safe and help prevent the spread of viruses:



1. Practice good hand hygiene


Wash your hands for 20 seconds before and after each client. As well as before and after using the bathroom, preparing food, and if your hands come into contact with others.

According to a 2015 study in the American Journal of Infection Control, people touch their faces more than 20 times an hour on average. About 44%t of the time, it involves contact with the eyes, nose, or mouth - the pathway to our to the throat and lungs. This is exactly where we don’t want contaminated droplets.



3. Sneeze/Cough into a tissue then bin it!

It’s common sense, but if you sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue to contain any germs and then bin it.  This will help prevent germs spreading to others in close proximity.





  4. Protect your hands

  Wearing disposable gloves will protect your hands from any potential virus transfer. It is still important to wash          your hands before and after wearing gloves.




5. Disinfect tools daily 

Again, it’s good practice to be doing this daily regardless of the current situation, but paying careful attention and making sure all tools are carefully cleaned is advisable.





6. Disinfect key touchpoints in the salon 

This includes door handles, light/power switches, worktops, cash registers, sinks/taps, and waiting area seating 




7. Set aside time to disinfect large equipment between grooms 

It’s unlikely that your larger equipment will come into contact with anyone from outside your salon, but being safe and disinfecting larger equipment like tables, baths, and blasters will give you extra peace of mind.



8. Protect your staff and clients

Provide gloves, tissues and hand santizer and encourage everyone entering your salon to use them regularly.

Accepting online payments will eliminate the need to handle cash which may have been handled previously by those who have contracted the virus. It will also reduce the need to be in close contact with your clients.
