Remember these 5 safety pointers to reduce COVID-19 risk while getting your beauty fix.
Yes, Eid-Ul-Adha is just days away which means people are heading towards their favourite salons. Since the lockdown has eased up in almost all the emirates except Abu Dhabi, the ladies of the house are ready to go have their mandatory salon visit. It’s also the well-deserved ‘me time’ factor that should be making you book an appointment ASAP right!! But see lockdown has eased but Covid-19 has not and it’s also understandable we might feel a little wonky going to the salons right now. But a few precautions will make the whole salon trip worth going to.
Stay safe while getting your beauty fix.
Wear Your Mask And Make Sure The Salon Employee Is Too:
By now wearing a mask is akin to like brushing your teeth in the morning or drinking 8 glasses of water every day, obligatory and keeps health in check. Since you are in close proximity with the salon attendant for a longer period of time, it is extremely important to wear a mask. and if anyone isn’t wearing one at the salon you’re visiting, run. Workers must wear masks and if possible, their gears at all times.
Salon Appointment Should Be Made:
This Eid, let’s make sure to take an appointment instead of just walk-in. The only people allowed inside the salons should be those getting their services done. Walk-ins should not be catered. A salon appointment shouts convenience in so many ways. One, you won’t have to wait for your turn, two you can make sure that the salon is complying with the COVID maximum capacity limit.
Opt For Treatments And Procedures That Will Take Minimum Time:
This Eid-ul-Adha, pick your treatments and procedures that are on your priority list and time-efficient. See every activity is a potential COVID risk even if you are wearing a mask. And right when you think about risks, it’s all or nothing situation. So, maybe instead of taking a full cut and colour, choose for a basic trim and expose yourself to less risk in the process.
One thing you can do to further reduce the risk of exposure is to choose procedures that require less face-to-face contact. Or you can do to keep the appointments short right now is to wash your hair at home and come to the salon with wet hair ready for a cut.
Carry Your Towel, Hand Sanitizer, And Disinfectant:
By now a complete personal COVID kit has become an unavoidable norm and it shouldn’t be missed while going for your salon visit. An extra towel just to be on the safe side, a sanitizer in your bag, an extra mask to layer while you getting your treatment done and a pocket-size disinfectant to clean up space where ever you are sitting. But there are little things as well, like door handles, lift buttons, cards, money, etc. so make sure a surface disinfectant is always nearby.
Make Sure To Visit A Salon That’s Checks All Precautionary Measures:
See as a responsible citizen, also because salon services are so personal, one must go to a salon that’s equipped with the necessary measures that ensure complete safety from COVID. Well, the salon’s commitment aids in safeguarding their customers as well.
- The salon attendants should be equipped with masks and protective gear.
- Making sure that the salon isn’t crowded
- Upon entering, fever is checked
- Customers with flu and fever are not allowed inside the salons.
- Leave the moment the services are done.
Yes, it is important to look good and feeling like ourselves, but honestly, it means taking on some risk. and if you decide to go for it, make sure you’re taking all the precautions you can
