Colour safety policy updated April 2021 Post Covid-19
The safety of all our guests is paramount to us and that is why we adhere to manufacturer guidelines on skin safety testing, which means carrying out a patch test 48 hrs prior to your appointment.
This element of your safety is just as important as our social-distancing measures and cleaning routines.
Although it is very rare, a reaction to hair colour can occur and, if severe, can be painful and distressing. At its most serious, an allergic reaction can result in hospitalisation. For the thousands of perfect skin tests, whenever that one skin test flags a reaction before an actual colour appointment was carried out, all of us are hugely relieved we found out the easy, stressless way.
What Do I Need To Know?
You must book a skin test if you have had any of the following:
- You have suffered from any illness that has recently put your immune system under strain (Coronavirus is an example of this). Any illness that puts your immune system under strain may cause your body to overreact to colour services.
- You have had your Covid-19 vaccination within 14 days leading up to your colour appointment.
- You have used a box colour between appointments, we will need to carry out a new skin test.
- You have not had a colour appointment or skin test within 6 months.
For anyone that requires a skin test (or if you are under any doubt or concern that a recent illness may include you), this must be done at least 48 hours prior to your appointment.
Whilst it can be carried out on a drop-in basis, we would now much prefer that you notify us in advance, so that we can be ready for you. The easiest way of doing this is by calling the salon and advising us when you would like to pop in.
