We are getting ready to welcome you all back and to re-open the Salon for your Hair and Beauty Treatments.  There will be some changes in place to ensure your safety.  Apologies for the long list -  but we want to make sure you are fully informed before you turn up for your appointments!

Skin testing.

New clients: You must have had a skin text 48 hours prior to your colour service, please book this online or phone to avoid disappointment. 

Existing clients: Has it been six months since your last colour? if so please book a skin test online or phone 01905 748877 to avoid disappointment as you skin test may have expired.

Please see our Skin testing guidelines tab below



Your Stylists and Therapists: 


1.    We have all undertaken additional training with Dermalogica and Barbacide. We will continue to offer our normal high standards of care while keeping you safe at all times.


2.    The team will be wearing the required PPE including gloves, masks and disposable aprons.  These will be disposed of at the end of every treatment. 


3.    Government guidelines for social distancing will be observed. This will usually be based on 2 metre separation.



The Salon


1.    Our opening hours will be extended to allow for social distancing and to meet demand.


2.    The layout of the Salon may look different with no waiting area, fewer chairs and fewer people on the shop floor.


3.    The Salon will be locked and a strict appointment only basis will be in operation. We will politely ask you NOT to turn up too early (or too late!) as you may have to wait outside the Salon until your designated appointment time.


4.    All contact surfaces within the Salon will be thoroughly cleaned in between clients. Hourly and daily cleaning will be maintained throughout the day.


5.    Equipment will be cleaned before and after each treatment. 


6.    Adequate ventilation will be provided in the Salon.


7.    Magazines and refreshments will not be offered; clients will be offered water with disposable cups, please feel free to bring in your own drinks and reading materials.



1.    We have had a complete review of our treatments; there may be some which we are unable to offer at this time. 


2.    All clients will be required to have their hair washed in the Salon – there will be no dry cuts.


3.    Sadly, we have had to increase our prices on most services to accommodate the longer appointment times, price increase from suppliers and general salon cost of PPE – please see our website for updated prices. 


4.    Consultations will be held via zoom for hair & beauty to avoid the length of time you spend in the salon.  For all colour appointments, we will call / zoom you the day before to discuss your requirements.


5.    Pre- screening consultation forms will be sent to you via email 48 hours prior to your appointment for your facial and massage treatments.

 6. You can book online via our app available to download on apple and android - Beauty by Tabitha
