Social Distancing in the Hair and Beauty Industry

Some areas are beginning to lift the strict regulations for lockdown, however, questions on how to regulate social distancing  how to  Beauty shops, nail shops, and beauty spas can be a high risk for coronavirus, which has killed many people worldwide since

the start of this year.

to improve social distancing. They can create distancing by offering space between chairs and make sure their clients are seated and treated individually.

And because of the presence of Covid-19, beauty salons and shops raised the bar for cleanliness to an exceptional level. It is especially applicable to hairdressers, aestheticians, and nail technicians who do not have the luxury of distancing themselves

from their customers.

Beauty shops and salons should have a safe place environment for their staff and the customers. Important changes must be made.  This change will cause financial stress, retraining, and repurposing of beauty salons and beauty shops to not infect or spread

the virus to anyone.

There are a lot of beauty shops that have reopened and followed some protocols such as on the time of reopening it must ensure that no groups of people will assemble in the waiting area. All clients will be asked to wear a mask, or a mask will be provided

if needed and temperature testing should take place upon entry.

Stylists and staff must change their mask every four hours and wear plastic visors. Payments must be done over the phone or virtually and they must also leave the front door open to avoid touching.

As much as the business owners want to reassure the safety and that their experiences will be close to normal, clients also need to adjust their expectations.

Despite that, a lot of beauty shops and other businesses begin to reopen their shops, however workers are afraid and nervous about balancing their health and safety with earning a living.

Everyone in the industry is suffering especially in the financial aspect due to the pandemic. Regardless, many businesses including the beauty shop industry have reopened but they are unable to accommodate many clients like before. Due to their businesses

Although there are many challenges and changes to face after reopening, there are beauty shop owners that remain optimistic that their salon will be able to get back to growth throughout the remainder of the year and into 2021.
