As we reopen, Special FX Salon & Day Spa wants to ensure that you feel safe and empowered when you come to visit our salon and that you know what to expect when it’s time for your appointment. We’ve taken extra precautions, updated the salon for social distancing protocol, and ensured you are comfortable in our salon while observing California’s guideline standards.
New salon format reconfiguration. You will notice when you come back to our salon that we’ve accommodated the social distancing guidelines by ensuring that our work areas are at least six feet apart. It’s important to us that our team has the space needed to work effectively while our guests feel comfortable and secure in their own space.
Added sanitization training for team members. All of our Special FX Salon & Day Spa team members have passed BARBACIDE® Training as well as COVID-19 Sanitation Training. BARBACIDE® is a common cleaning and sanitizing product found in the salon and spa industry. EPA-approved, it’s been an intricate part of our cleaning process as the first line of defense that effectively disinfects all of our salon surfaces. And because it’s been EPA-certified, we are confident that it’s safe for use on all our surfaces to protect our staff and guests from COVID-19 and other human coronavirus strains.
New safety compliances. So that we are following CA safety standards, and to be in compliance with the health and safety measures specified to us by the California State licensing cosmetology and barbering boards, we have closed the common areas including the waiting area. You will see our team wearing masks and gloves when it’s applicable and thoroughly cleaning their area, tools, and chairs in between each appointment so that there’s a clean workspace for each client. As our team members come into the building, their temperatures will also be taken.
Safe check-in. We have contactless check-in implemented for your convenience before you arrive at the salon for your appointment. About an hour before your appointment, you will get a text reminding you of your appointment, when you get to the salon, simply click a link to let us know you’re here! Our system will check you in from a distance so your stylist knows when you’ve arrived. Then, when your stylist is ready for you, you will be notified through the same system that you can enter the salon.
As you enter, we have hand sanitizer available for your convenience and don’t forget to be wearing your mask. We ask for patience during this time since these extra steps, while ensuring your safety, may slow down the process.
Appointment scheduling. We encourage you to Reserve an Appointment Online for your convenience and, at this time, we are taking all forms of payment, including cash.
Shopping made easy. While you’re waiting for your appointment, you can shop our online store for all your favorite professional haircare and skincare products that you need. Once you are ready to leave, your products will already be bagged and ready for you to take home!
We value you. We appreciate our guests who will be joining us again. We know your concerns and will be working diligently to make your time with us enjoyable and the overall check-in process as seamless as possible. We thank you in advance for the care you’ve taken to follow safety guidelines when entering the salon, and we take pride in knowing that our Special FX Salon team is doing everything in their power to make you feel safe and valued and that you leave our salon feeling confident and looking gorgeous.
