Our stylists also made a commitment to stay home if they are showing signs and symptoms. While we know how hard it is to stay away from the salon and miss out on income, taking care of yourselves and cutting out the potential for passing on illness in the short term, will lead to a happier and healthier salon in the future.

Wishing you great health and great hair!
