Monday July 19th and keeping safe in the salons

Monday July 19th – it’s all change again, and this time it’s the BIG ONE!

You will no doubt be aware that the Covid-19 rules are being relaxed on Monday July 19th. The Government has given everyone in England permission to go back to ‘normal’ with freedom to mix freely. They have however recently changed their advice to encourage everyone to carry on wearing their masks indoors in crowded spaces and on public transport.

Everyone at Forresters will continue to wear masks in the salons as a matter of course and we respectfully request that you wear yours whilst you’re with us.

Rest assured, our salon teams are here to provide you with fabulous hairdressing in a relaxed, safe and comfortable environment, so with that in mind, please take a moment to read through the information below.

Your Health & The Forresters Teams

July 19th is the day that the previous government advice falls away. However, we respectfully ask that if you have any cold or any illness that is making you feel unwell or might be infectious, or you have been in contact with anyone with Covid19, or if you’ve noticed a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell that you don’t visit any of the Forresters salons.

Forresters Best Practice Hygiene Protocols for July 19th and beyond

Having your hair done should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, so we’ll still be taking as much care as we can to keep everyone safe during this new phase in the pandemic.

Our staff will be wearing masks at all times.

To reassure you further, all of our eight salon teams will be taking lateral flow tests twice a week.

  • Hand gel will be available at all times.
  • We will provide a freshly laundered gown for you to wear during your time with us.
  • Between individual client sessions, equipment, chairs, mirrors and surfaces will be cleaned using Barbicide® antiseptic spray or EnozoPRO .
  • We will be using Barbicide® tanks for hair combs, brushes and clips.

When it comes to salon safety and hygiene, we’ve gone one step further to keep us all safer and will be using EnozoPRO Sanitisers in all of the salons. EnozoPRO is a revolutionary aqueous ozone mist system that cleans, sanitises and kills up to 99.9% of pathogens.
