we’re in this together: COVID-19 shop preventive measures
During this global pandemic crisis, being together and supportive of each other is more important than ever. Being a friend you + your hair, your safety is our priority. We put up different preventive measures and in-store precautions to make sure our shops are hygienic and virus-free so you can enjoy your styling experience with peace of mind.
- All staff are required to wear masks: Our frontline hair consultants are required to maintain good personal hygiene. Wearing a mask during work is a must. They also have to check their body temperature everyday, staff with fever and respiratory symptoms are refrain from work.
- Checking body temperature: We help to check customers’ body temperature before entering the shop. People with fever or respiratory symptoms are advised to seek medical help or stay at home for rest.
- Good Ventilation: By cleaning the air-conditioning systems, filters and ductings regularly, we ensure our shops are supplied with fresh and clean air.
- Free sanitising hand gel: We provide 70-80% alcohol-based handrub so you can clean your hands whenever necessary!
- Frequent shop cleaning: To keep the environment clean, furniture and floor are thoroughly cleansed with 1 in 99 diluted household bleach every day. While high-touch surfaces like countertops, styling tables and seats etc. are wiped with disinfectant wipes regularly throughout the day.
- Disinfecting tools before and after styling: Hair tools, especially commonly touched areas like stylers’ plates and curlers’ barrels are disinfected every time before and after styling with alcohol.
COVID-19 Hair Tips:
Viruses are less likely to survive under high temperature, styling your hair with hot tools at 100 degrees Celsius+ could keep your hair less prone to becoming the hiding place for viruses and bacterias. However, it cannot completely replace washing your hair. After visiting public places, you are advised to wash your shampoo + condition your strands at home.
As you’ll be washing your hair more diligently than ever, it’s vital to choose shampoos with superb hydrating and nourishing properties, we recommend Day By Day Clarifying Shampoo and Day By Day Weightless Conditioner from amika noir collection. Infused with Keravis protein complex and argan oil, they gently cleanses your scalp and hair without stripping it.
