Relax, unwind and be pampered at the Pure Sense Holistic and Beauty Studio in Sutton Coldfield.
Pure Sense is a home based salon run by Vickie Ballinger. Vickie has over 20 year's experience in the beauty industry.
All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, some more than others.
I have missed being able to offer you the treatments that I know you love, and I am looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.
My priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon I have implemented a number of changes which I would like to make you aware of. During the time the salon has been shut, I have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. I have since made a number of changes in the way that I operate that you will notice when you next visit.
If I or any of my household feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, we will self-isolate immediately and my salon will not operate. This may mean that I have to cancel your appointment at short notice. I appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again once I am ok to open the salon.
If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19
Please advise me as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.
Visiting the Salon
For your safety and to maintain social distancing, I ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving.
I have increased gaps in-between clients to avoid this happening.
I have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets, door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client.
All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety.
Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.
You will have access to soap and hot water to wash your hands with as soon as you enter the salon and I will also have hand sanitiser available for you to use.
I will require you to wear a face mask when you visit the salon and during your treatment, this can be a face covering of your choice either a mask or scarf. If preferred I can provide you with a disposable mask for a small charge of £1, which will be added onto your bill.
Please don’t be surprised or upset if I use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves / face masks / aprons where appropriate.
I can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms is a priority and I can assure you that all salon laundry is washed at 60 degrees C.
All disposable items are bagged and safely removed from the treatment area between each client.
I have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and I have decided that the following treatments cannot be provided until further notice Hopi Ear Candles, Indian Head Massage, Facial waxing, Eye treatments, Facials
During your treatment
I understand the importance of hand hygiene and I will ensure that I wash my hands in accordance with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.
I will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns during your treatment please let me know and I will do what I can to help you.
After the treatment
In order to avoid handling of cash, I would ask if you could pay for your treatment by card or preferably using a bank transfer.( I can send you my bank details via a text )
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and mine. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.
Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to welcoming you back.
