An update from Charlie Brown Hairdressing…
Owing to Government Covid lockdown restrictions we are closed from the 5th of November until the 2nd of December. If you have a November booking then one of our team will contact you to rearrange as soon as possible. We are taking bookings online for December during this lockdown for Cut & Finishes but not colours. We would encourage clients to book in, should the lockdown period be extended those that have booked will be placed on a priority list for the next available appointment.
We would like to share with you the steps & procedures in place to keep you & our teams safe. Safety measures & social distancing have had an impact on how we operate & our appointment availability & durations.
We thank you all for your encouragement & support in these times.
If you answer yes to any of these questions, however mild, you should stay at home & reschedule your appointment:
- Have you had the recent onset of a new continuous cough?
- Do you have a high temperature?
- Have you noticed a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell?
- Our appointment timings have increased & we are allowing for extra sanitisation. We have split our teams into A & B teams for now and are now open on Sundays. After your initial ‘lockdown’ visit, our rebook program & discounts will again be available.
- To minimise ‘No Shows’ & last minute cancellations we are taking a non- refundable deposits with large/long bookings, this will act as a credit against the cost of your final bill, you may of course reschedule your appointment up to 48hrs before, however it will be taken as a charge for later cancelations that cannot be filled, late arrivals or No Shows. If you have been advised a skin test is needed this must be performed 48hrs before the colour service.
- Our phone lines, internet bookings app & Facebook ‘Book Now’ have now re opened. We are pleased to welcome new guests, Please note colour services cannot be booked online however you can book a colour consultation/ skin test which is advisable.
