Policies & Procedures

Our Beloved Clients

Changes to Salon etiquette and new hygiene procedures have been introduced due to the changes we have experienced over the past couple of years.

We understand that now, more than ever, as the community has transitioned to increased work from home arrangements, and as social distancing is needed, we at é SALON are committed to doing whatever is needed to provide the excellence you have come to expect from us.

Our number 1 priority is the health and safety of our team, our clients and our collective families.

Hygiene is the upmost importance to us, and we ask you to help us by:

  • Following all current NSW Government health regulations and mandates around the use of masks and hygiene.
  • Using hand sanitiser upon arrival, you will find this at reception and at every station.
  • If you have come into recent contact with anyone with Covid 19, or experiencing any symptoms, we kindly ask you to reschedule your appointment and follow government policy on this.
  • If you are felling unwell, showing any flu like symptoms, or even a minor cold, we ask you to kindly reschedule your appointment.
  • We cannot have any guests accompanying you to your appointment, this includes children. I know it is challenging in these times, however it is to ensure we are adhering to government policy of social distancing.
  • As we are not serving magazines and many of our clients are using their smart devices whilst visiting, we ask you to bring headphones to minimise any disturbance to other clients.
  • For the comfort of all our clients we ask that you refrain from using any mobile devices in the basin area.

When you’re here, you should know:

  • We will greet you with a loving smile, whilst respecting one another’s personal space refraining from handshakes and hugs
  • We will continue to sterilise our tools and stations after every use
  • We wash our hands before and after each client
  • We will no longer be offering magazines
  • We are still serving Tea, Coffee and Water
  • We are checking in with staff daily to ensure they are healthy and well, and have not been in contact with anyone affected by Covid-19
  • Should you be showing showing any flu like symptoms, or even a minor cold symptoms, we will ask you to kindly reschedule your appointment.

Please understand if we need to reschedule your appointments as we are asking team members with any symptoms of flu or colds to stay home.

We cannot wait to see you in the salon and serve you in the same excellence you have come to expect from the é SALON team.
