In July 2020, we added a temporary ‘Safety Levy’ which is added to every persons visit to contribute towards the extra costs to the business as a result of Coronavirus.
The standard cost is £5 per visit. The safety levy is stated on every booking confirmation.
There is a reduced amount of £2 per visit for all children’s appointments, express mens wet cut services and beauty treatments under £20.
We are hoping to be able to remove this levy in Summer 2021 or when the government guidance changes.
The amount charged is a contribution towards the extra costs which are currently incurred by the business and include 20% VAT.
Below is an example of the extra costs incurred:
Extra time allowed for all services
Added team members including Front of House and more support staff in every salon, including for extra business opening hours.
Reduced capacity of clients in each salon
PPE including but not limited to:
Gloves (the price of which has increased multiple times in the past year)
Disposable hair towels
Disposable spa towels
Increased laundering and costs of gowns and other single use items
Additional cleaning materials
Single use manicure and pedicure packs
We have tried to ensure that your salon visits are as safe as possible and have been pleased by the positive comments about the procedures that we have in place.
