We’re all extremely disappointed that salons are still closed after the covid-19 pandemic in the UK. If you’re in the industry you don’t need telling on how safe salons really are even before the pandemic.
Many Aesthtics clinics and salons have even been noted to be cleaner than hospitals, so when we contacted and heard about Professional Beauty’s #SalonsAreSafe campaign we definitely had to get involved and support them.
Below you’ll find the information from Professional Beauty you need to get involved.
We want to show everyone that the beauty profession is safe and ready to reopen alongside our colleagues in the hair industry.
To do this, we want to make a united call on Friday, July 3, that “#SalonsAreSafe”. With this campaign, we aim to call on the Government to give a definitive date when salons can reopen in England, Scotland and Wales.
But in order for this to happen, and for people to notice, we need your help.
Please show us how your salon or place of work will be safe on reopening via photos, videos, TikToks – however you want to do it. These photos/videos can be walkthroughs of your salon showcasing the changes you’ve made, PPE, or simply your own message – the more visual or creative you can be, the better.
Throughout the day on July 3 we want you to post these photos and videos and use the “#SalonsAreSafe” hashtag. If you’re not able to use your salon, we’ll be making our “#SalonsAreSafe” graphic available and would ask you to share that.
Where possible, we’d also recommend tagging your local MP, the Prime Minister, or the Business Secretary, to help get the message direct to the Government.
Any contribution you can give on the day will be vital in promoting our message. Ask your clients and followers to share the #SalonsAreSafe message on the day, as a show of faith in how you’ll look after them.
Professional Beauty will be supporting the campaign across our social channels, along with re-sharing your posts throughout the day and making as big a noise as possible.
We understand that some may still feel hesitant about a return to work. However, since the Government’s announcement on June 23, we have seen an overwhelming response from the industry who want to go back to work and believe they could do so in a safe manner.
