SALON 13500 COVID-19 PROTOCOLS – Updated March 10, 2021

    • All clients must come in through the front door so we can check them in and take their temperature. All clients are required to wear a mask while they are in the salon. This requirement will remain in place after the statewide mask mandate is lifted on March 10th. All staff is also required to wear a mask in the salon while they are interfacing with clients.
    • The salon staff will continue to make every effort to maintain social distancing between clients in the salon.
    • We will limit the number of people in the waiting area to maintain social distancing of clients while they wait.
    • All clients will be asked to wash their hands as soon as they come into the salon. A hand washing station is set up in the coffee bar and it is equipped with a touch-less paper towel machine, hand soap and a touchless trash can. From there, they should proceed directly to the stylist station.
    • There will also be hand sanitizers at every station for use by clients while they are in the salon.
    • Clients will not be able to use the dressing room. Clean smocks will be given to them by their stylist. This means clients will need wear a top they can leave on with the smock worn over that while getting color or they may change in the bathroom.
    • We will continue to offer water, sodas, wine and beer to our clients.
    • Stylists will be sanitizing their stations, products and tools between every client. The salon will provide sanitization wipes for everyone. Sanitizing spray and wipes will be placed throughout the salon for this purpose.
    • Stylists will leave a vacant shampoo bowl between themselves and the next stylist if possible.  They will sanitize the shampoo bowl when they are finished with the bowl and place a clean towel over the next rest for the next stylist. This will let everyone know the bowl has been sanitized.
    • The salon has installed a guest-facing credit card payment system so that guests can process credit card payments themselves.  The front desk staff will sanitize the front desk area, retail area, door handles and all other surfaces we can multiple times during the day.
    • All stylists are responsible for letting their clients know they should not come to the salon if they have underlying health conditions that would make them more susceptible to getting the virus. This message is also part of the signage at the front door.
    • Everyone should be very careful about booking an appointment for a new client. The salon and all lessors should ask anyone NEW to the salon if they have travelled anywhere in the last month; if they have been exposed to anyone who has the virus and/or has tested positive for it; and most importantly, if they have any underlying health issues that would make them vulnerable to getting the virus. This part is extremely important!
    • No one working at the salon should come to work if they don’t feel well or have been in contact with someone testing positive for COVID-19. They will be required to get tested if they come in contact with someone testing positive for the virus or they believe they have symptoms.
    • Salon 13500 has signage though out the salon regarding COVID-19 precautions to be taken by everyone.  The guidelines are posted on our website. There is a link to these Covid Protocols in our email confirmation sent to clients booked through STX. All independent contractors are required to share this information with their clients as well.
    • Salon 13500 will abide by all guidelines issued by the CDC, the State of Texas and TDLR regarding COVID-19 and update our guidelines as the guidelines from these experts evolve.

Salon 13500 is very committed to the health and safety of our clients and staff and will do everything we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  We believe we can do that while also serving our clients. It is important that we follow these protocols and guidelines until the COVID-19 crises is over.
