Update August 1, 2020

We have been re-opened now for exactly 3 months! 

 

Conditions and restrictions put in place by our government for salons & spas have not changed in the past 12 weeks.  We were hopeful for changes as Manitoba entered Phase 4, but many of those proposed changes in the draft have been deferred until a future date. 

So how does this affect us at Cutting Loose Hair Design?

 

We must still limit the occupancy of clients in the salon to 50% our normal capacity.  This means not all of our staff team can be working at the same time, and we are limited to one client at a time.  We must continue to implement measures to ensure everyone maintains a 2metre distance between each other in all of the salon space.  If workstations cannot be a safe 2 metres apart, they may be separated by a non -permeable physical barrier.   All of our cutting stations comply with that rule.  The only area that we are considering changing is adding these barriers between our sink area, so we are able to use 4 sinks instead of just the 2 that we have been doing all along.

 

 

Please review our safety protocols as there’s a couple changes & new additions.

 

  • The waiting room is still closed & we require you to wait outside or in your vehicle. Our door will remain locked.  All clients must come alone to their appointment.

 

  • Masks are still required by all clients & stylists at all times inside the salon.

 

  • We are unable to serve any beverages or snacks until further notice.  Clients & Staff team are not allowed to bring in any food or drink either. (Can’t drink with a mask on)

 

  • We are now allowing small purses & 1 personal item in the salon, such as a book, iPad, e-reader.  No backpacks, large bags, laptops etc. Please be mindful of the size of bag you are bringing in.

 

  • Clients & staff team entering the salon must answer the Health Questionnaire required by the Provincial Government & get their temperature taken before proceeding into the salon.

 

  • We continue to remind you all, that if you are feeling ill or have flown or travelled outside of the Provincial guidelines, we ask you to please stay home & reschedule your hair appointment to a later date. 
     
  • Both client, and stylists must wash their hands upon entering the salon.

 

  • We are currently not accepting cash or cheques.  Debit, Mastercard or Visa only.

 

  • Inside the salon, clients are asked to stay seated & are not allowed to wander in the space. We ask that you be aware of your physical distance at all times in the salon.

 

  • We are adding non permeable physical barriers between the sink areas in order to allow usage of all 4 sinks.

 

  • We continue to practice cleaning & proper disinfecting of all tools, equipment, & stations with a hospital grade instant contact disinfectant.  All towels, capes, smocks are used only once and then properly cleaned.
  • All of our dirty laundry bins remained covered with lids, & all clean laundry is boxed and closed to open air.

 

  • As we get closer to flu & respiratory season, we have protocols in place for our staff team and for our clients should someone fall ill with a regular cold or flu. We are taking your and our health concerns very seriously.

 

  • Once it gets cooler weather & jackets are being worn, we have individual garment bags ready for each client to keep your clothing safely separated.  We plan to have disposable booties to cover your footwear in the winter season.

 

  • We have officially cancelled our annual Open House Client Appreciation Night as we knew it.  Other options are being discussed currently.

 

  • We are currently taking appointments through to the New Year based on our existing 50% limited schedules.  Please be sure to book ahead to guarantee a spot because we cannot accommodate everyone the way we normally do in December.

 

Thank you again, from all of us at Cutting Loose Hair Design for your understanding & cooperation during these challenging times.  We are so happy to be allowed to be open for business and we are making every effort to accommodate each of you in a safe environment.  We appreciate that you choose us for your hair care needs & we value your business & friendship.  Please stay healthy and well.

WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS

 

 

IN ORDER FOR US TO BE OPEN SAFELY WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED THE FOLLOWING RULES & PROTOCOLS.

 

Dear Guest,

 

We understand everyone’s health concerns so we have made necessary changes in preparing our business for you.  The safety of our team and our clients is essential to us. Please respect our limitations and don’t ask us to break any rules.

 

  • The Front Door of the salon will remain locked at all times.

 

  • We ask that you wait in your car until our front desk team texts or waves at you to enter. We must do this to ensure our proper social distancing & government regulated number of people in the salon at one time.

 

 

  • We ask that you arrive alone for this same reason.  We ask that no one accompany you to your appointment.  If you need assistance they may help & then will be asked to wait in the car. Do not bring children along for your appointment.  If the child is the client, we ask that you wait in the car during their appointment time.

 

  • Appointment times are all staggered to allow for proper social distancing & time for proper disinfecting so please be on time.  We will not be able to accommodate late arrivals. We will do our best to stay on time for you as well but please be aware our schedules are extremely limited and booked to the maximum capacity.  The extra cleaning & disinfecting we are doing before and after each client takes more time.

 

  • The waiting area will not be available to you for any long periods of time.
  • We ask that you leave all personal items in your vehicle.  No jackets, food, beverage, large bags, purses, books, magazines, or Ipads, are allowed in the salon.  Only your phones, keys and wallets will be allowed.

 

  • Prior to entry to the salon, we ask that you bring your own mask.  NO ONE IS ALLOWED IN THE SALON WITHOUT A MASK. (Be aware that certain hair services might leave your mask damp, or stained.  We are not liable for any stains or damage that occurs during that appointment time)

 

 

  • Upon entry to the salon you will be asked to answer the government mandatory self-assessment health tool questionnaire by our Front Desk Team.

 

  • Your temperature will be taken. You will be asked to leave if your temperature is above 99*F or 37*C

 

  • We ask that if you are feeling any of the following symptoms to please not enter and reschedule your appointment: fever, cough, sore throat, dizziness, light headed or hallucinations.

 

 

  • All clients will be required to wash their hands upon entering the salon, regardless if they have just used hand sanitizer in the car.  This is NON NEGOTIABLE.

 

  • Your stylist will greet you at the front area after she and you have washed your hands.  She will be masked and take you to the disinfected sink area or station. 
  • During your appointment time we ask that you not move from the area your stylist places you.  Due to social distancing rules we must maintain that you stay in a designated area.  You are not allowed to touch any of the retail products or shelves. Bathrooms are available but please let us know you are leaving your area to use them.

 

  • Unfortunately, we have had to remove all magazines, coffee & food service, & chocolate treats.

 

 

  •  You are allowed to be on your silenced phone during this time, but no other electronics are allowed in the salon.

 

  • We can still chat but we ask that talking moistly is limited.

 

 

  • Hugs and handshakes are discouraged at this time.

 

  • Please talk to your stylist during your appointment time indicating any retail items you want to purchase.  These need to be gathered, disinfected and ready to go prior to the time of payment by the Front Desk only.  Stylists and clients are not allowed to touch the retail shelves.

 

 

  • Your stylist will walk you to the front desk after your service and the Front Desk team will take over at that point.

 

  • WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY CASH OR CHEQUE PAYMENTS AT THIS TIME.

 

  • We accept Debit, MasterCard or Visa only.
  • All transactions will be done through touch-less payment on our disinfected point of sale machine.  We will enter the total and set a fresh piece of press n seal saran over the machine for you to insert your card and enter your numbers.  Upon completion, we ask that you rip your receipt off and take the press n seal saran strip with you.  We have a covered garbage can outside the salon for you to dispose of it after leaving.

 

  • We are only able to make one future appointment for each client at this time.  We do not know how long these strict restrictions will be in place and if our allowed work schedules will change in the future.

 

Our salon has always prided itself in our cleanliness & disinfecting practices.  A lot of these protocols are not new to us, but we want you to be aware of what we have always taken care of and some of the new additions.  Here’s what we are doing to ensure your health & safety in our salon:

 

 

  • The entire team has been certified in GHS/WHMIS training.

 

  • Our Health & Safety Policies are current & all our SDS sheets are updated & available.

 

  • We always have and will continue to use EPA registered disinfectant, bactericidal, virucidal & fungicidal sprays.

 

 

  • The salon is equipped with a fresh air intake & exhaust system to remove smells & keep good air quality.
  • Our team’s health will be individually assessed daily & they will be sent home if they are ill.

 

  • Their temperatures will be taken daily.

 

 

  • They will be masked during our entire workday.

 

  • All touchable surfaces will be disinfected before and after each client.

Feel free to ask any of us at any time about what we are doing to ensure your safety.

 

 

COVID 19 UPDATE  April 30, 2020

 

Yesterday's announcement from the provincial government allows the reopening of non essential services on May 4.  Because there are a lot of new restrictions in place going forward, we have made some changes in the salon and we now have to adjust all our work schedules to allow for the limited amount of people we can have in a salon this size at one time.  We are working as a team to finalize all these details now.  Please be patient with us as we try to sort through what this will all look like going forward.  If you were bumped out of an appointment by our temorary closure, you are on a list where WE WILL CALL YOU TO RESCHEDULE ASAP.  We are currently not booking any new appointments until we know we are safely ready to do business under the new protocols and guidlines provided by the government.  You can expect a phone call from us (if you already had an appointment that was bumped) on Thursday, or Friday this week.  Please DO NOT call the salon as we are inundated with phone calls and messages right now, and we are trying to fit everyone back in.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.  We are trying to ensure the safety of all of our clients and team going forward.  Please follow our posts on social media and here for further updates.

 

Thank you,

Tammie

REGROWTH TOUCH UP KITS

 

 

As Team Cutting Loose continues to #flattenthecurve by staying at home for now, we recognize the needs of some of our clients.

 

Under these special circumstances, we are introducing a one time only REGROWTH TOUCH UP KIT.

 

What comes in your kit:

 

⭐️personally formulated color formula (not like a box dye which is one color only)

⭐️developer

⭐️gloves

⭐️bowl & brush (returnable)

⭐️professional shampoo & conditioner

⭐️specific, clear instructions with video & disclaimer.

 

Kit will contain enough formula to touch up on the new growth area at the roots along the hairline & your part line.

Price will be $45 for each REGROWTH TOUCH UP KIT. 

How can you order:

⭐️Contact your stylist via text, Facebook message, or Instagram DM. If you don’t have their text # please text Tammie 204-997-1340 & she will contact your stylist for you.

⭐️Leave your first & last name & indicate you need a kit.

 

Not everyone will be a candidate for this kit. Your stylist will determine if your current color will be suitable for this. ( There will be no lightener, or blonding available) Only regrowth that is close to your existing color.

Not all stylists will be offering this kit.

When & where is pick up:  Pickup times will be either at the salon (no touch, it’s all set up) or your stylist might be able to hand deliver. We will let you know when you place your order.

 

⭐️Time is sensitive. You will need to apply the formula within 30 mins of receiving it for it to correctly work.

 

In no way is this replacing our face to face color appointments we want & will need to have in the future with our valued clients but it provides a quick fix and “pick me up” for you our clients. @cuttingloosehairdesign #cuttingloosehairdesign #flattenthecurve #stayathome #doingourpart

COVID 19 UPDATE March 30, 2020

The provincial government announced today that all non- critical services must close April 1-14 in Manitoba to limit the spread of COVID 19  This includes all hair salons including those operating out of their homes.  These measures are yet another step to limit the transmission of this virus and to flatten the curve.  Cutting Loose Hair Design will remain closed as we originally planned until April 14th and a re-open date will be considered as we navigate forward. We are allowed to continue with our contactless pick up of hair product & kits for home use on designated dates & times with only one staff member at hand & social distancing practices in place.  

 

 

COVID 19 UPDATE March 24, 2020

 

The provincial government placed our province in a State of Emergency this past Friday which means Cutting Loose Hair Design is temporarily closed until further notice.

 

We are still unsure of the details & the actual amount of days we need to stay closed as the developments change daily. For our clients that have appointments booked in April, WE WILL BE CALLING YOU.  Please don’t call the salon as we are trying to manage our call volume level & reach everyone quickly. At this time we are unable to reschedule your appointments as we don’t have an exact return date. Don’t worry, you will be rescheduled in the order you all originally had.

 

Please follow our social media & website for updates. If you need hair products, please text my cell 204-997-1340 or email imahrctr@shaw.ca & we will make arrangements for pick up or delivery.

 

Thank you to everyone who supports small business. This is a very hard decision to make as if affects the livelihood of all my team. I want to thank Team Cutting Loose for their faith, endurance & support. You worked your butts off this past week & accepted this closure with grace & dignity, even through the tears. Thank you & stay tuned.

 

During this time the salon phone & email will only be checked periodically.  To reach us going forward please:

COVID 19 UPDATE March 16, 2020
Here’s our most current update & I’m sure there will be many more as this week progresses. As a small business owner, I try to look at all decisions I make from the viewpoint of those that will be affected......my team, their families, my clients, & finally me. I recognize that my decision to keep Cutting Loose Hair Design open until we are mandated to close might not be popular with everyone reading this.
 
Everyone on our team was given the personal option to choose whether they wanted to work or not. Everyone but Davolyn ( who has some personal health restrictions) will be working their regular days in the salon. You see, if we don’t have clients in our chair, we don’t get paid. Period! All of my team needs to work & get a pay check from me (if they are an employee or get paid by the clients if they are a chair renter). Collecting EI as a hairstylist is not that easy, just ask a hairstylist who has tried to collect.
 
So with a lot of thought and energy spent this weekend on what is the best thing for us to do.......we are open for business until the powers in charge say we can’t work. We respectfully ask if you need to reschedule, please let us know and we’ll be happy to do so. If you’ve been out of the country, your haircut can wait 14 days can’t it?
 
We have spent all day today, cleaning and disinfecting the whole salon like we’ve never done before. We will continue our current COVID 19 Sanitation Policy to keep our guests and the team all healthy.
Thank you for your continued support and everybody please wash your hands.

COVID 19 UPDATE March 15, 2020

 

Let’s stop and talk about this.

 

Cleanliness, disinfection & sanitation has always been a daily routine at Cutting Loose. As per our Cutting Loose Hair Design Health & Safety Policy implemented in 2018, we use commercial grade cleaners, disinfectants & sanitizers & we have plenty on hand.
 
We wash our hands before & after every client & will continue this regime as we navigate through this COVID19 outbreak.
 
We disinfect all working & commonly touched surfaces ( sinks, hoses, chairs, counters, food counters) before and after every client.
All of our tools are immediately cleaned with a viracide after each use and this practice will continue in our salon.
 
Going forward we will now be disinfecting door handles, client seating, coffee stations, credit card machines, toilet handles, light switches, after every use.
 
All Cutting & color capes will only be used once and then laundered.
 
Hand sanitizer is available amongst the stations in the salon.
 
We try to provide a safe & healthy workspace for you our guest & for Team Cutting Loose. Cleanliness has always been of utmost importance and I think that you can see that when you visit our salon. We will do our best to manage our time and the extra cleaning we have now added between clients.
 
Team Cutting Loose is trying hard to remain positive as we navigate through the financial uncertainty that this has created amongst us all. . We understand the media focus is heavy on this topic but we welcome any other happy topics to discuss during your appointment time.
 
Now go wash your hands!
