State Requirements for Salons
We have always taken great pride in our sanitation practices. We will continue to practice exceptional sanitation practices to keep all of us safe and in addition we will apply the following state mandated requirements:
State requirements come at an added expense and for this reason we have applied an environmental/sanitation fee of $5 per visit and suspended all discounts going forward. This includes any special pricing, friends & family discounts, free offers and rescheduling discounts. We understand many have enjoyed these benefits and regrettably it is not sustainable to continue these benefits at this time. Visit our Service Menu page to check pricing or ask us to confirm our regular pricing.
While we are doing everything we can to keep you safe. We ask you to follow the state requirements below to ensure a smooth and safe visit for all clients and the Artistex team:
With the growing concerns for our health and safety being taken into consideration all over the world, and now locally, we would like to inform all of our clients of our current sanitation practices, additional precautionary methods we are implementing.
The cleanliness of our store is always a top priority for us that we take very seriously! Now more than ever it is important that we all do our best to participate ensuring the health of our community, and to help any virus from spreading. This will also prevent overwhelming our health care providers and health care facilities. In addition to our regular daily cleaning procedures, increased sanitization measures are being added as a precautionary method.
The following is currently practiced daily and much has always been part of our regular cleaning routine for over 20 years;
Sanitation of Spa Tools (nail/skin)and equipment;
Pedicure Bowls are lined with a plastic wrap and disposed of after each individual use. In addition to the use of the sanitation liner, bowls are wiped and sanitized after each use. To reduce any contamination, our pedicure bowls are jet-less and easily removable for sanitation after each use.
Waxing services; waxing applicator sticks individually wrapped or stored in closed containers, are dipped only once into wax pot to prevent contamination and sterilized use of wax.
Salon Tools; Hair Brushes, combs and clips are cleaned, disinfected, sterilized and wrapped or placed in a sealed sterile bag for singular use. Items are stored within a clean drawer for next use.
Laundry is done daily on site to limit possibility of contamination from outside laundry sources. Towels, robes, wraps and spa slippers are washed after each individual use.
Glasses/Mugs; We are not using dishware at this time. Normally the we use a dishwasher to clean and sanitize all of our dishware daily. Hand washing of dishware is prohibited.
Common Surfaces and door handles have always been wiped down regularly. We have taken extra precaution in regards to the cleaning of common surfaces thru the day with a minimum of twice a day. The surfaces include; counters, chairs, door handles, cabinet knobs, product pumps, faucets, any other commonly used surfaces.
Hand sanitizer is readily available for clients and employee use. In addition, soap has always been and is provided at all washing sinks. Employees are required to always wash hands in between services.
Gloves; gloves are provided for a multitude of services through out the salon and spa. Gloves are used for coloring services, hair washing services of all kinds, keratin services, nail services, waxing services and skin care services.
Kids Room; Is currently closed until the virus is eliminated. Surfaces are wiped down regularly with a disinfectant. Toys are wiped down or sprayed with Lysol disinfectant. We have always cleaned this room daily but during the virus season we will clean after each child use. We ask that you keep sick children home. With schools being closed, we have limited the number of children using the room together, to siblings only and highly encourage the booking of the room in advance at no charge when bringing in children during your services. Prior to each new family using the room we will need time to sanitize the room. We understand this is a popular area for children when visiting with us and appreciate your understanding during this inconvenience to properly prepare the room.
