Maintaining simple health and beauty rituals—like visiting the hairdresser—has been difficult during COVID lockdowns. Now, as Victoria starts to join the rest of the country in easing lockdown restrictions, salons are placing a renewed focus on hygiene and safety initiatives to keep staff and customers safe.

Australian hairdressing franchise Just Cuts is staying a cut above by taking extra measures to not only maintain COVID-safe practices, but to educate staff and clientele about what to expect during a Just Cuts appointment.

In addition to the recommended measures of distancing, additional cleaning, sanitising each styling station, cape and tools before and after each client using hospital grade sanitiser, and constant use of hand sanitiser, Just Cuts have strongly enforced the following protocols throughout their salons:

  • no refreshments or magazines for clients
  • contactless payment methods
  • floor stickers so guests can easily observe social distancing
  • restricted number of people in each salon with recommended distances between styling stations
  • PPE masks for all stylists and clients

“Just Cuts’ focus is and has always been on the safety of our stylists and clients and we will continue to take all measures necessary to protect our community. We look forward to working with our clients and celebrating this easing of restrictions in Victoria with a banishing of COVID hair,” said Just Cuts CEO Amber Manning.

“Our salon owners and stylists are grateful for the ongoing support of our loyal clients and their many messages. We are grateful for the ongoing professionalism and enthusiasm of our team.”
