At Boutique 8084, we are committed to supporting you every day in the challenges you face in your profession. At this time, one of the main challenges is to prepare as best as possible for the recovery of your activity and we know that this situation is a real source of concern for you. In order to reassure you and to guarantee your comfort and safety, we have gathered together for you the information we have at our disposal to give you a few clues and help you prepare yourself for the reopening of your hair salon.
The issues involved in reopening your hairdressing salon
As you know, the restart of your activity will require the implementation of a certain number of safety and hygiene measures. Several organizations, that bring together hairdressing professionals, are working with the government to ensure that the back-to-work of hair salons is safe for everyone, hairdressers and clients alike. The Allied Beauty Association (ABA) of Canada is one of the organizations behind these efforts. We advise you to stay tuned for regular updates on the ABA website here. In some regions, activity has resumed in compliance with health and safety standards.

Equipments for hairdressers
Depending on the region, the progress of the information differs, some hairdressing salons will have to be revamped and hairdressers will have to invest in new personal protective equipment. In this equipment: masks, gloves, face shields, capes but also disinfectant products such as barbicide to disinfect your work tools between each client. We encourage you as much as possible to opt for sustainable solutions such as our washable masks designed in Montreal!
In order to respect the rules of social distancing, your work space will also have to undergo some modifications. Space out the workstations as much as possible, rotate between customers, especially for the washbasin. You can also consider installing protective screens at the reception desk or between workstations if you lack space in your salon.

Your hairdressing salon reopening
Welcoming customers again will undoubtedly be the challenge! Your working hours will no longer be the same as they were before the health crisis we are going through. It is certain that you will not be able to welcome as many clients as before and that the health protocol will also require time and organisation in your working day. Finally, some of your clients will not be able or will not wish to travel even after the deconfinement, for those, you may consider setting up online consultations or, when possible, sending their hairdressing products directly to their homes.
