Its been widely reported in the media that people who’ve tested positive for coronavirus have a stronger sensitivity to hair colour than they did previously.
While millions of people have their hair coloured every year without any problems, a small number of people can have a severe allergic reaction to some of the ingredients in hair colour in the same way that some people are allergic to certain foods.
Salon manager Charlotte explains “Within the hair & beauty industry, there has been an increase in cases where clients who had tested positive for Covid-19 have had a strong sensitivity to colour that previously they were absolutely fine with.
“For this reason, we have taken the decision that all colour service clients require a further skin test when we reopen to check that they have not built up an unknown sensitivity”.
Skin testing is not new to us, we already are a colour responsible salon and follow industry guidelines for colour services.
Colour consultations can be booked in advance of your colour and take approximately 10 minutes and will be provided as part of any bookings for colour services. Clients with any questions should contact the salon on 01706217129 or email email@example.com.
