COVID-19 has reached more corners of the United States. All the businesses were affected. The salon industry is bracing for a potential downturn in business. As the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention continue to recommend social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, hair salons, tattoo parlours, nail shops, spas, and more beauty and wellness destinations have become the latest businesses to temporarily close across the country.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all salons providing beauty services are required to shut their doors indefinitely starting Saturday, March 21, at 8 pm. “These temporary closures are not going to be easy, but they are necessary to protect the public health,”
Meanwhile, many cities in California have implemented similar rules, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, both of which are under “Safer At Home” and “Shelter In Place” ordinances, respectively, that have forced closures on all non-essential businesses.
The owner is in a difficult situation than ever. They didn’t know what to do & never in that position before and what the next move was.
While many beauty pros are faced with uncertainty around the future, customers are stepping in to help. Purchasing gift cards for future use, pre-paying for services, buying products online from local salons or stylists and tipping your technician in advance of your next appointment all go a long way.
COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic. BUT if we stay at home, one for everyone & everyone for one. Small actions from the greater community could mean the difference between your favorite salon making it through this crisis or closing its doors for good.
We believe that this pandemic can be controlled. And the day that all beauty salons can be opened again will be soon.
