Specialist PPE, safety and cleaning equipment launched for beauty salons
With most UK beauty salons, spas and clinics now preparing to reopen on July 4 if the government's phased plan allows, a suite of products and equipment has been created to help clean salons and protect staff and clients.
While there is no single official Government list of the specific protections steps that beauty and spa service businesses must take in order to perform treatments, several useful back to work guides have been released by industry associations that are in close contact with Government.
Many of these, along with Professional Beauty's salon guideline poster, suggest that additional equipment may be useful to protect both staff and clients from airborne germs.
Currently salons are free to use their own judgement on the measures necessary but many are choosing to purchase masks, screens and additional cleaning equipment.
