DURING THE LATEST LOCKDOWN, THE GOLSON SALONS ARE NOW CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Once we are allowed to reopen, we will continue to follow all measures to keep you and the team as safe as possible. Anybody with an appointment booked during this time, or who have paid a deposit, you will be contacted as priority to reschedule your appointment as soon as we have been given a date.
We continue to keep the high covid safe measures in place across GOLSON Milton Keynes salons to look after you and help you to feel safe
Our priority is to protect you and our team members. We want you to feel relaxed during your visit with us. . Please speak to your stylist if you have any worries at any time before or during your appointment.
YOUR HAIR + YOUR SAFETY = OUR PRIORITY
What’s in place at GOLSON?
Restricted number of stylists and clients to ensure we are able to follow social distancing measures
Perspex screens at the salon reception desks and in-between the backwash where it isn’t possible to socially distance.
We will only be accepting card payments and Apple Pay and encourage you to book online and pay in advance where possible; we will be able to take card payments for any additional services / treatments or to enable you to purchase hair care and styling products on the day.
We ask you to arrive only if you have an appointment or are arriving for a skin test. Please wait outside of the salon and wait for a member of the team to greet you.
Please arrive by yourself unless you need to be accompanied for medical / care reasons or are accompanying a young child
Arrive on time. If you are late we may not be able to carry out your full service, as we have no waiting area and are unable to overlap appointments
We will ask you questions as advised within the government guidelines, prior to you entering the salon:
– have you developed a recent and continuous cough?
– do you have a temperature?
– Are you experiencing a change in your usual sense of taste or smell?
– Does anybody in your household have any of the symptoms?
We will ask you to reschedule your appointment if you answer yes to any of these questions.
Sanitise your hands before and after your appointment
Our usual lovely refreshment menu is on pause, so we have cold water available along with disposable cups, please do not bring your own food or drink.
Our consultations will be carried out via the mirror. This isn’t how we like to talk to you and discuss your hair, but for the time being this will help reduce face to face contact
Stylists and assistants will be wearing a disposable apron, a visor and a mask to help keep you safe
We will provide you with a disposable gown and towel, and due to latest government guidelines, you must arrive at the salon wearing a face covering
Each station and all hair styling tools will be sanitised between each client
A small Covid surcharge is applied to each appointment to help contribute towards additional costs following the government guidelines. We appreciate this has been a difficult time for everybody both during lock-down and we have kept the charge as small as possible.
We encourage you to rebook your next appointment prior to leaving the salon or book via our website or app whilst you’re in having your hair done. You will be asked to pay a deposit if you are visiting us for a colour service for the first time, or if you are a regular GOLSON client and booking in for a Kerasilk or large colour appointment. Deposits are transferable to a new date or refundable when 48 hours notice is given.
There will be no promotions / discounted services upon reopening.
Membership privileges remain and we have extended your membership by 15 weeks or number or weeks remaining, if they were due to expire during lockdown period. We will not be selling any future memberships at this time
Allergy tests for colour appointments remain in place and must take place 48 hours prior to your colour service. You don’t need to make an appointment, just turn up during salon opening hours. Please wait by the door and one of the team will come to you! Remember, if you don’t have an up to date allergy test, we will be unable to carry out your colour appointment.
We WILL have the same friendly atmosphere without the hug, kiss handshake or high-five, and we’ll have the same massage backwash chairs to help you relax and instead of the chitter chatter, feel free to sit back, relax and enjoy the music 🙂 or bring your smart phone / tablet and scan the digital magazine QR code to view a full range of magazines to browse during your visit.
We love the relationships we have with our lovely clients, so please do not be offended if our team are busy making your hair gorgeous instead of catching up with you, as we are unable to run late or overlap our clients.
We thank you so much for always supporting us, we appreciate you and cannot wait to see you again!
You can also follow us on facebook and instagram under @golsonsalon for regular updates.
We are operating a reduced telephone booking line, so please rebook your next appointment whilst at the salon, or book online, or via our free GOLSON app.
Keep checking back with us and keep an eye on our social media channels for updates!
See you all very soon
Luke and the team
