Covid-19 Beauty Salon update

The Government has said that "restrictions will remain on the highest risk close contact services, such as treatments on the face including eyebrow threading or make-up application... until at least 15th August."

The statement says that "Services in the highest risk zone - the area around the face - which require staff and customers to be face-to-face and in very close proximity, are not permitted at this time. Examples include, but are not limited to, facial hair removal services, facial treatments, make-up applications and eyebrow treatments.

The highest risk of transmission is through aerosols and droplets when people are in prolonged close, face-to-face contact within 2 metres. Considering the balance of risks, we are postponing the resumption of these highest risk services."

Covid-19 update (issued 10th July) - Elle J Beauty Salon

Some of Elle J's Beauty Salon treatments will be available from next Monday (13th July) in line with the following statement issued by the Government:

"Updated COVID-19 secure guidance sets out the measures that those providing close contact services should follow to protect staff and customers. Only services that do not involve work in the highest risk zone – directly in front of the face – should be made available to clients. This means that treatments such as face waxing, eyelash treatments, make-up application and facial treatments, should not be provided until government advice changes, due to the much greater risk of transmission.

Where 2 metre social distancing cannot be maintained, for example when providing a treatment, the person providing the service should wear further protection in addition to any that they may usually wear. This should be a clear visor that covers the face, or the use of a screen or other barrier that protects the practitioner and the customer from respiratory droplets caused by sneezing, coughing or speaking.

The government has worked with a range of stakeholders in the beauty industry to develop the measures close contact services will need to consider to become COVID-19 secure, including:

  • using screens or barriers to separate clients from each other, and to separate practitioners from clients, such as in nail salons
  • operating an appointment-only booking system to minimise the number of people on the premises at any one time
  • keeping the activity time involved to a minimum
  • increasing the frequency of hand washing and surface cleaning, as well as regularly cleaning equipment or using disposable equipment where possible
  • avoiding skin to skin contact and wearing gloves where it is not crucial to the service, such as in nail bars and tanning salons
  • maintaining sufficient spacing between customer chairs
  • not allowing food or drink, other than water, to be consumed in the salon by customers
  • making sure a limited and fixed number of workers work together, if they have to be in close proximity to do their jobs.

Businesses will need to keep records of staff and customers and share these with NHS Test and Trace where requested, to help identify people who may have been exposed to the virus.

Businesses will only be able to open from these dates once they have completed a risk assessment and are confident they are managing the risks. They must have taken the necessary steps to become COVID-19 secure in line with the current Health and Safety legislation."

Laser hair removal that really works

Elle J now offers the very latest in laser hair removal.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an innovative, reliable and safe method of removing unwanted hair for both men & women.

It stands out as the most effective and least painful method among other hair removal techniques. When compared to laser treatments, the IPL hair removal system is gentler on the skin and more versatile in treating a broader range of skin tones and hair colours with better results.

IPL treatment is based on a state-of-the-art technology that delivers rapid pulses of high intensity light to the area that is being treated. The light energy is converted into heat, which destroys the hair follicle at the root (shaft), inhibiting future growth.

Prices start from £25 per session and if you book six sessions you'll get one more absolutely free!

A full consultation and patch test will be done prior to treatment.

The treatment is available as an Elle J gift voucher.

For more information pop into the salon or call now on 023 9258 2417 for a chat.
