We have been in regular contact throughout the lockdown with The Good Salon Guide, FSB,, Wella professional not only UK but Global, Shortcuts UK. and many respected leaders in our industry so rest assured your in safe hands!

To all our valued clients, your comfort and safety is our main priority. We are closely monitoring the circumstances and government recommendations regarding COVID-19.

Before you attend your visit to the salon!
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to give you an update on the changes we are making in the salon to ensure your safety is our main priority.

If you or a member of your family are unwell, have a temperature, recent cough, loss of taste or smell or have recently returned from overseas travel or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, please reschedule, even if you do not have any symptoms.

We are closely monitoring the government and industry advice, and have made some changes in how we operate under their best guidance.

We are taking extra care to ensure we are sanitising and cleaning between each client in the chairs
We have introduced sanitation-stations with hand sanitiser – please use these, as much and as often as you can.
We are still committed to your comfort while you are at The Cutting Rooms however you will notice we are no longer serving our refreshments/teas/coffees/drinks. You may bring your own with you if you wish to, we can serve you filtered child water in a plastic cup. This is for the safety of our staff to reduce germ transfer, and you, and we promise we are doing our best to recycle and dispose of these ethically.
You may also notice that we have removed magazines, this is to reduce germ transfer. Please feel free to bring in your own reading materials.
We ask that you refrain from using cash where possible.
We have made changes to space out our salon stations/chairs and installed screening in an effort to self-distance as much as possible.
Our team are following government recommendations, and will all be isolating if they show flu-like symptoms, so we ask for your patience and understanding if we need to reschedule your appointment.
If you are unwell, have recently returned from overseas travel or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, please reschedule, even if you do not have any symptoms. We will help to accommodate you at a time that suits.

As always, community works best when we band together to help each other. As such, we have a few ways we can offer to help, if you are sick, self-isolating, or quarantined:
