IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER!

A friend of mine recently asked me what were some of the highlights of owning Lori Friend Hair Studio for 25 plus years and I thought about it for a few moments and while there are so many highlights on so many different levels, the most dominant highlight that kept overshadowing all the others were the fun relationships I have with my clients. I am so lucky because I get to go to work every day and visit with my friends all day long! I enjoy the friendships that have developed over the years with my longer standing clients and it’s always fun to meet new clients and to start new friendships. In a world that has become so very technical and device driven, for me, nothing compares to seeing my clients walk through the door and then communicate with them, person to person, so when we laugh I can see and hear the laughter as compared to “LOL”. Spending real time with my clients/friends every day I go to work and enjoying their company, it doesn’t get any better!

PLEASE READ WHAT I HAVE DONE TO MAKE MY STUDIO AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE FOR YOU AS I REOPEN FOR BUSINESS:

Hi, this is Lori Friend. As you know, I have a unique situation at my Studio. I am the owner of the building and the business. This allows me complete control of my environment. And as you are already aware of, I am the only person ever in my Studio other than my client.

While I have been closed, I have had the entire Studio sanitized by a professional cleaning service. I had a plexiglass shield installed at the reception desk. I have purchased hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and disposable gloves for myself and my clients to wear when they come in. I have always sanitized my shears and equipment with Barbicide and alcohol and will continue that protocol. I will use clean covers on the shampoo chairs and the styling chairs before each client. Your clothing and skin will never touch any chairs as they will be covered and only used for you. Everyone will have a clean cape that would be washed after each use.

I will wear a face mask during your appointment. Please wear your own face mask. I also have purchased a non-contact infrared thermometer and I will be taking the temperatures of each client upon their arrival (recommended by industry standards).

I have installed remote electronic door locks on my front doors. I will keep the doors locked and only let the people in that have appointments to keep up the social distancing and also this will absolutely eliminate any unnecessary foot traffic. When you arrive for your appointment, stay in your car and text me to let me know you are here. When I receive your text, I will come up and open the door for you and at that time you can come in.

Due to scheduling there may be times where I will have one other client in the Studio. Because of this, I have converted my office into a separate room where I can provide chemical services to a client and keep the door shut while I may provide another service to another client in the front part of the Studio. This way each client will always be in separate rooms. Most of the time there will be only one client in the Studio and never more than two and if that happens, they will always be in separate rooms. If any of my clients do not feel comfortable with one other client in a separate room, please let me know and I will make sure that does not happen during your appointment.

I feel with all I have mentioned above, that I could operate my business safely under these conditions. I have talked with several health care professionals and they have agreed with me that I would be practicing the safest and strictest of guidelines that are recommended and required. I truly feel that my Studio will be one of the safest businesses in Libertyville, or anywhere for that matter, not only for me but most importantly, for you.

Thank you,
Lori
