It goes without saying that keeping the salon clean, sanitised and disinfected is one of the most vital things you can do to help stop the virus being spread. We recently posted an article on this exact topic that outlines how to do this effectively – add it to your pre-opening reading list!
It’s nearly here. Clients will soon be flocking to your doors to correct the atrocities that 3 months at home have caused to their hair, nails and skin. However, it is vitally important that salons do their bit to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.

Whether you are just looking to attract new customers or have your sights set on fame and a ton of brand endorsement deals, creating a YouTube channel for your hair, nails or beauty business is a sensible place to start.
