Following the Government announcement on 11th May, we can confirm that we shall not be open until at least Saturday 4th July, subject to the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines.
We have put in place strict working practices designed protect staff and clients from the spread of Coronavirus. We have also bought PPE, just in case it is required or requested.
When we finally do open, booking will be essential. Please come alone unless you need an essential carer with you.
Please wait outside until asked to come in and please bear in mind that initially we shall not be accepting cash. Further direction will be given on arrival.
Finally, in line with the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines, we shall be performing haircuts and headshaves only, not any services which require us to touch the facial area or spend time directly in front of you (e.g. beard trims, shaves etc.
The cost of PPE and loss of business due to Coronavirus may necessitate us putting our prices up sooner than we would have liked. This is still under review.
We can assure you that we we do re-open, we shall have extra capacity for the first week or two. Online bookings will be made available within an hour or so of any opening being announced. See link on home page.
Thank you for your cooperation at this difficult time.
We have switched booking system provider from Timely to Fresha.
It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Timely, our booking system provider for the last 5 years. They have provided us with an excellent service.
Fresha, our new provider allows you to store your card securely on their app, so it gets charged only after your service. Like a hotel booking, it will also charge you if you don't turn up or charge a late cancellation fee (50% if you cancel with less than one hour's notice). Otherwise, you pay nothing until you check out.
So, gone are the upfront payments. So too the problems many people had with PayPal crashing.
We have got rid of the booking page on this website. Instead there is now a simple link on the Home page, which will take you to our Fresha booking page. Please feel free to try it out now.
3. Defence Discount Service and Blue Light Card.
If you hold a current Defence Discount Service card or Blue Light Card, present it at the till for 20% off your visit. This offer is valid Tuesday to Thursday.
That's all for now. Stay safe, follow government advice and we hope to see you all again soon.
