Salon Re-Opening Update




Welcome back to Beaners Fun Cuts For Kids!
 

We are grateful for your patience during this time. During the salon closures, customers were dearly missed and we look forward to seeing you and your little ones!


ALBERTA OPENING DATES

On April 30th, the Government of Alberta announced the re-opening of hair salons as part of their stage 1 relaunch strategy. Re-opening dates will stagger by location as follows:
  • Edmonton and St. Albert will re-open May 14
  • Sherwood Park on May 15
  • Red Deer on May 19
  • Calgary salons will  re-open May 25th
Online appointment bookings can be done here and will be available on or close to the date of re-opening.

ONTARIO RE-OPENING

The Ontario government has not announced re-opening dates for hair salons at the time of this update.  We are also awaiting their re-opening safety guidelines. Please check back here for updates or subscribe to our email newsletter for updates.


OUR COMMITMENT TO HEALTH

The health and well-being of our customers and staff remains our top priority and we are making adjustments to ensure your experience remains fun for kids and easy for parents.

If you or your child feels any symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath, kindly reschedule your appointment to another date. If you have travelled outside of Canada within the last 14 days or come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay at home and reschedule for another date.

Since the announcement, we have been busy preparing the salons. Some of the measures we have taken include:
  • Cleaned and/or disinfected all surfaces and stations
  • Spacing stations 2M apart
  • Laundered and/or disinfected all capes, towels and linens
  • Removed non-essential items throughout our business
  • Initiated contactless methods of scheduling and payment
  • Acquired appropriate personal protective equipment to be used
Planning Your Visit

As an ongoing, convenient and safe manner to make an appointment, book using our app, by accessing our website or by calling the salon directly. As per the Government of Alberta guidelines set forth in the “Guidance For Hair Salons and Barbershops”, clients should avoid walk-in service.

Anticipate less appointment availability as extra time is required to maintain social distancing. When scheduling the appointment, consider booking the entire family (we do adults too!).

Our ball pits and play areas will remain temporarily closed. Please bring your own distraction device.

Personal Protective Equipment


Our staff will be wearing masks. Masks for clients are optional and we encourage you to BYOM (Bring Your Own Mask). Staff will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which may be new to your child. You may want to explain to your child why staff are wearing PPE in advance of the visit.  Where possible, children should be accompanied by one parent only.

Arrival

Please arrive for the appointment 5 minutes in advance. Upon arrival, please enter if social distancing of 2 metres is maintained. A barricade may be placed in the doorway if the waiting area is full. If so, please either wait outside or in your vehicle and call the salon to confirm your arrival. Staff will let you know when you can enter.

Upon entry, check in at reception. Staff will escort you to a hand sanitizing area and we will also have hand sanitizers or soap dispensers throughout the salons. You will be directed to the stylist’s station. Chairs may be assigned to kids with limited selection to ensure distancing. Hugs and hand shakes are on hold with your stylist, however smiles are always available!

Take A Photo!


Where some kids are very overdue for a haircut or need their “corona home haircut” fixed,  there’s no shame here, we get it! Show us your updated do’s by snapping before and after pictures and tagging us on Instagram using @beanersfuncuts for your chance to win a $25 gift card!

After the Haircut

Following the haircut, we would be pleased to help you select the right products for your family’s needs in our retail area.  Please ask us for assistance. Product refills on the Beaners line will be temporarily suspended. We are using contactless payment and avoiding cash payments at this time. This is an ideal time to take the “After” picture showcasing how the “corona” hair has been fixed.

In between customers, each station will be cleaned and sanitized. Increased cleaning practices in public spaces and common touched areas will also be conducted. Stylists will take 20 seconds to wash their hands in preparation for the next customer.

We are committed to the safety of you and your family and our staff. Helping us work through these guidelines is appreciated.

 
Thank you for your patience and support and see you soon (from 6 feet away)!
