The pandemic has turned our world upside down and affected each of us in different ways. As you have seen, small businesses are one of the hardest hit groups.
We will be honest: there were days we did not think BSIDE could see the other side of this pandemic. Thanks to your support and encouragement and the determination of all our team members to overcome the toughest few months our society has ever seen in recent history, we are here.
Things will look a bit different and the usual routines might have changed. We do ask for your patience, understanding, and kindness as we bring the “normal” back into our every day.
Sanitation & Disinfecting
We thoroughly disinfect all surfaces and seating with disinfectants showing evidence of effectiveness against COVID-19 as approved and listed by Health Canada before we begin your service. This will be done for every single service.
Our team will sanitize and sterilize all tools above and beyond government regulations. We will safely dispose of items that cannot be disinfected.
Personal Protective Equipment
Our team of technicians will be wearing PPE including gloves, masks and face shields when performing services (from now until further notice.)
Our technicians will wash and sanitize their hands before and after every single appointment.
Pre-booked appointments only
From now until further notice, we are accepting pre-booked appointments only. No walk-ins allowed.
2 metres apart
At all times, all persons without a mask or personal protective equipment (PPE) at the salon are to maintain a 2-metre (6 feet) distance from one another.
We have installed plexiglass dividers at the front desk and between pedicure stations.
Manicure stations have a spacious gap (an empty seat) between guests to ensure physical distancing.
The number of people in the salon will be limited to enforce physical distancing. This means only the person listed and confirmed for the appointment will be allowed entry. No visitors or third parties allowed, please. We understand you might have a unique situation. If this is the case, please consult with us prior to your appointment and we will be happy to discuss a solution with you.
A temperature check is required for all team members at the start of every shift. We require all staff to stay at home and self-isolate for at least 14 days if they are symptomatic.
Full Body Appointments
We ask that our clients please book all services in one visit rather than individual appointments throughout the week.
Reschedule your appointment if you are feeling unwell or you have been in contact with a person who has a presumptive or confirmed case of COVID-19 or displayed symptoms.
Maintain physical distancing in the salon.
Contactless payments are encouraged.
Please wear a mask when you’re in the salon (don’t worry if you forget yours – we’ll have extra for you.)
Please wait outside if you are early for your appointment.
Sanitize your hands upon entry and before you begin your service.
To minimize risk of exposure, please do not bring kids, friends, pets, or family to your appointment even if you live in the same household. If you have a special circumstance, please reach out to us prior to your appointment and we will discuss a solution.
Food & Beverages
No outside food or beverages allowed. We strongly recommend you leave your bags at home or your car. If you must bring them, please reach out to us prior to your appointment and we will discuss a solution.
