We value everyone’s health and will be upholding our usual high standard of sanitation in addition to adding a few new protocols to keep you safe.

Your artists will be in touch with you directly. In the meantime please review the following policies we are putting in place:
-Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19, who has arrived from outside of Canada, or who has been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 will not be permitted in the shop and must re-schedule.
- Please contact your artist personally if you need to reschedule.
- Deposits are still non-refundable but will be honoured for COVID-19 related cancelations or re-booking.
- For the time being the shop will be appointment only and will not be taking walk ins.

To ensure your safety and ours we ask that you please follow these rules:
- Upon entry you must sanitize/wash your hands.
- Wear a mask at all times while in the shop. Please bring your own. If you do not have a mask we can provide one for a small fee. Supplies are limited.
- Please come alone to your appointment.
- Please arrive as close as possible to your exact scheduled appointment time and contact your artist upon arrival as the door will be locked.
- No outside food or drink will be permitted so please eat before coming to your appointment. You may bring a water bottle but please keep outside items to a minimum.
- While in the shop please practice social distancing where possible.

Please be patient, we are all trying to figure out the best course of action and are putting the health and safety of our clients and the community first and foremost during this time.

We are more than happy to hear your feedback and input on these new protocols and hope that these new measures are only temporary.

Please reach out to your artist directly if you have any questions
Please note they may not respond immediately due to high volumes
