Outdoor Salon Services
On Monday, July 13th, 2020, we temporarily closed as ordered by the State Department of Public Health. The following Monday, July 20th, 2020, the Governor announced salons could open by working outside. GS HAIR is regulated by the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology and their website said outdoor services were expressly forbidden. At least they were on July 19th, 2020. July 19th, 2020 – Press Release State Board
The order was later ‘clarified’ by The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology the following day, Monday, July 20th, 2020, by saying salons could operate outdoors, but with limitations. Confused? We were too. July 20, 2020 Press Release – State Board.
The 5-page Memorandum issued the following day, July 20, 2020 was published by Kimberly Kirchmeyer, Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs and available via the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. The Why We Are Staying Closed
The Department of Consumer Affairs Memorandum included specific instructions on how outdoor services may be performed by salon professionals, should they opt to use them. We are trying to take care of our clients by keeping our business open and have studied the Memorandum very carefully.
After careful consideration, we have decided to stay closed.
- Chemical services cannot be performed outdoors. This includes hair color, bleaching and straightening.
- Shampooing cannot be performed outdoors.
- Services that require the customer to enter the establishment cannot be performed outdoors.
- We considered our upstairs deck, but it can only be accessed from inside the salon and is not wheelchair accessible.
- It’s July in Sacramento.
We value every one of our clients. We take your health and safety seriously, and we look forward to a speedy re-opening. Call anytime.
With love and respect,
