Covid 19 - Updates

Hello Techniks Guests!

 

We have taken the following certifications to ensure that we are compliant with the Vancouver Health Authority and updated our skills in salon and spa sanitization specific to Covid-19.

  • Beauty Safe Certification Level 1

  • Beauty Safe Certification Level 2

  • Barbicide Certification

  • Barbicide Covid-19 Certification

  • Pandemic Awareness by Worksite Safety

All Techniks team members will continue to maintain our high standard of cleanliness, as well as disinfection and sanitization daily, in-between guest appointments and regularly throughout the day.  This extra level of care will include:

  • Ensuring that our team does not attend the salon if they have any signs of illness, regardless if the symptoms are related to Covid-19 or not.  

  • The front waiting room will no longer have seating and there will be a Plexiglass barrier at the front desk.

  • Social distancing within the salon space will reduce the number of stations so that we can accommodate the 6ft. rule.

  • All tools, implements and surfaces will be cleaned and/or disinfected between every guest.

  • Capes will not be used between guests until they have been fully laundered including dried at a high heat.

  • Neck strips will be placed between the client’s skin and towel/cape to offer an extra level of protection.

The following is a list of protocols that we have set up for our clients:

  • You may call to book an appointment.  We will be anticipating a higher volume of calls and with limited staff it may take a bit longer to get back to you.  We appreciate your kindness and patience at this time.

  • We have extended our operating hours so we can provide as many service appointments as possible to our clients and still be compliant with social distancing.

  • We will do our best to stagger appointment times in order to maintain physical distancing.

  • Please arrive at Techniks within 5 minutes of your appointment start time.  Please note that if you are late for an appointment, you may need to reschedule if there is a chance your appointment will cross over into other appointment times.

  • All guests will be asked to wash their hands before beginning with their service.  You will also be asked if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or other illnesses.

  • Techniks is temporarily charging a fee to cover the extra costs of cleaning and maintaining the salon and spa.  This fee will be $5.00 and includes applicable taxes.

  • Social distancing decals will be on the floor of the salon to assist in meeting the 6ft. rule. 

  • Magazines, candy and drink service have been removed from the salon but you are more than welcome to bring your own reading material and beverages.

  • All clients will be required to provide a phone number and/or email for contact tracing should it be required.

  • Techniks would prefer contactless payment such as VISA, Mastercard and Debit.

  • Please leave extra bags and coats in your vehicle wherever possible.

  • As much as we have missed you, we are deferring handshakes and hugs to a later date 

 

Through these measures we feel confident that we can keep our team and our guests healthy and safe while preventing the spread of Covid-19.

 

Thank you, 

The Techniks Team
