surfaces with a powerful viricidal/ bacterial disinfectant during the day and
after we close.

as much notice as possible so we can manage our time and resource effectively.
Appointments will be well spaced out to allow
extra hygiene measures between clients and to avoid crossover in waiting areas.

basis only. We are committed to keeping our clients informed of any
developments around us but in the meantime we will continue to post and share
