GOVERNMENT UPDATE BEAUTY TREATMENTS TO THE FACE HAVE TO WAIT

1 August 2020

LATEST GOVERNMENT UPDATE WHAT BEAUTY TREATMENTS CAN AND CANNOT BE DONE - AND NEW MASK UPDATE FURTHER DOWN THIS PAGE

Close contact beauty services UPDATE

Can salons continue offering other beauty services?

Yes, salons can continue to offer other services which are not around the face, provided they are done in a COVID-19 Secure way in line with guidance.

 

What beauty treatments are still not allowed?


Services in the highest risk zone - the area around the face - which require staff and customers to be face-to-face and in very close proximity, are not permitted at this time. Examples include, but are not limited to, facial hair removal services, facial treatments, make-up applications and eyebrow treatments.

The highest risk of transmission is through aerosols and droplets when people are in prolonged close, face-to-face contact within 2 metres. Considering the balance of risks, we are postponing the resumption of these highest risk services.

Next review 15th August at the earliest.

Here’s the link if you need it:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/31-july-announcement?utm_source=4e1db4d8-d660-49c5-9897-5bd3dddb086a&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate&fbclid=IwAR1m162niA67bnBXBxZWNG7sI0RvV-SwPUEhx_E-Ga4wSCT1ZwLs172X_Wo#close-contact-beauty-services-leisure-and-sport

SO ALL MASSAGE AND SOME BEAUTY TREATMENTS ARE OK NOW LIKE NAILS, PEDICURES ETC, EXCEPT BEAUTY TREATMENTS TO THE FACE, EYES, BROWS AND FACIALS - SO NO TREATMENTS TO THE FACE YET SADLY DUE TO RISE IN INFECTIONS WHICH THEY NEED TO GET UNDER CONTROL.

HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL IMPROVE IN A FEW WEEKS

SO ALL TREATMENTS FOR THE FACE FOR NEXT TWO WEEKS WILL HAVE TO BE POSTPONED AND YOU WILL NEED TO TRANSFER CLIENTS TO A LATER DATE OR PUT PAYMENT ON HOLD/CREDIT UNTIL YOU GET THE GREEN LIGHT FROM THE GOVERNMENT THEY CAN GO AHEAD AGAIN


Contraindications

17 March 2017

Contraindications - From 2017 to present day

When you sign up for a course with us, by ticking you agree to our terms and conditions you agree to letting us know about any health issues you may have.

Important - Our tutors put your safety and comfort first at all times and as with any treatments there are contra-indications to consider which MAY affect you attending / your involvement/participation on the course. This also applies for all the other students on the course - the person or paying friend you will be pairing up with to practice. If you have any concerns your tutor is happy to cover these before the course.


Please confirm if you are under treatment from your GP and other practitioners for any of the following:

Pregnancy - Are you within the first three months? Cancer, HIV and AIDS, Epilepsy, HBP or heart conditions, Infectious skin disorders like chicken pox, Contagious illness, Diabetes (if skin is very thin bruising may occur), Paralysis or loss of sensation

Recent surgery on neck or face (if attending Natural Lift Facial Massage/ Indian Head Massage any other facial course)
 You may need a letter from your GP stating that it is safe/appropriate for you to give and receive a massage treatment on a one-day course. Care should also be taken if you are suffering from the following during the day of the course.  Again this may affect your participation on the course:


Local Psoriasis or Eczema - open sores or infections to the skin or ears, cold sores, high temperature or fever, drunk or under the influence of other drugs, local pain such as toothache, sunburnt, hypersensitive or broken skin, acute inflammation or swelling, severe acne, procedures such as Botox in the previous three weeks, Conjunctivitis.

COVID-19 illnesses and related cancellations by students

If a student is ill on arrival the tutor has the right to not allow that person into the class, if you do not turn up on the day or cancel outside of the 14 days cancellation time period required and your illness is COVID-19 you are asked to show us evidence of this (proof of the COVID-19 POSITIVE test result) to be able considered for another training date. This is because if someone is ill for any other reason then legally we are not obliged to re-book them and if you cancel without giving enough notice and wish to attend again, students are required to book and pay again in full.

If your cancellation is cancer related, we take each case on an individual basis to review and often can fully refund or transfer you to a later date.

Students cancelling last minute or on the day will be asked for evidence that  they tested positive for COVID-19 and will be asked to produce evidence of this with a copy of their test result. Once this has been checked and approved by us, then the student is allowed to come back free of charge ‘once’ as a good will gesture, a last minute cancellation place will be offered (or if a course isn’t booking they get offered a place 24 hours beforehand) this free place will be offered as a good will gesture but students are not  entitled to a refund of any money paid.

You will be given a health waiver to sign on the day of your course which will ask you to state that - You are in good physical condition and fully able to participate in the course and have not been advised to not participate by a qualified medical professional and that you certify that there are no health-related reasons or problems which preclude your participation at the training course. If for any reason you refuse to sign this on the day you will not be allowed to attend and train with us you will waive the right to a refund of your course for all monies paid including the deposit.


Therapist rules for masks for you and your clients

1 August 2020

Update re face masks for your customers

UPDATE

Face masks must be worn when in-doors, they can be taken off when receiving a treatment - just read this on the latest government update on their site

It says:

7. Face coverings
Where will people need to wear face coverings?
We are now recommending that face coverings are worn in additional indoor settings and this will be enforceable in law.

Currently you are required to wear face coverings in shops, supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, indoor transport hubs and public transport.

For members of the public, from 8 August this will be expanded to include:

nail, beauty, hair salons and barbers - other than where necessary to remove for treatments

funeral directors
premises providing professional, legal or financial services
cinemas
theatres
bingo halls
concert halls
museums, galleries, aquariums, indoor zoos or visitor farms, or other indoor tourist, heritage or cultural sites
public areas in hotels and hostels
places of worship
libraries and public reading rooms
community centres
social clubs
tattoo and piercing parlours
indoor entertainment venues (amusement arcades, funfairs, adventure activities such as laser quest, go-karting, escape rooms, heritage sites)
storage and distribution facilities
veterinary services
auction houses

We recommend face coverings are worn in these settings now, but this will not be mandatory until 8 August.

THIS IS THE LATEST GOVERNMENT UPDATE THATS ALL BEEN POSTED ON THEIR WEB SITE 31st JULY x
