Salon in Doncaster says they’re excited to welcome back their clients in a week’s time
It has been months since anyone has been able to get a professional hair cut due to lockdown restrictions - a Doncaster salon is thrilled to be able to open its doors once more.
The Elite Collective Salon in Sprotbrough is getting ready to welcome back their clients from Monday, April 12, 2021.
Emma Louise Moore, manager at the salon and nail technician, said: “The last year has been a bit of a yo yo for us.
“Opening and closing multiple times has been difficult.
“Some of our clients lost their jobs and couldn’t afford to get treatments and some were so scared of the virus they wouldn’t come.”
Now that the doom and gloom of the past 12 months is almost behind Emma and the rest of the staff at Elite Collective they have started to get excited about the reopening next week.
“We’re all just so happy to be back in a social environment,” she said.
“Getting to chit chat with one another and our clients.
“We are also opening two new beauty rooms which is really exciting.”
Despite the challenges that the hair and beauty industry have faced during lockdown the salon have managed to increase their number of staff.
Emma is expecting there to be lots to talk about with her clients when they reopen.
“We haven’t seen any one since Christmas so we’re going to have a really good natter,” Emma said.
“People may have had lockdown babies or weddings that we don’t know about.”
The salon has all the previous Covid-19 safe precautions in place including PPE, spaced out chairs and individual beauty rooms.
Emma said she is excited to see the industry boom again and feels that it will be a big success because people are more grateful for services such as haircuts.
But she also asks for clients to be understanding of what herself and others have been through this year,
Emma said: “I’ve had to throw away around a hundred bottles of gel nail polish because they were out of date.
“They cost between £10 -£16 per bottle.
“I also had to get rid of eyelash glue, eyebrow tints and perm solutions.
