As the country comes out the other side of the coronavirus pandemic, restrictions continue to be lifted as life returns to “normal”. Despite the Government changing the rules around PPE on July 19 – no longer making it mandatory in certain settings – just under two thirds of you (63%) are still requiring staff and clients to wear a face covering in salon, while 22% are asking staff to wear the same PPE as before but are letting clients choose what they want to do.
Meanwhile, helping your clients in any way possible is an important part of your job, which is why three quarters are looking to book their team on training to help them spot the signs of domestic violence on customers. On page 51, beauty business coach and Professional Beauty London speaker Liz McKeon explains why she has become the UK and Ireland ambassador for Shear Haven’s domestic violence salon training.
