The decade's most triggering comedy
Now that Georgia governor Brian Kemp has started to reopen the state, one kind of business has jumped back in with a vengeance: hair salons and barbershops.
Those shops reopened on Friday, as the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) reports. Beginning at 7 a.m., customers started showing up at Peachtree Battle Barber Shop in Buckhead. One customer stated, “I certainly don’t want to spread it to anyone so I’ve got a mask, but I’m not really concerned. If you’re cutting hair or you’re a waiter, you haven’t been working, so it helps get the economy started again.”
The Van Michael salons want customers to sign a liability waiver that states, according to AJC, “While we are taking your safety and that of our staff very serious, by employing new safety and sanitation initiatives, we cannot guarantee that any of these measure will protect you from contracting COVID-19.” They add, “Temporarily, we will not be doing any blow-drying in the salon in order to prevent forceful airflow of any germs. We ask that you come with your hair clean (shampooed within 3 hours of the appointment time), dry and pulled away from your face, so that we can either spray your hair rather than shampoo, or cut it dry, again to avoid possible close proximity germ spread. We would like to limit shampoos to only removing color from the hair. Please know how important the best possible luxury service for you is to us. Any adjustments in your service regarding shampoos and blow-drys will be temporary.”
In Dallas, Georgia, at Studio 151, someone was already taking advantage of the services by 6:30 a.m. The salon had reassured customers by stating on Facebook its excitement about reopening and a list of procedures it was following :
We are so excited about reopening this Friday for business. As excited as we are, we have made a protocol list of what to expect as the “new normal” takes shape … Rest assured, we take these steps very serious for not only our protection, but for your protection as well. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you all as soon as you feel comfortable. Until then, take care and stay healthy.
