How long is this going to be the new normal??
I was so stressed from finding out our date to going back, we have always had PPE present withing the hair and beauty sector… but not to this extreme.
its been stressful thinking of everything we need trying to find guidance, pushing for help. we basically recived no help at the start, we felt as if our indutry was completely brushed over, and for an industry that pumps billions into the economy every year its not good enough. However the stress is over, hopegully, we have all sourced and found the adequate guidance and PPE. we are raring to keep at it!! it hasn’t been easy and certainly not cheap but tihis is something we are all prepared to do for the foreseeable to ensure we protect ourselves, ours clients and our reputations.
its not easy for anyone in these situations, but we will have to take the rough and the smooth to be abke to work, however, not at the capacity of what we have always known, we now have 15 mins or longer gaps between clients to clean properly, we have no give in appointment times, and we have to be strict. its hard for us but with the help and support of one another and our clients we will do just fine, just be patient and understanding.
as for PPE its not as bad wearing the visor and masks. I thought it would be worse though I have a new found respect for the doctors and nurses out there and anyone lse who has continuously worked through this using these procedures, the masks hurt your ears, and after a while you get light headed, the visors have a tendency to steam up too. Despite all this the look on our clients faces when we are finished giving them their new do is pricesless, we really are feeling very appreciated right now, and its a great feeling, all being well this isnt a permanent new normal, all eventually all restrictions will ease off.
Until then we will keep doing our best, doing our jobs and making people feel great as much as we can and to the best of our abilty
