OUR STAFF as you know, we’ve always been diligent with adhering to Toronto Public Health and Safety Standards. We take responsibility in providing you with a safe, sanitary and inviting environment. Our staff will be disinfecting treatment rooms, hair stations and esthetic areas between clients. High touch areas, including reception area and debit/credit card machine will be cleaned many times throughout the day.

Our team members will go through a Safe to Work check-in process prior to each shift, including temperature checks and masks.
