How has lockdown been for you?!

How are we all feeling after six weeks of lockdown? Are you feeling the effects? Love it, loathe it or feeling indifferent? Personally home tutoring has kept me very busy, with varying levels of success. Fitness is high on my agenda and I’m definitely fitter now than the start of Lockdown! The team are all employed but Furloughed and we’ve been keeping in touch through varied group chat apps. We had a pretty lively fancy dress party for Abi’s birthday!

The easing of lockdown restrictions for hairdressers

What will social distancing look like for hair salons, for Material’s team and for you, our guests? Could this video be the new norm for hairdressers?!!!

Hairdressing at a social distance!

All joking aside, there will be some changes to salon life for quite some time after work starts again. Looking at what’s happening in Italy, Spain and Germany, there are so many varied scenarios and possible solutions to consider on reopening. However speculation is pointless at this stage.

If you had a booking with us before lockdown

Since Material closed none of the appointments booked in have been cancelled. Online booking has closed too. In terms of booking appointments the fairest way will be to start systematically from when Material closed and offer those guests the first appointments. If you’re a regular but didn’t rebook an appointment don’t worry you’ll be prioritised too. You may have booked multiple appointments across the year, those appointments are valid and won’t be changed unless you need them to. Perhaps you didn’t have a future booking when we closed? Then please email – to be added to the waiting list.

On line booking will reopen after all existing appointments and wait list requests have been honoured.

Inevitably there will be a rush to begin with. It’s very likely Material will stay open for longer days and/or extra days. Everyone will be accommodated as fairly and as promptly as possible.
