Christchurch hair salon Pure Hair goes the extra mile for clients at higher risk of infection
(12 May 2020) A Christchurch hair salon which pioneered the move to reduce chemical overload has created a dedicated treatment area at its salon specifically to look after clients who are at higher risk of infection with COVID-19.
Pip Adams, Director of Pure Hair and Barbers on Colombo Street in Sydenham created the dedicated area to cater for clients with a less robust immune system who may be concerned about contracting COVID-19.
Clients can request their hairdressing in this separate, 40-square-metre area, apart from other clients and staff.
In addition to the option to enter the salon via a separate entrance, clients using this facility will also be attended to by a single member of staff.
“With the anxiety around transmission of the virus, I wanted to make a special effort to reassure the most vulnerable of our clients,” said Ms Adams.
“We have put these unique procedures in place so that these clients can still enjoy a long-anticipated visit to the salon in a safe way that will ensure their peace of mind. This is on top of a robust cleaning and disinfection protocol as advocated by our governing body, NZRAH.”
“Our clients’ health and well-being was at the heart of our becoming a sustainable, natural organic salon,” noted Ms Adams. “That same ethos informed our decision to sequester more vulnerable clients in a separate area.”
Clients wishing to partake of the service who have not already booked are asked to ring the salon on 03 377 1044 or make a booking online via the website. The salon is fully booked until the middle of June, and staff will be working 7 days a week to meet the pent-up demand for haircare.
Established in 2008 Pure Hair and Barbers is Christchurch’s leading organic and sustainable hair salon. It is located at 449 Colombo Street in Christchurch, New Zealand.
