News from A Cut Above

July 10, 2020 Hello, New Normal! Let's Be Beautiful, Together

It's hard to believe we've been re-opened for almost two months. It's hard to believe we were closed for nearly two months. You know what's really beautiful? That we're all making it through together.  

We are super proud of our staff and customer family for the classy way everyone has stepped up and embraced the many regulations and guidelines from the State of Ohio, and generally taken an awesome, common-sense, kind and understanding approach to maintaining a personal care and beauty business in 2020. 

If you're coming back to Kent State for the new semester, or just slowly re-entering the world after quarantine, here's how to make an appointment and what to expect at A Cut Above these days. 

 

  1.  To make an appointment, please contact your stylist directly. In order to comply with current requirements, each stylist is making individual appointments. If you cannot contact your stylist directly, message us here. When you contact us, please leave your name, phone number and stylist's name.

  2. MASKS ARE REQUIRED for everyone in the salon. If you are medically unable to wear a mask, please discuss that with your stylist when making your appointment.  (If you don’t have a mask when you arrive, let us know – we usually have some available.)

  3. Before entering the salon for your appointment, contact your stylist to let us know you’re here. This is necessary to minimize the number of people inside the salon. We'll get you inside as soon as possible! 

  4. Only clients are permitted inside the salon. When your child needs a service, or an aide is required due to medical circumstances, one parent or aide is allowed in. (At this time, we cannot schedule services for parents and children at the same time; separately scheduled appointments are required to meet these guidelines.)

  5. Unfortunately, we cannot accept walk-ins at this time. But don't despair - or try to cut your own hair, lol! Just call us at 330-673-9222 and leave a message, or contact us here and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please remember to leave your name, phone number and preferred stylist's name, if known.

  6. Thank you for your patience and positivity in this process. We appreciate how you take care of yourselves and others - and it is that spirit that makes it a joy to continue serving you!

March 17, 2020  Our Response to COVID-19

 

Dear A Cut Above Friends and Family,

We want to assure you that we’re acting with an abundance of caution, and at the same time, trying to keep things as “normal” as possible. (Ha! Whatever that means!)

Below are some things we are doing to address the safety and well-being of our clients, staff, and their families. All of these are things we were doing six weeks ago, six years ago - you get the idea – and now, we’re doing them with extra intention.

  • New cape for every client, then straight to the laundry

  • Sink and chair sprayed with disinfectant and wiped down after every client

  • Chair and station sprayed and sanitized between each client

  • Door nobs, front counter and banister wiped down hourly

  • Front counter pens sanitized frequently (more than hourly)

  • Hand sanitizer is located throughout the shop for shop and clients

We’ve also removed all of the magazines and toys from our shop for the time being, and staff coffee cups are relegated to the staff area only.

So yes, we’re still open and plan to be until and unless we’re told to do otherwise. And we are absolutely certain we will get through this!

 

Love,

Karen and all of the A Cut Above Family
