What to Expect at Your Next Appointment

Under the most recent announcements from Governor Kemp, Forever Young Hair Salon will reopen on Friday, April 24th, with strict sanitization and social distancing guidelines. We understand many have anxiety and fears regarding coming to the salon. Our plan to reopen takes into account those fears combined with economic concerns. If you are comfortable with the guidelines we have set, we welcome you and look forward to serving you. Our safety protocols incorporate standards set by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology and the CDC to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases, many of which we implemented in March prior to closing.

When You Arrive at the Salon

Please bring your own mask. It is mandated by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology all “clients should wear face masks to the extent possible while receiving services.” Please stay in your car with the air conditioning on, so we can measure the most accurate temperature reading. We are diligently working to sanitize all touchpoints between every guest. Text us your name when you arrive for your appointment. Once your station is sanitized and ready, we’ll text you back and greet you at the door to take your temperature and have you sign a service waiver confirming you can answer “no” to the following questions:

  • Have you had a cough?

  • Have you had a fever?

  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the past 14 days?

  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?
