Healthy Halo Protocols

By on January 29, 2021 in Community |

Things are going to look a bit different around Halo for a while. Same dedication to customer care and fabulous hair, of course, but we are also taking seriously our responsibility to prevent the spread of the virus within the Halo community, and so have implemented these protocols. We thank you in advance for partnering with us in following our COVID policies, which are based upon CDC, Barbicide, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and California Board of Cosmetology guidelines and regulations. The latest re-opening news. APPOINTMENTS We are taking appointments for blow outs (Fabulous Blow Outs and Love Is In The Hair) and keratin, scalp, and deep conditioning treatments. No waxing or makeup application until we can responsibly do so. THE “BYO WET HAIR” BLOW OUT For those who want a blow out, but don’t want to commit to a full Fab Blow Out, we’ve created an additional blow dry for these times – arrive for your Fab Blow Out with washed, wet hair. This allows you to skip the wash sinks and go directly to the dryer, limiting your exposure and time in public. It is $37, and takes 30 minutes. THE BASICS • Please wear a mask at all times. (Yes, we can do keratin treatments and blow outs around a mask!) • Hand sanitizer is readily available – please use it upon entry. • Toilets are closed. • Check-in, check-out, payments, and tips will be touch-less. • Please maintain social distancing during your visit. • Please do not bring a friend, partner, or child. • No animals allowed, including support animals. (American Disability Act animals are welcome.) • Please avoid touching! That’s of our staff and others, as well as avoidable objects and product displays. • Please bring as little as possible to your appointment. If you can, do without your purse. • Please do not wear gloves into our facilities unless you put on a fresh pair as you arrive in our lobby. • Sadly, at this time, we cannot offer refreshments as we usually do. • If you, or a house-mate, has any symptoms of sickness please re-schedule your appointment. (Our staff too! We’ll be checking their temperature daily as a precaution.) PLEASE...

Covid & Our Community

By on January 20, 2021 in Community |

Halo is re-opening on Friday, January 29th. BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. We are excited to offer blow outs, keratin treatments, and scalp and hair treatments in Burlingame and Los Altos, Monday through Saturday, 9am to 5pm. Waxing and make-up treatments will not be available until they can be performed safely. For appointments, please book on-line or call 800-425-6179. We’ll be adhering to these Healthy Halo Policies. Walk-ins will not be allowed at this time–an appointment is required for entry to maintain social distancing and to limit the number of people in a salon at any one time. Bookmark this page, or follow us on Facebook or Instagram, for updates as conditions change. Please note that any info here can change quickly if San Mateo County (our Burlingame location) or Santa Clara County (our Los Altos location) changes their policies. We’ll do our best to keep you informed. ……………………. Thank you all for your support during this shutdown. We look forward to seeing you...
