Healthy Halo Protocols 2021

By on June 19, 2021 in Community |

With great hope that the worst is behind us, and based upon CDC, Barbicide, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and California Board of Cosmetology guidelines and regulations we are able to ease back on some of the restrictions we had in place during the pandemic. PRIVACY & FACE MASKS If you have been vaccinated, the wearing of face masks is optional. If you have not been vaccinated, wear a mask to continue to protect our staff and other guests. Out of respect for your medical history and beliefs, and to be HIPAA compliant, proof of vaccination will not be requested. In an effort to respect the privacy (in the legal, professional, and personal form) of our customers and staff, conversations regarding the vaccine, or choices to wear/not wear a mask, will not be permitted. APPOINTMENTS We are taking appointments for blow outs (Fabulous Blow Outs and Love Is In The Hair) and keratin, scalp, and deep conditioning treatments. Waxing and makeup application appointments are not available at this time. THE BASICS • Hand sanitizer is readily available – please use it upon entry. • Check-in, check-out, payments, and tips will be touch-less. • Please maintain social distancing during your visit. • 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 BE ON TIME! If you are more than ten minutes late, we will cancel your appointment and bill your credit card so we can be fair to other guests and our stylists, and keep to our sanitation protocols. TIPS We are no longer taking cash for services and tips. Tips can be left on your credit card or can be paid direct to your stylist via venmo, apple pay etc. We have a list of stylist account information at our front desks for direct payment. 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...

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...

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.

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.

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...

Beyond Blow Outs

By on September 6, 2020 in About Halo |

As you know, our team of stylists are super-skilled at blow outs. But individually, many also excel in hair cuts and color (and possibly more, you’d have to ask them.) Fostering those skills and opportunity for our team, we’re encouraging our stylists to offer any services they wish to perform at Halo to any client who requests it. Please call 800-425-6179 to find out if your Halo stylist is offering any additional services. Upon re-opening, individual services available will be posted at each stylist’s station. It’s a cake and eat it too situation! One-stop hair-everything at Halo for you, and our stylists have the opportunity to side hustle in the very best way in our fabulous, clean, well-managed, fully-kitted-out salons. (During this time of COVID regulations, some independent services may not be possible. But something to look forward...
