Dear Trimmings Family,

We are excited to announce that we have begun the re-opening process. We expect things to change and evolve over time, and we will keep you updated. Our return to normal will be a marathon, not a sprint. Please read the following before calling to make your appointment.

We have been working with the state board to create a set of guidelines during this transition time. We ask that you read, understand, and are prepared to abide by these guidelines. Our licenses depend on strict adherence to these guidelines. We are not able to make any adjustments or exceptions.

REQUIREMENTS FOR BOOKING

 

  • Your household must have been covid-19 symptom free AND have remained within the state of Maine for the past 14 days.

  • Appointments only, all must made over the phone. We are working a limited schedule, booking a max of 1-2 weeks out. Please note, we have to allow an adequate amount of time in between clients to properly clean + disinfect, this means booking a smaller number of appointments in a given day. If all available spots are full, you may need to call back at a later time. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. 

 

  • We are currently only able to accommodate children age 5+.

 

  • Haircuts must be paid for at time of booking. *Non-refundable if you no-show or cancel within 24 hours of appointment (except in case of illness). Cash only tips, each stylist has their own “tip jar”. 

 

  • Children may be accompanied by one adult. If you have multiple children that need haircuts we will take them in one at a time. 

DAY OF APPOINTMENT

 

Haircuts will be pre-paid. Products are available for purchase (via phone payment) ***Cash only tips 

 

  • Please wait in your vehicle in your designated spot until your appointment time. The stylist will approach your car, + ask a series of health questions.

 

  • You may enter the salon, + sanitize your hands.

 

  • The stylist will direct your child to the appropriate chair. Parents, you will have a chair nearby, please stay in that “parent area” for the duration of the haircut.

 

  • At the completion of the haircut, the stylist will step back, and you may come take a closer look.

 

  • You must sanitize your hands again prior to exiting.

THE FINE PRINT……

 

  • Haircut services only.  

         No shampoo, blow-dry, braiding or styling is available.          

             Also, bang trim only appointments are not available at this time.

 

  • On arrival, hair needs to be clean, brushed, + free of dirt, sand, etc.

 

  • Stylist will be wearing a gown, mask, + face shield. This will look very different to children. Please explain this to your child prior to arrival so they are not surprised or fearful.

 

  • Children must be able to get a haircut "independently". There can be no lap sitting, hand holding, etc during the cut. They will have to follow the instructions of the stylist. If they cannot safely do so, we will be forced to end the haircut, and no refund will be given.

 

  • Adult + child must wear a mask properly at all times. During the haircut, the stylist may ask the child to place their hand over the mask to hold it in place while they work around the ears.

 

  • Bathrooms are currently for staff use only.

           (except in cases of extreme emergency. Please plan accordingly)

 

  • There will be no waiting room as well as no toys, trains, or fidget items.

This is an incredibly hard time for all of us at Trimmings. These guidelines make the work that we love less than ideal, but they are necessary to keep our community safe. We can't wait to welcome you back!
