Covid Update

The salon is set to be open on the 4th of July following the government announcement. We are extremely excited and staying positive for our return to work. However, we have to ensure we follow working guidelines and keep our staff and customers safe. We hope you understand that the salon environment will be very different. These pointers below will lay out exactly what to expect.

Appointment times - To give everyone a fair chance after these long waiting times, we will be completing limited amount of our services. Hair colouring and cutting are of higher priority. It has been said that use of hair dryers will likely not be permitted at this point. This is not confirmed and we will update these steps if more information comes to light. All hair will have to be washed upon entering the salon, this includes Gentlemen. All cuts will be wet cuts.

Appointments MUST be made - We will not accept walk ins. There will be two customers allowed in the salon 2 metres apart at all times. Anyone who attempts to walk in will unfortunately be turned away, you must contact us via phone 01243 583055 or email to book in your appointment. After your appointment is complete, we will not book you in another appointment. Rather we will contact you on a later date to fit you in again. It just ensures that the next person we have in doesn't have to wait too long outside.

No Waiting Area - Once entering the salon you will be escorted to your station. There will be no availability for the next customer to be allowed to wait in the waiting area. Please be on time to ensure we can keep to our schedule. 

Disinfecting - Before and after exiting the salon the door handle will be wiped with disinfectant. The station you will be sat at will have been cleaned. We would politely ask that you use sanitizer on your hands.

Card Only - We will not accept cash payment. Contactless payment is appreciated.


Customer Contact - We are building a list of customers who have contacted us regarding appointments at earliest availability. It is extremely helpful as we can start to build lists in preparation and efficiently fill our books to get as many of you in as possible. If you would like to be considered in the booking process please contact the salon on 01243 583055 or email. We will then be able to contact you back and offer you an appointment. 

Thank you so much for your understanding. We know it is strange and for a little while, the atmosphere you know and love from Elite Design & Cut will be different. But we are doing this to ensure everyone who visits us will stay safe in our care. Please consider before your appointment if you have any symptoms, or if you have been in contact with someone showing signs. In this case, please contact us and inform us that you won't be visiting. We feel so positive about getting back to work and seeing you all again. Thank you so much for your loyalty. See you soon!

Tips

Want Shine?

Add two tablespoons of honey to your conditioner bottle and shake well. Honey helps to seal moisture into the hair which makes it look shiny! 

Heat Damage

If you like to style your hair with heated tools, you are likely causing damage. This can mean split ends, dry texture and generally lifeless hair. What do you do with lifeless hair, you try to tame it using hot tools. It is a catch - 22 situation, but it doesn't have to be. Investing in a spray on heat protector to line the hair before using straighteners or curlers, will reduce damage and allow you a break from having to style it constantly. We recommend one of the Sexy Hair heat protection products. Click the link to find out more about it.

Brush vs Comb

Just remember a brush is for dry hair and a comb is for wet hair. Why? A brush is too harsh for wet hair and can cause the hair to stretch and break. The great thing about a comb is you will likely have to battle your hair in sections, and this will not only reduce the amount of knots, but stop damage. 

Product of the month...

Specially formulated for those who have a curl to their hair. We know the wind has not been your friend lately. Those curls basically have no chance when it comes to the battle against frizz. But hold up - now they do. Whether your curls have gone flat, dry or just wayward, spraying this product into the hair will revive their texture and bounce. Hydration central and did I mention this product smells amazing?
