With the pandemic impacting the vast majority of the country, it’s hard to know what to say to clients when you’re attempting to refill appointment books. Many clients may be afraid of being infected, they may not want to be around a lot of people and they definitely don’t want to touch a lot of items. However, never fear because as luck would have it, you are operating your business in a suite that lends itself very well to many of the guidelines in place for social distancing. There are several items that you can discuss with your client to ensure they feel at ease when visiting your suite for services.
First, unlike multi-chair salons, Phenix Salon Suites offers the opportunity for one beauty, health, or wellness entrepreneur to work in their own suite without interruptions. This means a one on one service where no one enters your suite unless you allow it. Remember this is an environment where no one will ever haphazardly walks across your workspace. Even more so, a suite provides the perfect opportunity to build in time between clients where a Lifestyle Professional can do additional cleaning and disinfecting of everything from styling tools to chair and doorknobs.
It also lends itself beautifully to eliminating the need to share common items like washbowls, styling chairs, dryers, and work stations. Not to mention general styling tools and products. Further, while there is a lovely entryway in each Phenix, you will never find a large common shared waiting room. Instead, suites are equipped with small benches outside of the rooms which are perfectly suited to a single client.
In addition, for clients that are extra concerned about social distancing, Phenix Lifestyle Professionals have 24/7 keyed access to their own suites. This means that clients can easily be scheduled in off-hours to ensure that there is not a lot of social interaction with anyone but their service provider.
Plus, as an added benefit for those that want to change from a multi-chair salon to a suite, there’s no wait to move in as long as there is a suite available and that’s pretty sweet!
