Outgrown & Ready To Go: Pizazz Salon is set to open its doors June 1, with safety precautions

on May 20, 2020

Thank you for being patient while we have not been able to operate the salon. We are excited to get back to work and see all of you! The plan is to reopen the salon Monday, June 1, by appointment only. We are creating a plan for scheduling appointments, while keeping health and safety as our top priority. Please understand that the salon will not be operating under our usual appointment schedule, and we will be fair and efficient in scheduling our clients as quickly as possible. Because of healthcare regulations, the salon will be available only for our independent living residents until further notice. Let us offer some important information about how we plan to bring some Pizazz to your lives.

Appointment Scheduling:  We will begin calling clients the week of May 25, and ask that you do not call to schedule your own appointment. We understand that a lot of you are eager to see us, and we will do our best to get everyone in as soon as possible. Only one stylist will be allowed to operate at a time, and with our safety precautions in place, the previous appointment schedule will not be followed at this time. Kathy will be in the salon on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Shannon will see customers on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Before your Appointment:  The waiting area for your appointment will be in the Village Entrance lobby. You do not need to arrive more than five minutes earlier than your appointment time. We will require some time between clients to disinfect the salon and our equipment, and having you wait in the lobby area will help limit the amount of people congregating in the hallway. Once we are ready for your appointment, we will notify the Hospitality Desk staff, and they will send you to the salon. 

Entering Pizazz Salon:  Entry into the salon will be allowed only for clients with a scheduled appointment. Should you want to schedule an appointment or have a question, please contact the Hospitality Desk at (785) 323-3847. If you are not scheduled to be in the salon, please do not enter the salon. 

During your Appointment: Just as in all areas outside of your home, face masks are required. Stylists and clients will always be required to wear face coverings during appointments.  Please contact the Hospitality Desk if you need a mask.

   Most appointments will be scheduled with only one client in the salon at a time, and we will follow social distancing guidelines should there be more than one client. For efficiency, we may schedule strategically and fit in a haircut while another client is sitting under the dryer. We also may ask that those living in the same residence schedule appointments together. Markings will be placed on the floor; please abide by the markings to maintain social distancing.

After your Appointment:  The check-out process will be contactless, as we will not require a signature on any tickets. Once you have exited the salon, the cleaning process will begin for our next appointment. 

We are excited to open and take this step in bringing back some normalcy to Meadowlark. With your cooperation, we can make this a safe transition!
