WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT

 

Under the most recent announcements from Mayor Hogsett, Evolve Salon will reopen on Monday, June 1st with strict sanitization and social distancing guidelines. We understand many have anxiety and fears regarding coming to the salon. Our plan to reopen takes into account all of those fears. If you are comfortable with the guidelines we have set, we welcome you and look forward to serving you. Our safety protocols incorporate standards set by the Indiana State Board of Cosmetology and the CDC to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases.  Sanitation is nothing new to us, we will just be adding additional steps to maximize everyone’s safety.

Please understand we are rebooking over a thousand missed appointments and are calling/texting all of our Evolve Salon family. We are not accepting walk-ins. All appointments will be scheduled and confirmed ahead of time. We have shut off online booking, until we can get caught up and have helped everyone who has missed an appointment.  Please feel free to leave a message at our salon phone 317-536-8658, with your name, stylist preference, and services needed. Your stylist will get back to you as soon as possible. We will respond as soon as we can.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE 

Please bring your own mask. It is mandated by the Indiana State Board of Cosmetology all “clients should wear face masks to the extent possible while receiving services.” If you do not have a mask, they will be available for purchase for $2.00.

Please stay in your car with the air conditioning on, so we can measure the most accurate temperature reading. We are diligently working to sanitize all touchpoints between every guest.

Call the salon when you arrive for your appointment. Once your stylist is ready and their station is sanitized, we’ll call you back and greet you at the door to take your temperature and have you sign a service waiver confirming you can answer “no” to the following questions:

  • Have you had a cough?
  • Have you had a fever?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the past 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?

 

After you have signed in the entry, and your stylist we ask that you wash your hands for 20 seconds per CDC guidelines before entering the salon.  We will have hand sanitizer at each station as well.
