Even now, COVID is casting uncertainties on businesses. Waxing studios especially need to be aware of proper sanitation, disinfection, and personal protection. In addition to all of our waxing supplies, Bare Beauty Wax Supply has disinfectant and other protective supplies for estheticians. We also have affiliate discounts for PPE supplies through trusted manufacturers.
Keeping yourself and clients safe
In these times, keeping everyone in your business safe takes a high priority. As licensed professionals, we need to look out for the safety of ourselves, our employees, and clients. Your clients will appreciate your dedication to their wellbeing!
In the waiting room
At the height of the pandemic, many businesses limited their waiting room to just one client. Now that things are returning to somewhat normal, most have reverted to typical waiting rooms. However, with the delta variant on the rise, it's important to take precautions to keep you, your employees, and clients safe. Consider enforcing masks while clients sit in the waiting room with each other, and take the time to disinfect seating areas, tables, and other shared items regularly.
During the appointment
Additionally, take safety precautions during each appointment. Wearing a face mask, face shield, or a combination of both helps to make sure that you won’t get sick, and that you won’t spread germs to your clients. Get vaccinated, and you make it much harder to be infected by COVID. On the off chance that you do catch the disease, you won’t be able to work for two weeks. Don’t take that risk for your business, and stay safe instead.
The importance of disinfectant
Besides PPE, masks, gloves, and face shields, disinfectant is your strongest ally against germs and disease. As licensed professionals, estheticians are trained to high standards of sanitation and disinfection. But why is it so important, and what are the best products you ought to use?
Why should you always disinfect your surfaces?
Put simply, disinfection means killing all microorganisms whether they are harmful or not, to prevent the spread of infection and disease. Some pathogens live on surfaces for up to several months, so regularly cleaning surfaces is the only way to reduce transmission by touch. Areas of your studio that often get touched or sat on should be the focus of your disinfectant routine.
Products to use
Bare Beauty Wax Supply offers several disinfectants for use in your studio and business. We offer high quality, trusted products for quick and safe sanitary practices.
Known worldwide, BARBICIDE is a recognizable blue liquid that’s the standard for salons, barber shops, and of course, spas and waxing studios. It is safe for non-porous surfaces, and an easy to mix formula frees up precious shelf space. It doesn’t stain skin or surfaces, either! As with all disinfectant products, it works when you let the applied surface air dry.
Another wonderful brand fit for any business is Opti-Cide® MAX surface disinfectant. This cleaner is safe to use on any clinical surface, and kills all harmful organisms within 2 minutes. Unlike other formulas Opti-Cide® MAX is low in alcohol content, meaning it won’t cloud plastics. Quicker disinfectant time means higher turnover!
Set a precedent for your clients
Overall, your clients expect to feel safe and comfortable during an appointment at your business. Set the right expectations for them the moment they walk through the door, and the rest of their experience is set up for success.
Clients don’t return to dirty businesses
Think about the first experience you had going for a wax. If you returned for another booking there, what motivated you to do so? The esthetician and space were likely welcoming and relaxing. You felt taken care of, and were in a clean, professional environment.
Messy, cluttered spaces aren’t likely to retain a large number of repeat clients. If a client thinks your business is dirty, unsanitary, and therefore unsafe? They might not even go through with the rest of their appointment. Set up the atmosphere of your studio to guarantee positive customer experience.
Keep open communication with your clients
Another important tip is to keep the lines of communication open and clear with all of your clients. Make sure they know what your mask policy is, if you have one. Be clear about your cleaning and disinfection standards, and your clients will know what to expect.
Having this open communication also makes your clients more inclined to rebook with you. They feel welcomed, heard, and comfortable.
