At Port Place Hair Spa we understand that sanitization is a major concern in our industry, it is imperative that our standards are at the highest level for the health and safety of our guests and employees.

So we Practice the most stringent hygiene and sanitization standards and practices, going well above and beyond the government regulations. Outlined below are a few of our polices and practices:

In General: 

When entering the Salon and Spa we require a few things, All Clients and Staff must wear masks No Exceptions (we will provide a mask for a fee of $1.00), We will be checking temperatures with an Infrared Thermometer. Please do not touch the hair products if you need a product let the stylist know and they can prescript what is best for you if your not sure what to get. Please arrive on time for your appointment when your running late it puts us behind for the next client as we have to sanitize the stations and tools. Keep all personal belongings on you at all times. Parents of children getting haircuts please refrain from bringing more than one child at a time (please have a mask that securely fits the child's face). If you can't only bring one child, please keep them with you at all times as there will be no waiting area provided. If possible for the teen or older kids let your stylist know what you are requesting for their service then move back to the waiting room or outside until the service is completed. Walking in to book an appointment is welcomed but only if we have a staff member free to assist you and all rules must be followed including wearing a mask We ask all clients to use the provided hand sanitizer at the front desk.

In the Salon:

We use medical grade sterilizer and disinfectant (Accel) on our scissors, clippers, tools and brushes. We also have daily and weekly sanitization standards in place for all areas of the building.

 

In the Spa:

We never double dip our wax or sugar! We use disposable, one-time use bamboo sticks to retrieve wax from the pot, which diminishes the opportunity for bacteria to grow.

Stainless steel implements are scrubbed, disinfected and sterilized with medical grade sterilizer and disinfectant (Accel).

We never reuse anything that cannot be sterilized such as orangewood sticks and buffer blocks.

Gloves are worn by estheticians for pedicures and certain waxing and facial procedures.

One time use paper is used on our beds during hair removal services.

Pedicure basins are scrubbed and soaked with medical grade disinfectant and sterilizer after each use.

We do not have “Spa Chairs”. Spa chairs and whirlpool type footbaths are a breeding ground for Mycobacterium fortuitum, which is a fast growing bacteria that causes boils and scarring on the legs.

These rules may change as time progresses without notice.
