Phase Three Health and Safety Protocol Updates!!!!!

If you do not currently have an appointment you may book one through our online booking portal. If you are rescheduling or cancelling an appointment, or have made appointments online with us in the recent past, you can go through your initial notification emails and it will remember you so you do not have to input all your information again.

For video and photo updates please check out the “COVID-19 Prep” Highlighted Story on The Glass Menagerie’s Instagram. This is being updated today and may continue to be updated in the future as information changes so it’s always good to double check before coming in for your appointment. I will also try to get the new info up on my blog on
We want to be very clear that the protocols currently in place for health and safety are non-negotiable, many are legally mandated and our failure to comply could result in loss of Cosmetology license permanently. Please don’t risk that for us. If you anticipate being unable to comply with these protocols PLEASE postpone your appointment. If you show up and refuse to comply, services will not be rendered and you will be charged 50% of your scheduled services.
Do not bring anyone with you to your appointment. We are only allowed to work one-on-one. If you are bringing a child or you would like to come with someone from your same household please email me at to see if we can accommodate that.
When you arrive in the parking lot at the Hilltop Shopping Center please text me at 703.945.9289 to let me know you have arrived. Please include your name so I can track my schedule properly.  I do not currently have everyone saved in my phone and I would like to avoid unnecessary confusion.
I will respond quickly if possible, and when I am able (done with my previous client AND done with sanitation and disinfection of the full studio space) I will text you that I am coming down to you. I will no longer be going out to the parking lot to get you, we will meet at the bottom of the stairs next to the elevator.
I will bring out hand sanitizer and a tri-ply mask. You will sanitize your hands and put the mask on with its ear loops. That way your hands are clean before you touch your face while adjusting the mask.
We will walk up to the studio and I will buzz us in. There is also an elevator for those who prefer it.
Once inside we will go directly to my studio space and we will wash our hands before we tape the mask on. Taping the mask on allows me to remove the ear loops so I can work freely and provide every service fully. The tape I am using is KT Tape (kinesiology tape), which is designed for long term wear on skin and is flexible and breathable.
We will then be able to freely work as close as possible to normal for all services.
Only when services have been completed and you have left the building may the mask be removed. There is a trash bin at the base of the stairs that is easily accessible for disposing of your mask.
If you would like to bring your own mask please be aware that I still need to be able to tape the mask on and remove the ear loops from my workspace. I strongly suggest just letting me use my disposable masks.
Masks must remain on the entire time you are in the building and I will not be able to accommodate smoke breaks for clients or myself during services. I currently have Juicy Fruit and Orbit Wintermint gum as options to prevent dry mouth. I recommend the Wintermint because the “cool” feeling really helps with the mask. If you would prefer nicotine gum or other accommodations please bring those for yourself. Starting after next weekend I will also be providing individually wrapped straws if you would like to bring a beverage for longer appointments. The mask must still remain on at all times.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to me via my direct email
