Just a heads up…

Reopening dates could still change and people can continue to book appointments through the online booking portal…

Appointments look to be filling up quickly, the current reopening date is May 9th…



Moving Target…

Executive Order 53 said no salon until April 24th…

Executive Order 55 strengthens EO53 and extends it until a June 11th opening date…

DPOR is currently claiming salons MAY be able to open on April 24th, but I’m not understanding how that’s possible with the information in EO53 and EO55.

The stay-at-home order in place makes certain breaking of social distancing a misdemeanor (punishable by up to a year in jail and/or up to a $2,500 fine)…

It is unclear to me how hair salon appointments could be an exception since it requires one-on-one physical contact in order to perform services…

I am uncomfortable going back into salon before the threat level is sufficiently low for myself and my clients…

If I go into salon early and I become infected by a client or co-worker then I will infect countless clients before I even show symptoms.

I am not willing to risk the health and safety of my clients with an early return…

I currently plan on not being in salon until EO55 is over.

COVID 19 Salon Update…

We’re going to get through this together.

As most of you already know, Virginia Governor Northam placed executive order 53 into effect Tuesday March 24th at midnight. In this executive order a 30 closure of hair salons  mandated.

The salon I work at is closed. I will not be making “house calls” because it defeats the purpose of the closure and would risk me losing my cosmetology license permanently.

In the meantime, I’m working hard on contacting clients about scheduling and rescheduling upcoming appointments, taking some time for additional online classes (taking and teaching), and doing hair extension check-in emails for my existing clients who may want completely fresh hair when this is all over.

Currently my soonest appointments available are May 5th or later for most services.

2020 Schedule…

There may be some changes, so it’s not up on the schedule page on my website yet, but I just wanted to put it out there as a heads up.

January 8th through February 5th

February 19th through March 18th

April 1st through April 29th

May 13th through June 10th

June 24th through July 22nd

August 5th through September 2nd

September 16th through October 14th

October 28th through November 25th

December 10th through December 24th

This is 9 trips to Virginia, 8 of which are 29 days long, all of which only account for 9 days spent in Texas in between trips.

What this means is that I will not be available while I am not in the salon. With such a short period of time to recharge my batteries, I need to be able to focus on that between trips. Thank you in advance for understanding
