Regarding the Covid -19 Pandemic
A Important Message from Mary
To all my valued friends and and clients,
Five months have passed since I returned to the studio post lockdown. It has been such a joy to see all of your smiling faces and to those that I have not yet met, Hello!
Since maintaining a 6 foot distance will absolutely not be possible for this industry, I have temporarily made changes to the business to maximize safety for both you and I.
I have taken a certification course through Barbicide (the top used disinfectant company in the salon industry) and have gone through the EPA website to ensure I have the proper disinfecting solutions and tools to properly clean the salon and will be doing thorough cleanings prior to each appointment. I have been thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting commonly touched areas in the studio as well as changing my mask between every client. On that note, freshly laundered capes and towels will be used for each and every client.
Each day, I will self screen for Covid-19 symptoms. If I present with any, I will promptly cancel my day and seek a test. I have each client’s contact information so if I were to get ill, I will be in contact anyone I have had contact with. I ask that in return you do the same prior to your appointment. If you are at all sick or feel even slightly under the weather, I respectfully ask that you stay home. On this note, my late cancellation fee will be waved for the next months if you have to cancel due to illness.
**What to expect for your upcoming appointment**
Only one person is allowed in the studio at a time unless you are accompanying a minor from your household who is scheduled for an appointment.
When you arrive, I ask you to text the salon phone (360-553-5056) from your car. I will text you back when I am ready to meet you at the front door. (It is locked from the outside and you are not allowed to enter unless I am present)
Please know that a mask is *required* for the duration of your appointment as well as at all times while in Sola Salon Studios.
Upon entering, I do ask that you either wash or sanitize your hands. Hand sanitizer will be readily available in the studio, if you choose to wash instead of sanitize, I ask that you use the restroom sink for this purpose.
Once you are in the studio, If you have not been in since the lockdown, I will have you fill out a covid screening form / waiver stating that you have not had symptoms or been knowingly exposed to Covid-19 in the 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
If you have a longer appointment, I encourage you to bring a phone or tablet as magazines have been removed for the time being.
I encourage you to bring water as the water filling station and fountain have been turned off.
Due to extra time between appointments, late arrivals (10 or more minutes late) may not be able to be accomodated at this time. Please be punctual.
As always and for best results, it is important that if you are getting a cut, you arrive with your hair prepped for your cut! This means recently cleansed, detangled (tangles are normal, but no mattes or large tangles), and hair down (no clips or ponytails!) It is fine to have a little product (like gels or foams) in to have definition, but please refirain from using any heavy oils or creams.
If you are getting a cut only, I strongly encourage considering an express cut as I am trying to limit blow drying as much as possible since this virus can be transmitted through droplets in the air.
Your safety and health is my top priority along with the health of myself, my husband, my children and my immunocompromised close family members. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me. Should you choose to wait until a later phase to visit, I completely understand and whole heartedly respect your decisions. We will get through this and again, this is temporary.
I am looking forward to seeing all of your lovely faces and have missed you all so very much. This time off has given me time to reflect on my choices and I am so happy to be a part of your lives. Thank you and stay healthy.
Hi, I'm Mary
I have been a hairstylist since 2011. In 2014 I decided to enter the curl world by taking my first DevaCurl class. After seeing the difference I could make in curly girls' lives, I decided to make curls my main focus. I also take continuing education very seriously. Currently, I have a Level 3 DevaCurl Master Stylist Certification, and am also Rëzo Certified, Curl by Curl Certified and Curly Hair Artistry Certified. I have completed courses with curl gurus including the Queen of Curls, Lorraine Massey, Scott Musgrave, Nubia Suarez and Atoya Bass as well as taking classes with companies such as Wella, Paul Mitchel, Sunglights Balayage, Scruples, Joico, CHI and I frequently attend trade shows.
When you sit down in my chair I like to take into consideration your lifestyle, individual curl type and personal style to create a look unique to you. My curly cuts are done dry and I take a personalized approach to making your style one that will surely stand out.
Outside of the salon, I am wife and mother to two fantastic kids and a fur-baby. Karaoke is my guilty pleasure and there is nothing I enjoy more than putting on a great album and turning the volume up to 11! I also enjoy traveling and taking classes to bring you the latest cutting edge styles and techniques.
Mary is by far the most knowledgable, passionate hair stylist I have ever encountered. Especially regarding her curly cuts and curly hair in general! She has revitalized my curls through specific curly cut techniques as well as help me find the correct styling routine/products to accommodate my once thought-to-be untameable hair. Gratitude is an understatement for the work Mary has done for me and my curls. Every time I leave her shop, I am beaming with confidence and satisfaction. Mary is extremely sweet, very funny and provides a welcoming environment. I highly recommend!
