One “Flu” Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Friday, November 3rd, 2017 | Uncategorized | No Comments

By Christy Noe Ingram, Artistic Director

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.  You know, the one sitting across from you coughing his head off with a fever so high he could hold your Starbucks and keep it hot.  You are trapped! In this month’s episode, let’s talk about the sick and afflicted.

Cold and flu season is upon us once again.  Sickness can wreak havoc on the salon and affect a lot of appointments.  It just takes one person to get the flu, and the next thing you know, the whole salon is sick, as well as other clients and the stylists’ families.  Working in a retirement community, many clients are on oxygen, having treatments such as chemo and radiation, or just getting over surgery.  Catching a mean bug could result in serious issues for those clients with already compromised immune systems.  We realize being sick is never fun, and while getting your hair done may make you feel a little better, we ask that if you are not feeling well, please reschedule for another day.  Your stylist will be happy to get you back in as quickly as possible.  Your appointment in the salon will surely be more pleasurable when you are feeling better.

Cold and flu season doesn’t have to be bad if we all take steps to keep them at bay.  Getting flu shots, washing hands, and minimizing exposure to other people are just a few ways to limit the spread of these nasty bugs.  No one wants to be the elephant in the room.
