Yes, yes, yes as a rule our salon requires and ensures skin testing is mandatory and we are never afraid to say no turning away guests who don't come for their testing. This is very important to us and is within our mission statement to provide high standards of service, customer care and safety.
However, as a rule our policy ensures all of our team insist on giving correct patch testing and advice and will never consider chemical services because of the potential consequences in both Hair and Beauty services.
"Below is an unfortunate circumstance which is the reason as a brand we never skip a skin test" Says Amy, Salon Director & Careologistst.
If as a guest you have a positive reaction this area will become red, itchy and irritated usually (but not always) within 60minutes. If there is a negative reaction nothing will happen and it is safe for the treatment to take place.
This must be repeated every 4/6 months depending either on insurance or manufacturer policy. It is highly important your skin test is regularly upto date, as repeated exposure to a product can eventually develop into an allergy. Please know; It is not good enough that as a guest you have had the treatment or a similar service previously elsewhere – you MUST have a skin test with our brand as the product may be produced by a different manufacturer or date has lapsed.

Take on-board; Due to Coronavirus attacking the immune system we also insist any guest who has had Covid-19 contact us prior any chemical service for RE-TESTING. Failure to do so may result in the service been refused until your skin test is clear.
