Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What safety precautions are you taking to mitigate the spread of COVID-19?

A: Please see protocols below:


Currently, we are keeping our door locked and admitting guests by appointment only.


Guests must wait in their car or outside until their service provider has a fully sanitized station/room ready for them. We are reminding guests that in the cold winter months to call when you arrive to avoid any wait time outside in the colder temperatures. With capacity restrictions, we are limiting staff to accommodate more guests, thank you for your patience when calling.

At check in, we are taking all of our guests’ temperatures and asking a few health screening questions. (Our team undergoes the same procedure at the start of each shift.) We ask that every guest sanitize their hands upon entering or use our hand wash station in our nail area prior to their service. All guests and employees are required to wear masks at all times.


***(The only exception to masking is for a massage, waxing or facial service that requires the removal of the mask. In that circumstance, our estheticians are wearing additional PPE during those services. When a guest is face down for massage, our massage therapist has created a temporary barrier that is changed for each guest so guests may remove their masks for comfort.)


No guests or employees are admitted in with a temperature of 99.5 or higher or if they are experiencing symptoms. If you arrive with a temperature higher than 99.5, we will ask you to please reschedule your appointment. Our company is following all CDC recommended guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing.

In salon/spa, we follow a specific sanitation protocol throughout the facility every 2 hours per current health department regulations, or more often as needed.

Stations are at least 6 feet apart to accommodate safe distancing.


Every service provider’s work area is fully sanitized between every guest.

Whenever possible, disposable tools will be used to perform services.

We are paperless at this time: Payment will be by credit card, debit card or gift card.


No food or drink is permitted in the salon or spa at this time.

Please read below for specific appointment guidelines:

* If you are traveling out of state, please follow the MD state guidelines for returning and plan on rescheduling any upcoming appointments to 14 days after you return.


*If you or someone in your household is symptomatic, please reschedule.


*If you or someone in your household is awaiting COVID test results or quarantining, please reschedule. 

*If, at any time during your appointment you begin to feel unwell, please notify us immediately.

Q: Are you currently open for all service offerings?

A: We are open for services in all of our departments with the exception of Old Fashion Shaves and Makeup Applications. Both of these services require our guests to be unmasked in open areas of our facility, so we are not performing these services at this time.

Q: Do you take walk-in or call-in appointments?

A: Our talented service providers are typically committed to guests weeks in advance. We try to accommodate walk-in or call-in appointments as often as we can, but the best way to secure an appointment is to reserve in advance. Per current Anne Arundel County (COVID) regulations, we are currently serving our guests By Appointment Only.
