The Bella Red Salon COVID19 Safety Plan

Hi Friends of Bella Red Salon,

We hope this post finds you safe and healthy!

WE ARE OPEN AGAIN! YAY! Governor Inslee and the State of Washington released their Phase 2 Salon & Spa reopening guidelines and we’ve been strictly adhering to them. How do they affect the salon and your salon experience? I break it down for you here, beginning with:


  • The goal is to make this a touchless experience, where you touch very little. This helps protect you as well as employees and other clients.
  • When Phase 2 is announced, Bella Red Salon will begin booking appointments. If you haven’t already, use the Bella Red Salon Waitlist form and let us know your desired appointment stylist, day, and time. Have your credit card ready when your appointment books. Bella Red Salon will accept your credit card information and place it within our encrypted and secure POS system. Bella Red Salon will take your credit card information over the phone when you book your first appointment back, just like clinics and hospitals are doing now. The information is secure in our POS system. It means you will not have to swipe your card or touch a keypad. Fewer touches, fewer chances to get COVID-19.
  • Before arriving for your appointment, client must do a self-health check before their appointment and sign a Bella Red Salon COVID-19 Health Online Acknowledgement that they are healthy. Any client reporting and/or experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms will be politely asked to reschedule at a later date at no cost to the client.
  • Bella Red Salon is limiting the amount of items you can bring in. Fewer items means less possible exposure to COVID-19. The client should only bring their ID, credit card, phone, and vehicle keys. If worried about other personal items like a purse or coat being left in your vehicle, please leave them at home.
  • Come alone due to occupancy limitations. Arrive five minutes early for your appointment with mask and patience. This is new to us just like it is new to you. Expect appointments to run 15-30 minutes longer as we adjust to a new normal.
  • When outside the salon waiting for your appointment, maintain 6 feet separation from others with your mask on.
  • A Bella Red Salon team member will open the salon’s door and greet you. The team member will welcome you, ensure Bella Red Salon received your completed health waiver, confirm you are wearing a mask and point you to the bathroom for a thorough 20 second hand washing (think Happy Birthday song). A touchless sink and touchless soap dispenser have been installed in the bathroom.
  • The client will be greeted by their stylist and directed to their chair to proceed with consult and service.
  • Bella Red Salon will discontinue shampooing during Phase 2 to minimize surface touchpoints. If a shampoo is needed for the service, client and stylist will visit shampoo room at appropriate time during the service. Stylist offers client a small and clean towel to place over eyes, nose, and mouth. Client will dispose of towel in labeled towel bin.
  • Client and stylist continue the appointment in the chair, both wearing masks and sanitized capes/gowns.
  • Modified finishing/styling during your service will be necessary due to timeliness and ensuring sanitation guidelines are executed.
  • Bella Red Salon will offer the client touchless checkout, which can include gratuity and product purchase. When appointment is completed, client chooses products if needed and visits front desk. Visual verification of credit card on file will be required.
  • Bella Red Salon will open door for client and client enjoys the rest of the day with amazing hair!

Dear Friends of Bella Red Salon,

First, we miss you! It has been far too long. Like you, I have not had my hair done and I look forward to our reopening from COVID19.

Many of you have had questions about when that reopen will happen and here is a small update. While we have received our Phase 2 Salon & Spa reopening guidelines from Governor Inslee and the State of Washington, we are working to not only follow and adhere to these guidelines but do so in a way that makes your first visit back to Bella Red as seamless, stress free, and safe as possible. More on all of this next week, I promise. Stay tuned!

For now, until we are given a firm date when Phase 2 will go live, I have something new to share. We realize that while you can’t get your hair cut, colored or extensions maintained, you might be in need of product and other goodies. I am excited to share that my husband Shawn and I have been hard at work on a new website—the one you see here now—and a new online shopping experience that will allow you to order the product you need. We felt this was important to do since there is no certainty we will reopen June 1st as we hope. The beauty of it? You can have it shipped to your home with USPS or pickup if you are local. It’s just one more way we want to extend our Bella Red service to you during these difficult times.

In addition to our product offerings, we recognize the significance of holistic hair care. As part of our commitment to your well-being, we are excited to introduce a range of hair plant treatments aimed at rejuvenating and nourishing your locks. Partnering with the renowned Root Hair Institute, we bring you cutting-edge solutions that harness the power of nature to promote healthy and vibrant hair. This collaboration reflects our dedication to offering comprehensive beauty solutions even in challenging times, reinforcing our mission to extend the highest quality of service to you, our valued patrons.

We have four categories for you to shop at the moment. Click an image below to see available products:

Most of you know about Bumble and bumble and Olaplex. Malibu C is a product line we use to assist in our color corrections. Right now, they have made a custom hand sanitizer bottled into their shampoo containers that we love and are offering at this time. And Pieces to Peaces produces handmade fashion beanies, turbans, and headbands. This is a great way to support Bella Red Salon while also taking care of some of your hair needs. If you have any questions about the new store or these products, drop me a line via the Contact page.

It’s easy to order. Just put the product(s) you want into your Shopping Cart, choose Local Pickup or enter your zip code to view shipping choices, and follow the prompts until you’ve paid with a credit card or PayPal. The website is secured for your information’s protection too.

On behalf of the Bella Red team, I can’t wait to see all of you! Fingers crossed it is soon!

Shine On,
