Hair and Beauty Salons in London – Tier Four

Hair and Beauty Salons In London Move To Tier Four

Tougher rules for London mean hair and beauty salons will be closed for now.

On Saturday 19th December 2020, as a big and sudden change for Christmas, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced that London and other areas in southern England which were currently under the Tier 3 level of coronavirus restrictions, will move to an even stricter new Tier 4.

Mr Johnson also said that a planned five-day easing of socialising rules that would allow up to three households to meet in “Christmas bubbles” will be cancelled for Tier 4 areas.

We know this means Hairdressers and barbers, beauty salons, tattoo parlours, nail salons, spas and beauty services, massage parlours and tanning salons all need to close for the time being until there is a change from Tier 4 back to Tier 3 or lower.

This is a big disappointment for hair salons and beauty salons in London and in all the affected Tier 4 restricted areas and we empathise with all our clients that will be affected by this.

Hopefully this will be just a temporary situation until the picture improves.

Here at Rose Hadley London, we are still open and working, currently from home while Tier 4 restrictions remain, so you can contact us on the following number after the Christmas and New Year holiday.

Rose Hadley Contact Number for November: 07790 488425

We can still receive CVs and set up online interviews via Zoom with candidates and employers, so that you are ready when the Christmas and New Year holiday ends and Tier 4 is lifted.

Here at Rose Hadley London, we can still be contacted and are available to help you with your New Year hair and beauty recruitment needs and hair and beauty job opportunities, especially during these uncertain times if you want to chat about your requirements.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year 2021.

Hair Jobs and Beauty Salons – Tier Three Update

Hair and Beauty Salons In London Move To Tier Three

Tougher rules for London, but hair and beauty salons will remain open.

The Health Secretary has announced that London will enter the strictest category for Covid 19 restrictions, Tier 3 from 16th December 2020.

Why Can Hair Salons and Beauty Salons Remain Open?

Hair and beauty salons can stay open because they come under the ‘personal care’ sector in the Government’s Covid Winter Plan, so are allowed to operate in Tier 3.

As we know the hair and beauty industry is popular with users and essential for the physical and mental wellbeing of everyone in London and the UK.

Here’s a full list of close contact personal care services that will remain open, even while London is in Tier 3 category for Covid 19 restrictions:-

  • Hairdressers and barbers
  • Beauty salons
  • Tattoo parlours
  • Nail salons
  • Spas and beauty services
  • Massage parlours
  • Tanning salons

Salon workers and clientele should continue to take all necessary precautions when visiting hair and beauty salons, including wearing a face covering, washing hands regularly, and social distancing where possible.

Time in a salon is an important treat in terms of looking good, but also in terms of relaxation and “me time”.

So after the return to opening of salons in July, initially for hairdressers, then later in the month for beauty salons, we hoped it would be plain sailing back to more like normality, albeit with PPE and hand sanitisers in place.

In November, we had a second lockdown, but we had measures we can take and procedures we can follow to minimise risks, which has helped our industry demonstrate why salons should remain open.

We are delighted for the hair and beauty industry that this new Tier three category for London, means that salons can remain open, keeping their valuable services available to clients.

Here at Rose Hadley London, we are still open and working, currently from home while Tier 3 restrictions remain, so you can contact us on the following number after the Christmas and New Year holiday.

Rose Hadley Contact Number for November: 07790 488425

We can still receive CVs and set up online interviews via Zoom with candidates and employers, so that you are ready when the Christmas and New Year holiday ends.

Here at Rose Hadley London, we can still be contacted and are available to help you with your New Year hair and beauty recruitment needs and hair and beauty job opportunities, especially during this time.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2021.

Looking forward to speaking to you soon.

Hair Jobs and Beauty Salons – Second Lockdown Update

Hair and Beauty Salon Second Lockdown Latest

As we know the hair and beauty industry is popular with users and essential for the physical and mental wellbeing of everyone in London and the UK.

There is more to a haircut or a nail manicure than meets the eye for sure.

Time in a salon is an important treat in terms of looking good, but also in terms of relaxation and “me time”.

So after the return to opening of salons in July, initially for hairdressers, then later in the month for beauty salons, we hoped it would be plain sailing back to more like normality, albeit with PPE and hand sanitisers in place.

In November, we have second lockdown, with this time more hope that it will be a shorter one, with more confidence that we know what we are dealing with in terms of measures we can take and procedures we can follow to minimise risks.

We wish you all well and look forward to speaking to you.

Hair Jobs and Beauty Salon Survey In August 2020

Hair and Beauty Salon Survey

Time for a haircut! Or even a nail manicure.

We are a couple of months into the reopening of the hair salons and we thought it was a good time to conduct our “Back To Salon” survey to find out what has been going on in hair and beauty salons in London.

The hair and beauty industry has been saying hello to it’s clients again, starting in July for hair salons and then later in August for beauty salons.

Needless to say, for many salons, it’s been wonderful to be able to offer haircuts and hair styling again, albeit with certain measures in place, such gloves, PPE face masks and face shields. However, due to the unique situation that we have all faced, some important questions remain in the in hair and beauty industry and this is what we are exploring in our salon survey.

Are We Ready?

The industry firmly puts out the welcome mat.

Owners and hairdressers, owners and beauty therapists are all back in the salons and have prepared the salons as per the Government guidelines.

Face masks are now a requirement for all staff and clients whilst in a hairdressing salon and barbers.

However, face screens are more convenient for hair and beauty staff. Clear plastic face visors provide a barrier between your face and your client. For this reason, they have been named as an official requirement for hairdressers and barbers who cannot maintain the full 2 metre social distance during any treatment or service.

Are Clients Ready To Get Back Into The Salons?

There have been an explosion of home haircuts and shaved heads and beards over the last few months. Some of that has not been pretty.

With a return to office work increasingly back on the on the horizon, a return to tidier hairstyles and nail and eyebrows could be back in our minds.

Are Clients Following The PPE Guidlines When Entering Your Hair and Beauty Salon?

Our survey covers three areas:

  1. PPE Measures

What PPE measures have you put in place?

2) Salon Footfall

Has salon footfall recovered? If not, what is the % footfall versus last year?

3) Salon Staffing

Are you staff furloughed?

Are your staff self employed?

What % of each has now returned to work?

4) Client Adherence To Risk Reduction

What % of clients wear a face mask?

What % of clients use hand sanitiser?

What % of clients adhere to the no or minimal chatting rule?

We look forward to sharing our survey results with you soon.

From Behind Our Hair and Beauty Jobs Desk In June

Hair and Beauty Jobs Desk Latest

June 1 2020.

The slumbering beast begins to awaken! This is what comes to mind as I consider a snap shot of the recruitment activity of the hair and beauty industry last week.

The industry begins to emerge from its enforced hibernation with a quiet, considered zeal, peppered with trepidation and questioning ‘will it ever be the same again’?

The availability of hair and beauty temps and colour technicians were questions very much on commercial hair and beauty salon owners check lists last week; good news for our existing team of temp talent and for hairdressers and beauty therapists finding themselves in need or considering a summer of flexi shifts. We expect to be in a position to start increasing our temp numbers as the summer progresses.

Many laser technicians were also in touch too wanting to discuss protocols and personal protective recommendations.

A small handful of salons advised they will not be reopening. This is sad news indeed. And there were calls from beauty therapists and hairdressers finding themselves without work when the industry reopens due to the restrictions required for social distancing in the workplace resulting in cut backs.

So a mixed week as we reach day 80.

June promises much. We might even get to reopen earlier than expected. Let’s see.

Be well, stay safe.

FROM BEHIND THE HAIR AND BEAUTY DESK
MAY 25TH 2020.

Hi Hair and Beauty world!

This week has offered less activity in the domain of hair and beauty recruitment but there have been some strong, positive interactions with hair and beauty salon owners. The general overview from these conversations –

  • Salon owners feel confident the footfall will return and customer retention will be high.
  • The salon owners are taking practical, pragmatic measures within the work space to ensure the safety of their staff and their clients.
  • They are in regular contact with their hair and beauty clients and their hair and beauty staff.
  • They are constantly monitoring government and industry guidelines.
  • Longer hours, split shifts, opening 7 days per week are options being considered.
  • They are taking active measures to prepare their hair and beauty team for reopening.
  • Most plan to open hair and beauty columns around mid June for a July 4 start.
    The overwhelming sense I am left with after each and every conversation with a hair and beauty salon owner, barbershop owner or medi clinic owner is one of responsible action and staff/ client safety being of absolute paramount importance, despite the financial pressure this crisis has imposed on them.
    Hair styling, hair cutting, hair colouring services and every beauty service will be as good as pre lockdown for sure and the feel of the experience may be dramatically different but I can say with confidence, this industry is stepping up!

Be well, stay safe.

Hi Hair and Beauty world!

We’ve got maybe 6/7 weeks before the finger is taken off the pause button and I thought I’d share a weekly post leading up to ‘operation restart’.

Three weeks ago, I was super worried about what kind of hair and beauty recruitment business I would be opening back up, but last week saw a shift in energy and the signs from behind the desk are looking increasingly positive on a daily basis and I wanted to share, offer a reality check and reach out with some encouraging news. Don’t get me wrong, there are challenges ahead, but the early signs are looking good.

A recent survey found that a hair salon appointment was among the top three things people are most excited about when the pause button is released.  This is reassuring indeed (did you see the reports evidencing the queues for haircuts in New Zealand?)!

Last week I received many calls from hair salon owners, all asking similar questions –

  1. Will you be there for us when we reopen?

Answer: 100% yes!

2. Will you have enough hair/beauty temps to support us?

Answer: 100% yes!

  There were also calls from hair and beauty talent, again, all asking similar questions –

  1. We know the industry is closed right now, but can we register a CV in anticipation of the restart.

Answer: 100% yes you can!

2. How do you think the hair and beauty job market will be? Will there be temp jobs?

Answer:  The permanent job market may take a while to get going but we expect there to be a demand for hair and beauty temps as hair and beauty salons open their doors and the industry steps on the path to recovery.

For sure the hair and beauty salon experience will be different for both clients and staff, but even with a 6/7 week lead time, energy and momentum is beginning to brew.

Next update will be on May 25. Be well, stay safe .

Latest Industry Trends In The Hair Temp Jobs Market London

Industry Background For Hairdressers In London

Hair temping has always been popular for qualified hairdressers in big Cities like London and this has continued for more than 25 years according to leading recruitment industry experts.

Why Are Hair Temps Popular In London

Reason: Temping offers hairdressers the perfect balance between finding regular hairdressing work, doing the thing you love in an exiting location, along with the flexibility to build a work schedule around your desired lifestyle choices.

Qualified staff for Temping is usually required, either to cover busy weekends, sickness, maternity or the busy  holiday season, working for hair salons in London.

Qualifications Required For Hair Temping

The minimum qualification to become a fully qualified hairdresser is a level 2 or level 3 qualification in hairdressing.

You could start as an assistant in a hairdressing salon and study for qualifications on the job, or do a full-time or part-time college course while looking for work.

You could also train with a private hairdressing school.

You will need at least 2 years full-time salon experience to qualify for temp work.

Latest Industry Trends For Hair Temping In London

More temps, please!!

There are some noticeable trends going on in the hair temp industry in London that are worth mentioning as they show a marked change from what was the norm over the last few years.

Let me explain. The latest research shows the following trends:

  • The usual temp season of March 1st to 30th September 2017 for hairdressers started earlier in February and is still not stopped in November.
  • In fact the demand for hair temps is continuing amongst hair salons
  • Overall the number of temp job vacancies has grown significantly over 2017 as well as the temp season appearing not to follow the traditional seasonal trend of previous years
  • There is a skills shortage in London resulting in more demand for hairdressing temps than there are candidates to cover these temp job opportunities

Why Is The Demand So High For Hair Temps In London Right Now?

Rose Hadley London in October 2017 said in a recent interview that “After 25 years of business in the UK, covering London, this year 2017 has been exceptional, defying all the usual seasonal trends and demand is huge for qualified Hair temps in London”.

  • The reason may be explained by the uncertainty caused by Brexit, the vote in favour of the UK leaving the European Union
  • Another reason could be the meteoric rise of the hair industry with many hairdressers upskilling to Level 4
  • In previous years Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans were driving the market too
  • Either way, Temps are in big demand with lots of temp jobs in London available, it is fair to say that Temps are driving the employment market and therefore also driving the recruitment industry growth for hairdressing temps

Conclusions

  • Demand for hair temps in London is up significantly and growing rapidly!
  • There is certainly a demand for permanent hairdressers, companies are however having to embrace hair temps as a vital resource now far more so than in recent years.
  • It appears the impact of Brexit and the uncertainty it brings is impacting on the hair jobs market to push up demand for temps.
