We unfortunately are unable to service any clients who are not residents of the state of Vermont unless they have followed through with the prescribed quarantine period.

Hair salons & barber shops may reopen subject to the mandatory health and safety requirements listed above, and:
Operations are limited to 25% (twenty-five percent) of approved fire safety occupancy; or 1 customer per 200 square feet; or 10 total customers and staff combined, whichever is greater.
Additionally, operators should separate customers in chairs, to achieve physical distancing of 6 feet for any activity that will occur for more than a few moments (e.g. a retail transaction).
