COVID-19 Safe PLAN

HAIR & MAKEUP

Due to the ongoing changes and unknowns with COVID-19, conditions within these terms may need to change due to changes in the law or recommendations from state or federal health professionals.

PRE EVENT:

  • No in person meetings to be held. All communication to take place via email or phone.
  • All clients to be emailed at least 48 hours prior to event outlining working conditions required by artists (see below).
  • All clients must be accounted for prior to the day to ensure artists will have enough equipment for each client/talent (i.e brushes).

ON THE DAY:

  • Full name and phone number of every client on the day will be required for contact tracing. This will be kept in an excel spreadsheet.
  • We need to maintain 4 square metres per person strictly on the day.
  • A large area will need to be allocated for hair and makeup. This may mean reserving the dining table for hair and makeup and food and drinks will need to be set up and consumed in another room.
  • For hotel preparation, two rooms may need to be booked- one for the hairstylist and one for the makeup artist.
  • Only the one person who is getting their hair or makeup done can be within the hair and makeup space at any one time.
  • Only the artist can touch products and equipment at the hair and makeup station.
  • Artist to wear a mask whilst working.
  • Artist to wear gloves at all times, changing into a new pair between each client.
  • The artist and each client will need to thoroughly wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap then rinse before getting into the makeup chair. The artist will also do this between each client.
  • Talking in the makeup chair will need to be kept to a minimum to reduce the spread of droplets with the face mask is to be worn at all times except when doing lips and lower face.
  • Clients must not place personal items (phone, keys and coffee/tea cups or food) in the designated hair and makeup area. 

  • 10 minutes will be taken between each client to sanitise the work bench with disinfectant, remove and place used brushes into a labelled bag and set up with cleaned tools and clean brushes for the next client.
  • Artists & Talents must have access to running water. 

  • Disposables will always be used when needed and products will be decanted from their original packaging accordingly.
  • Sneezing or coughing must be done into the elbow or a tissue followed by immediate discarding of the tissue and thorough hand washing. 

  • If a talent/client arrives on set/location unwell, the hair & makeup artist reserves the right to refuse service for their own safety and wellbeing.
