Safe­guard your sa­lon clients and staff with these tips:

• Al­ways ster­il­ize in­stru­ments be­tween clients. This in­cludes brushes, combs, scis­sors and ra­zors. The ster­il­iz­ing so­lu­tion should be changed regularly and the con­tainer shouldn't be over­crowded with combs and brushes.

• Clean sinks regularly – and in­clude a clean

towel to put un­der the client's neck.

• Hair sa­lons tend to smell like chem­i­cal fac­to­ries with plenty of hair colour­ing or straight­en­ing in­gre­di­ents at work. These pun­gent fumes can make peo­ple feel sick – and is a sign that the sa­lon is poorly ven­ti­lated. Al­ways make sure you have proper ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem.

If your sa­lon uses robes and tow­els, make sure these are washed regularly. Lice can be­come an is­sue and can live on brushes, tow­els and robes.

• Have stylists use a method wherein they won't be able to stick fin­gers di­rectly into styling jars and con­tain­ers – this can breed bac­te­ria and be trans­ferred to skin.

• En­sure stylists do not have cuts and sores on

their hands.
