100 days of lockdown in SA! I actually made it without visiting a hairdresser, nail bar or beauty salon! But enough already! Living and feeling like a cooped up, ungroomed 50 year old is not good for me physically and mentally! So I made an appointment at my favourite beauty salon as I really just needed to feel human again….
In making this decision, at a time when the numbers of infection are rising rapidly in Johannesburg, I needed to assess the risks like the good conservative accountant I am. I needed to choose a place that I knew would be fastidious about hygiene and passionate about looking after it’s staff and clients. A place where the treatments are amazing and the staff warm and friendly – I needed to actually enjoy the experience without being worried about if I would be exposed to Corona!
Armed with my water (never leave home without it!), cell phone, 3-layered mask, small bottle of SafeSpray and mini-humidifier I set out on Saturday morning bright and early! I was so excited to be pampered.
I was not disappointed! Toast &Co is simply one of the best salons in Johannesburg and I absolutely loved my QMS Hydro facial and hour long pedi and mani. To avoid seeing other clients (for obvious reasons but also due to personal lack of maintenance), I opted to get all my treatments done in a single treatment room and had my mini-humidifier plugged in to add an extra layer of protection. I used my SafeSpray 100ml bottle upon entrance, sprayed it on the bed before I lay down and used it on my clothing, face and hands after I departed with beautiful bright pink toenails, a polished glowing face and lovely nude nails!
I can comfortably say I felt safe and protected at all times during my outing knowing that I had assessed the risks and mitigated them as best I could by the measures I had taken!
I have even booked a hairdresser appointment for next week!
