A Mission of Legacy at Odessa Renia Salon

To our Amazing Guests,

I would like to thank you for your patience and support during this difficult time. After 10 weeks of our mandatory COVID-19 “Safer at Home” closure, Odessa Renia Salon is ready to open for business! This past Friday, our state approved hair salons to reopen with restrictions citing a new health order called “ Safer at Work and in the Community.” This means we can start accepting clients again, while establishing a new strict protocol. 

Today, I am happy to share with you the Health and Safety Standards that will be implemented at the salon. These new procedures will be in place until it is safe for us to relax them. I hope this document can act as a resource, so that you may feel comfortable while getting your hair care needs met at Odessa Renia Salon. I hope that we will continue to earn your loyalty and trust by providing same great service you remember.

A New Legacy at Odessa Renia Salon

I believe that taking care of our communities is one of the first steps we need to take toward recovery — if this crisis has taught us anything, it is that we are all connected and that the success of one is intrinsically linked to the success of all. The mission at Odessa Renia Salon has always been to provide an environment where young stylists can work and receive a quality education in hair care standards, entrepreneurship and client relations. It is important to me that we continue to operate as a community and support one another as we navigate these uncharted waters.

Over the coming months, I will be looking to invite a new apprentice into the salon for mentoring and education. I’ve always believed in the importance of paying it forward and building a legacy of knowledge for young Black stylists. You see, when I was entering this field as a young stylist, I myself had someone who helped make my dream a reality. My promise to pay it forward has been the driving force behind Odessa Renia Salon. 

With that being said, let’s move on and get you scheduled! 

Booking Procedure

Odessa Renia Salon will still be booking through Vagaro. Because of social distancing, availability will be limited. I will be seeing two-three clients per day, Tuesday through Saturday. If you’re having trouble booking, shoot me an email and we’ll try to work it out!

  • A credit card will be needed the time of booking to hold your appointment. You will NOT be charged during booking. Payment for services will be made at the salon— all major credits cards are accepted. Please no cash at this time.

  • After booking on Vagaro, please complete a COVID-19 waiver (see below).

Confirming your appointment

  • You will be contacted 24 hours prior to your appointment to confirm. If you do not confirm your appointment, you will lose that appointment and be charged a 50% cancellation fee based on the total cost of your service.

The New Salon Protocol

  • Upon arrival for your appointment, please wait in your car until you receive a text message. Only one client at a time will be accommodated. Between appointments, we’re thoroughly sanitizing the salon for you.

  • Refrain from bringing guests to the salon during this time. Only clients receiving a service will be allowed in the salon.

  • All guests are asked to bring minimal belongings into your appointment— wallet/small purse and phone. Please lock the rest of your belongings in the trunk of your vehicle.

  • A cloth face covering is required during all services. Make sure you mask/face covering has bands that wrap around the ears and not the entire head. No mask, no service.

  • Your temperature will be taken with a contactless thermometer before entering the salon. Clients a temperature reading above 100.4’F, will be rescheduled. 

  • Clients will be asked to wash hands before starting their service and utilize hand sanitizer directly after.

Cancellation/No-Show Policy

I will not be penalizing clients for any last-minute cancellations due to illness. I do ask that you cancel as soon as you are aware you feel unwell and may be symptomatic, so that I can adjust the schedule accordingly. I am trying my best to get every client who needs a service an appointment. Time is as valuable, so please respect that appointment spaces are limited.

Let’s Do This!

I hope to get back to a new normal soon. In the meantime, these protocols will continue to be adjusted as the new guidelines and safety precautions are released by the local government and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). I look forward to seeing you at the salon soon and want to thank you, sincerely, for your continued support.
