Summer has officially arrived! Here at Florence Roby, we couldn’t be happier that the sun has finally come out to play. But we’re also aware that at this time of year, beauty salons, hairdressers and spas can get a little overheated! To help combat this, we’ve come up with some top tips to help keep your beauty business cool and comfortable during the warmer months.
Invest in air conditioning
You won’t need to use air conditioning all year round in Britain, but when you need it, you really do need it! Installing permanent air conditioning is probably a bit unnecessary, but opting for a portable air conditioning unit can be a great alternative. With decent models starting at around £300, it’s a worthy investment that is beneficial for both your staff and customers.
Put up some curtains or blinds
Blocking the sun is one of the best ways to keep the heat at bay. If you’re worried that covering your windows will make customers think that you’re closed, then half-open blinds or just having the curtains closed during the hottest point of the day could be an option. In our opinion, putting up a lovely pair of curtains is a great way of sprucing up your salon, so it's a win-win!
Keep everyone hydrated
Hydration is key when the temperatures are high. You should always offer a cold drink to your customers, and try and encourage your co-workers to keep hydrated too! Keeping jugs of water around the salon would definitely be appreciated, especially on a particularly hot day. You could even go the extra mile and make some homemade lemonade!
Wear a lightweight uniform
Whilst all of our uniforms are made from a breathable material, we have recently launched a special crepe fabric range that’s designed to help you stay cool. Lightweight and high-quality, the material is also incredibly easy to care for. Check out the gorgeous Grado and Tropea Tunics, which both look fab when paired with the Crepe Parallel Trousers.
