It’s almost time!! As we approach our reopening day, we’d like to share our newest guidelines with you so you are prepared prior to your next scheduled service with us.
NEW OPERATING STANDARDS:
BEFORE ARRIVAL: We ask that all clients come in with hair that has been washed within 24 hours of your scheduled service
CHECKING IN: Due to government restrictions we currently can not have a waiting room and ask that you please wait outside, or in your car. We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early for your scheduled appointment. When you arrive, you may call the salon, text your stylist, or speak to our support staff at the door to notify us that you are here. All clients will be asked to fill out a questionnaire before entering the building to verify that they are symptom free. Once you are called in, you will be directed to the correct suite by your stylist or by our support staff.
FEELING ILL: Upon arrival we reserve the right to take your temperature before entering the salon. If you are experiencing any symptoms such as a fever, cough or sore throat etc, we are happy to reschedule your appointment for a time when you’re feeling well.
FACE MASKS: Face masks are required for all staff and clients. All masks must be fitted around the ears as they must be worn during all services. No bandanas or cloth coverings tied behind the head will be allowed. If you have forgotten your mask, we will have limited masks available for purchase. Supply is not guaranteed.
HAND SANITIZER: Hand sanitizer will be available at every station, in the restroom and at the reception desk. We ask that you use the sanitizer upon entry to the building.
CLEANING AND SANITIZING: All of our stylists have received training in proper sanitation and disinfection practices and procedures. Your stylist is required to sanitize and disinfect all work stations and tools between appointments per state and local guidelines. Please be patient as they take the time to thoroughly clean.
LIMITED GUESTS: Only the client receiving a service is permitted in the salon. Individuals without appointments (especially children) are not allowed in the salon unless they have a service scheduled with another stylist.
ADDITIONAL AMENITIES: For the foreseeable future, we will not be offering beverages, snacks or reading material.
PERSONAL ITEMS: Please limit the items you carry into the salon to your wallet, phone and keys.
RETAIL: Retail will still be available for sale, but please do not touch. Your stylist, or one of our receptionists can assist you.
TRANSACTIONS: Our POS terminal /touch pad is disinfected frequently, but if you prefer, you may read your card information so that your stylist or the receptionist can manually enter your payment for you.
PRICING: Due to high product demand, prices may slightly increase.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: It goes without saying that we have missed you! But for the time being we cannot hug or shake hands. Please know that we are overjoyed to have you back!
We have taken on an additional space in the building to allow all of our stylists to get back to work at the same time, while still following all government mandated protocol. If your stylist is working in our temporary space, please follow Fila Way past the first parking lot entrance to the next entrance which will take you to the back of the building. Our suite number is 205 A&B.
We know these are unusual times but they are temporary. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we work to be both accommodating and conscientious of you and our team. ... See MoreSee Less
You are AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to see you and share ‘Air Hugs’ 😘
So happy for you 🙂
Thanks so much for everything you have done to get us back to the salon. You all are truly wonderful! Cannot wait to get back to see Lisa Barge
Thank you for everything that you all are doing! ❤️I love Studio 360.🥰😷
Thank you so much for all of your thorough preplanning for us to return safely! See you on Tuesday!🎉💥
Thank you so much for all you have done to keep your customers & your staff safe. Just let me know when you are ready. Xo
Thanks Kim, Amanda and everyone! Can’t wait! 😷🥰
I am so impressed with what you’ve done to keep us all safe! So looking forward to coming in!
Oh Lawd. Thank you. Can’t wait.
Great news!! I didn’t have an appointment scheduled before the shut down- I called last week and left a message to schedule (whenever Skye Is available). Was this the best way to start the scheduling process?
Thank you for all you do 😘 I’m happy to be coming back!
I’m excited to be able to continue to support you! See you soon!
You guys are really on top of it. Thank you!
Congratulations on all the great work you did to serve os safely! Looking forward to getting my appointment with JR.
Looking forward to hearing from you to reschedule my appointment! This is all great news.
Woo Hoo!! We don't know about you, but we can hardly wait to see you!!!
We officially reopen our doors Tuesday May 26th & we can hardly wait to see you!!!
As always, our clients' safety, hair, & happiness are our biggest priorities.
We are currently finalizing the rescheduling of all of our loyal clients so that we can give each of you the TLC that you deserve.
If you had an appointment on the books that was rescheduled in the past 8 weeks, please know that if we have not contacted you yet, that you are on our list and that we will be reaching out to you shortly to get you back on the books.
If you were not on the books in the last 8 weeks, give us a call and we will get you on the list and sort out an appointment for you right away.
We will be following up with a post and emails detailing our reopening standards and let you know what is expected and how it will all work.
Thank you for your support during this time and trusting us with services that make you feel your best!!!
TOWSON, Md. (WBFF) - Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski is announcing a limited reopening. Effective at 5 p. m. Friday, retail stores will be allowed to open for curbside pick-up, but no in-person retail will be allowed, except for the essential stores that are already open. Religious insti...
I miss you! And I have sent emails to both Johnny Olszewski and Wade Kach on this issue. We need to open Baltimore County up and learn to LIVE with this. Bless you all!
I am sad, but I understand. I, personally, am ok but worry about all your employees who are not working. I keep all of you in my prayers.
Thinking about all of you and hoping to see you soon ❤️!
So in the meantime… What can we do to help support your salon Until it does open!?
Carroll and Harford counties are open. Satelite location possibilities? Just a thought. I miss you Jen Marie!
I want all of you to be safe as well. I will look forward to seeing you when you can reopen. It may take Kim just a bit longer (cause I'll have 3x as much hair 😁) but I will be 3x as happy to see you !
Miss all of you!!
So disappointed in our county executive’s decision ! Simply ridiculous
Johnny O is an idiot.
Hope to see you all soon.
Thanks for the updates!! I can’t wait to schedule with Skye again!
I am so hoping you can open! Definitely need to get in there and get my haircut and colored by Alise!
OMG.. I’m so ready..🤦🏻♀️
🙏🙏🙏🙏you can open .... this girl needs Diana to cut her hair
Johnny O and his group are a bunch of idiots. He can’t even fix potholes on York Rd. He is a waste.
This is so maddening
I have become a hat person. 🤷♀️
I had to get my hair cut in a dark alley!!! I couldn’t wait!!!!
I guess Johnny O has a better idea 🤬
Johnny O has a facebook page. You can send messages to him on it. I just wrote him a message and suggest everyone that wants Baltimore County to open to flood his page with your sentiments. Hopefully he makes the right decision and let's us open.
Think you need to play the “Hereford” zone card ...
Better to be safe than sorry. I love looking great but my health and the health of others is so much more important.
Studio 360 has temporarily acquired an additional 3,300SF of space at 10 Fila way just up the stairs from our current location!
We want to see each and every one of our beloved clients as soon as possible. So we came up with a success plan in order to service the maximum amount of clients safely. There are 10 rooms which will be isolated from the general space so we can maximize social distancing. We will keep the original location open in tandem so we can run full shifts.
We wanted our stylist to be able to get back to work with the best opportunities and to feel confident about leaving their unemployment checks in the rear-view mirror.
We have also all obtained our barbicide sanitation certifications.
The upstairs location has it's own parking in the back and is handicap accessible.
Details are still pending. It won't be business as usual, but we will find the best way possible to be here to serve you with excellence for many many years to come.
We stumbled upon this a few days ago, but the page owner did not know who originally wrote it. The content immediately resonated with us...pass it along.
WE ARE NOT IN THE SAME BOAT ... I heard that we are all in the same boat, but it's not like that. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice versa.
For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis.
For some that live alone they're facing endless loneliness. While for others it is peace, rest & time with their mother, father, sons & daughters.
With the $600 weekly increase in unemployment some are bringing in more money to their households than they were working. Others are working more hours for less money due to pay cuts or loss in sales.
Some families of 4 just received $3400 from the stimulus while other families of 4 saw $0.
Some were concerned about getting a certain candy for Easter while others were concerned if there would be enough bread, milk and eggs for the weekend.
Some want to go back to work because they don't qualify for unemployment and are running out of money. Others want to kill those who break the quarantine.
Some are home spending 2-3 hours/day helping their child with online schooling while others are spending 2-3 hours/day to educate their children on top of a 10-12 hour workday.
Some have experienced the near death of the virus, some have already lost someone from it and some are not sure if their loved ones are going to make it. Others don't believe this is a big deal.
Some have faith in God and expect miracles during this 2020. Others say the worst is yet to come.
So, friends, we are not in the same boat. We are going through a time when our perceptions and needs are completely different.
Each of us will emerge, in our own way, from this storm. It is very important to see beyond what is seen at first glance. Not just looking, actually seeing.
We are all on different ships during this storm experiencing a very different journey.
We wish we could open our doors today, but with the current and restrictive guidelines, we cannot.
The guidelines state... - only one client in the salon at a time - Must be an essential employee - Must be by appointment - Must have written documentation from employer to get an appointment and that documentation must contain guidelines on what type of hairstyle is acceptable for the type of work they perform. - Must keep written records of each client along with their documentation on file - If by chance one of the clients contracts Covid-19 at any time after the visit, the salon must contact all of the clients who visited afterwards and inform them of the infection.
Unfortunately we would incur a loss to pull this off. And we would be asking our staff to come off of emergency unemployment in order to perform the service. It could also jeopardize the forgivable amount of the Payroll Protection Loan we are currently having processed.
Once Gov Hogan gives a clear date of return, we will load up the schedule and get the girls in, ready to serve.
Trust me...Every single girl in the salon would rather be working.
We miss you all dearly!

This direction isn’t worth the time for any salon to reopen based on restrictions and oversight
.... hang tough all and stay safe 💗
Thank you for the info. Hope everyone is making out okay. See you all when you get open.
Hogan is an idiot.
This will be me coming in for my appointment after the shutdown.
Wise decision!!!!! We love your team and stand by you all staying safe! <3
Great job Amanda. I saw it twice.
I hope all the ladies and there families are staying safe and healthy. Just when things open up and show up looking I like I used a flowbee try not to laugh to much at me. 😂
Best wishes and stay safe.

I’m going to buy a violin with my hair so long!
You are amazing! Can’t wait to see you! 💇♀️💇♀️💇♀️
You are certainly making the right decision!! Stay safe and we will all love to see you when it is truly safe and economical for your business. 😘
Very sensible decision, Amanda. I know everyone is in a hurry to get back to work (and to get their hair cut and colored) but this just doesn’t make sense right now.
I don’t suppose you could mail us some touch up paint for the interim??? 😬
Thank you so much for the clear communication.
Well said from a fellow MD salon employee!
GO Amanda!!! It makes no sense right now for the girls to go off of unemployment just to serve 4-5 patrons a day, even less. God knows my mother could use some color and a trim right now but THIS was a smart move by a GREAT business owner. Stay healthy 💕💕
Amanda you are a good businesswoman, but most importantly a good person making thoughtful decisions. You will have your work “cut” out for you when you reopen!!
Sounds like you made a wise decision. My heart goes out to you and all the staff. This can't be easy for you. I am waiting eagerly for you to get a reasonable "all clear" to reopen. In the interim stay safe. Say HI to my Lauren for me😊
You made the right decision Amanda. Make sure it's safe for you and the employees along with the customers👍😃❤️😷
We have had multiple calls from clients who have resorted to coloring their own hair and ended up with disastrous results.
Store bought color will destroy the integrity of your hair, have harsh chemicals, and can be very costly to fix the damage.
Here are some simple tips to help camouflage your roots.

Bought a box. Been sitting on the shelf for 3 weeks now. Scared to death to touch it. It’s reassuring to know it’s there. Just in case 😉
At this point the only person who sees me is my husband and he doesn’t care about my gray roots. I’m letting this go until it’s safe to come back and let Amanda Westra handle it for me 😁
Ha! None of these “tricks” will work for me. A hat is the only cover up for me! #onlymyhairdresserknowsforsure
Dying!!! Need my JenMarie. Drive thru hair color???
Eh, I'm wearing my gray as a social distancing badge of honor right now. Mandy will fix it when we can go back. 😁
I heard some salons are sending customers hair color kits mixed specifically for them. A friend just ordered from her salon for $30. Just a thought.
These tips won't work for me either. We're doing several work call videos each week, any thoughts on ordering color online, pre-paying and curbside pickup? Google hangout chats and Zoom conferencing is the new "working office"...
