When you arrive for your Appointment at Fox Adder Hair Design
When you Arrive, we will check you in for your appointment to include asking a handful of COVID-19 survey questions. The answers will be recorded and held private. We will also ask that you allow us to take your Temperature before entering the Salon. We use a Contactless Digital Thermometer to take your temperature. You may pre-screen yourself, but we will still need to ask the questions and take your temperature. If you pre-screen yourself and can answer “yes” to any of the questions sent in your confirmation, we ask that you please give us a call at 360-9846187 to reschedule for no less than 14 days later. Please wait in your car until one of our staff comes to your vehicle to escort you to your Stylist’s station. If you feel you have waited more than 20 minutes past your appointment time, please call us again.
You will be reminded to wear your Mask in the salon and to refrain from touching anything as you move through the salon. A 3-layer Mask or other CDC approved Mask is required in the Salon. Guest’s now have the option to wear a mask during a service. If you do not have one of this type, we are happy to provide one to you. Guests and Staff are REQUIRED to wear Masks for the duration of all appointments unless wearing one will inhibit the ability for the Stylist to perform a service or a portion of the service OR if the guest has indicated that to wear a mask for the duration of their service WILL pose a severe health risk (we will ask the guest to sign a waiver of refusal for our records.) Most of the time we are able to have the Mask manipulated without removal as with earpieces.
Upon making your appointment, you will receive an email/text confirming your appointment if outside 72-hour window of the appointment. In your confirmation, you will receive a brief outline, much like the statements here, to remind and encourage guests of our policies.
Spacing out appointments – We are building additional time into our services to accommodate sanitation requirements. If for any reason an appointment is set too close to another appointment, we reserve the right to adjust the appointment time and possibly the stylist you have chosen. We will contact guests directly to confirm these adjustments whenever possible.
Reception and Waiting Area – We will not be allowing guests, friends, family or children to wait inside the Salon before/during an appointment. If Accommodations are required, please inform us at the time of the appointment. Assistants to those requiring Accommodations may enter the salon with the guest. Children under the age of 12 MUST be under direct supervision of an adult at all times. must leave until the guests’ service is complete. An Assistant must also wear a Mask at all times when inside the premises.
Prioritizing services – On occasion certain services may have to be adjusted due to restrictions placed on us for social distancing or service type. If an appointment will be affected, we will contact Guests directly to con rm the changes whenever possible.
Allotting certain hours for elderly guests – We are working towards designation of 1-2 days a week that will be dedicated to senior citizens and guests requiring accommodations.
Adjustments to our services have become necessary. We would love to be able to provide and do all the inclusive/add-on services we were able to do before, but until our Salon reaches Phases 3 and 4, these services are being deferred, modified, or substituted:
First Time Guests receiving Chemical Services: ALL new chemical services guests will need to sign our chemical waiver form. The client card will be notated immediately. Before and after photos will be taken, and the after photo entered into the client card. This policy is designed to give us a reference point, a basis for future services and ongoing updates to services and is also for our portfolio.
**Children/Teens under the age of 12 who wish to have chemical service must have an adult present and a chemical waiver signed or on file. We generally do not provide chemical services to children under 12, but exceptions have been made depending on the requested service. People between 12-18 will also need a Chemical service waiver signed and on-file by a parent/guardian.
Summary of September 18, 2020, changes to Safe Start Washington: For any service that necessitates removal of customer’s face covering (i.e., facial or beard trimming), the following apply:
The service provider must wear a NIOSH approved N95 face covering. If N95s are in short supply and cannot be obtained readily, an FDA approved surgical mask and face shield combination is an acceptable substitute. However, the employer would have to demonstrate they have standing N95 orders that cannot be filled.
Minimize the amount of time the customer’s face covering is removed.
Encourage the customer to refrain from speaking while face covering is removed.
As a way to minimize extended exposure times, we are implementing a ‘Series’ approach to services that traditionally might require more than 2 hours in the chair. While we appreciate your desire to have everything done in one sitting, we will be encouraging our guests through video consultations to consider a staged approach to achieving their desired hair color/lightening goals.
AMENDED 10/1/20 – Facials, Waxing, and Hot Towel Shaves ARE NOW OFFERED UNDER THE GUIDELINES AS STATED ABOVE. Lash Extensions, Eyebrow Tinting, and Massage are not offered until additional relaxing of requirements are posted.
This list is subject to updates.
If we are unable to identify specific goals and more information is needed when an appointment is booked, as in the case of an Online Booking, we will attempt to contact the guest for clarifying information. If we cannot make contact, we will automatically create a separate Consultation appointment which can take place 24-48 hours prior to an appointment time if adding this time to the original appointment is not feasible. This allows the guest and the stylist to get to know each other and to work together on the best approach to satisfying the needs of the guest and the restrictions of the Salon.
We will be utilizing Zoom or Facebook Messenger for video calls whenever we can, which will originate from our secure server located within the Salon. Guests will need access to any camera/microphone equipped device. If Facebook Messenger is preferred, please be sure you ‘Like’ AND ‘Follow’ the Fox Adder Hair Design Facebook page. The link for our Facebook page is located at the bottom of the website.
If for any reason either option above is not feasible, stylists will attempt to contact the guest at the phone number or email address given to us at the time of booking. Please check spam filters and whitelist foxadderhairdesign.com
In addition, we will not be able to offer beverages that are not sealed. You are welcome to bring in your own non-alcoholic beverage in a covered beverage cup.
The following guidelines have been established by the State of Washington regarding Personal Service establishments as indicated. Fox Adder Hair Design is and will be in compliance of these requirements 100% in addition to our already stringent sanitation requirements set forth by Washington State Cosmetology State Board. We apologize in advance if any of these guidelines impact your experience at our Salon. We will be working towards increasing our customer experience while maintaining compliance with the State of Washington. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we navigate these new waters. These are strange and trying times for all of us, but it is our ardent desire that we continue to deliver the highest quality of service, the relaxing atmosphere we have become known for, and the personal one-on-one relationships we have enjoyed with our guests. If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the statements, guidelines or rules mentioned below, please do not hesitate to contact us via Messenger at our Facebook; using our contact form at our website; adding a note to your booking in our App, or by calling us at 360-984-6187. Again, thank you for supporting us. Our appreciation is immeasurable. Without you, there would be no ‘Us’. Peace and Heartfelt Love – your Fox Adder Hair Design Tribe Family
Fox Adder Hair Design sincerely appreciates your cooperation while we navigate the incredibly strange and awkward changes of being open during a pandemic. Our staff have been trained on new PPE use, sanitation procedures, new ways of performing the services we offer, and reducing or modifying services. Your patience, cooperation, understanding, and compliance is crucial to all small businesses—To Keep Guests and Employees safe; to slow the spread of COVID-19; to help identify outbreaks through contact tracing, and mostly to help keep us OPEN. When you volunteer the information, we ask for and comply with the use of Masks and other policy, you are ensuring stability and success for all of us. Working together and helping each other is how we continue to move through the odd and confusing times ahead.

Sick Employee Plan:
Screen all employee-service providers at the beginning of their day by asking them if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches or new loss of taste or smell.
Ask employee-service provider to take their temperature at home prior to arriving at the business or take their temperature when they arrive. Thermometers used at the business shall be ‘no touch’ or ‘no contact’ to the greatest extent possible. If a ‘no touch’ or ‘no contact’ thermometer is not available, the thermometer must be properly sanitized and disinfected between each use. Any employee-service provider with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher is considered to have a fever and must be sent home.
Create policies which encourage employee-service providers to stay home or leave the location when experiencing symptoms or when they have been in close contact with a confirmed positive case. If they develop symptoms of acute respiratory illness, they must seek medical attention and inform their employer-owner.
Have employee-service providers inform their supervisors if they have a sick household member at home diagnosed with COVID-19. If an employee-service provider has a household member sick with COVID-19, that employee-service provider must follow the isolation/quarantine requirements as established by the State Department of Health.
Instruct employee-service providers to report to their employer-owner if they develop systems of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, or new loss of taste or smell). If symptoms develop during a shift, the employee-service provider should immediately report such and be sent home. If symptoms develop while the employee service provider is not working, the employee-service provider should not return to work until they have been evaluated by a healthcare provider.
If an employee-service provider is confirmed to have COVID-19 infection, employer-owner should inform employee-service providers determined to have been in close contact of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The employer-owner should instruct fellow employee-service providers about how to proceed based on the CDC Public Health Recommendations for Community-Related Exposure.
If an employee-service provider reports feeling sick and goes home, the area where that person worked should be immediately disinfected.
All on-site employee-service providers must be trained on the businesses’ policies, these requirements and all relevant sanitization/disinfection and social distancing protocols. Current and new employee-service providers must also be trained about COVID-19 and how to prevent its transmission. This can be accomplished through weekly safety meetings, where attendance is logged by the system, supervisor, human resources or COVID site supervisor.
All personal service businesses must meet and maintain all the requirements in this document, including providing materials, schedules and equipment required to comply. Additional considerations are made as suggestions and may be adopted as appropriate.
All issues regarding worker safety and health are subject to enforcement action under L&I’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
Employers can request COVID-19 prevention advice and help from L&I’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
Employee Workplace safety and health complaints may be submitted to the L&I DOSH Safety Call Center: (1-800-423-7233) or via e-mail to email@example.com.
