After months of being closed and working to strict guidelines we’re now slowly able to bring back some Valet favourites to the menu. Things are slowly starting to feel a bit normal again. The month of June is set to offer some highlights at our flagship store. Take a look below there’s so much going on!
Boris’s 4 step Roadmap will potentially allow us to open under step 2 on Monday 12th April, subject to data assessments being satisfactory. We’re looking forward to getting you freshly trimmed in time for Spring.
Implementing this plan requires the Government to be guided by data, not dates, so that they do not risk a surge in infections that would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS. For that reason, all the dates in the roadmap are indicative and subject to change. There will be a minimum of five weeks between each step: four weeks for the scientific data to reflect the changes in restrictions and to be analysed; followed by one week’s advance notice of the restrictions that will be eased.
Step 2 is currently booked marked to take effect no earlier than the 12th April, and will be subject to an assessment of the data against the four tests. If Step 2 is delayed, subsequent steps will need to be pushed back in order to maintain the necessary five week period to assess the impact of each step and to provide notice. We will keep you posted in the event that we are notified of any change in date.
We have provided a link covering steps 1- 4 here Publication of the Roadmap As we move through each of these phases in the roadmap, we must all remember that COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. For the moment we are going to have to keep living our lives differently for the next few months to keep ourselves and others safe. As such our PPE and social distancing policies will remain in place at the Valet until the data indicates otherwise, so we will carry on with ‘hands, face, space’ and comply with the COVID-Secure measures that we previously had in place at the salon. Staff will wear full PPE and customers will need to wear a face masks whilst in the salon and also sanitize their hands on entry. If we all continue to play our part, we will be that bit closer to a future that is more familiar and hopefully we can achieve this by the 21st June by all doing the right thing, please see COVID-safe guidelines for close contact businesses,
How we plan to manage the booking process

If we don’t reach you by telephone we will book you an appointment and will send confirmation of this by email and text message. If the time and date offered is not convenient for you, then please respond to the email and we will make alternative arrangements to suit your schedule.

New! – The Valet Gift Card
Makes a perfect Christmas gift to hang on the tree, it can be loaded up to any amount and comes with a smart gift wallet and a personalised message
We’ve recently designed and produced a Valet credit-card style gift card that you can top up to any value of your choice, which will also sit very nicely in your own or your partner’s wallet. Just ask at reception on your next visit to obtain one and get it charged up. This way, on every visit to our point of sale, you will simply need to produce your Valet gift card with your own personal barcode which we then scan to debit the value of your treatment or product purchase.

Alternatively, our online payment facility is available through your online booking account. All online deposits and gift cards will automatically be assigned to your client account. You will also be able to log in to your online account to book an appointment and pay for your service upfront.

Regional tiers will be announced later this week on Thursday 26th November.
