Magazines Are Back!

As part of the re-opening of Wispers back in July and in line with Government advice (and common sense) we removed the magazines from our salon. This was a hard decision to make as we know how much our customers like to relax with a magazine during their appointment. We have been looking for an alternative and we are now pleased to announce that on our return in early December we can offer access to over 100 of the most popular titles in our salon. However, these will not be paper versions but instead you just point your own phone or tablet at one of the QR codes placed on the mirrors and it will take you to your own library on your own device for you to choose your magazine(s) to read. Titles include Vogue, Country Life, Hello, Elle, GQ etc and all titles are the latest version as you would find in the newsagent.

We hope you like this new innovation which means that you can still enjoy your favourite title but with the confidence of knowing that you are reading it on your own device.

Same Wispers… Different Look

Wispers re-opened the salon on Saturday 4th July in line with the government policies of re-opening shops, pubs and restaurants. The last few months have been tough on everyone and we fully understand the concerns and anxieties that our clients and team members may have about returning to the salon and so we have invested heavily in new equipment and measures to ensure everyones safety and comfort. Some of the measures include:

  • Hand sanitising units throughout the salon
  • Portable screens to provide separation where necessary
  • Staggered appointments to avoid congestion in our reception area
  • All team members wearing visors whilst in the salon
  • Clients asked to wear masks during their appointment (please bring your own but if you do not have one, we can provide one for £1.00 per mask)
  • Taking contactless temperature readings of team members at the start of their shifts and customers on entry
  • All stations cleaned as soon as vacated with medical grade cleaning products
  • Air condition filters cleaned daily
  • Salon deep cleaned every night
  • Screens at reception and in our nail room
  • Extra training and briefing for all team members to ensure all of the new compliance rules are practised without exception.
  • Re-opening guide at every station for further information

We are also pleased to announce that we were the first UK salon to receive the Covid Aware award by the Good Salon Guide which endorsed all of our policies and practises and is testimony to the hard work put in by the team in preparation for our re-opening. We look forward to welcoming you again but if you have any concerns or queries please call our reception team on 01329 835678 or email at bookings@wispers.co.uk

Wispers Reaches The L’Oreal Colour Trophy Semi Final – Second Year Running

Huge congratulation to Alex and Fae for reaching the Semi Finals of the prestigious 2020 L’Oreal Colour Trophy. This competition has been running for over 60 years and is one of the main competitions within our industry and is always heavily subscribed.

Alex and Fae entered the Men’s Image category with this entry which was the culmination of weeks of behind the scenes preparation and creative inspiration. The semi finals would normally be held in London during April but due to the Corona Virus, L’Oreal have now decided that judging for the final will take place behind closed doors and so we will find out next week if we have made the final later this year. We are very proud of Alex and Fae’s achievement and fingers crossed for next week’s decision. Watch this space!
