Opening after COVID-19: Strategies for Success

As we prepare to come back to our salon suites, we must keep in mind that creating a healthy environment for our clientele means more than just carrying the proper equipment, products, etc. to ensure a safe visit.

Communication will be key to making sure your clientele will be coming back to you in a healthy state and you will be providing them a safe environment to service them of their beauty needs.  Since our industry is one where we come into contact with our clientele in a close space, we need to take all precautionary measures to adequately protect each client and their families as well as ourselves.

Here are some things you can do to communicate with your clients on new procedures that you are setting in place as you prepare to open up your business:

Vet your clientele

Reach out to your clients and ask them if they’ve been in contact with anyone who has been sick or was exposed to the COVID-19 virus.  If they answer yes to any of these questions, ask them to take the proper precautions, to quarantine, and to reach out to their primary care physician.  This vetting process of each client will ensure that you will not be allowing someone who is in a sick state to receive a service that may cause an outbreak in your suite or the salon as a whole.  This is also the time that you should also let your clients know if you’ve experienced any symptoms or were exposed to the virus and the steps you’ve taken since.

New arrival protocols

As our salons reopen, be aware that new procedures will be put in place to ensure the safety of all who walk into our shared spaces.  Let your clients know that they will no longer be allowed to wait in the hallways.  Once they arrive for a scheduled appointment, ask them to call you to make sure they are able to come into the salon.  If you are still with a client, ask them to wait in their vehicle and that you will let them know once it is okay to enter the salon.  This will ensure that we are abiding by the “6 feet apart” rule.

Deep clean your suite

Prepare to deep clean your suite prior to re-opening.  Make sure you have all the proper products to disinfect after each client.  You will need to a lot time after each service to properly clean all surfaces thoroughly, as well as your chairs, door handles, etc.  Taking this extra step to ensure you are taking every measure to sanitize will be appreciated by your clientele.  Consider sharing these extra steps by video or stories to provide visual confirmation to your clients and create a sense of comfort and safety.

Work with your Concierge

Your Concierge will continue to be the first point of contact for all who enter the facility, exactly like they have in the past.  When reasonable, your Concierge should try to open the door for customers. Realistically, this won’t be possible every time, but it is a good practice as it will limit contact transmission on door handles at the entrance. Furthermore, as often as possible, your concierge should care to properly clean and sanitize all touchpoints used by clients entering and exiting the salon. Your entryway should provide hand sanitizing stations to all your customers, as these products become available. Once entering the suite, each suite owner should likewise, offer hand sanitation to each client if these products are available for owners to acquire.  We also encourage you to place signage at the front of and throughout your location instructing anyone who has a temperature or may even just feel unwell in general, to reschedule their appointments and consult with their primary care doctor as soon as possible and to self-quarantine until that time.

Now is the time to prepare to reopen and with a different outlook than before. Our business will be focused on offering the top service with the most sanitized and safe environment for our clients.  To provide even more evidence of the steps you are taking, here is a link to a certification you can do online on infection prevention and control. Simply click here.

Taking these extra safety steps will ensure we are doing everything we can to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and give confidence to our clients, suite owners, and vendors that Salons by JC is a safe place to continue to visit and get your services done.  While there may be some frustrations with the new procedures, we’re positive that the large majority of clients will abide by them and champion you and the salon for taking extra measures to keep them safe!

We encourage you to visit our blog and to reach out to your franchise owner for more information, helpful tips, and for any other questions you may have.

Self-Care during COVID-19


Being the beauty professional, our business has always been the main provider of “self-care” rituals for our clientele.  From spa days, massages, hair, nails, the list goes on and on. Beauty professionals provide an escape for many when it comes to rest and relaxation.

But what happens when those clients are no longer able to de-stress with us?  Each of our salon suite owners took great pride in creating the ultimate salon, providing each client with a way to lose themselves for a few hours as a beauty professional took care of their needs.

How can we still provide “self care” away from our salon suite?

As social distancing and self-isolation is being practiced across the country, the social interaction that made the trips to visit your beauty professional have temporarily ceased.  Here are some ways you can still provide that escape during social distancing.

Show me your roots!

Ask your clientele to show you their roots.  From either a text with a photo, or a FaceTime call, you will be able to see your favorite clients and also check on their hair growth.  For many, including myself, I am not ready to release my inner grey.  Giving practical tips on how to hide the greys by choosing different hair styles and also making sure they avoid box color are key to them returning to your chair with healthy hair.

Nail care and polishing tips

While some of us are longing to get back in front of our nail techs as our talons grow to new lengths, our nail techs want to make sure that we don’t ruin our nail beds.  Reach out to your nail clients and have them show you their nail growth.  Give them tips on filing them down instead of cutting them.  Also, give them the best tips to remove their shellac or dip polish by using the proper methods to avoid nail damage.  Tips on how to do an at home mini manicure are a fun way to connect, you can also use this time to show off cool new Spring colors.

At home massage

While stress seems to be an underlying theme in our present lives, there are many ways that we can relieve some stress at home before getting back in contact with our clients.  Connect with your massage clients and share weekly tips from basic breathing techniques to short pulse point massages they can give themselves to relax.  Sharing some basic insight with them will encourage calmness and also create the synergy and focus they are seeking from you while away from your suite.

One brow or two?

Being away from our brow tech can be something to cause panic in some.  At home tweezing may lead to more work on your part once we are able to visit the salon.  You may want to encourage proper upkeep that can be done simplistically and with ease.  We all know friends that have gone tweeze crazy and ended up with microscopic brow, we don’t want that.  Taking the time to show videos of basic brow clean up can help your clients stay away from mishaps.

15-minute facials

A good facial always makes your face feel great and also perks up your spirits.  Sharing tips on moisturization, proper water intake, and face washing will help your clientele keep their glowing complexion.  With added stress, our skin will react.  Rejuvenate your skin with what you have at home.  Connecting with your clientele will put their mind at ease and also keep their skin clear until their next appointment with you.

At Salons by JC we are here to support our salon suite owners and their clientele.  Remaining positive and ready to tackle the future is what we are focusing on as we get ready for our grand comeback, maintaining a constant presence in each of the lives of those we have connected with through our talents.

Wait For Us: Things Your Salon Suite Owner Wants You to Remember

Wait for Us

With salon suites closing temporarily across the country alongside traditional salons due to the outbreak of COVID-19, independent owners of the salon suites are doing everything they can to come out positively when the time comes to reopen. It’s well known that great, long-term relationships are formed between stylists and their clients, often becoming like family. Like family, your stylists are striving to keep in touch. From reaching out to their clients on social media, email, phone, and text, to developing creative strategies for maintaining cash flow, these entrepreneurial spirits are working harder than ever, and you can help them succeed.

At Salons by JC, we, as well as our over 3,000 independent salon suite owners, ask that you keep the following in mind when it comes to your favorite salon suite owners.

Not all locations are closed

While the large majority of salons and salon suites have been temporarily closed to limit the spread of coronavirus, there are still many areas of the country where operations are continuing as normal, or as normal as possible. These locations are still accepting appointments and scheduling new appointments as well. We encourage you to reach out to individual salon suite owners or the Salons by JC location nearest you and find out if they are open if there are any changes to their typical hours, and when you can schedule an appointment.

If you have to cancel an appointment, reschedule for another time

This is a major one. If you know that your salon suite owner had to temporarily close, and you had an upcoming appointment, rather than simply canceling your appointment or assuming it’s been canceled, reach out to your stylist and schedule a tentative date change. With forecasts for COVID-19 related closures expecting to end anywhere from mid-April to early June, there is a wide timeframe that you could schedule one or more tentative appointments. This will not only allow you to have some much-needed self-care to look forward to but provide your stylist with much-needed support and an expectation of at least some normalcy and income.

When they reopen, remember the hygiene benefits of a salon suite

Salon suites have many benefits over the traditional salon, most of which, you have probably come to enjoy during the time you have had a relationship with your stylist. Some of these though probably went unnoticed in the past, but with the current crisis, are more important than ever. Salons are typically large, open room facilities and are often very crowded, sometimes with 10,20, or even more people in a single space. In comparison, salon suites are very often a private, 1 on 1, or possibly 2 or 3, individuals in a single room, including your stylist. This creates an inherently safer environment due to the lower number of possible viruses and germ-carrying individuals, the ability to clean the entire environment much more often and much quicker, and a distinct, individual relationship in which you know your clients and how they are feeling much more.

You can still get stylist support in the comfort of your own home

We know that it may have been weeks since your last stylist appointment. Your roots may be showing, your ends may be split, and your nails may be chipped, but we strongly encourage you, do not try this at home. Chances are your stylist has worked with you for months or years to help you develop a great personal style while maintaining healthy hair, nails, and more. Don’t ruin all this effort (and your hard-earned money) with cheap, off the shelf products which may cause serious damage, to your looks and your body, and when you return to your stylist, your wallet, because they’ll have to fix all that damage.
Instead, ask your stylist for tips! They may have products or kits you can take home or order during the time period between appointments. Additionally, many salon suite owners are providing virtual consultations, often at little or no cost to their clients, in which they can give you ways to keep your style in check as well as a roadmap for the future until you can get back into the suite.

Social media and reviews are a great form of support

Sometimes the greatest gift you can give is a kind word. Salon suite owners are no different. We encourage you to find your stylist on social media and give them a positive review. Let others know how great they are, the ways they helped you, and how excited you are to get back into their salon suite. Even more, they are probably very active on social media right now, so share their content, leave a kind comment, or maybe send them a direct message supporting them during this challenging time.

Gift cards are a great way to support your stylist until you can get an appointment

Do you want to support your stylist even though you can’t physically attend an appointment? Ask your stylist if they offer a gift card. Gift cards are a great way for you to provide your stylist with immediate income while also pampering yourself with some future self-care. It’s a win-win for everyone involved and it helps to ensure your salon suite owner will be around for a long time to come after the current crisis ends.

We truly hope you keep these tips, and your salon suite owners in mind, during this time. We know everyone has their own unique challenges to face but one of the greatest things you can do is reach out and help others. Your stylist will be extremely grateful. We’ll be extremely grateful.

From all of us at Salons by JC, stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you very soon!

5 Ways Suite Owners Can Self-Promote During COVID-19

At this very moment, our lives have been turned upside down, both professional and personal. What we formally knew as our normal daily routine is no longer relevant, as we band together, by staying apart, to stay safe against an invisible enemy.  

There’s little doubt that at this point you have seen many other retailers creating new programs and incentives to aid their companies in these challenging times, including offering free shipping when online ordering and restaurants offering curbside pickup or selling off their groceries. As beauty industry professionals you’re probably asking yourself, “what strategies can we utilize to remain afloat?    

Here are five of our best tips that you can implement today to remain present and increase clientele support you during this difficult time:

1. Stay active on social media

Remain active on social media just as you were before.  This is a great time also for those who have shied away from social media to take the time to explore what platforms will benefit your business growth the most.   Give your clients tips on how they can care for their hair, nails, face, and well being from the comfort of their home. Instagram stories are a great way to showcase mini at-home facials, how to care for your nails as your dip polish grows out, and even how to hide the grey hairs as we all wait to get our roots done.

2. Host free consultations

You miss them and they miss you so reach out to them and offer free consultations via FaceTime or other video apps.  Your salon suite is a place of relaxation and at times a mini getaway from a hectic life pace for your clients. Create that space over a conversation.  Grab a cup of coffee or tea and video chat with your client. Discuss their concerns while they are away from you for an uncertain amount of time. Giving them a sense of reassurance will go a long way.

3. Ask for family and friend referrals

How many times have you heard this before, “Everyone loved my look and I told them all about you!”.  Now is the time that your praises need to be sung from the highest balcony that is 6 feet away from everyone as we keep our social distance- ok, you get my drift!  Reach out to your clients and ask for referrals from family and friends. Through a free cut with their next service if they refer a new client to them. It is that simple and also it helps! 

4. Quarantine promotions

Now is a great time to come up with exciting ways to entice your clientele to book a future appointment with you.  For example, offering a free cut or free hair conditioning service with any color or highlight is something that can go a long way.   Adding a paraffin hand treatment to any nail service or even including a free brow wax with anyone who books a future appointment.  

5. Work on your brand

Now is a great time to work on your brand.  Take this time to review your presence on social media and see how you can take it to the next level. Experiment with IG Stories and Live Videos.  You can also look at your brand colors, logo, and how well you represent yourself in the industry. Come up with a keen marketing brand that can assist in boosting your presence.  You always hear people say that they don’t have time because they are so busy working, right now is the time to work on that brand.


Salons by JC was created on the foundation of empowering small business beauty professionals.  Allowing them to create their ultimate salon experience with support throughout the process. From day one when you signed that lease and grabbed your key until this very moment, know that you are on your own, but never alone as a salon suite owner at Salons by JC.

COVID-19 Communication Information

It can be difficult to stay positive when all the news concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19) is so overwhelming. Certainly, your clients feel this and everything you can do to communicate your knowledge and empathy about all that is surrounding us is critical for you and your business. As an independent beauty professional, you have the ability to speak directly to your clients about the steps you are taking to make sure that your business adheres to the state agency mandated sanitation as well as any extra precautions you are taking above and beyond those measures. The most distinctive advantage you have over traditional salons is the fact that you can control client flow into your suites and even the hours you are offering services. Clear, concise and responsible social posts aimed directly at your clients that convey your willingness to support them in challenging times can go a long way to keep you top of mind as both a beauty professional and a trusted friend.

The best and most proactive way to do this by starting with direct phone calls to your clients ensuring them that you are open for business and that you have taken direct steps to ensure their well-being. During the call it would be prudent to let them know the following:

  • You follow the state board rules for sanitation and cleanliness
  • You have taken extra measures to exceed sanitation requirements in your suite
  • Salons by JC as a company has reinforced its commitment to ensuring the facility is sanitized
  • You have the advantage if a lockable space with low activity as compared to other retail businesses
  • (If you are willing) You can adjust your hours to provide services at low volume times in the salon

A second and just as important outlet is to provide your clients updates on your social media platforms. With social media, it’s important to speak from your personal voice sharing your authentic concerns while remaining positive, which may help many people at this time. Short, simple and clear messages directly aimed at the following topics should be useful. We would encourage you to address the following topics

  • Cleanliness/Sanitization
    • During this time, the safety, health, and well-being of my clients and community is my number one priority. While everyone is facing challenges surrounding the virus, I encourage you to maintain the practice of self-care. I certainly hope that includes my services, but your general health and that of your family is of even greater importance.
    • Remember that the community, support, and care you’ve come to expect is not absent during these challenging times. I encourage you all to spend time with family, take any steps necessary to ensure your health, and do what you can to help others. Together we will all come out of this.
    • To all my clients: I am keeping you all in my thoughts during these challenging times. Know that I am still open and here for you to take some time for self-care. I am taking even greater steps to ensure the cleanliness and safety of my salon, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns about your upcoming visits or to schedule a new appointment.
    • Based on recommendations from the CDC and WHO, I am enhancing the frequency and scope of my salon cleanliness practices by following new health and safety standards to maintain a clean and healthy environment for my salon and my clients.
  • Cancellations
    • To any of my clients who may feel ill during this time – I would ask that you stay home and take care of yourself. Your health is the most important thing and taking steps to maintain it, such as drinking plenty of fluids, speaking with your physician, and eating healthy, are all the most important forms of self-care. I am currently waiving any cancellation fees, no questions asked, and I am more than happy to help assist you in rescheduling your appointments for a future date.
    • In order to ensure the safety of my clients and salon, I ask that any of my clients that may feel unwell to cancel any appointments you may have.  I am waiving all cancellation fees at this time, no questions asked. Thank you all so much, and stay healthy!
    • I would like to ensure you all that I am taking as many steps as possible to maintain a clean and healthy salon environment. However, should you like to cancel your appointment and reschedule for a later date, I am more than happy to assist you. I will be waiving all cancellation fees, no questions asked. Your health is my number one priority at this time.
  • Your hours of business
    • Yes, I’m open! I am taking all the required steps as put forward by the CDC and WHO to ensure my salon is as clean and safe as possible. For any questions or concerns, you may have, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
    • During this time, my hours will be adjusted to meet the needs of myself and my family, as our situation has changed due to virus-related factors. My new hours are [INSERT HERE]. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
  • How you can be contacted directly for questions
    • You can reach me by phone, or email, for direct questions.
  • What Salons by JC is doing
    • The Salons by JC family is closely monitoring communications and news about the COVID-19 situation and will take all necessary actions necessary to keep our salons and communities safe and healthy during these trying times. I will keep you all updated with any news or changes that come my way. Stay safe and healthy.
    • As the situation with COVID-19 progresses, I will continue to keep you all informed of any changes at my salon or Salons by JC. Your health, safety, and comfort are all my highest priority and I am keeping you all in my thoughts.

Social distancing may be the current trend for the near future but doesn’t mean that we should forgo social/business togetherness with communications that show your caring connectedness to the community. Your clients are surely wondering what they should do for their next appointment, so reaching out by phone, text and or social media will be appreciated by them and provide stability to your business.

We will continue monitoring official guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and communicating regularly with our franchisees and salons.

Project P.R.O.M – Making the Dream Prom a Reality

A salon suite affords beauty professionals their own freedom to run their business how they want – but some take their salon ownership a step further, using their talent to improve the community around them.

For Christin Peterson, owner of All Tresses by Chris at Salons by JC Pearland Town Center just south of Houston, this meant helping young girls who may not have the luxury of enjoying one of the biggest night’s of a teenager’s life – prom.

Christin Peterson – Salons by JC Pearland Town Center

After working as a probation and parole office for over 10 years in Galveston and Harris Counties, Christin was ready to leave “corporate America” and vowed to work for herself in the beauty industry she grew up in.

“I was inspired by my mother who was a hairstylist and instructor for 20+ years. I recall shampooing hair in the salon assisting my mom at age 14,” she shares.

In 2015, Christin started her professional beauty career at a traditional style salon, where she worked for two years before transitioning to Salons by JC Pearland Town Center, seeking a better, private environment for her clients. “My clients love their hair experience 100% better in my personal room versus the open salon I was in for two years!” she excitedly states.

Christin’s Fabulous Braid Work

The freedom of having her own salon suite allowed Christin to expand her beauty experience beyond the salon. In 2017, she was inspired to create Project P.R.O.M (Phenomenal Representation of Me).

“It was developed from an idea to give an underprivileged plus-sized girl a total prom experience that would boost her self-esteem,” she exclaims. “I meet so many women and young girls in my line of business who I inspire without even realizing until I’m told by them.”

One of Christin’s Project P.R.O.M Recipients

The idea of Project P.R.O.M first came to Christin as she was contemplating her love for plus-size fashion and her acceptance of being a plus-sized woman. “I believe EVERY woman should have the same self-confidence.”

She chose to focus on young women in high school to give them an extra boost as they graduate. “The feeling is overwhelming watching each young lady transform and exude the confidence that they have longed for!”

Christin enlists the help of her friends, family, and her clients to provide teenage girls with the full experience of a memorable prom with no cost to their families. “We all enjoy working with these young ladies and gain reward in giving their family financial relief from prom expenses and giving the girls an experience of a lifetime that they’ll never forget.” The project is now in its third year and grows consistently.

Project P.R.O.M Recipient

“My first year was just one girl, the second year was two girls, and this year we had three girls,” Christin says. “I have been able to fully dress these girls head to toe with brand new everything – I take the girls shopping and allow them to pick their own dress, shoes, and accessories.”

Along with her thriving non-profit, Christin also manages to grow her business at Salons by JC, adding “My business has grown and stabilized since moving to Salons by JC. My clients feel safe and enjoy the professional and clean space provided by our concierge.”

Helping Young Girls Feel Fabulous at Prom

Looking ahead, Christin hopes to continue to make the prom nights of many more teenage girls special by expanding her team, saying “This has truly been a blessing for me and the team. My team has grown since 2017 which is why I’m able to add additional girls each year.”


If you’d like to learn more about Christin’s Project P.R.O.M or help provide prom makeovers for next season, you can reach Christin Peterson directly through her Instagram profile or by phone at 832-754-1378.

Houston Willowbrook Celebrates Small Business Week

When Arlease Graves interviewed for the Concierge position at Salons by JC Houston North in Champions Willowbrook, her first impression of the salon suite was awe-inspiring. “Finding out that under one roof was a community of business owners was very exciting to me”.

After speaking to owners, Jeff and Mary, about the position and touring the facility, Arlease was convinced this would be a good fit. “Jeff and Mary told me to treat the salon like it was my own business and that mindset has been motivating me in my approach with potential new suite owners.” That outlook has also helped her in building rapport with her current suite owners, “I keep an open line of communication for any needs that may arise and I also make sure to work with them on their business plans and goals”.

Jeff and Mary Panjawani with Arlease Graves

The Power of Community

Arlease recently took the initiative to host a community small business week event at the salon that brought forth 5 salon tours that week that lead to 3 heavily interested lease leads.  “What made this event awesome was the participation of everyone at the salon”.  The tours were just an added bonus to an already successful event.  We asked Arlease what are some of her tips to staying on top of leads who have toured, but didn’t sign a lease.  “Leases take time, but don’t let them forget you.  I always follow up with an email if they don’t answer the phone when I call them.  I remind them that we would love to have them at Salons by JC and we will work with them to help them grow their business”.   Finding the perfect suite is also something that Arlease stresses during the time of the tour.  “Make sure that the suite fits their clientele and let them know that they can always go bigger as their clientele increases, but assure them that we are here with them every step of the way”.

Building the Small Business Community

The Small Business Week event planning started with a trip to the USPS Willow Place location so Arlease could learn more about what they could offer her suite owners. “We had 5,000 direct mail pieces that we had previously printed and I asked the station manager how we could best deliver them to neighboring residents and businesses”. This short discussion resulted in 2,400 mailers being mailed out at no cost to the Houston North location.

Seeing the success of interacting with her neighboring businesses, Arlease decided to organize a small business week event at their location that would be beneficial for her suite owners.  She contacted the USPS and Combined Life and Health Insurance and asked if they would be interested in having a table at their location to give information to their suite owners.  She didn’t stop there.  She reached out to Louisiana Finest Boilers who served up some delicious Crawfish for the event.

“The suite owners were very excited to be involved with National Small Business Week”. The location had t-shirts made with the Salons by JC logo in the front and each suite owner was offered the opportunity to have their logo on the back of the shirt.

An Empowering Environment

In just one year at Salons by JC Houston Champions Willowbrook, Arlease has transcended the environment and instilled a sense of community among the suite owners. It’s easy to sense her passion for her suite owners and for Salons by JC.  She looks forward to partnering with many more local businesses and organizations that can enhance business growth for her suite owners and bring great networking connections to the salon.  She looks forward to hosting and collaborating more events in the future for the Houston North location.

The key distinction at Salons by JC is our dedicated Concierge.  Arlease is the definition of the dedicated, hard-working, innovative Concierge who goes above and beyond to make sure the community is aware of the location and all the services offered.  She also focuses on the suite owners to make sure their needs are met to make sure they thrive in the salon environment.   Congratulations to the Houston North location and Arlease!
