A barbershop chain that has a location in the Mosaic District plans to offer haircuts to essential workers this summer.
Floyd’s 99 Barbershop plans to donate 4,500 haircuts as part of its “Hair for You” program, which will also allow clients to purchase a haircut and then gift it to someone, according to a press release from Taylor Shields with Prim Communications.
“As we open up our shops, we are working diligently to be sure clients know that not only their hair but their safety is in good hands when visiting Floyd’s,” Floyd’s President Jamie Repenning said in the press release.
Floyd’s has a location in the Mosaic District at 8296 Glass Alley, Suite 130 and will offer “Hair for You,” Shields said.
More from the press release:
Adhering to local requirements and incorporating additional precautions based on the recommendations of health officials, Floyd’s Barbershops will follow strict safety rules. Clients and employees will be required to wear face masks at all times.
Government restrictions on capacity will be strictly enforced at each shop. Employees and clients will have temperature checks prior to a shift and their service. Barbers and stylists will sanitize hands and tools, disinfect barber chairs, and provide clients with fresh capes and towels. Every night and each hour while open, surfaces and high-traffic areas throughout the shops will be cleaned and sanitized.
Clients are asked make an reservation online or through the Floyd’s app and arrive alone; those not getting a service will be asked to wait outside the store to ensure optimal social distancing.
During this time, Floyd’s has suspended its shave, beard and waxing services to protect clients and employees and enable mask wearing throughout the service.
