For Your Information and Comfort During the Current Health Concern

Aside from maintaining health and wellness as the most integral priority, we at Melange want to help ensure that you, our team and our business continue to be minimally impacted by the current health concern.

At Melange we practice top-notch sterilization and sanitation. We always have, and always will! In our 12+ years of business Melange  has never had a violation for sterilization or sanitation from AHS. Not once in over 12 years! We wash our hands and disinfect and sterilize our equipment. We also clean with alcohol and anti-microbial cleaners. Again, we always have and always will!

With wellness as one of Melange’s core values, the health and well-being of our people; customers, team members and families is a top priority. We think the best way to help ensure that is to practice great salon and personal hygiene always — not just during this public health concern, but always. This is a great example of why beauty professionals are licensed and that salons are regulated, inspected and have oversight by a provincially regulated body. It’s all there to ensure that the health and safety of everyone in the salon environment and the public are protected.

As long as we are all are practicing safety and hygiene precautions, Health Canada and AHS has maintained business as usual.

While Health Canada and the AHS have shared that for most of the Canadian and Albertan public, the immediate health risk is considered low, below is a list of practices we are following and recommending to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as seasonal colds and flu, based on collective information from Health Canada, AHS and the World Health Organization (WHO):

  • Washing Hands: Health Canada recommends washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to help prevent the spread of germs. We wash or disinfect hands before and after clients, after eating, using the restroom, and after coughing, sneezing or nose blowing. We also use 70% alcohol sanitizer at our desk and some stations (what we were able to restock!)
  • Disinfection: AHS directs that proper cleaning and disinfection are mandatory at all times — from tools and implements to areas with counter tops, treatment rooms, back bars, reception areas, and styling stations. We are strictly following this — wiping down busy areas often with disinfectant cleaners.
  •  Hands Off: We love you and your family, and we love hugs and handshakes! During this time, shaking hands or giving hugs to our clients and co-workers is not a good idea. We’re practicing good hygiene and following the Health Canada “hands off” protocol to help keep everyone healthy. For all of us, keeping your hands “off” and away from your face, as that’s an easy path for transmission.
  • Staying Home: Keep your immune system strong — lots of vitamin C, restful sleep, and drink ample water. However, if you get sick, Health Canada and the AHS strongly recommend to stay home. At Melange  we  are offering a “sickness cancellation policy” that does not penalize any customer for cancelling their appointment due to illness. We ask if you are feeling ill to please reschedule – take care of yourself and your family. This protects our staff and all our lovely guests.
  • Well-stocked Salon: Our salon has tissue, soap, and alcohol-based hand cleansers to encourage healthful habits.
  • Health Canada/AHS: Follow them for facts as they become available — this continues to be the best source for information; https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health.html https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/

 As a reminder:

  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Don’t touch eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Don’t share food or drinks.
  • Stay at least three feet away from anyone who is coughing or  sneezing.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into your elbow.

 Any questions: We are here to help.  Email angie@salon-melange.com or call us anytime: (780)465-2425
