Important Skin Testing Information

Colour Testing at AJSSkin Testing at Antony John Salons In Lichfield

We have some really important information about your first colour service appointments after lockdown. You may have seen in the media the change in policy from many insurers in our sector around skin testing procedures.

There's been a big shake up in the industry around the importance of skin testing and the regularity of it, something that should have been in place for some time.

Most of the new measures are things we have always had in place (as you know we have always strived to run the most professional of outfits) however, there are some changes that we need to make you aware of.

Read on to find out all you need to know about Skin Tests at Anthony John Salons in Lichfield...

If You've Had A Covid Vaccine

If you have had, or are due to be having your vaccine prior to your appointment, then you must have a skin test at least 48 hours before your colour service.

If You Haven't Had Your Hair Coloured In 6 Months

If you haven't had your colour done for 6 months then we must re skin test you at least 48 hours before your next colour service.

If You've Changed Medication / Had Tattoos

If you've had a big change in medication or have had a permanent or henna tattoo since your last colour service, then you must let us know before your next service so that we can re skin test you.

...And Finally

Obviously, this does mean many of our clients will need to be re skin tested before their first colour service with us due to so much of the adult population receiving their vaccine during this lockdown period. It is also worth noting we cannot do those skin tests before reopening on the 12th (hopefully) as it's illegal to have clients on site.

So, with all of this in mind please think about it when we phone you to book your appointment, you MUST have your skin test at least 48 hours before your service if any of the points above affect you.

As you can imagine we have to be strict on this, so I am sure you will understand our policy will be that without a skin test, we will not undertake a colour service.  So please pop in during our opening hours from April 12th for your tint test, it takes just a minute to do, and then we can get your dream colour back for you knowing that you are safe. x
