Hair, nail salons prepare to reopen with new safety precautions
Hair and nail salons in New Jersey are getting ready to reopen after months of closure due to the coronavirus.
Something New in Manalapan is among the salons opening Monday morning and owner Olga Isakov says she has spent thousands of dollars making changes to keep customers safe.
Salons will use disposable towels, aprons and smocks for employees and customers. Isakov says they will also give customers a temperature check when walking in and use partitions to ensure people stay 6 feet apart.
Some salons will also use a machine to clean hairbrushes with UV light.
Among the other changes, appointments are required, with no walk-ins, and some hair treatments will be done outdoors.
