We are very sad to announce that M will not be returning to the barber shop on July 4th onwards. She would like to share her news of being pregnant, and due to the nature in which we would be returning to the shop, we have deemed it too risky for her to continue as before.
As you may already know, we have been on the hunt for a new barber, and thankfully the position has been filled. If you requested an appointment with M on our waiting list, this has automatically been given to R or Ali.
This has not been an easy decision to make for either of us, and we were both hoping that there would be better advice/guidelines given for pregnancy however it is very vague and not a risk we think is worth taking.
M will be back at some point, and R will be giving you regular updates on this! M would like to thank you all for your support over the years and she will miss each and everyone of you.
We have decided to close our waiting list now, so we can deal with the amount of people on it.
We will inform you when our BOOKSY calendar is open for business again so if you didn't make it on the waiting list you will be able to book yourself in as usual once we allow BOOKSY to be up and running!
Please note, slots will only be allocated when Government Guidelines have been issued. There is no point in making twice the amount of admin work for ourselves giving clients slots when further clarification is needed.
Thank you for your patience.
Please rest assured we have received all of your e-mails and you have been put on our waiting list.
We are now waiting for the final advice for Saturday 4th of July before we can allocate your slots. Once all slots have been allocated, then our calendar will re-open and you will be able to change the dates and times if the slot/s we have given you don't suit.
Thanks for your patience at this weird time!
Please check out our new price list and our new organisation of the week. There will be no more concession days. All prices are the same Tuesday to Friday for simplicity and all haircuts are full price on Saturday.
Please familiarise yourself with these changes so when we open BOOKSY again for bookings this will not come as a shock.
Looking forward to seeing you from Saturday the 4th July onwards!
With the estimated date of Saturday 4th of July to reopen, we have started making changes to how we do things at M&R'S....
. No waiting chairs will be available.
. Our front door will be locked to avoid walk-ins in between clients and to ensure social distancing of 2metres is maintained.
. Anti-bacterial gel will be provided and we will ask that you use this before sitting on the barber chair and before you leave.
. BOOKSY will send you a notification when we're ready and waiting for you. It's called the 'I am ready' feature - please remain outside, or in your car until this is received.
. M&R will be wearing protective shield visors, as well as a face masks. Please appreciate that talking may be difficult.
. Only 1 adult per household of children. If you can give us instructions and then wait in the car that would be most appreciated. As you all know we can be trusted and follow instructions well!
. Reading materials will no longer be provided.
. No access to our toilet. This is for staff use only.
. All appointments must be made online or via e-mail.
. No beard trims will be offered.
We are now taking names to be added to our waiting list for when we can re-open. Please use the 'contact us' page and write your preferred barber, day of the week, and time.
