The safety of all our guests is paramount to us and that is why we adhere to manufacturer guidelines on skin safety testing, which means carrying out a patch test 48 hrs prior to your appointment.
Although it is rare, a reaction to hair colour can occur and, if severe, can be painful and distressing. At its most serious, an allergic reaction can result in hospitalisation. For the thousands of perfect skin tests, whenever that one skin test flags a reaction before an actual colour appointment was carried out, all of us are hugely relieved we found out the easy, stressless way.
Our hair colours are supplied by Redken with whom we work closely and The Chapel salons are among the first to get to work with their most up-to-date products. Even if your hair has been regularly coloured we are obliged to carry out the test and can only proceed with colouring your hair once we are satisfied that it is safe to do so.
We appreciate that the skin test can be inconvenient from a practical point of view, (from a purely business perspective we would much rather not need to carry it out) It’s only for our guests' safety.
We are very grateful for your cooperation and we really look forward to welcoming you soon,
The Chapel Team
