As for Covid-19 safety protocols, the salon will maintain reduced capacity and employees will check guests’ temperatures upon arrival. Free face masks and hand sanitizer will be provided. Customers will be required to wear masks, and separation screens will be used to divide the styling stations.
The general public will have to wait a few weeks before they can get an Amazon coif for themselves. Initially, the salon will only be open to company employees. Amazon doesn’t currently have plans to open any other locations, according to a company press release.
The London salon is the latest example of Amazon’s growing brick and mortar footprint. The e-commerce giant currently operates dozens of Amazon Go cashierless convenience stores, Amazon 4-star general merchandise stores as well as around 500 Whole Foods locations. Amazon also recently opened several Amazon Fresh stores in London, as well as a checkout-free grocery store.
