Covid - 19
Updates & Policies
To all the valued clients of Birds Nest Beauty Studio:
Birds Nest Beauty Studio will officially re-open Tuesday June 9. 2020. When you arrive, you’ll notice some changes. In order to manage the social distancing and safety protocols required by Worksafe BC Birds Nest owners, Renee Hyette and Shaleen Hauck are the only 2 stylists to return to the Salon. Reducing our staff and our services has been an incredibly difficult decision but one that best fits where we are in our lives at this time.
Our dear colleagues: Renee Meilleur, Kate Hart, Elya Sunduk and Sawyer Dodd will no longer be providing services at the Birds Nest. To book an appointment with Renee M, Kate, Elya or Sawyer please visit the TEAM section for their current contact information.
We understand how desperate everyone is to book an appointment and that everyone wants to come in ASAP. After much deliberation we have come up with a process that we hope feels fair to everyone.
All clients who had appointments scheduled in:
MARCH will receive an email on Wednesday May 27th inviting them to book an appointment online with Renee or Shaleen.
APRIL will receive an email on Thursday May 28th inviting them to book an appointment online with Renee or Shaleen.
MAY will receive an email on Thursday May 29th inviting them to book an appointment online with Renee or Shaleen.
We are reaching out to hundreds of clients and you are all important to us. To help us communicate effectively we will only be responding to emails at this time. Please use the booking link in the email you will receive this week to book your appointment.
If you have not received an email inviting you to schedule an appointment by Monday June 1st, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and Renee or Shaleen will get back to you.
Please familiarize yourself with the Covid 19 Safety Protocols and Procedures.
We’re looking forward to seeing to you all again,
Renee and Shaleen
