The things that are done in the salon are different from how we learned at school.When washing a client others don't take the time to to clean the shampoo bowl,and almost never put a towel in between the client and the bowl.The thing that's the same is cleaning the hair up after every hair cut.

I agree, we don't do half of the stuff we learned in school. We dont clean the shampoo bowls after every person, or use a neck strip, but then again we wash our capes after every person. We also dont use gloves with every chemical service, or santitize our stations that often.

shannon said.... we have two bins of liquid containers one with yellow soap flakes and the combs go in there first then into the barbercide for 10mins. then we rinse then dry.

Sanitation in the salon is somewhat different from how we do things in the classroom.In the salon I never see others clean out the shampoo bowl before or after every use.And when it comes to putting a towel between the clients neck and the bowl it's almost never done.

we used 2 containers of different type of chemical in there. one is color green which is like cleansing for 10 min then the other one is gray, which i don't really know what is for, but we leave it for 20 min. and then rinse.

sara said...

Sanitation is not near as good as what we do in school. Most of the other people in the salon do not sanitize combs, brushes, and clips. The only consistent thing that I see is using a clean cape for each patron.

I have noticed in the salon the sanitation requirements differ from what we learned. There is no cleaning up between clients the only thing done is sweeping up the floor. At the end of the day however the used combs and brushes do get washed in a green solution then a blue solution, rinsed and dried then put in a closed container. As far as spaying sanitizer after a client gets up it is never done. Neck strips are used.

Sanitation is very different in the salon from what we learned in school. I have no disinfectant to spray my work station. And when I share clipper blades and liners they are never cleaned. When i wanted to sweep the hair after each client I was told not to when there are clients waiting.

Vontel said...

The things that we learned in school are no where near stressed in the salon I work in. Sanitation is something that is used in only one fashion in my salon and that is when the combs are cleaned out at the end of the day. I try to keep in mind the sanitation rules that we learned but its hard when no one else follows proper sanitation rules

Vontel said...

I agree with you also mary, I never have proper cleaning at my station. I was told to sweep my hair to the side but only a complete clean up at the end of the day. I think its nasty that I have to sit there and look at cut off hair all day but i guess rules are rules.

Nisha said...

The salon I work at is very good at proper sanitation. None of the stylist reuse combs. They all have buckets in the dispenser area to place dirty implements. We always put a towel around the client. One time I was working on a client and I forgot to put a comb out cape around her and my manager gave a look that said I was doing something wrong. When I realized the problem, she said "just wanted to see if you could catch it"

Althought in school they teach us to sanitize and disinfect, everyone doesnt follow those rules. Iv'e seen hair left on the floor for hours at a time way after the client has left, and even cleaning the shampoo bowls doesnt seem to matter. You'll see combs brushes and everything else left in the bowls, and even hair in the chair waiting for the next client to sit in it.

Things in my salon are different from what I was taught in school. The shampoo bowl is not cleaned regularly enough. Combs are not cleaned until the end of the day. But the stations and the floors are cleaned after every client.

Phil said...

At the salon, I am doing my externship trough, safty and sanitawtion are stressed for the client as well as the stylist.

Phil said...

I agree with shanon, we properly sanitize combs and brushes. with a new comb or brush being used for each client

Phil said...

I dont have the experience that anila does in her salon. we have a system of training that keeps everyone orgainzed and working as a team keeping things clean and safe.

jessie said...

I agree with anila that sanitation is lacking in salons. The stylists need to take a crash course in proper sanitation.

jessie said...

I agree with mary cera I have no disinfectant spray at my station and implements are shared among all the staff and it is usually not cleaned when returned. They should at least clean it before returning the implement used.

Mary Cera said...

I agree with Mr. Phillip, we are provided with clean combs for each client, but we still lack in other sanitation that we were taught in school.

Mary Cera said...

I agree with Shannon,
We do have two containers to sanitize our combs and clips and guards, yes, Ms. Brown we can use guards! Hip hip hurray!

hi,
this is michele. And I would like to comment on sara's sanitation comments. The one good thing about the salon that i work in, they hire a crew to do a lot of the sanitation and cleaning. The only thing that we have to make sure that we clean is the shampoo bowl after each use. And we have to make sure that our implements are clean. Sometimes i see people not cleaning their implements but not a major issue.

Bich Nguyen said...

the sanitize at the salon where i work are not exactly as how i learned at school. Somtime the washing hand after each services, sanitize shampoo bowl procedure are missed. Cleaning shear,comb, sweep hair on the floor, towel on between client neck and bowl had been practicing as the same as the procedure at school.

Stacie said...

in my salon we dont use gaurds (on what mary said), and the sanitation is somewhat different. the shampoo bowls arent cleaned after each client, however they are cleaned once a day. the floor is swept after each person and i do disinfect my station whenever it gets dirty. i think im the only one who actually uses sanek strips, changes the capes, and clean my clippers after each person from what i have seen. so actually its really gross allthough the salon looks very kept up.

latrece nelson said...

NO, not at all. There day is built around making money. Which we all come to know and learn is that our time is money. So what alot of them do is try to find ways to perserve time. From my own personal experience is that they think that it is too time consuming. Or they just don't care, or don't know.

latrece nelson said...

Know at some shops that i have visited, don't even take time out to wash there hands. On a good day they just might use a clean and sanitized comb. U can't tell the clean towels from the dirty. And it's like no one cares about our health or our well being.

danielle said...

at my salon we follow some things and noyt others. we put used combs in "ship shape" after each client and rinse them at the end of the day. some of use use neck strips and we all sweep the floor after each client. as far as disinfecting stattions, i've seen hair brushed onto the floor, but i cantt say that i've seen anyone disinfect their station or wash their hands before easch client, or anything like that.

I can't say that I agree with any of my classmates. We pretty much follow all safety procedures. The only thing that we do, and no one else commented about is wearing flip flops. We are allowed but our manager says that it is unsafe. She also says that she lineant because if state board comes in they really don't come down about them. They look for more hazardous things.And that only if they start to find other things as a problem, will they nit pick at the shoes. I feel that because the salon is very clean and we follow safety procedures, we should not have that problem!!

Julia said...

At the new salon that i am they are very stricted about cleaning the shampoo bowl after each client.Also the stylists are so busy with clients that at the new salon they have extra people that come and clean up the cut hair but at Nappy Roots the hair was jus there until the stylist was free.

Julia said...

I agree with sara the sanitation we do in class isnt as good as in the salon. Combs are being reused and it's really based oin money too the faster yuo go the more time and money you have for the next client.

Julia said...

I also agree with inda because it just doesnt seem as important to sanitize in the salon.Especially at my old salon were hair was left in the sahmpoo bowl water was left on the floor and cut hair was on the floor until the end of the day.

JESSICA WHITE said...

I FEEL LIKE ONCE YOU GET PASS DOING ALL THAT WORK AND SANITIZING IN SCHOOL YOU JUST EITHER FORGET AND DON'T CARE TO DO ALL THAT IN THE SHOP. ALL I SEE IN THE SHOP IS STYLIST PUTTING THEIR COMBS IN A BARBACIDE JAR AND LEAVING. I DO TRY TO REMEMBER TO SANITIZE AND DISINFECT EVERYTHING.

Angela said...

I agree with Jessica White's comment about after school focus on safety and sanitation is either forgotten or you just don't feel like maintaining. No matter how my boss looks at me for "overdoing saftey and sanitation" I want to maintain the standards so I can pass the boards. And not only that there should be standards kept in making things safe for people.

melissah said...

The sanitation methods that we use in school we dont use in the salon, like sanitizing the shampoo bowl after each client, we clean it when we have time during the day.
Another thing is that we also dont change the barbicide solution each day, and we dont sanitize owr stations after every client. The only thing that we do like in school is to wash owr hands after each person.

melissah said...

I agree with Inda, I have also seen hair left on the floor and people still take clients even if the hair is still there.

melissa Cz said...

This is Melissa, i always forget my password, ha. ANYWAYS, i agree with what Angela & Jessica White both said. After were done with school people just usually either forget, or don't care as much about the safety and sanitation issues, since it's not inforced as much.
