Health and Safety Policy
As a professional makeup and hair artist Alana will ensure health and safety is of utmost priority.
Following are the measures that will be taken to ensure this:
All makeup and hair products will be properly cleaned and sanitised prior to their use and cream or liquid products will be decanted from packaging before being applied to any face.
All tools will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised before every new application. If a client shows any signs of infectious conditions, disposable tools will be used in an effort to not spread the disease.
Alana from a young age has experienced significant hay fever allergies which can be set off by cats, grass, pollens, dust and mould. Symptoms include sneezing, runny/blocked nose, watery/itchy eyes. Being aware of the current times it is important to acknowledge that these are allergies and are not an infection. In these instances Alana ensures her hands are sanitised after every tissue use and a mask will be worn.
When offering services outside of Alana MUHA's home base:
Any necessary surfaces that appear dirty will be sprayed and wiped down with disinfectant spray.
A clean towel will be set out on any surface before laying out the makeup and/or hair products and proceeding with the application.
When using heated tools, a heat protective mat will be set down on the surface the tool is to be placed on.
If necessary, the space to operate in will be checked for potential hazards, damage to furniture that would affect its use and for adequate ventilation.
If necessary, fire exits will be noted and in the unlikely event of a fire, earthquake or any other natural disaster, a simple plan will be named where possible (ie what to do and where to meet).
Additional Health and Safety Notes:
The makeup chair provided by Alana has a weight rating of 150kgs only. Should this be not suitable, please notify Alana ahead of time and in advance of your appointment for her to find a suitable alternative. Alana MUHA is under no obligation to ask clients their weight; the onus is on the clients to advise Alana ahead of time.
Children in attendance of the booking are to be supervised by a responsible adult at all times. Children are not to be in the service area at any time, unless they’re having a service done and being supervised by a responsible adult. This is for their own safety; Alana uses expensive, very heavy, electrical equipment, which can become damaged if not used correctly. Alana is not responsible for watching children. By making a booking with Alana MUHA, you acknowledge and accept this policy and release Alana from any liability if such a situation should arise.
Alana is fully vaccinated and will be masked up for all bookings when required.
Alana has implemented extra measures to ensure she is performing at the highest possible hygiene standards.
The entirety of Alana's makeup and hair kit frequently receives thorough deep cleans. These include: a full wipe down with disinfectant spray on all surfaces in the kit, makeup/hair brushes and tools get deep cleaned with sunlight laundry soap after every use and each individual product gets sanitised with isopropyl alcohol.
Alana's kit includes: disinfectant spray for any surfaces used, plenty of isopropyl alcohol and hand sanitiser.
Alana now owns plenty of quality grade face masks and will be wearing them in all required scenarios.
After much research it was decided not to add gloves or face shields to the kit. In Alana's research it was found that ensuring hands are often thoroughly washed with the use of hand sanitiser in between washes is far more effective than any gloves. And while we prefer not to look like surgeons whilst glamming, the face shields ultimately do little more than the face masks themselves so it's been deemed unnecessary in this business.
If you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms please let Alana know ASAP so we can plan accordingly. This goes for Alana too. Let's not take any risks, it's not worth it!
