With coronavirus affecting everyone in the hair industry—with no definitive answer to when things will go back to normal—professionals are seeking every opportunity to maintain clientele and keep a COVID-safe salon environment.
The Pro Safety Group launched their Pro Safety Beauty Summit last month. It was a free online conference that featured the biggest names in the hair and beauty industry. Among the standout panelists of the three-day event were Riawna Capri, Kim Vo and Jonathan Colombini.
In addition to COVID-safe salon practices, participants also highlighted several products they’ve incorporated into their new routines, given the times. Keep reading for four innovative products in the hair industry that promote workplace safety.
The Face Shields: $11

Each of these lightweight, powerful protectants is made of transparent, recyclable PET material, and provides coverage from the top of the eyebrow to under the chin area. A single order comes with an adjustable full face shield with one clear detachable visor.
