Our decision to temporarily close the salon is now mandated by our county officials. For that reason, any appointments that are booked before April 7th, will be rescheduled. We will spend the next few days to reach out to all of our guests to help you all get back in.
We thank you so much for your patience!
Because We Love You, We are Putting a Lid on It.
Our salon will be
until further notice.
Our focus in the past few week has been to provide a safe and clean environment with good music, positive atmosphere, and space to create beautiful hair. We wanted to give our guest a stress-free and wonderful salon experience with us. But the time has come for us to follow our heart, and know there is a bigger picture outside of our salon. We need to tackle that head on, and do it fast.
This decision was not made lightly. A lot of sleep was lost. We considered many factors that the salon would really take a loss from, and ultimately, that was ok, because your safety and well-being comes first to us. By further supporting social distancing and closing our doors, our hope is to flatten the curve and slow the rate of impact on our community. "Be the change you wish to see", and here we are, trying to be that little change.
Sometimes, we have to take a few steps back, before we can take a new step forward, and we are okay with that. We made this decision, based on that clarity of what's in our heart and mind, and hope that the impact will pay off for the people we love. Prevention over profit, always.
We appreciate all of our guests for your understanding during this time. We know many of you have booked your appointments during the holidays and often three months in advance. Rest assure, we will do our best to take great care of everyone soon. While we will miss seeing you all, we know we will be together again and in our hands, you will be taken care of. What we can say now is certainly, our salon will remain closed until April 3rd. We will be in touch to reschedule your appointments as soon as we know when.
We know this will soon be over- and we look forward to seeing you (a healthier, happier and more hairy you!) again. See you soon!
Please email us anytime, with any questions you may have. Thank you.

YOU'RE IN GREAT, CLEAN HANDS WITH US!
Healthy and Happy YOU!
The best plan, is to wash your foxing hands!

Let's Get Our Hands Dirty and Talk About It.
(Just kidding- please wash your foxing hands, por favor)
What Can You Expect From Our Salon?
At Fox and Belle Salon, our top priority had always been the health and wellness of those around us.
On February 28, we held an emergency "Team Gathering" in our salon to discuss what Covid-19 was. Reminder: At this time, Covid-19 only had FOURTEEN cases in the whole UNITED STATES- it didn't even hit Berkeley yet! But because our salon takes great pride in the safety of our team, guest or community, we didn't wait for Covid-19 to be a classified pandemic, (weeks later), to take action. We were already taking preventive measures to maintain a clean and sanitize atmosphere for each guest entering our salon home.
We have always practiced great salon and personal hygiene -- not just during this public health emergency, but always. Your health matters to us, now and always.
We know there is growing concern as the outbreak and impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of the communities we serve, has always been a top priority, and is especially critical at this time.
You can always rely on us to keep things clean. We have passed every inspection done by The State of California Board of Cosmetology and Barbering. They show up unannounced, to make sure every salon is up to code and following all safety and healthy sanitary regulations. Not only do we pass without citations, but the inspectors always compliment us on how clean we are. We will do our best to continue to uphold those standards and maintain our flawless record for our salon, guests, community and families, now and always. Thank you for trusting us.
YOU'RE IN GOOD, CLEAN HANDS!
