Last week, Ippodaro Natural Salon reopened its doors to the public after Gov. Greg Abbott cleared all cosmetology businesses to reopen. The quarantine hit a lot of local businesses hard, but the persevering and charismatic staff at Ippodaro kept the spirit alive over the two-month-long duress. Once Terri received the green light, she immediately began preparing to introduce new sanitary and social distancing measures into the salon’s structure. The team spent Monday May 11th briefing on all the new changes being made to intake procedures, new sanitary protocols, and Wednesday May 13th was the Golden Day back. To them, it was a jovial experience. Seeing familiar faces and speaking to each other, although mundane, was something many guests and team members felt excited to do. These new procedures took a day of adjustment, but the team had each other’s backs through this “New Normal”.
