COVID-19

March 21, 2020

COVID-19 is a concern to us all, and here at The Body Barber it's being taken very seriously for not only for the health and safety of my clients, but also myself and those around me. 

As bookings are by appointment only and are a one-on-one basis I have been told that YES, under new measures @ 23 March 2020 I am still able to be open as a business.

UPDATE

Under the new crackdowns, beauticians, waxing and tanning studios, massage therapist are also now closed. Hairdressers and Barbers will remain open but observe the 4msq distancing between chairs. As such, I am still open but in a limited capacity to that of just cutting, clipping or buzz shaves under the barber component of The Body Barber. 

What businesses will be left open?

Under the new measures, cafes and restaurants will be able to operate, but only to offer takeaway and delivery services.

Hotels will be allowed to continue operations in an accommodation capacity.

  • supermarkets
  • banks
  • petrol stations
  • pharmacies
  • convenience stores
  • freight and logistics
  • food delivery
  • bottle shops
  • hairdressers and beauticians

I can not stress enough that it is extremely important that EVERYONE is aware of factual information. Being misled by various social and media platforms and the conflicting information out there is sensationalised to the point that people are almost at mob mentality and disrespecting those most vulnerable, who are already doing it hard.

Further more, I would like to re-iterate and stress to all my clients, that the standard of hygiene has always been paramount in the care I provide to minimise the risk of transmission of anything communicable as set out by the Dept. of health.

On this point PLEASE, anyone that has recently returned from overseas as of 15th March, 2020, that you respect the governments's policy to self-isolate for 14 days. Please let me know immediately to cancel or reschedule your bookings, should you be self isolating or have come in to contact with anyone that has been confirmed with COVID-19 or being tested for it ... don't worry, cancellation fees will definitely be waived.

If you are experiencing any symptoms such as sore throat, swollen glands, coughing, a fever or shortness of breath please stay home or seek medical advice.

On a more personal note, I know a lot of you will be home because of the new measures taking place, but using hookup sites, such as 'Grindr' and the like, may not be a wise choice considering the brief, random and at times anonymous nature of these hookups. Guys, putting yourself and others at risk as a result of thinking with the brain between your legs rather than the one on your shoulders, isn't exactly social distancing.

Where should Australians draw the line?

"Common sense," Mr Morrison said, with consideration of the threat of the virus to the community at large.

"It is not just about each of us individually but the person standing next to us, the person who lives across the road, the elderly resident in the same apartment building as you."

I encourage you all to visit the Australian Department of Health's website for which a link is provided below as well as one for those with concerns regarding COVID-19, for those with HIV as well as an interactive COVID-19 self assessment.

Oh and whilst here, I'm now dabbling with Instagram so if you would like to follow and share the love ;-)        

Click on the images to go to site, take care, and stay safe, cheers, Zaque.

Alternatives to waxing or shaving at The Body Barber
Alternatives to waxing or shaving at The Body Barber

March 22, 2020

At The Body Barber™, manscaping, dude-pruning, bro-mowing, scrotercation or just plain ol' hair removal .... aesthetics play a huge role in body hair management and is what my business is all about. In using various professional tools of the trade, I'll style, sculpt and engineer your body hair giving you that confidence about not only looking your best, but feeling it as well.

Consultations for clips are free, unless work is carried out at the time, so text or call to see how big a difference a clip can make to not only yourself, but to how others interact with you as well.
