What to Expect at Your Next Appointment

Under the most recent announcements from Governor Kemp, Salon 124 and Genesis Salons will reopen on Friday, April 24th, with strict sanitization and social distancing guidelines. We understand many have anxiety and fears regarding coming to the salon. Our plan to reopen takes into account all of those fears combined with economic concerns. If you are comfortable with the guidelines we have set, we welcome you and look forward to serving you. Our safety protocols incorporate standards set by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology and the CDC to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases, many of which we implemented in March prior to closing. 

Please understand we are rebooking thousands of appointments and are calling/texting all of our 124 FAM. We are not accepting walk-ins. All appointments will be scheduled and confirmed ahead of time. Do not call your salon. We’ll call you. Instead, we ask that you utilize our mobile concierge by texting your salon with your name, services needed, preferred service provider and any scheduling limitations. We will respond as soon as we can. You can reach your salon’s mobile concierge by texting the same number you would call us at.

When You Arrive 

Please bring your own mask. It is mandated by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology all “clients should wear face masks to the extent possible while receiving services.” Please stay in your car with the air conditioning on, so we can measure the most accurate temperature reading. We are diligently working to sanitize all touchpoints between every guest. Text us your name when you arrive for your appointment using the same phone number you would to call us. Once your stylist is ready and their station is sanitized, we’ll text you back and greet you at the door to take your temperature and have you sign a service waiver confirming you can answer “no” to the following questions:

  • Have you had a cough?
  • Have you had a fever?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the past 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?
