Green Phase Policies and Procedures

On 5/13/21, the CDC provided guidance that fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic without wearing a mask or physically distancing except where required by law, rule, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. Therefore, businesses are to follow CDC guidance, and the previous "Guidance for Cosmetology Salons and Cosmetology School Clinics Permitted to Operate During the Green Phase to Ensure the Safety and Health of Employees and the Public" outlined below, has been rescinded. Effective 5/27/2021.

We are thrilled to welcome you back to DeCola Salon! We have many new policies and procedures put in place in order to provide you with optimum safety and in order to follow all CDC and state-issued guidelines. Prior to coming in for your appointment, please take the time to read over the information below. While we hope that many of these policies are temporary, we ask that you are patient and understanding as we navigate this new normal. The safety of our staff, customers, and families is our number one priority and every decision we make is based with that in mind.

WHAT ELSE YOU MAY WANT KNOW​​ (the long version)

  • You may schedule an appointment via online booking here, or you may call the salon at 610-363-9554.

  • Please keep in mind that our phone lines are VERY busy and due to the volume of calls, we are not checking voice mail. We highly recommend scheduling online.  

  • If you have a specific request and are having trouble getting in touch with our front desk team, you can email us at and we will get back to you.

  • Please be patient with us as we have thousands of appointments to reschedule and our Front Desk Team is working around the clock book appointments.

  • Prior to arriving at your appointment, all customers must sign our Guest Waiver that can be found here. You will not be permitted in the building until this release is signed.

Salon Safety and PPE

  • In order to comply with our Governor's and CDC guidelines of maintaining social distancing, we will be operating at 50% occupancy.

  • The salon has been and will continue to be, professionally cleaned from top to bottom on a weekly basis.  Additionally, we have implemented hourly cleaning protocols to ensure optimum cleanliness.

  • All active styling stations are at minimum 6 feet apart.

  • Your chair, station, and tools will be cleaned and disinfected before and after your appointment. 

  • New capes and towels will be provided for each client.

  • All salon staff will be wearing masks and/or face shields and gloves as appropriate for the service provided.

  • All common areas will be temporarily closed.

  • We will be checking the temperatures of our staff members and screening them with a series of questions each morning when they arrive to work.

  • If you would like to come in only to purchase products, you must call ahead of time to schedule a curbside pickup.

  • We are putting all of our energy into creating a safe and satisfying environment where you can look, feel, and be your best. To that end, we are limiting ourselves to 50% of capacity to create optimal social distancing, staffing to reduce congestion, requiring personal protective equipment (PPE), and implementing sanitation and workflow processes designed to reduce your risk and increase your peace of mind. As you might imagine, these measures also reduce income and increase our costs. As we work together to navigate toward a new normal, DeCola Salon is applying a $5 PPE and Safety fee to every appointment. We hope this makes sense to you.
