Amanda Desmond explained that at Super Cuts in Chesterfield Valley, customers must complete a form that hopefully mitigates risks for both the company and its customers. Disposable plastic sheeting is used one time for each client. Stylist stations are fully cleaned in between clients. Temperature is taken for all employees and clients. Hands must be washed by clients upon entering. Hands must be washed by employees before and after client hairstyling. Clients and stylists must wear masks at all times.
