Per Governor Mike DeWine, salons and other personal service businesses are allowed to perform services as of May 15th. At BRIDEface, we are aware of the risks that are inherent in performing makeup and hair services, and are putting the health of both our artists and our clients first and foremost.
However, we will need to make a few changes to the way we do business.
Our plan is as follows:
Masks will be mandatory: For our team, for our clients, and for anyone entering our BRIDEface studio. We will not perform services or allow anyone into the studio without a mask. If you need one and don’t have one, you may purchase one from us for $5.
Attendance is limited to those receiving services: For bridal trials or engagement photos, we welcome your mom, sister, or other friends to explore Findlay Market or the nearby area while waiting for you to finish. They are welcome to see a “big reveal” and please feel free to take pictures in front of our iconic pink doors! When onsite at a venue, hotel or home, we request that only the person receiving services be in the immediate area surrounding our artists, and please don’t be offended if we wipe down chairs and surfaces before working and between clients.
Sanitation is key: All of our artists will have hand sanitizer, alcohol, and disinfectant at their disposal, as always, as well as gloves and disposable applicators as appropriate. They will use the safest possible measures to ensure that there is no cross-contamination. Chairs will be wiped down in between clients, and please allow our artists access to the bathroom for hand washing as necessary when they are onsite.
If you show signs of illness, we cannot serve you: Each person who we serve will need to affirm that they are not ill and sign a waiver before service. No exceptions. At our studio, we will use an infrared thermometer to assess temperature prior to services. Brides will receive electronic versions of waivers, and attendants will need to sign paper copies.

In addition to these steps, we will be monitoring the latest information, including instructions and recommendations from the State Board of Cosmetology, the Ohio Department of Health, the CDC and World Health Organization to do our part in preventing the spread of disease.
We will continue to keep an eye on the situation and make further adjustments to our action plan if and when necessary. The health and well-being of our clients, team, and community are of utmost importance to us and will continue to be our north star as we navigate the road ahead.
Thank you for your steadfast support of our business—we are truly grateful.
and the entire BRIDEface team
