With an aim to win the confidence of the customers and ensuring their return to the salons post the lockdown phase; leading beauty salons across India such as Lakme, Naturals, YLG, Enrich, etc. have made groundbreaking changes in their daily operations to secure the safety of their clients and staff. According to a Lakme spokesperson, they will keep their focus on delivering services in the controlled salon environment as safety and hygiene is difficult to replicate in home service. The new safety and health guidelines will raise operating costs. “Our consumable cost will increase the overall material cost by 30%, thereby increasing the tariff by 8-10%” said Enrich founder Vikram Bhatt.
