COVID Updates & Procedures

All stylists are back in the salon! If you had an appointment while we were closed, you should have received a call or email that we are ready to reschedule your appointment. If you feel as though you were missed, please give us a call and we will get you taken care of, or schedule online.

Online booking is now open! We also have an online waitlist as well. Please keep in mind that it is first come, first serve. (See below for directions to join the waitlist.)

We have also completely restructured our service options to better serve you! Our services are now much more specific so that we can schedule more accurately and keep things running smoothly as we are also building in time for extra sanitation. You will now see options based on your hair type (Fine, Medium, Thick) as well as new options such as ‘Dry Curl Re-Shape + Refresh’ (for returning clients only), ‘Makeover Cuts’ and ‘Transition Cuts.’ At this time we will not be offering blow drying (diffusing), but will use the hooded dryer when needed. For a complete breakdown of our new options, please visit our Services page!


There are also several new procedures in place to stay within the CDC’s guidelines and keep everyone safe. 

When You Arrive for Your Appointment:
1. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment time. 
2. Call us from your car when you arrive and we will prompt you to answer a screening questionnaire. 
3. You will then be contacted when it is safe to enter the salon for your appointment. 
4. It will be greatly appreciated for you to arrive at your scheduled time. There will not be extra time to accommodate due to the need to follow directed stagered times and appropriate social distancing.
5. Please arrive to your appointment ready with all questions and inspiration pictures. This will enable us to proceed in a timely and efficient manner with your services.
6. Please only bring into the salon your absolute necessitates (no purses, please). We’ll be asking that you hold your belongings in your lap.
7. When you enter the salon, we’ll have you wash your hands and guide you through the rest of your experience that you have so eagerly anticipated!


Guidelines We Will be Following Inside Ambushed Salon:
1. Everyone entering the salon will be required to wear a face mask at all times. We ask that you please be prepared with your own mask. We will do our best to have some extras on hand for purchase, but they will likely be very limited.We know everyone really loves our coffee, snacks and drinks, however we will not be able to supply beverages/snacks at this point in time. Please bring what you will want to enjoy while you are enjoying your time with us!
2. Please do not bring additional guests to your appointment. Exceptions will be made for an adult accompanying a minor or an individual with special considerations requiring assistance. Please let us know when booking if this is the case.
3. If you require special accommodations due having high risk needs, contact us for time frames available for scheduling. Examples would be older individuals, health concerns, physical challenges, etc.
4. We know everyone really loves our coffee, snacks and drinks, however we will not be able to supply beverages/snacks at this point in time. 
5. Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when you enter the salon. We will do the same before and after every client. 
6. When you require to visit the restroom, please ask for assistance from your stylist or desk staff. We are there to ensure the room is clean and sanitary for your safety.
7. Be assured that our work areas are properly cleaned and sanitized for each arriving guest. Including all essential tools and cutting capes.

10. Even though we will not be offering blow dry style services at this time (temporarily), we can still offer air drying under the hooded dryer. This does not apply to services for dry curl shaping cuts. Of course when things settle down a bit, they will be added back into expected services.
11. Unfortunately, we will not be set up with extra time to add on additional services outside of what is booked. Only the service scheduled for will be provided.
12. Please come with your curls properly prepped for your service. This will help us immensely. Please have hair detangled, dry and defined, small amount of product, hair down and free from buns, braids or ponytails.
