That Rosie Glow, which opened last year and has a team of nine staff, says it offers “all” hair and beauty treatments including aesthetics and advanced facials.

Owner Rosie Fraser told Scotland on Sunday that the salon has had bespoke divider screens made in Perspex with a brushed gold frame and engraved with the brand’s logo, “so it feels more of a luxurious permanent feature rather than a clinical, short-term solution”. These will go between each hair station, while there will be screens at the nail station and reception desk.

Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance and each station, while clients will be asked to come alone with minimal belongings at the time of their appointment, rather than early.

Fraser for 14 years has been a make-up artist, focusing on weddings, and is also a brow and brow lamination specialist, holding the role of elite master trainer for Scotland with The London Brow Company.

She added: “Hygiene has always been very important to us to maintain our high standards so we will be continuing with sanitising all tools, brushes, clips etc but also all the areas around before and after each client by blocking off time after each appointment.

“At That Rosie Glow our whole ethos is about beauty not just being on the outside but through our level of service, attention to detail and the whole experience. We strive to make every customer leave feeling more confident, beautiful and glowing on the inside also.

“Lockdown has really shown people that hair and beauty is so much more than a treatment, it boosts confidence, builds relationships and gives people much-needed ‘me’ time. We are awaiting government guidance to make further decisions regarding [personal protective equipment] etc but I want our clients and team to feel as safe and comfortable as possible.”

It comes after the salon was recently named Best Makeup Salon in Edinburgh and Best Makeup Team in South East at the The Scottish Makeup Awards 2020 in its first online ceremony.
