Organic beauty has always been about health and wellness, so
for Helen Ting, owner of Nature's Organic Hair in Yorktown, complying with New
York’s new safety procedures for salons wasn’t much of an adjustment.
“I’ve always worked with my clients one at a time, in my
cozy, well-ventilated residential salon, so adhering to the state’s social
distancing rules was never an issue,” she said. “I’m ready to serve people’s
hair-care needs with all-natural products and individual attention to
protecting their health.”
All clients are required to wear a mask and will be provided
one if they don’t have one. Ting wears a mask, a face shield and gloves, which
she changes between each client. She also practices a protocol of thorough hand
washing and sanitizing of all equipment, which she places in a UV sterilizer
after each use. During the summer, weather permitting, she will also offer
services in her outdoor garden.
“I’m excited to start working again with all of my former
clients, and I’m offering a special 15 percent discount for all organic
products, cuts and colors until August 15,” Ting says.
For color, Ting uses Organic Way and Chi, all-organic products
lines that are ammonia and PPD free. She also offers highlights, perms, keratin
smoothing treatments, waxing, facials, massage and acupuncture.
