Welcome Back! House Rules: IMPORTANT UPDATE

The Dandy Gent team is delighted to welcome you and all of our patrons back through our doors from Saturday.

We have previously sent out details of some new ‘House Rules’, which still apply:

Since issuing this notice, we have had more clarification from Government, so can now share with you all of the more pertinent points together below.

Please…

  • Only enter the shop at the time of your appointment – not early.
  • Wait outside until that time, observing social distancing.
  • Sanitise on entry and before exit – everything is provided for you.
  • Observe 2M social distancing at all times in the shop – with the exception of your barber, naturally!
  • Wear a mask at all times – following instructions from your barber during your service. For optimum effect – masks should be removed for a beard trim!*
  • Please touch nothing – but your own possessions! Keep your possessions about your person, or at your feet on the floor.
  • Ask a member of staff if you would like to test or look at products closely.
  • Pay by contactless card where possible.
  • Toilets will only be available where we have capacity to clean to the required standard – so please do not rely on these being open at all times. If you require urgent access, we will make a toilet available to you.
  • Apologies – facial shaving is not permitted at the moment.

We thank you for taking the time to read this AND for doing your bit for us and the nation!

See you soon,

The Dandy Gent team!

*PPE – Government states that all barbers must wear a visor only. The wearing of masks and face coverings is our own policy, designed to give added protection and peace of mind to all clients, staff and ensure the shop stays open. This decision will be reviewed regularly and you will be updated when this changes.

All Dandy Gent shops to offer extended hours on re-opening

Following the lockdown due to COVID-19, Dandy Gent boss Shane O’Shaughnessy has announced that all three shops will open for additional days and hours to get clients ‘back to their best’ as soon as possible.

Each of the 11 Dandy barbers will consider additional times they are able to work for more hours than usual to tackle outgrown hair – as well as the inevitable deluge of ‘DIY rescues’ on the hair and whiskers of frustrated isolators.

The times and days will vary, shop to shop, with Irongate, Derby and Nottingham shops pledging Sunday opening for at least the first month back.

“We are still unsure of when we can get back to our core business, of course,” said owner and founder of The Dandy Gent, Shane. “But when we do return it will be with additional infection control measures as needed – and for additional hours of business wherever we possibly can.”

New opening times and additional barber days will be released at the time of the re-opening announcement, with the three shops’ booking App currently set to re-take bookings on 1st June. This date is not fixed, but subject to further restriction announcements from our Government in the coming days and weeks.

The Dandy Gent’s online shop remains open for business as usual, offering an extensive range of handmade traditional grooming products and accessories to help keep locks conditioned and prepped for their first post-lockdown appointment.
