keepin’ it #clinicallyclean2020-07-30T19:59:48+00:00

here at THE TEN SPOT®, we adhere to the most stringent hygiene standards + practices, going well above and beyond government regulations. seriously, we’re kind of intense about it. as clinical cleanliness is a major concern in our industry, we think it’s imperative that our (insanely high) standards are in place for the health and safety of our guests + employees. our cleanliness policies are the same in all our locations, so you can trust that every visit to THE TEN SPOT® is safe.

we’ve always been about clinical cleanliness, but now we’ve upped our health + safety game even more.

here’s what we’re doing to ensure you + our 10spotters® remain safe during this time of COVID-19:

  • before we re-open, each beauty bar is performing a deep clean of our entire space – that includes cleaning every single room, product + furniture in our location. we’re getting to work!
  •  before each and every service, our 10spotters® will be disinfecting all of our surfaces + seating before your service starts.
  • we are now using an even higher grade disinfectant that goes over government regulations for our stainless-steel tools. as always, anything that can’t be sterilized will be tossed away.
  •  our 10spotters® will always be wearing masks in our space.
  •  we are limiting the number of guests in our bar to support social distancing.
  •  we now have hand sanitizing stations at the front desk upon entry for anyone who comes in.
  •  our 10spotters® will wash + sanitize their hands between every client + services.
  • our 10spotters® are asked to stay home if they are feeling ill or do not feel well enough to come into our space.
  • we will be extending our bar hours +  providing additional time to work to prevent crowding and to accommodate all of our clients!
  • we have updated our training to include robust health + safety protocols for hand washing and masks (application + removal).

here’s how we’re asking all guests to help us stay #clinicallyclean.

  • all of our 10spotters® + guests must wear a face mask when entering our spaces.
  • everyone who enters our beauty bars must sanitize their hands upon entry.
  • everyone must wait outside our beauty bars until the front is clear of other guests.
  • if you are feeling symptomatic please reschedule your appointment.
  • keep a social distance of 6 feet (when possible).
  • we’ve gone cashless. debit and credit cards are our preferred method of payment.

sure, every spa says they follow “strict hygiene standards” (spoiler alert: they don’t) but we really really mean it, and we’re happy to tell you about how we’re keepin’ our nail bar, wax bar, laser bar + skin bars #clinicallyclean. after all, they’re for your benefit! if you have any questions, give us a call.

  • stainless steel implements are scrubbed + disinfected in a bath of isopropyl alcohol.
  • gloves are worn by estheticians for pedicures.
  • pedicure sinks are scrubbed and soaked with medical grade disinfectant and bleach after each use.
  • we don’t use “spa chairs” or whirlpool-type foot baths. these are impossible to clean or disinfect so it’s a hard pass from us. foot basins with whirlpools or taps are a breeding ground for mycobacterium fortuitum, which is a fast growing bacteria that causes boils and scarring on the legs. in 2001, the centres for disease control in atlanta, georgia issued a warning against them, so we don’t use them!
  • we don’t perform services on anyone who has fungus, warts, herpes or any other communicable disease. sorry, but it’s against the health + safety regulations that all spas are supposed to follow. lots of places turn a blind eye to this rule and provide the service anyway – which is probably how these things spread. if you have something, please see your doctor and come back to us when it’s all cleared up.
  • we never double dip wax. double dipping is one of the most dangerous (and gross) waxing practices – and unfortunately, it happens at lots of spas. imagine the guest before you got a butt crack wax and now you’re up for an upper lip wax. in a place that double dips, all that nastiness could be spread on to you (literally). we’re talking dead cells, hair, bacteria, fungus, fecal matter, blood, mucous, discharge… with double dipping that’s all going back into the pot. vom.
  • we never re-use anything that cannot be disinfected. aTHE TEN SPOT®, our nail files, foot files, and buffers are only used once. new guest, new files. incredibly, this is a practice you won’t find everywhere. seems pretty obvious to us.
  • launder wax strips. gosh, it’s so gross we can barely think about it – but yes, some spas just rinse the wax and hair off of their strips and re-use them on the next client. #traumatized
