POSTED BY Julia Ching


The outbreak of the pandemic has brought enormous losses to every existing individual across the globe. Be it a person who works hard for his hungry stomach on daily wages or a renowned entrepreneur, everyone has suffered massive losses. This pandemic has drastically affected everything from the environment to humans to businesses to the economy, and what not.

Well, coming to the main point, here our emphasis is on the wellness industry, which includes salons, spas, and much more. The pandemic has drastically hit the beauty industry as well, Beauty owners have instantly started facing a decline in customers, sales revenue, etc. Customers have also faced a lot, especially those who are particular about their frequent makeovers, body cleansing, body fitness, and all.

But after the availability of vaccines, things have changed. The fear of getting in touch with salon personnel and customers is comparatively low. Customers always feel glad when they get the privilege to take advantage of free services. Now, the scenario at beauty salons is completely different. Customers are free to step into salons. Measuring temperature upon arrival, proper sanitation, mask-wearing, and social distancing measures are strictly followed by salons to maintain safety. Many salons are practicing capacity restrictions as well. Vaccinations have given some relief to customers as well as salon managers.

Additionally, many salons are adopting salon software, which is another contribution to maintaining safety in this pandemic. By offering various features like online booking, cashless payments, etc, it maintains social distancing and minimizes the spreading of this disease. Now, let’s move on to know further how vaccination will change the situation in salons.

Impact of vaccination in salons

#1. Customers will start returning

The invention of vaccines has somewhat reduced the customers’ fear, now they wish to return to salons and spas. Consumers are stepping into salons with complete safety and expect the salons to follow the same as well. People are eager to get back to their beauty routine. Most of the customers are returning to salons and spas because they want to relieve their prolonged stress.

#2. Half of the customer population is still worried about cleanliness

Though vaccination is available, a certain proportion of customers are still cautious about their health and sanitation. The extreme fear of this pandemic has impacted different people in different ways. Where, on the one hand, customers want to return to beauty salons, on the other hand, an equal proportion of people are still in fear. Many customers are still in doubt, whether salons and spas are strictly maintaining safety measures and cleanliness or not. By maintaining cleanliness, sanitation, and distance, COVID can be beaten, and consumers feel this can be done appropriately in homes only. That’s why they are in a dilemma about how they can be safe outside of their home.

#3. Adopt digital solutions wherever possible

After the creation of the COVID-19 vaccines, the COVID threat is still there. We can’t sit relaxed; following COVID guidelines is still the way to get away from this disease. But to keep everything in balance, fighting this disease is also mandatory. Shutting down everything is not the solution, rather, finding alternatives would be better to fight against this.

By embracing tools like salon software, the beauty industry can still stand on the ground. A salon solution maintains social distancing, touchless or cardless payments in the Salon, and online bookings. With these features in your salon management software, you can make a difference. With online booking, customers can seamlessly schedule their appointments without standing in lines and maintaining distance. Various online payments reduce the number of touches and promote touchless transactions, and the best part is, that there is a smartly built-in correlation to COVID measures. It truly works best at this critical solution for many salons

#4. A rise in demand of high touch services

On one side, customers still have fear even after the origination of vaccines, on the other side, it has reduced the fear of many customers. Earlier, low-touch services were of great interest among customers, but, with vaccination now, customers are prepared to take high-touch services. Women are eagerly interested in taking high-touch services. They are well prepared to receive facial, massage, and spa services. The vaccination has truly reduced the extreme fear of this disease to a great extent.

Moreover, beauty salons and customers themselves are also taking care of them by wearing masks, practicing frequent sanitation, and maintaining distance as well. One more fact, numerous consumers have made themselves aware that COVID has remained part of their lives for more than a year. They feel fighting against it by taking appropriate safety measures is far better than escaping from it. Now, it’s been a long time since every individual is fully aware of how to take care of themselves and not be the reason for someone else’s illness.

#5. Least chance of getting in contact with Covid

As more and more people are chasing after vaccines to get it done there, there is less possibility of COVID happening. Business personnel are also planning to take vaccinations to get back into their work and provide safety to customers. The vaccines leave some antibodies in your body and minimize the chances of people getting infected with this disease to a greater level. It enhances the immunity of individuals to fight against COVID 19. Thus, more and more people are aware of vaccines, and they are planning to take them as early as possible.

#6. Once again increase in sales, revenue, customer retention, etc

Now, business owners can again experience a wave of happiness in their salons and spas. They can see customers returning, an increase in revenue, ROI, and much more. Staff can also return to their workplace. Salon managers have no more to go through financial constraints and losses. After the wide distribution of COVID vaccines, more and more customers will rush to salons. The hike in appointments and customer service demand can somehow compensate for the losses earlier suffered by the wellness industry. Salons can again implement marketing strategies to retain their customers and grow their business, like earlier. Also, with exciting discounts, gifts, coupons, etc., you can call your customers back and earn greater sales, conversions, and profits.

Most importantly, now customers can experience more cleanliness, hygiene, and sanitation in salons. The COVID has somewhere taught everybody about the true essence of maintaining cleanliness. This is the primary thing customers will surely see in the salons and spas.


We all know COVID-19 has hit everybody and everything, like anything that cannot be expressed in words. On one side, few have felt stressed due to confinement within four walls; on the other side, many were lying on death beds or going through massive losses. But vaccination has somehow minimized the fear.
