Five Beauticians Offering Housecalls in Nairobi
As Kenyans continue to adjust to the “new normal” of stay-at-home orders, one can’t help but wonder what some of the everyday activities we used to do without a second thought look like now. Salon appointments, manis, pedis and dermatology and spa visits.
Health experts have warned that salons, barber shops, nail parlous and spas are petri dishes for COVID-19. What with all the physical contact going on and shared facilities. But if you’ve noticed your friends looking all glam and put together during video calls, you might be tempted to visit your fave beautician at their place of work and get a much needed beauty treatment.
We highly advise against this risk. Don’t sacrifice your health for vanity! But if you really feel like your whole world is crumbling because of your unpolished nails or overgrown eyebrows, you might want to consider a house call.
Though having a beautician come to you at home significantly reduces your risk of contracting COVID-19, you still have to put in place some safety measures. These include but are not limited to: Wearing masks and personal protective gear (gloves, face shields, sanitary suits), thoroughly sanitizing at point of entry and after service and testing the beauticians temperature before they enter your house.
Here are 5 Nairobi based beauticians offering house calls amid COVID-19.
