Baraboo hair salon prepares to welcome back customers

BARABOO, Wis. — A Sauk County hair salon is getting ready to welcome back its customers next week.

Shear Trendz in Baraboo has been closed for eight weeks, which equals about 400 to 500 lost appointments. Since the “Safer at Home” order was lifted, the owner and stylists are anxious to get their clients back in their chairs, but not before doing anything and everything to ensure safety.

Those measures include putting plastic on all stylist and shampoo chairs, bleaching everything from top to bottom and giving customers a sanitized or disposable cape.

“We do have a sanitation station they will go to before entering the salon to gel up or go directly to the bathroom to wash their hands, so we tried to think of anything to protect us and our customers,” said Shear Trendz owner Jina Kryder.

The salon is limited to only 10 people, including stylists. All services can be done, but they cannot blow dry. It has been highly recommended to not blow dry because anything airborne would get blown around the salon. Kryder asks all their customers to remain patient during this time and know her team is excited to get back to work.
