Despite the hindered circumstances, the salon chain is already trending towards 60% of footfall observed in a regular business month this season.

The professionals have been provided individual service kits that are first thoroughly checked by the JCB Task Force, established by the company to overlook safety at the salons. Post a health and hygiene check, the experts carry onto the designated appointments that are restricted to a few a day.

We have received numerable inquiries for our Home Salon Services & its commencement. Our clients have been confident in the past with health, safety & hygiene standards and thus have no qualms over choosing us for their home services. Any queries that they may have is being addressed by a specially appointed JCB Task Force of operational managers, industry experts, Doctors and servicing staff.” highlighted Samir Srivastav.
