TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- The pandemic has changed how most places do business, all the way down to where you get your hair cut.
In this week’s Oklahoma’s Open Channel 8’s Amy Jenson talked to the owners of Tonsorial Barbershop.
Tonsorial has followed all of the typical guidelines to ensure you are safe while you get a killer haircut.
But they’ve taken it a step further, using LED lights to keep you safe.
Tonsorial Barbershop is already unique, it’s located in a shipping container nestled in downtown, Tulsa.
“2017 was our first start at it,” Crystal McDaniel, the owner of Tonsorial said.
Crystal McDaniel never took a day off, until March 18th, when the pandemic shut down non-essential businesses.
Now they are back up and running and they’ve added new steps to keep you safe: including led lights.
“I did a little bit of research and with the pandemic, I thought oh we should get those,” McDaniel said.
McDaniel says they are used to help kill mold and bacteria that lands on surfaces.
“We will leave them running for six to eight hours every day,” she said.
It’s a newer trend you may start seeing around town.
But she’s also implementing some of the typical trends: neck guards, masks and of course strong disinfectant.
“We wipe down our chairs with Barbicide,” she said. “Which is what we’ve always cleaned our combs with because they’ve said that’s the strongest thing you can use.”
With things changing every day, McDaniel says she’s watching the coronavirus numbers and is on high alert to always keep you safe, while styling you up.
Tonsorial usually accepts walk-ins, but because of the coronavirus, they are only taking appointments.
