As salons reopen across the country, having the right personal protective equipment (PPE) is key. To help eliminate any extra stress or concern that beauty pros may be experiencing, Olivia Garden has launched OG Essentials, a specially-designed line of PPE for salons.
“Olivia Garden’s priority has always been stylists. In this new reality that has turned our world upside down, we brainstormed what we could do to reopen the hairstyling community safely,” says Anne Maza, co-owner of Olivia Garden. “Putting quality and innovation at the forefront of our products, we developed a collection of items that we determined would help the stylist and the customer feel a little more at ease in the salon.”
OG Essentials includes six PPE products: Clean bags, chair covers, disposable capes, fabric face masks, face shields and disposable gloves.
The Clean bags are self-sealing and recyclable bags that are meant to store disinfected tools or fabrics in order to keep them fully safe and sterile.
The disposable capes and chair covers are designed to be quick and easy solutions to keep your clients comfortable and germ-free throughout appointments. The cover is also a great solution to help extend the lifespan of your chairs by avoiding the repeated use of harsh chemicals.
Another innovative addition is a cotton face mask made with adjustable ear loops and an interior sleeve to insert a disposable mask as an extra filter. It’s perfect for your stylists who want to take as many safety measures as possible to keep themselves and their clients safe.
“The OG Essentials aims to help customers and stylists feel at ease when being back in the salon,” says Maza. “It also serves as a visual representation to the customer how seriously the stylist is taking sanitation.”
The OG Essentials line can be purchased at Venus Beauty Supplies, Capilex, West Coast Beauty, Salon Centre and Tru Beauty Salon Services.
