STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA)- One nail salon owner is back in business after nearly shutting down permanently during the coronavirus pandemic.
After the pandemic forced his salon to close for 7 weeks, Aaron Weiss said his nail salon has 70% of the business .
Aaron owns Belle's nail bar in Starkville where he reopened its doors last Monday.
Now when customers come in, they’ll see tables six feet apart, masks everywhere and glass partition dividers between them and the employees.
He requires employees and clients to sanitize their hands three times before services.
Workers sanitize all chairs and tables with a commercial grade sanitizer that kills coronavirus, said Weiss.
The customers will sign a digital consent form.
Aaron told WTVA back in April that the pandemic caused a financial strain on his business.
He thinks life won't be completely normal again until there's a vaccine or cure for the coronavirus.
“I think this is just going to be the way of life for the next year to two years,” he said.
The salon has an online booking site for customers to make appointments.
Only a few walk ins are allowed per day to allow social distancing.
