Our entire staff has been fully vaccinated since our demographic was eligible, in Spring 2021.

For those traveling from outside of West Seattle, remember to give yourself extra time since the WEST SEATTLE BRIDGE is CLOSED.  *PLEASE NOTE:  YOU MUST COMPLETE & SUBMIT THE WAIVER AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE PRIOR TO CALLING TO SCHEDULE YOUR  APPOINTMENT. If you have already submitted a waiver, you do not need to submit for each appointment. At each appointment, we do ask that you continue to adhere to all other safety protocols listed below, and if you would answer any of the waiver questions differently to please let us know.

REQUIRED:

When possible, please try to give as much notice in cancelling your appointment(s), but please know if you are displaying ANY symptoms, you will not be allowed entry, and will not be allowed to return until you are symptom free. You can find more information relating to the COVID-19 virus, including symptoms, HEREFor quarantine guidelines, please visit the CDC website HERE.

APPOINTMENT 

SCHEDULING:

***YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR COVID-19 WAIVER PRIOR TO CALLING TO SCHEDULE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT. If you have previously filled one out, we have it on file, and ask that you continue to monitor your health, and NOT schedule an appointment if you would answer your original waiver questions differently, or feel unwell for ANY other reasons*** 

Beginning Monday October 4th, Illusions will be requiring that ALL clients who enter be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. There are no exemptions or exceptions. ALL CLIENTS MUST PRESENT A VALID COVID VACCINATION CARD, (the card itself, a photo copy of it, or a photo of it on your phone), showing that you have received all current doses of the vaccine in order to enter. Your final dose noted on your card must be at least 14 days prior to your visit. We will NOT keep any of your personal information that is on your card. (PLEASE DO NOT SEND US YOUR CARD OR A COPY OF IT). It MUST BE PRESENTED AT THE DOOR BY EACH CLIENT at your appointment.  Once we have verified your card, you will not need to bring it or show it again for future visits (unless we alter our requirements for BOOSTER vaccination proof at a later date).  Any person accompanying a client must also show their valid vaccination card for entry.

 

<<With vaccinations now available for kids 5-11, they will be allowed in the salon beginning 2 weeks after their second vaccination dose. A parent or guardian will be required to show their valid card and their child's valid vaccination card for entry. Facial masks continue to be required.>>


If you have a scheduled appointment ON OR AFTER OCTOBER 4th... PLEASE BE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CARD or A PHOTO OF IT ON YOUR PHONE BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE! If you cannot present us a valid card, you will not be able to enter. We cannot make accommodations for you to locate your card if it is anywhere other than on your person or on your phone upon your arrival.  We cannot make adjustments to your time slot for that day if you do not have your card. We will cancel your appointment, and we will be charging a $25 NO VACCINE CARD PRESENT FEE that you will have to pay before you can book another appointment. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We will NOT accept any false or fake card information. If you have not been vaccinated, you will not be allowed to enter. By misrepresenting yourself as vaccinated when entering schools, mass transit, workplaces, gyms, or places of worship, you put yourself and others around you at risk of contracting COVID-19. Additionally, the unauthorized use of an official government agency's seal (such as HHS or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)) is a crime, and may be punishable under Title 18 United States Code, Section 1017, and other applicable laws.


If you cannot keep an upcoming appointment due to this new protocol, please call us ASAP to let us know that we can cancel your appointment and open it up for another client. 


Our FULLY-VACCINATED staff appreciates your understanding that we are requiring vaccinations for all who enter in order to continue to do what we can to protect us, you, and our community.
