As for Covid-19 security protocols, the salon will maintain reduced capacity and employees will check guests’ temperatures upon arrival. Face masks and hand sanitizer will be provided free of charge. Clients will be required to wear masks and separation screens will be used to divide the styling stations.
The general public will have to wait a few weeks before they can get an Amazon headset for themselves. Initially, the salon will only be open to employees of the company. Amazon currently has no plans to open other locations, according to a company press release.
The London show is the latest example of Amazon’s growing brick and mortar footprint. The e-commerce giant currently operates dozens of cashier-free convenience stores Amazon Go, 4-star Amazon general store stores, and around 500 Whole Foods outlets. Amazon also recently opened several Amazon Fresh stores in London, as well as a cashless grocery store.
