WHAT IS A SALON CLIENT INTAKE FORM?
We should all be familiar with the waxing consultation form and wise enough to evolve it to fit our current climate in the wake of COVID-19. A classic intake form goes through questions and information to determine if it’s safe for your clients to receive certain services you provide. For example, perhaps a client is taking a medication that doesn’t allow the use of hard wax, soft wax, or any kind of body wax. In this case, you would recommend a different service or try to reschedule waxing until they’ve ceased using that medication.
Starpil offers unique wax formulas created to meet the needs of people with different skin and hair types. If you have questions about which waxes you should have at your wax salon, click here to find your wax.
The new type of esthetician client intake form will consist of all of the classic questions but add questions and information regarding COVID-19 exposure. Your wax salon or esthetics business can achieve a few things by updating intake forms.

LETTING CLIENTS KNOW ABOUT THE CHANGES
Updating intake forms should include making them available to be filled out online before your clients can book with you. It might be wise to have a dedicated COVID-19 information page on your website, a detailed newsletter, or social media posts that give your clients a heads-up on all of your new protocol. You can even link your new intake form there.
Here is an example of how to introduce your new salon protocol before booking.
