Attn: Mayor London Breed,

Outdoor salon services don’t make sense on the streets of San Francisco. San Francisco salons need to be allowed to reopen safely indoors per Governor Newsom's "Blueprint for a Safer Economy." 

Hair Stylists and Barbers have extensive training in infection control and disinfection procedures. We are trained and licensed to protect public health, safety and welfare by keeping a Sanitary Maintenance Area (SMA) for every client, just like a dentist or doctor’s office. Doctors, chiropractors and dentists are not required to work outdoors. Salon professionals shouldn't be treated differently. 

Ordering us to operate outdoors - outside a clean, safe, and well ventilated space with running water - seriously compromises our ability to keep our SMAs clean, sanitize our tools, control flying hair picked up by the breeze, police the areas around us, and make a decent living. 

To provide safe and clean services while making a decent living, salon professionals need exclusive access to hot and cold running water, cleanable surfaces and disinfectants, shampoo and detergents, proper disposal of waste and chemicals, and control of the space in which they work.

I implore you to review the guidance set forth by The California Department of Consumer Affairs, The California Department of Public Health, and The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology on salon modifications to protect ourselves and the public from the spread of Covid19. We have had plenty of time to implement these guidelines. It's time for us to get back to work so that we can be part of the solution to rebuilding the economy and the social fabric of our community. 

On behalf of all the struggling salons, hair stylists, and barbers in this city, I thank you for taking immediate action to remedy this situation.

With respect and gratitude,

Jaiya Alamia, The Organic Stylist
