In light of the recent exposures in the HRM, we want to reassure you of the protocols we have in place to keep you safe while you are with us. We are in regular contact with The Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia and we update protocols as directed by CANS and Nova Scotia's Chief Public Officer of Health, Dr Robert Strang.

We have made changes to the physical salon and changes to us-we will all be wearing masks-but we hope that who we still are at Thumpers salon will shine through in other familiar ways.

Changes to the salon include going from 22 chairs to 14 to facilitate more space for physical distancing to keep you, our valued clients, your families, us and our families safe. Thumpers is very fortunate to have 2500 square feet of space to spread out in. We are taking additional sanitation steps to our already high standards and wanted to let you know of other changes to expect.

We use PRE-empt sanitation spray and wipes for our staff to sanitize our sinks, our stations and our bathroom between every client. Our cleaner Kevin comes in every evening after the last client has left. Kevin wipes everything down.

Masks are required at all times while you are with us. It does not matter what type of mask you wear, as long as it covers your nose and mouth effectively. If you do not have a mask we will provide one to you for a nominal fee. Mingle masks or Z masks are NOT compliant with these protocols.

To facilitate physical distancing we can only have two guests in our reception area at one time. If we have two already, please wait outside and we will come to get you.

Please wash your hands when you first enter the salon, our normal beverage station will now be a hand washing station.

Please answer the following questions with honesty.

Have you come into contact with anyone suspected of Covid-19 in the last two weeks?

Have you been to any of the HRM exposure sites or to an HRM bar after 10PM?

Have you been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last two weeks?

Please reschedule your appointment if you answer yes to any of the above.

Please also reschedule your appointment if you have experienced the following symptoms or circumstances:

New Cough

Runny nose

Fever above 38 degrees Celsius


Muscle pains

Shortness of breath.

Come alone to your appointment please. Children must be old enough to come into the salon alone and be able to follow our rules while they are with us.

At this time we cannot accept cash for payments. We do accept all major debit and credit cards. Thank you for your understanding.

We hope that soon we will be able to relax some of these precautions again as Dr Strang directs.

Contactless Curb Side Pickup for retail purchases is available for your product orders. If you need product, please do not hesitate to go to our online shop at and order there or give us a call at 902 429 4900 and we will be so happy to help. Give us a call when you are outside and we will run your order out to your car. You will of course be able to buy retail from us when you are with us as normal.

We ask that as members of the Thumpers family, please stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you. We're all in this together.
