1. “If you wear glasses, rub some shaving cream on them and then wipe them off—don’t wash them—and they will be fog free (a client’s advice to me).” – @hairby_shellydawn


2. “This is my second week back to work in central New York. We have to wear a mask and shield. Didn’t think I could do it but a customer bought me a fan I wear around my neck, and it blows upward. It’s been a lifesaver! I heard Home Depot has them.” – Agnes Weatherbee 


3. “Keep the AC lower so everyone is comfortable in masks…And get an air purifier for your station to help with extra cleaning chemicals. I have a UV box to sterilize my (or my client’s) phone and my scissors/combs/clips between services and it works well.” – Rachel Lynn Carr

4.One of my clients (who is a nurse) brought me in three headbands with buttons on the sides to attach the elastic from the mask on. This is amazing for two reasons: One, it saves your ears from the mask and two, it keeps your hair out of your face so you don’t touch it.” Heather Burch


5. “Drink a lot of water, suck on menthol cough drops and get outside as much as possible between clients. Sounds bad, but it’s really not too bad after a few days. You get into a routine.” – Heather Debellis


6. “If you do nails and get nail polish on the shield DO NOT use acetone to clean it off. I melted my face shield the first day. 🙃” – @_jmommy


7. “We’ve been wearing shields upside down! Sooo much better.” – Summer Reaves



8.Put a little eucalyptus essential oil on your mask. It will feel cooler and seem like you’re getting fresher air.” Michelle Miller


9.I have been using a facial toner on my face throughout the day. Wearing a mask for an 8+ hour shift will make you break out.” Adrianne Bowers 


10.Couple things I did: I’m using disposable capes for clients and disposable aprons for me. Since the capes were hard to get, I went to the dollar store and bought plastic table clothes and cut them in half. Works good.” Tracy Smith
