Gia is back, recording this special episode from home and joined (via Zoom!) by Alycia James, owner of the Color Bar Salon in downtown Scranton, and Alicia Mecca, hairstylist at the Color Bar. The three chat about the impact the coronavirus has had on individuals in the personal care industry, as well as how the stylists stayed engaged with clients during quarantine. They go over the safety precautions they’re taking and what clients can expect when salons reopen. Alycia and Alicia also talk about their journeys into the beauty industry, the comfortable, creative atmosphere of the Color Bar and their must-have products. Before and after the interview, Gia gives a little reminder about the importance of patience while dealing with our new normal and why we must take time for ourselves, especially now.
***Just a note that this episode was recorded before Gov. Tom Wolf announced Lackawanna County would enter the green phase on Friday, June 26.***
