To some, cutting hair is a necessity but during this pandemic, we do feel that it is something we don’t really need. Imagine the amount of contact you will have, even if you are wearing gloves and a mask. The hair that is cut, the sweat, the scissors used; oh, so many contact points that we need to worry about!

🚨PSA: Due to the coronavirus TaperNation will only be accepting clients that are ONLY receiving a service until further notice… SO if your not receiving a service … don’t come !!
