Masks optional at Azana Salon and Spa
Brookfield salons are making a variety of decisions about their mask policies going forward.

With the change in Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and state guidelines, masks are now optional at Azana Salon and Spa, the owner told WISN 12 Friday night.
They are no longer asking asking for proof of vaccination.
The Neroli Salon and Spa locations in the area are keeping their mask requirements, saying customers actually favor them.

Other salons are trying to walk the fine line of satisfying customers on both sides of a polarizing issue.
“As a business owner, I’m not going to ask my clients or staff to prove that they’ve been vaccinated. I just don’t. It feels a little intrusive to ask a client that. That’s just my opinion,” Carenza salon owner Jan Seybold said.

Seybold said once Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance changed, and businesses began making masks optional, she decided to keep sanitation protocols in place but make masks a choice.
“We chose mask optional on Monday, and we didn’t create a big fanfare about it. When clients walked in and saw that it was mask-optional, I would say 99% of them were like, ‘freedom,'” Seybold said.
But not everywhere.
“We did decide to stick with all of our protocols,” Neroli general manager Erin Meyer said.

Neroli Salon and Spa is keeping their mask requirement for staff and clients in place.
“Both for my safety and for theirs as a mutual respect sort of thing,” Neroli barber Caleb Hunnicutt said.
Meyer said their mask requirement is a selling point.

“At this time, I do not think it’s a risk to have our mask mandate in place. In fact, I think guests really value our emphasis on strong sanitation and safety,” she said.
Neroli said like any business, they’re always evaluating the best experience for their customers, but right now, that’s a mask requirement.
