Pine: Salons are united and ready to open with modifications

News Release from Councilmember Kym Pine, May 15, 2020

HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I — Leading salon industry panelists demonstrated today in a live online forum hosted by Honolulu City Councilmember Kym Pine, that they are ready to open for business. All who are licensed by the State of Hawai‘i Board Of Barbering and Cosmetology are well-trained in sanitation, disinfection and other cleanliness practices.

“I believe that salons are safe, one of the safest businesses and they are prepared to reopen their businesses now. I believe that as an industry, they have been treated unfairly. I believe they are more than well-qualified to keep themselves, their employees and their clients, safe,” said Pine, chair of the Council Committee on Business, Economic Development and Tourism.

“We are an industry of appointments, we can control our occupancy,” said forum co-host Adiel Cline, owner of Salon 253 on Maui and a founder of the Hawaii Salons Forum. She and Joe Randazzo, principal of J Salon and Phil's Barber Shop, as well as other industry members, have drafted unified guidelines for safe operations and have submitted them to the State Administration via Lt. Governor Josh Green, for consideration.

Pine calls on all salon owners, working cosmetology professionals and barbers to contact the Governor’s office and their respective mayors’ offices to allow their businesses to reopen. “The owners need to be able to reopen to feed their families and so their employees and independent contractors can get back to work and feed their families,” Pine said.

A listing of participating panelists appears below.

The entire forum can be viewed on Councilmember Pine’s Facebook page:
