HALES CORNERS — Different from grocery stores, restaurants, and other businesses deemed essential, it's been a long wait to reopen for Legacy Salon and Spa.
"We're so happy to reopen. It's been stressful, it's been confusing, but all you can do is look at the positives and try to show that positivity to your staff because they look to you for that comfort," Christine Becerra, manager at Legacy, said.

Closed from early March to late May, Christina's time was spent thinking of ways to reopen the salon safely. Eventually, the Legacy team installed partitions between each station, made private rooms, and set up a waiting station outside.
"To us, it seemed like common sense, because we are trying to keep everyone 6-feet apart. So to comply with restrictions of one service provider per guest inside the salon, we couldn't have a slew of people waiting in the lobby all at the same time," Becerra said.
Eager to shake off the "quarantine blues," Christina said Legacy staff and clients are extremely happy to reunite.
"People are so happy to walk through the door, they were happy before but now they are really happy. So many of them their roots are grown out or their nails are chipped," Becerra said.
With every protocol in place from face shields to UV lights for disinfecting, Legacy's mission is to safely deliver whatever salon and spa service you may be looking for.
"We want to try and not discount the stress that people are going through. There is lots going on right now. People are really sad. They are depressed. We try to look and find a way to put the light back in their day," Becerra said.
