LATHAM - You may notice some more services offered at the salon. The state has allowed estheticians and makeup artists to get back to work.

At Rumors in Latham, their clients are eager to get their skin taken care of. While they have been cutting and coloring hair since the end of May, the spa has been closed.


Governor Andrew Cuomo released guidelines Friday for estheticians and makeup artists to get back to work.

Facials are something many are eager for since wearing a mask everywhere can get irritating.

As part of guidelines, guests will wait in their car for their appointment. They can then change into a robe in the locker room and then they'll be brought to their room.

Once in the room, they can remove their masks. Only the service provider will have PPE.

Estheticians also have to show a negative COVID test before returning to work.

The spa accounts for about 30% of Rumors' business.

While waiting for the new guidelines, they added an organic, gluten-free product line to help clients who hadn't been able to get their normal facial.

Appointments are almost all booked for the salon.
