Unpolished stars Lexi Martone and her sister Bria Martone finally can return to running their salon. The sisters closed Salon Martone back in March when the Coronavirus pandemic forced them and other non-essential businesses to close. Then like most of the country, they followed safer at-home instructions and began to quarantine. Now finally New York has loosened many of their restrictions. So the sisters can once again get back to doing what they love in person.
Unpolished fans should also be happy. The family announced on social media that they are now filming their popular reality show. Here’s what we know about how the salon now must operate in the COVID -19 world and what we will see when season 2 of Unpolished returns to TLC’s schedule.
Unpolished: Bria Martone Back To Work – Lexi Martone Still Sidelined
Unpolished celeb Bria Martone is back seeing clients at Salon Martone as of June 10. The talented hairdresser is finally able to get back to doing what she loves. However, the salon will run much differently now in the COVID-19 environment. Salon employees and clients must wear masks and they must also wait in their cars until they’re called in for their appointment. Clients are requested to bring in as little personal items as possible and no food or drinks are allowed. Additionally, the staff at Salon Martone asks their clients to refrain from touching and hugging them as an extra precaution. They love their clients but want to assure they are doing everything to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Unfortunately, Unpolished’s Lexi Martone is not able to see clients yet. New York has not cleared nail salons to open. So for now at Salon Martone, the only services they offer are for hair styling and coloring. Hopefully, soon the governor of New York will expand openings to include nail salons. Until then Lexi will likely just help her mom, Jennifer Martone run the salon from a business perspective.
Season 2 Now In Production
Fans of Unpolished are certainly excited to learn the Martone’s are now filming its second season. Season 1 was a limited run season with only six episodes. However, fans fell in love with Lexi’s extraordinary and over the top nail creations and Bria’s flair for hair. Then of course the family is chock full of bold personalities. So now with a new season in the works hopefully TLC will expand the season to ten or more episodes. Fans want more of this boisterous family on their TV screens.
Unpolished wrapped it’s first run with the engagement of Lexi Martone to longtime boyfriend Matt Mancuso. Lots have happened for the Martone family since season one ended. The family lost its patriarch “Big Mike” Martone last month amid the Coronavirus pandemic. So now the family is left to move forward without the man they loved so much.
Unpolished: Bria Martone’s Wedding Filmed For Series
Unpolished is now an in production for its second season. According to reports, the salon owners Bria and Lexi Martone will film throughout the summer. However, filming will likely continue to the fall to include Bria’s wedding to her fiance Mike Mancuso. So only the salon will be effected through the summer and likely production then moves to the Martone’s residence.
However, there’s a chance Bria and Mike will reschedule their wedding date. Large gatherings are still not allowed in New York. Plus there’s the bittersweet reality that Bria’s dad will not be there to walk her down the aisle.
