How to shoot in a room full of mirrors?

I got a upcoming shoot tomorrow (or in two days) where I have to shoot in a hair saloon full of mirrors. I am shooting with a Ronin and my original plan was to walk between these small aisles that they have. But I am a little bit worried about reflections in the mirrors as every aisle have their own little mirror. How can I solve this without too much trouble?

Take a longer lens (at least 35mm, better 50mm), so your FOV isn't to wide and you won't see the camera in the cornors of the image if you're shooting a mirror.

Also be aware of every mirror on location. Plan every shot exactly and try out different angles from your camera to the mirrors so that you know how to set the camera perfectly to shot.

I am focusing on the architecture of a school that i am shooting and the hair saloon is just one room at the school. So I am planning to shoot wide... But ill plan my shot carefully and someone on reddit gave me the tip to dress to match the walls.

If it is a documentary then what is the worry?
Just make sure you record this intentionally and don't forget to look good on camera!
