HAIRDRESSERS WON’T OPEN FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER 7 WEEKS

Published at:

The Government has confirmed that hairdressers will not be allowed to re-open until at least 12th April, meaning Islanders will have to wait another 7 weeks before getting a much-needed chop.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has today (Monday) laid out his roadmap to unlocking Britain and getting life back to normal for millions of people.

Although some restrictions are being lifted from 8th March, such as children being allowed to return to school, many aspects of everyday life are still being kept closed – including barbershops and hair salons.

The current plan is for hairdressers to re-open on 12th April at the earliest, with 1 weeks’ notice. Other non-essential retail is set to open on this date too, as well as beauty salons. At the same time, families will be allowed to go on self-catering holidays and pubs will welcome back punters, but in beer gardens only.

The personal care industry is one of the worst-hit sectors of the economy, with hairdressers, beauty salons and tanning booths closed for most of 2020 and all of 2021 to date.

It is hoped that by 21st June life will be pretty much back to normal for everyone. You’ll never have to grow your hair against your will again!

There has been no indication when social distancing and mask-wearing will be scrapped, indicating that such measures may be in place for most of 2021.

What I want to know is how have all the people been getting their hair cuts with the current lock downs. Not everyone is living with a hair dresser. But seem to be a lot with well groomed hair. After a month mine is a right old mess.

It doesn’t worry me, but as Hursts are closed it’s difficult to stock up on ‘Mansion’ polish.
