The UK is slowly returning to normality after the Government announced pubs, restaurants, bars and hairdressers will reopen on July 4.
In fact, salons plan to operate longer opening hours with some remaining in business until 9pm.
This is because thousands of Brits who are looking to sort out their hair have already joined waiting lists for appointments.
As the demand is huge, many salons are fully booked into August after closing back in March.
A spokeswoman for trade body the National Hair & Beauty Federation spoke out after the news.
She said: “I don’t have a single report of a salon not opening on July 4. The demand has just been so great.
“Many will be opening longer hours than before to both ensure they meet client demand and will run a shift system for staff to keep them safe and well.”
The Richard Ward Hair and Metro Spa in London has a waiting list of a staggering 2,500 customers, while Hazel & Haydn in Birmingham reports around 2,000.
According to The Sun, a spokesperson for Regis and Supercuts said they will extend salon opening hours as well as opening on Sundays – if they didn’t already do so.
But to protect customers and staff from the virus, salons have to follow a wide range of restrictions to ensure safety comes first.
PPE will be used in salons and there will be perspective screens above washing basins, as well as at the main desk.
Customers won’t be able to receive any drinks and there will be no magazines to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Most salons will also require customers to fill out a document detailing their health information.
In some cases they might be asked about their movements in the week prior to the appointment.
Another way salons hope to reduce the risk is by asking customers to wash their hair before treatment.
And some services, like blow dries, will most likely not be offered in this moment of time.
