If you watched Boris Johnson’s 10th May announcement, you’ll know that the latest slightly-relaxed government measures dictate that hairdressing salons won’t open again until 4th July at the very earliest.
What will the eventual easing of lockdown restrictions mean for the hair industry? Well, first of all, there’s a backlog of missed appointments and ‘lockdown hair’ to remedy. Added to this, there’s the recently launched National Hair Sunday campaign so priority may be given initially to NHS staff seeking hair treatments.
To elaborate, National Hair Sunday has been thought up by Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko from TV’s Real Housewives of Cheshire series. As reported on the BBC website, the duo are calling on salons to join forces in a united effort to support our national heroes – NHS workers – by promising free hairdressing on the first Sunday post lockdown.
Apparently, thousands of salons UK-wide have signed up to National Hair Sunday in order to show their appreciation for the people saving our lives and risking their own during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the likes of the average woman and man on the street (that’s us, by the way!), we’ll just have to wait a little longer to book those sought-after salon slots when July approaches.
As with any visit to the hairdresser’s, apply caution if you’re undergoing chemical or heat treatments as hair and scalp damage can be caused by general lack of care and attention.
