Hairdressers And Barbers Advised To Keep Talking To A 'Minimum' When Salons Reopen After Lockdown

Hairdressers And Barbers Advised To Keep Talking To A 'Minimum' When Salons Reopen After Lockdown

Hairdressers and barbers have been urged to keep chat to a 'minimum' when salons reopen post lockdown, which will surely come as a blessed relief for those of us who hate small talk.

With salons set to reopen their doors early in July, the National Hair and Beauty Federation has published a list of guidelines to help combat the spread of the coronavirus.

The guidelines suggest that stylists should 'avoid face-to-face discussions with clients'.

Adding: "Discussions about cut, colour and treatments should be made via the mirror while standing behind the client and kept to a minimum. You can lower the risk of infection if you stand or sit side-to-side rather than facing people."

Salons are urged to 'consider offering online consultations to reduce the appointment time,' adding that this could even be done before premises are fully open.

The guidelines also advise cutting out 'walk-in' appointments and encouraging customers not to bring coats and jackets into salons in warm weather as the virus can stay on fabrics for days.

Alongside these guidelines, many salons will be implementing their own new rules and procedures to ensure customers and staff are kept safe.

A spokesperson for the federation told the Sun: "Salons are putting their own rules in place based on common sense."

One such company, Contemporary Salons, which has outlets across the north east and north Yorkshire, told the Sun it will be giving its staff PPE to wear and using 'virtual consultations'.

Managing director Alan Simpson said: "To ensure that all our clients feel confident and relaxed during their visit we have installed protective screens at reception, every two work stations and at the backwash to allow social distancing.

"Staff will also be adhering to the silence rule at the backwash so, not only can guests relax and enjoy their head massage, they can also feel reassured that germs and air particles are kept to a minimum."

As yet, no official date has been given for salons to reopen, but Dominic Raab previously told Sky News' Kay Burley: "From 4 July, at the earliest, we'll look at other sectors and that will include hospitality, but it will also include personal care and people like hairdressers."
