According to the government’s 50-page plan for easing the lockdown that Boris Johnson unveiled this week, hair salons won’t be able to open up again until the ‘late summer’. And Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told Sky’s Kay Burley that salons will not be opening until July 4 “at the very earliest”.
“Obviously the proximity [within salons]… is something where we just don’t think we are ready yet, given where we are with the virus,” he said.
