UK news When hairdressers can reopen according to roadmap out of lockdown last minute news
MetiNews.Com - Boris Johnson was “glad to say” hairdressers would be reopening in the second step of his roadmap
Breaking News ! Boris Johnson unveiled the government’s roadmap out of lockdown yesterday, February 22, with four key stages for reopening sectors of society. In recognition of “how people yearn to see friends and family,” there is an emphasis on safe socialising: step one will see six people or two households allowed to meet outdoors by the end of March. In early April, non-essential shops and personal care will open under step two of the plan. While loved ones are undoubtedly uppermost in people’s minds, many are hotly anticipating the return of one “personal care” service in particular: that of hairdressers. In a nod to how sorely the nation has been missing its barbers and hair stylists, Mr Johnson said he was “glad to say” hairdressers would be reopening on April 12, as well as nail salons.
