UK: Hair salon opens at midnight for first post-lockdown clients

United Kingdom, London
July 4, 2020 at 03:02 GMT -00:00 · Published

A hair salon in London opened at the stroke of midnight on Saturday, as hairdressers and barbers were allowed to reopen on July 4, amid an easing of the lockdown.

The Tusk hair salon located in Camden welcomed its first customers who were eager to get a post-lockdown haircut, despite the unusual opening hour.

"I couldn't wait so I can't even imagine what other people would be like. Because I think my hair could be worse at this point but I really want [a haircut]," said Leah, a client.

Hygiene and safety precautions were taken at the salon, with hand sanitiser and face shields.

Normal life is slowly resuming in England, with pubs and restaurants also reopening on July 4.
