What going to the hairdressers will be like when they reopen

We weren’t just going to our local for a haircut anymore, we were going in for the way they brewed their organic coffee just so, the facials that left our faces a glow, that head massage which made everything okay again, the secret smoothie recipe, an hour flicking through our favourite glossy mags, and thosepedicures! ‘We are, of course, currently waiting for official government guidelines, but from making sure there is as little contact as possible, spreading out appointment slots, removing half the chairs, wearing full PPE and not cutting dry hair, and reducing the number of blowdries, there are measures we are starting to discuss,’ agrees celebrity stylist and owner of the West Londonsalon, Josh Wood. Layering and fringes will be up for the chop unless hairdressers can think of new ways to do them which don’t involve standing in front of their clients - another reason why the salons innovative enough to add beauty offerings such as facials and threading to their extra curricular menus, are nowtaking them off. Many of us miss the profound relationship we have with our salon and stylist (the average British woman stays longer with her hairdresser than her husband apparently).
