Had my first post-lockdown haircut today. I'm having a set of cushions stuffed with the cuttings.
My hairdresser has done a grand job with all the safety measures - perspex screen on the front desk, hand sanitizer to be used as soon as you go in, sign-in book with contact details, full wipe-down and clean of the washbasins after every use, sanitising of the chairs after each use, sanitising of all scissors and clippers practically every 5 minutes, all the stylists wearing full face visors. Felt reassured and quite safe. And boy, it feels good to be shorn !
Liz, the business owner, has only put her prices up by 3 quid to cover the cost of all the safety equipment - disposable single use covers, and so on.
So, thus far, so good with the transition to the "new normal". Still very wary of restaurants, though, and pubs are still right out. But none too shabby.
