Boris Johnson has today announced the next easing of restrictions in England, which will take effect from Saturday 4th July.
With the UK’s COVID Alert level now reduced from 4 to 3, the Prime Minister has announced that although all steps are conditional, where it is not possible to stay 2 metres apart, 1 metre or more should be observed.
We welcome the news that barbers and hairdressers will also be able to reopen from the 4th July, with appropriate precautions in place, including the use of visors.
After a long, difficult wait, as of next Saturday, barbershops will be able to reopen their doors and welcome clients back to the chair. The Prime Minister said he will publish COVID secure guidelines for all sectors that are able to reopen.
While no further guidelines have yet been published regarding best practice, we expect to receive these in the coming days and will keep you up to date as and when we receive them.

Please note, this announcement covers barbershops in England and does not apply to shops in Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
