Hairdressers have been given the go ahead to reopen after months of being closed as Nicola Sturgeon announces Scotland is ready to enter phase three of exiting lockdown.
Customers can wave goodbye to those split ends and questionable family haircuts and step back into professional salons once again from Wednesday, July 15.
During her daily briefing, Nicola Sturgeon said while “many of us are looking forward to our first non-amateur haircut in months”, people must still be cautious and stick to social distancing rules.
Guidance on enhanced hygiene measures and safety for hairdressers will be published later this week, according to Ms Sturgeon, ahead of when they are free to resume business.
The announcement comes as the first minister said further restrictions can be lifted from Friday, July 10 as the country enters phase three, and the two metre rule can be relaxed in some sectors.
She reminded people that face coverings are mandatory from tomorrow and police action will be taken against those who do not comply.
