When large scale businesses like supermarkets, big hardware stores & furniture outlets Can stay open with thousands of people queuing and in close proximity on a daily basis, then surely a small business with a handful of visitors each day are no more at risk of causing cross infection of Covid-19.

Hairdressers, barbers and beauty salons could reopen under stricter measures benefiting the public and economically supporting these small businesses at a time of great difficulty.

Government Response

Beauty salons across England will be able to reopen safely from Monday 13 July. We thank members of this industry and their customers for their patience in this difficult time.


Beauty salons across England will be able to reopen safely from Monday 13 July under new government plans, announced 9 July.

Updated COVID-19 secure guidance sets out the measures that those providing close contact services should follow to protect staff and customers. Only services that do not involve work in the highest risk zone – directly in front of the face – should be made available to clients. This means that treatments such as face waxing, eyelash treatments, make-up application and facial treatments, should not be provided until government advice changes, due to the much greater risk of transmission.

Enabling these often small, independent businesses to reopen is yet another step in our plan to kickstart the economy to support jobs and incomes across the country.

Businesses offering close contact services may find the COVID-19 secure Close Contact Services Guidance useful to prepare for reopening. The guidance can be found here: www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/close-contact-services. Further business support can also be found here: www.gov.uk/coronavirus/business-support.

We thank members of this industry and their customers for their patience in this difficult time.
