British Beauty Council 1200

Following some uncertainty regarding the reopening of hair and beauty businesses after the coronavirus peak, the British Beauty Council has published the following via Instagram in a post on Friday 5 June:

“We can now confirm that as officially communicated by BEIS (Dept for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy), the government is currently advising that:

1. They do not anticipate mobile and salon-based hair and beauty businesses, including nails, brows and lashes, facials, body treatments and massage, makeup, waxing and holistic therapy services, opening before Phase 3. On the Prime Minister’s road map, this is 4 July at the earliest.

2. As of 15 June, click and collect can be used by these businesses to sell products as long as customers order in advance and do not enter the premises.

The British Beauty Council finishes the post with: “We encourage all hair and beauty businesses to remain closed at this time and to remain on track for 4 July, subject to further government announcements.”
