I’m planning my first visit back to the hair salon next week after securing an appointment with my local stylist. My hair is in need of some TLC, as it’s been a long five months since I’ve had it professionally cut.
Since the lockdown, we have all adapted our way of life to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. So inevitably the first visit back to the hairdressers will be a different experience than before.
So what has changed and what do I need to prepare for?
5 things to know before visiting the hair salon after COVID 19
