The Prime Minister has announced that personal care services including hair and beauty can resume on Wednesday 2nd December and will not be forced to close under any of the tier levels.
.
Under the previous three-tier system, the rules meant that salons could continue to operate in a Covid-secure manner in Tiers 1 and 2, but had to close in Tier 3 areas if local authorities deemed it necessary. However, the new measures will allow personal care services to stay open in all tier levels. 
.
This is great news for the beauty industry and along with the reopening of retail settings will provide a much needed boost to the beauty sector before Christmas.
