Hairdressers and barbers across the country are welcoming back clients who might be returning with dodgy home haircuts or dye jobs as they reopen for the first time since lockdown began.
In the First Minister’s announcement last Thursday, Ms Sturgeon announced that hairdressers and barbers could reopen with enhanced safety measures in place such as face coverings, floor markings and perspex screens.
Huge queues were seen outside barbers across Edinburgh and the Lothians this morning as some waited on their first hair cut in months.
