Hairdressers to launch reopening guidelines

A visit to the hairdressers is one of the most missed services of the lockdown. Women, and men, are just dying to get their unruly locks cut, the roots done and just to get that feeling of wellbeing that getting your hair sorted gives you

The Irish Hairdressers Federation (IHF) is to present comprehensive recommendations to Government this week in an effort to open salons earlier. Whenever it happens there is bound to be a rush of clients.

The IHF recommendations cover critical areas of the day-to-day operations of salons and will enable them to reopen in a manner which is safe to both staff and customers.

The recommendations are being developed with the input of a noted health and safety expert and are supported by several other organisations in the hair and beauty sector. It is expected the final document will include over 110 specific recommendations which will help keep salons safe from Covid-19.

The incoming President of the Irish Hairdressers Federation, Danielle Kennedy, said; ‘’Foremost in our thoughts is the wellbeing of our staff and the safety of our customers. The recommendations will radically change how we do our business, which will see the extensive use of PPE and sanitisation procedures.’’

‘’There are 25,000 people employed in our sector and we want to ensure they can come back to work safely. I have been talking to hundreds of hairdressers in the past few weeks and they can’t wait to get back to work because they love their job and they love their customers.

“Our customers come in, they talk with the staff, find out the local news and they all go home feeling great. It’s a vital local service, especially for the elderly’’ Danielle said.

The Irish Hairdressers Federation is the trade association for Irish hairdressers and represents over 400 salon owners nationwide, who in turn employ over 5,000 stylists.
