PPE, Safety and Cleaning Equipment to Help Hair Salons Prepare for Reopening

PPE safety cleaning equipment

Some major brands have created PPE, safety and cleaning equipment to help hair salons protect their staff and clients against coronavirus when they are allowed to reopen.

Most UK hair salons are preparing to reopen from 4 July onwards if the UK Government’s phased plan and the ‘r’ rate for coronavirus deems it safe to do so. Hair salons, freelancers and mobile hair businesses will need PPE, safety and cleaning equipment to protect staff and clients during post-lockdown.

There are no official Government guidelines to explain the specific protective steps that professional hair businesses will need to take to carry out appointments safely, however several useful back to work guides have been released by industry associations that are in close contact with the UK Government.

Many of these guides suggest additional equipment will be useful to protect both staff and clients from airborne germs.

Currently hair salons are free to use their own judgement on the measures necessary but many are choosing to purchase masks, screens and additional cleaning equipment.
