Hairdressers and barbers to reopen on April 12 with SEVEN more weeks until Brits can get a chop

HAIRDRESSERS and barbers are set to re-open from April 12 as the Prime Minister eases the Covid lockdown.

Brits will be able to get their locks chopped in just a few weeks under Boris Johnson's announcement today – but have been warned they should only visit the businesses alone or with their household.

As part of the roadmap released today, hair dressers will be opened as part of the second phase.

The document today states "non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers, salons and close contact services; and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and spas" will all be able to reopen from April 12.

Ministers have previously been pushing to reopen hairdressers and salons to boost the nation's spirits.

They reckon shaggy-haired Brits are getting increasingly fed up that they cannot even go for a trim in the lockdown.

Hairdressers were ordered to shut for four months in the March lockdown, leaving millions desperate to get back to the salon.

When they reopened, Brits flocked to Instagram and Facebook to share snaps of themselves back in the hairdressers chair.

But they were banned again in Tier 4 areas before Christmas, and ordered to close nationally when the current lockdown was announced.

As part of phase two, outdoor hospitality is expected to be able to reopen along with zoos and theme parks – although social distancing will need to be followed.

The substantial meal rule will also be scrapped, with Brits able to get a drink from their pub without having to order food.
