Starting November 4, getting a haircut, manicure, wax, and other beauty services in Los Angeles without a COVID-19 vaccination is going to be kind of tough (or at the very least, quite time-consuming). On Wednesday, October 6, the Los Angeles City Council approved a new law that requires proof of vaccination for entry into indoor businesses such as restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms, museums — and, yes, hair and nail salons. 
The law, which goes into effect on November 4, makes exceptions for those who can't get vaccinated due to medical conditions (like an allergy to the vaccine, for example) or religious objections. If a customer will not or cannot get vaccinated, they will have to provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of their appointment time. Some privately owned businesses already enforce this rule independently. 
It's not a dissimilar law to that of New York City, the first city in the United States to require proof of vaccination for indoor dining, entertainment, and fitness venues. San Francisco and some other California cities enacted a similar law not long after in which proof of vaccination is necessary for entry into restaurants, bars, clubs, and "large indoor events."
Allure reached out to a number of salon owners in and outside of Los Angeles for commentary on the city's new vaccination mandate, but all declined to comment or did not respond before the publication of this story.
