When do hairdressers open? What lockdown roadmap means for barbers and hair salons reopening in England – iNews

There are a lot of things we miss about pre-lockdown life that we probably took for granted including going to the pub after work or starting the weekend off with a swim at the local pool.
High up that list for many will be trips to the hairdresser or barber.
Covid restrictions have forced us to get creative when it comes to keeping our hair in check, with most people going one of two ways – let it grow or attempt an audacious home-style.
But how long will we have to wait to get a professional hairdo? Here is everything you need to know.
Boris Johnson unveiled the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, which will see restrictions lifted in four stages.
Lockdown is being lifted in four steps, with the first step split into two major milestone dates, on 8 and 29 March, and will be England-wide, with no return to the regional tiered system.
The first step saw the reopening of schools as well as outdoor after school sports and activities from Monday 8 March.
Two people from different households were also allowed to socialise in a park or other public outdoor space by having a coffee or picnic – activities not currently permitted under the outside exercise rule.
From 29 March, the Rule of Six returned outdoors, in time for the start of the Easter school holidays, with a major easing of the limits on social contact, underlining that the risk of transmission outside is significantly lower than indoors.
Hairdressers and other personal care services returning under step two of the roadmap, on Monday 12 April.
Other outdoor settings including zoos and theme parks will also reopen at the same time. While pubs, restaurants and cafes will be able to serve food and drinks outdoors to groups of six or from two households
The timetable is dependent on four tests being met.
In an announcement on Monday 5 April, the Prime Minister confirmed that step two could proceed as planned a week later.
Step 1
Step 2From 12 April
Step 3From 17 May 
Step 4From 21 June
