Allow the beauty industry to open up along with Hair salons on 15th July

Allow the beauty industry to open up along with Hair salons on 15th July

Allow the beauty industry in the Highlands of Scotland to open along with Hair Salons on 15th of July 2020 with appropriate PPE and infection control measures in place. Many self-employed people and small businesses are on the brink of going under. In comparison to pubs opening, there is far less risk as experienced and qualified beauticians ensure all tools and environment are sanitised routinely. Masks/shields can be worn.

The spread of Covid has been far different in the Highlands of Scotland in comparison to other, more densely populated areas of Scotland. The risk has been far less. Opening up beauty salons will give local economy a much needed boost.

Why is this important?

Many self-employed people and small businesses are on the brink of going under. 4 months without any income has been devastating for many. It cannot be sustained for much longer.

Reasons for signing

  • Because it’s crazy to have pubs and restaurants open - where little to no social distancing will occur - when businesses such as beauty salons can well prepare with PPE and measures to stop the spread. Most are owned by small business owners and the longer this continues the more people will be in financial devastation, businesses will go under and more and more people in this industry will be unemployed.
  • Theres more danger in opening pubs than beauty salons. 1 to 1 only with ppe you don't have that in pubs!!
  • I am a nail technician and believe that working on someone's clean washed hands or feet while my client and I both wear a mask is safer than a hairdresser being inches away from someone's face who cant wait a mask to have their hair washed or a barber shaving someone's face!
