This letter comes after a fragmented reopening of the sector in the summer, in which hair and beauty were split and certain treatments and services were prohibited for prolonged period after the main lockdown had ended, without any medical evidence to support the decision.
also been sent to: The Rt. Hon Michael Gove MP at the Cabinet Office; the Rt. Hon Alok Sharma MP Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS); and Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
“The simple fact is that the hair and beauty industry contributes only “up to 0.05%” to the R Rate, as stated by their own SAGE advisors. With the amount of money salons and barbers have spent to prove themselves to be ‘COVID secure’ and the hoops they have jumped through within the governments guidance in order to welcome back clients – these businesses must be given the chance to operate and recover to be the economically viable businesses they were before the pandemic.”
Richard Lambert, Chief Executive, National Hair & Beauty Federation
