Salisbury BID is encouraging the local community to show their support for our city centre hairdressers by booking an appointment and following the guidelines these businesses have put in place.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed hairdressers can reopen from Saturday 4th July.
The Government has introduced these changes to lockdown measures in a bid to open more businesses and get the economy moving; positive news when combined with the knowledge that the number of COVID-19 cases have been encouragingly low in the Salisbury area.

What to expect when visiting a hairdresser
Customers can expect to see changes when visiting the hairdressers and the BID is asking customers to be understanding and patient with staff while they adapt to the new ways of working.
Before reopening, hairdressers must follow strict COVID Secure guidelines to reduce the risk of transmission for staff and customers alike.
Hairdressers, along with other close contact services, have been told they must keep temporary contact details and records of all customers for 21 days in case there is an outbreak. This is to support the NHS Test and Trace service. Customers can be contacted if they’ve been in close contact with an infected individual.
Ellie Smith, Style Director of Smith England on the High Street, is looking forward to reopening and said: “Me and my amazing team are more than ready to come back to work and do what we love doing. I’m confident we’ve got the right procedures in place to ensure our clients and staff are protected. The support from our loyal customers has been overwhelming and we can’t wait to see them back in our salon again.”
Whilst hairdressers are preparing to reopen, beauty salons are not permitted to reopen yet and must wait for confirmation from Government.
