A Dutch hairdresser who has continued working during the coronavirus pandemic has gone viral for her bizarre but somewhat genius barrier method which saw her donning an umbrella to separate herself from clients.
The clever stylist who works at Bella Rosa salon in Oss, north of Eindhoven, Holland, created the makeshift shield by cutting out holes for her eyes and arms in an attempt to carry on working while avoiding the spread of COVID-19.
The viral video shows the hilarious moment unfold as the hairdresser continued to work through her clients in the busy hairdressing salon.
But since her hands are vital tools in her field of work, the hairdresser completed her protective attire with a pair of disposable gloves as she snipped away at her clients hair.
She was then forced to create an additional hole so that she could perform eyebrow thready on a second customer[/caption]

Two videos were posted to the salon’s Facebook page with each showing the clever hairdresser hard at work on two different clients.
In the first video she was seen snipping away of the hair of one woman before removing her gloves to efficiently thread another customer’s eyebrows.
The original two clips have together attracted almost 7,000 likes and have been shared almost a hundred-thousand times on Facebook alone, with people online utterly amused by the outrageous protective methods the stylist has implemented.
Some customers poked fun at her actions, with one commenting: “You’re crazy,” while a second joked: “Bunch of lunatics.”
