The announcement from the PM means Brits will no longer have to put up with dodgy DIY home haircuts.

Hairdressers have been shut throughout the third lockdown in England, which started on January 5.

Before that, hair-cutting studios were also told to shut in Tier 4 areas as part of the tier system.

When will hairdressers and barbers reopen?

Hairdressers and barbers will reopen from April 12 as part of the roadmap out of lockdown.

Both were forced to shut during the first lockdown in March 2020 and were among the last to reopen in July 2020.

There was a second four-week shutdown in November that lasted until December 2.

When hairdressers reopen, it is likely that not every station in the salon will be used, with hairdressers working at every other station to maintain a two-metre distance between them.

The British Beauty Council recommends that staff wear gloves, masks and gowns, while customers will also likely have to wear masks.

What are the guidelines for hairdressers?
