Beauty Salons And Nail Bars To Reopen On July 13, But No Treatments On The Face Allowed


Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, said in a briefing on Thursday 9 July, “Having allowed hairdressers to reopen, beauticians, tattooists, spas, tanning salons and other close contact services can now do the same, I am pleased to say, from Monday.”

The government has announced that beauty services, including manicures and body massages will be allowed to resume from Monday 13 July. However, treatments involving touching of the face – such as facials and eyebrow threading – are still under restrictions. 

Beauty services not resuming from 13 July

No treatments on the face will be permitted. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Face waxing, sugaring or threading services
  • Facial treatments
  • Advanced facial technical (electrical or mechanical) 
  • Eyelash treatments
  • Make-up application
  • Dermarolling
  • Dermaplaning
  • Microblading
  • Electrolysis on the face
  • Eyebrow treatments

The news will come as a relief to many beauty professionals up and down the country who have been preparing for the reopening of their businesses for weeks.
