Beauty Salons Will Be Able To Offer Eyebrow Threading And Facials From Saturday


At long last we can get our eyebrows done! Now you just have to get an appointment.

Beauty salons will be able to carry out face treatments such as eyebrow threading and facials from Saturday, the Prime Minister announced last night.

Tattoo studios, spas and barbers across England will also be able to offer all ‘close contact’ services, including eyelash treatments, under new guidance.

It comes after earlier concerns about an increase in people with coronavirus but announcing the changes, the Government said ‘the situation now appears to have levelled off’.

Business Secretary Alok Sharma said: ‘From Saturday, salons, spas and other close contact services across England will once again be able to offer all services in a way that is safe for workers and clients.

The plan set out in the Government’s ‘roadmap to recovery’, which was paused for two weeks due to a rise in Covid-19 cases, will now resume from Saturday in England.

Facials, eyelash treatments and the application of make-up will also be permitted alongside Botox injection and beard trimming.

Mr Sharma said allowing these services would ‘give these often small, independent businesses a much-needed boost as we progress with our plan to kickstart the economy to protect jobs and incomes.’  

However, workplaces must still remain Covid-19 secure, with regular cleaning and hand washing taking place.
