Salons and barber shops in Bahrain are going to reopen, it has been announced.
From Wednesday May 27, you’ll be able to get a haircut, but walk-in appointments are not permitted and some services are temporarily banned.
There will also be a number of restrictions staff and customers have to follow in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
These include maintaining a distance of two metres between customers, limiting the number of workers inside the building, and assigning staff to sterilise and disinfect surfaces continually.
Waiting areas will also remain closed, and magazines or newspapers and other objects that could be shared by customers will be removed.
Employees must wear masks, face shields, gloves and disposable PPE gowns, while customers must wear gloves and face masks, unless a service requires their removal.
Hair dryers will no longer be used, and treatments including facials, threading, microblading, massages and semi-permanent eyelashes will not be permitted.
