HAIRDRESSING salons plan to operate longer opening hours when they finally welcome back customers from July 4.
It comes as thousands of Brits looking to tame their manes have joined waiting lists for appointments.
Hairdressers were forced to close in March due to the coronavirus crisis, but on Tuesday Boris Johnson gave them the green light to reopen in July.
And demand is huge, with many salons already fully booked into August and others have waiting lists of more than 2,500 people.
A spokesperson for the National Hair & Beauty Federation, which represents more than 5,000 salons, said: “I don’t have a single report of a salon not opening on July 4.
“The demand has just been so great.”
