However, there are likely to be several strict new rules in place which you should abide by when you go.
Businesses will look different when they reopen though, with firms told to meet Covid-19 secure guidelines, such as limiting customer numbers and ensuring people can safely social distance. You should:
- Book before you go
- Stay apart from other customers
- Wear a mask or other PPE if you are told to
- Leave your contact details to be tracked if there’s an outbreak at the venue
- Expect to be banned from taking food or drink inside
And people should be aware that face-to-face treatments such as facials, eyebrow threading, and dermarolling are still off the cards.
Beard trims, though, are allowed, as that can be done from the side.
