    Hey guys
    Anyone know of any hairdressers working from home and travelling to homes during this lockdown?

    There's a pandemic. People are dying. I'm sure you can manage with doing your own hair for a while :rolleyes:

    Hairdressers, barbers and beauticians are not allowed to operate in any premises until April 18th.

    Had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April Fool's day. Hard to believe that you'd welcome a high risk person into your home like that. There's a reason the government shut down hair salons and barber shops

    Wow

    I agree. But actually my neighbour is at it. Small kids and all. Beggars belief. I wonder who she thinks will mind her sick children when she is in hospital. Can’t see many taking in covid-19 infected children to their homes and families. Its not as though she can spend rhe e40 or e50 anywhere soon. Disbelief really.

    Family in the bizz, have been tormented by calls and threats for the past few weeks, since their jobs closed up.

    Same with a friend. It's crazy. But again like with another thread, there's often more than meets the eye. For many (particularly older) the hairdresser is much more than someone who cuts hair. Add therapist, marriage guidance councillor, massage therapist :pac:

    I'm only half joking, and hairdressers will know what that is about!

    They'd be far better off going to qualified therapist, marriage guidance concillor etc. The average age at which a hairdresser left school is reportedly 14.

    They would perhaps, in an ideal world with ideal situations, but people make do, just as they will have to now. Of course people don't see this as an essential service, but anyone who has a friend in the industry will tell you there is more than meets the eye. Both pals I know have a degree and work in family biz or went to it later btw but that seems low average too, however often the case with trades. Massage therapists don't need a degree :pac:
