Salons in Mumbai opened up on June 28 after a lockdown of three months, with the consent of the Maharashtra Government. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray gave his nod on June 25th to allow salons, barber shops and beauty parlours to re-open with a strict commitment to following standard operating procedures on hygiene and cleanliness. “The use of sanitizers and face-masks will be mandatory for the staff and customers. Similarly, the towel used for one customer shall not be used for others,” he added. Basis these guidelines, the salons are allowed to offer services including haircut, waxing, threading, hair dyeing and have excluded skin-related services. It is also mandatory for all the salon staff to wear personal protective gear including gloves and aprons.
