BEAUTY salons including nail shops and tanning salons will be able to reopen on Monday, under the new relaxed lockdown measures.

As hairdressers reopened a week ago, some residents were confused as to why beauty services weren't able to go ahead too.

Despite this, we asked readers whether they think they think it is too early for hair and beauty salons to reopen.

In our news poll, 74 readers voted and 73 per cent of you said that beauty salons should have reopened by now.

27 per cent of people said 'no way' and believe they should still remain shut and so should hairdressers too.

Businesses have praised the move after being closed for more than three months during the lockdown.

Salons will have to adhere to strict safety guidelines, including wearing face shields, masks and sanitising areas.

Beauty salons will also be restricted to certain treatments they can carry out.

The government said no treatments on the face are permitted such as:

  • Face waxing, sugaring or threading services
  • Facial treatments
  • Advanced facial technical (electrical or mechanical)
  • Eyelash treatments
  • Make-up application
  • Dermarolling
  • Dermaplaning
  • Microblading
  • Electrolysis on the face
  • Eyebrow treatments
