HAIRDRESSERS and barbers are set to re-open in mid-April as the Prime Minister eases the Covid lockdown in a four-stage roadmap.
Boris Johnson will scrap the national stay-at-home order as the Rule of Six returns late next month.
Those desperate for a haircut have to wait at least seven weeks for salons to reopen.
They will be unlocked around April 12 to 19 along with non-essential shops, while restaurants and pubs will be able to serve customers outdoors.
The rest of the restrictions will be eased in May and June with inside mixing and drinking — with the hope of normality by July, when every adult will have been offered a Covid jab first dose.
Last night the PM said: “Our decisions will be made on the latest data at every step.
“We will be cautious about this approach so that we do not undo the progress we have achieved so far and the sacrifices each and every one of you has made to keep yourself and others safe.
“We have therefore set four key tests which must be met before we can move through each step of the plan. I’ll be setting out a roadmap to bring us out of lockdown cautiously.”
