Government Announcement July 9th 2020

Jul 9, 2020

Today the government announced that beauty services can resume as of the 13th of July 2020. However this does not include those services that work in the highest risk zone, so no treatments on the face will be permitted.

A list of treatments that will not be allowed has been provided by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This includes:

  • 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

Beard services should be limited to simple beard trims, thinning or removing bulk or length which can be done using either clippers or scissors. This could be carried out from the side or by circling the client avoiding the high-risk zone.

Intricate detailing, outlining or shaving of beards that involves prolonged periods near the high-risk zone should not be carried out.

The full revised Government guidelines is available to view here
