Josh Wood and Jodie Harsh team up for a socially distanced styling session in support of the Mayor of London’s #LondonIsOpen

by | Jul 8, 2020

With lockdown in London slowly easing, the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, is encouraging Londoners to stay safe and support local businesses, with the relaunch of his #LondonIsOpen campaign. 

British Beauty Council Executive Board Member, Josh Wood and iconic DJ and Londoner, Jodie Harsh are supporting the campaign with a socially distanced styling session. 

Josh and Jodie are supporting #LondonIsOpen, demonstrating how hairdressers across the city are opening in a COVID-safe way, and are urging Londoners to support hairdressers and the industry across the city, as they look to recover from the four months of closure. 


Josh Wood, who is also on the board of the British Beauty Council, has said in support of the campaign; “I am delighted to be taking part in LondonIsOpen. In London, we are home to the best hairdressing skills in the world and we are so pleased to be welcoming our clients back. We carefully studied the approaches taken around the world to learn lessons to re-open safely and effectively. My team has put in place visors, removed chairs for more social distancing, extended business hours and changed our whole way of working to keep clients and team safe.”

Hairdressers and barbershops in Britain re-opened their doors on Saturday 4th of July, implementing strict salon procedures to keep salon staff and clients safe. You can read current government guidelines for the hairdressing industry here.
