Hairdressers in California are now able to resume their work by offering their services outdoors during the coronavirus pandemic. The Insignia hair salon in Walnut Creek was among those that resumed their activities, by setting up tents and their materials on the parking lot, on Friday.
«We just basically pulled together what we had because we didn't want to buy anything because we already struggled for three months during the first shutdown, we had to pay rent and bills and we were not making any money,» explained Regina Muslimova, owner of Insignia Hairstylist.
«It was so easy and actually felt better than an indoor haircut, if you ask me. It was nice and breezy, I really love the setup here at Insignia,» said Lennor, a customer.
This week, California's Governor Gavin Newsom gave an order allowing hairstylists to provide their services again, out in the open instead of indoors.
However, only hairdressers with enough outdoor space to accommodate clients have been able to reopen.
