BEAUTY salons have been given the go-ahead to open from Monday, the Government has confirmed.

In the last half hour, culture secretary Oliver Dowden announced that beauticians, tattooists and tanning salons can welcome back clients in the latest easing of the lockdown.

He said:“Having allowed hairdressers to reopen, beauticians, tattooists, spas, tanning salons and other close contact services can now do the same, I’m pleased to say, from Monday.

“Of course that will be subject to some restrictions on particularly high-risk services.”
