The Irish Hairdressers Federation Is Calling On The Government To Compel Salons To Close During The Coronavirus Crisis

Almost all of its 400 members have closed

But there are still a small number that are continuing to take appointments.

The Federation says salons have tried a number of ways to remain open but are finding it impossible to cut or colour hair while maintaining social distancing rules. 

Beauty therapists are also urging people against buying dangerous injectables online while clinics are closed.

Only trained medical professionals are qualified to carry out these treatments, that can easily go wrong.
