Panchkula, May 24

Salons and barbershops in the city resumed operations after a gap of two months with safety measures today.

Though not all branded salons in commercial markets were operational, a majority of the barbershops in inner markets and neighbourhood were open.

Praveen Singh, owner of Looks salon in Sector 9, said “We witnessed huge rush on the first day of reopening the shop. With safety and hygiene becoming a prime concern, most of the consumers availed of basic services.”

Virender Bhandari, owner of Naomi’s Headmasters, Sector 8, said, “We are attending limited number of customers and that too on the basis of prior appointment only. Our 90 per cent customers asked for basic services such as haircut, which are loss-making. Also, we are taking all precautionary measures and following hygiene and sanitisation rules such as wearing masks and gloves.”

Raj Malhotra of Sector 12-A said, “I visited a salon in Sector 8. I was happy to see that the staff there had taken all preventive measures. I made the payment online.”

According to the standard operating procedure, all staff at the barbershops should wash their hands, disinfect chairs and clean their tools before attending the next customer.
