LA Salon Owners Frustrated As Haircuts OK'd Throughout SoCal — But Not LA County
It is legal, once again, to get a haircut in a salon in most of Southern California. Orange County, Riverside and San Bernardino counties all received permission from the state to allow hair salons and barbershops to reopen.
L.A. County has not. And salon owners like Rebecca McDonald are frustrated.
- Barbering chairs will be 6 feet apart
- Clients and stylists will wear masks
- Hair washing and blow drying will not be allowed
- Appointment only
- Extra cleaning
- Temperature checks
But given that salons in neighboring counties reopened on Tuesday, McDonald worries she’s going to lose clients.
"Our customers, our loyal customers, are now traveling to Orange County or San Bernardino County for a haircut," she said.
L.A. County applied for permission from the state to reopen additional businesses, like hair salons, and should hear back soon.
