Your Roots Are Gonna Be Ok After The Government Scrap 30-Minute Hair Appointment Rule
Here is a little bit of good news for anyone who went into full panic mode after the government announced strict new rules for hairdressers yesterday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a swift retraction, the Federal Government scrapped restrictions that meant people nipping into the hair salon were limited to only 30 minute appointments. Barely enough time for a free coffee and complimentary biccie.
The 30-minute time restriction on haircuts has been lifted, effective immediately. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the decision was made "following feedback on the practical implantation of measures". Distancing rules must be observed. #covid19australia #StayHomeAustralia pic.twitter.com/RAQ0vwpwsU

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that after being given some feedback on the unrealistic sanctions, they decided to nix the rule. Aka a bunch of well-kept cabinet members most likely told him and his humble splattering of hair to go jump on the lake.
Despite the rule reversal, ScoMo made it very clear he wants people to continue to adhere to the strict distancing sanctions.
"The 4-square-metre rule per person must be strictly observed within the premises and that personal contact during the patron's visit should be minimised wherever possible," he said in a press conference.
Things are changing very quickly so we wouldn't be surprised if salons and barbers are told to shutter indefinitely in the not too distant future.
Might be box dye until we all get back on our feet.
