All hairdressers must stop work until further notice.
Mobile hairdressers can still cut your hair.
Along with various other premises, hairdressing salons were required to close from 4pm on 26th March 2020. They also had to cease the business so that, for example, they could not to continue to serve their clients if that, as would be likely, would mean the business was continuing.
By definition, however, mobile hairdressers do not operate a salon. They are not included in the schedule of premises and businesses required to close. No restriction was placed on them continuing to visit their clients’ homes as usual. Of course, those who represent hairdressing salons may have a vested interest in telling you otherwise.
