Pent up demand for hair and beauty services here after a two-week lockdown has meant major overtime for beauty professionals across Northern Ireland.

A build-up in demand for festive haircuts, nail treatments and other cosmetic services has meant many beauty professionals here will have to put in extra hours to meet all appointments and try to recoup some of what has been lost from the forced closures over the past 10 months.

Garry Jackson, owner of 30-year-old Garry's Barber Shop in Holywood, described demand as "complete insanity" and invited "anyone from the NI Executive to come down and see what they're putting us through".
