Post-lockdown demand has led to Northern Ireland's hair and beauty industry enjoying its busiest period since Christmas after reopening last month.

Hair and beauty salons reopened on July 6 with staff wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and customers required to don masks when they turn up for appointments.

Hairdresser Andrew Mulvenna says balancing the huge demand from clients for cuts and colours with managing new hygiene regulations has been challenging.
