Locks come off as NI barbers and hairdressers raise shutters

The ladies and gents of Belfast were out in force from the very early hours of Monday as hairdressers, barbers and beauty salons finally opened their doors once more.

For the past few weeks salons the length and breadth of Northern Ireland from Belcoo to Bangor, Strabane to Strangford have been working flat out to redecorate their premises and install protective measures in the lead-up to July 6.

After hotels and pubs serving food reopened on Friday, the hair and beauty industry had to wait three more days to get back to business.
