Prices in hairdressers, hotels, cafes and pubs are set to rise in post-lockdown Northern Ireland.

Despite promises to keep them at pre-pandemic levels, key industry figures have warned customers of imminent hikes, to reflect increased costs and reduced capacity - and because they will struggle to offer deals across a range of services.

Hairdressers said the price of a blow-dry, cut or colour was likely to rise by at least £5 as salons offset extra costs.
