Barbershops, hair salons allowed to reopen in most California counties


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KRON) — California counties that have been approved to move further with reopening are now allowed to reopen barbershops and hair salons with modifications, Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday.

Newsom said 47 counties have been approved to move further in reopening. Eleven counties have not yet been approved in the state.

Most Bay Area counties have not been approved to reopen further expect for Sonoma, Napa, and Solano counties.

The governor said his office is working with legislature on guidelines to reopen nail salons. He said more guidance is needed there and in other personal care service sectors.

The counties that are allowed to reopen these businesses must follow these guidelines.

The shops are allowed to provide services as long as they can be done with both the worker and customer wearing face coverings. This include haircuts, hair coloring, blowouts, weaves and extensions, braiding, lock maintenance, wig maintenance and hair relaxing treatments, according to the governor’s office.

Services that cannot be done with face coverings or that require touching the client’s face, like shaving, facial waxing, threading, eyelash services, and facials, are not yet allowed.
