A BEAUTY salon said the government’s announcement they could reopen was "mixed", as there are a number of treatments they are not allow to do when they reopen.

Tabitha Wilkinson, from Beauty By Tabitha in St John’s, said she was “relieved” that side of her business was able to reopen from Monday, following hairdressing reopening last week, but it was “confusing” why some things were still banned.

“From Monday we can open but only for nails, pedicures and massage," she said.

“We can’t do any facials, eyebrow treatment or microblading.

"It’s a mixed reaction. I’m glad to be back, I have been dying to get back to my clients.

"But then it is disappointing it is not all of it. We have PPE, screens, would follow the guidelines.

“And then you hear beard trims are allowed - it does not make sense.”
