US Hair Salons Are Reopening – Everything You Need to Know Broken Down by State

Despite a country-wide prolonged lack of testing and a fluctuating infection rate, stay-at-home orders have been de-prioritized, allowing every state to fully or partially open. While that may be a good thing for your hair or your business, only time will tell the impact this will have on public health.

Though you can get a haircut in almost all states, there are different guidelines on close personal contact depending on where you are and many are enforcing social distance practices. 

To make things easier for you, no matter which state you live in, we’ve provided a guide to when every state has reopened or plans to reopen personal care services, with a link where you can read up and find out exactly what that means.
