Life in Lockdown | Lockdown Locks

Hair salons were allowed to reopen on Saturday, 4 July and, as luck would have it, I managed to snag the first appointment of the day with my regular stylist. (Dennis is lovely, but he does like a chat.)

I was last in the hair salon on the 16 March and I usually have my hair cut every five weeks … meaning that for the last few weeks, I’ve been looking rather unkempt.

Want to see the ‘before’?

My hair was still short-ish, but there was a lot of it, it was heavy and I had to resort to clipping the fringe (bangs) back because of how long it was, That, and the fact that I became plagued with a persistent stye (something that I haven’t suffered from in about 40 years 😦 )

The salon staff was well prepared and I was issued with my own mask and disposable gown on arrival.

Cutting stations had been blocked off to allow for social-distancing and Dennis was wearing PPE.

And to my surprise, I decided to keep some of the length and just get rid of the weight.

Four days since the haircut

And as things stand currently, I have an another appointment in five weeks. 🙂

  1. The befores aren’t too bad, really, your stylist is talented that allowed the grow-out to still be quite nice in shape. The during photo is quite fun. Dennis does look a chatter (col). After photo – stunning!! Ouch to the stye – hope that’s cleared up now.

    Let’s hope that everyone is behaving so a re-peal of the latest easements isn’t necessary. Look at poor Melbourne (Australia). Montreal (Quebec) is under threat of a re-lockdown if the partying gets out of hand again.

    1. Thank you, as always, for your kind words. 🙂

      These new, localised lockdowns are really quite concerning, aren’t they? And the news coming out of the US and Brazil fills me with horror at the seeming ineptitude of those who are supposed to be leading their nations.


      1. I could but I won’t say too much about our neighbours to the south. Thankfully our border is still closed to anything but commercial traffic. It is heart breaking that this virus is taking on such a political theme. I shake my head …
