Hairdresser reveals services and styles which could be axed when salons reopen (so men and women look the same)

Ditching blow drys and reviving short haircuts including the “hygienic-yet-trendy” bob could be the key to saving the hairdressing sector, industry leaders have said.

The precision bob cut will provide a “safe” alternative to “lengthy” blow drys for long hair during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Tim Hartley, a former director at Vidal Sassoon.

Mr Hartley said: “We have to think about maximising hygiene. The sooner the long tresses of yesterday are dispensed with, the more hygienic it will be for us all.

“The hour-long blow dries in the salon are no longer safe for the stylist or the client.

“Research suggests the Covid-19 virus is transmitted much easier through a swift airflow.”

He thinks the shorter cuts, popularised by his former boss Vidal Sassoon, are the solution to the stricter hygiene required during the Covid-19 crisis.
