Montrealers in need of a fresh hairdo only need to wait a couple of more weeks to get a professional haircut.
The Quebec Government announced on Friday that businesses offering personal care services will be allowed to reopen throughout the Montreal metropolitan area starting on June 15.
Services permitted to reopen include hairdressers, hair removal, skin care, nail salons, and tattoo parlours.

Le 15 juin, ce sera la réouverture graduelle des services de soins esthétiques et personnels dans le Grand Montréal et dans la MRC de Joliette.
Une bonne nouvelle, mais si on veut continuer d’avancer dans la bonne direction, il faut continuer de suivre les consignes sanitaires. pic.twitter.com/D9zzWewT2f

According to Quebec’s Minister of Labour, Jean Boulet, the personal/beauty care industry is a “vital aspect to the province’s economy,” citing that 4,000 companies in Quebec employ over 49,000 people.
He said the beauty care industry plays an “extensive role” both mentally and physically for Quebecers.
