BORIS Johnson today finally ended his own locks-down by getting a long overdue haircut over the weekend.
The PM has levelled up his unruly barnet after joking he was “starting to get dreadlocks at the back”.
At first he left the nation on a quiff-hanger, covering up with a hard hat on a visit to a building site in Goole, Yorkshire.
But then came the mane event as he removed it to show he’s shorn again.
The PM is now in razor sharp shape to take on Sir Keir Starmer, who has been mocked by Jeremy Clarkson over his “Lego hair” during lockdown.
However, the Labour boss has also had his hair cut at the weekend.
And the PM enjoyed the much-needed trim at the weekend along with a pint at the local near his Chequers country retreat.
The PM said today that Brits CAN drink and social distance safely – but admitted “some got it wrong” at the weekend.
After pubs opened on Saturday many flocked to their locals to enjoy a cold pint, but many were seen not staying apart to stop the spread of coronavirus.
He praised punters for “overwhelmingly” behaving themselves when the pubs reopened their doors for the first time in three months.
Asked during a visit to a rail construction site in Yorkshire if drinking and social distancing can mix, Mr Johnson said: “I think they can mix if people are sensible.
“Actually my evidence I’ve seen is yes – there have been some places where people have been imprudent and you can see there’s been some people who have been getting it wrong.
“But actually overwhelmingly over the weekend I think the people of this country did the right thing.”
Brits going to hairdressers will face new rules when they get there, after many opened on Super Saturday.
It’s likely all workers will be wearing gloves and a mask, which is the minimum requirement suggested by the British Beauty Council and some salons could see perspex screens above the basins too.
In some places blow-dries will not be offered as hairdryers blast particles around the room, which could potentially compromise the entire salon.
Other changes may include a “one-way system” to reduce interaction between people, and you’ll likely go straight to your chair for your appointment and straight back out again.
Some salons may have a limit on how many customers can be inside at any one time, or have a quota for each day.
And chairs are likely to be more spaced out than before.
Hairdressers and barbers may also extend their opening hours as a way around this to try and see as many customers as possible, and staff may work rotas to minimise contact between them.
