BREAKING: Newsom Allows Reopening for Hair Salons and Barbershops

Tuesday, Gavin Newsom decided he would release more business owners and employees from the restraints of government, allowing 47 of the 58 counties to begin to offer hair services.

Counties that have attested to the state that COVID-19 is under control locally can reopen those businesses effective immediately.  The only 11 counties excluded at this time are: Alameda, Contra Costa, Imperial, Los Angeles, Marin, Monterey, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Tulare counties.  These counties can apply for an appeal and likely be granted one, if and when they choose to.

Orange County is open for business for Stage 3.

But please– one favor: Take a picture of your current haircut and do a before/after with it and tag us in it– we would love to see your new ‘do!
