Hair and beauty salons may be wondering what business will be like as many states and territories begin to ease COVID-19 restrictions. A recent survey of over 600 people from across Australia reveals the industry may see a quicker return to normal than other industries.
The study conducted between 3-10 May 2020 by Social Media Guide covers 45 activities and destination types ranging from retail, fitness, bars and clubs, through to sporting events and places of worship.
A total of 78% of respondents from across all age groups indicated that they had attended a hair or beauty salon (eg. Nails, waxing, piercing, hairdresser) over the past 12 months. Slightly less, 76% of respondents, said they planned to attend a hair or beauty salon (eg. Nails, waxing, piercing, hairdresser) within the next 12 months.
The most promising part of the research findings is 91% of those respondents planned to return within 3 months of restrictions easing. More than 63% in the first month alone.
