Survey: Ladies are worried about contracting the virus at the hairdressing salon

What’s in the Hair?

For the first time in over six weeks, hairdressers in Germany on Saturday were allowed to re-open, but many people were not sure whether to visit the hairdressing salon was a good idea.

One in four people, 25 percent polled in a YouGov survey commissioned by dpa said they had “mild concerns” but would still go for a trim, while 13 percent said they had “major concerns” or “very major concerns.”

The representative survey found that 11 percent would not be making any hair appointments due to the risk of contracting coronavirus.

Another 11 percent sought help from someone else to tame their locks, with largely positive results: 87 percent of people who got a lockdown haircut said they were either “very satisfied” or “rather satisfied” with it. According to YouGov, only three percent of amateur haircuts ended in disaster very unsatisfied.

What happens when hairstylists are no longer able to have clients ?

The concept of African American women not being able to get their hair done is considered traumatic to them.

It’s no secret that hair plays a major role within Black culture. But Black hair also has considerable effects outside of the community. Black women’s hair can impact the creative state of popular culture in so many ways.

What we decide to do with our hair and how often we switch up our style often sparks or reignites trends. It shows up on Instagram, moodboards, and eventually ends up on magazine spreads.
