As of today, all non-essential businesses in Ontario and Quebec — including hair salons — will be closed in an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19. While skipping your hair appointment as a public-health precaution might feel like a small sacrifice for the greater good, the reality is that temporary shutdowns have a devastating impact on the small-business salon owners and stylists who are forced to suspend all operations.
To help your local salon stay afloat during these uncertain times, you can donate through GoFundMe (if they've set one up), buy a gift card, purchase your at-home hair products within their network, or simply pre-pay for your next cut. We recommend the latter, not only because it bolsters the salon, but pulling inspiration for your big post-isolation hair refresh also doubles as a distracting at-home project.
Ahead, seven trendy spring haircuts to bring to your pre-booked appointment — and to give you a little something to look forward to for the next few weeks.
