The anticipation among many people is growing: On March 1, the hairdressing salons will open again in North Rhine-Westphalia during the corona crisis. Sadiye Kisin from Duisburg came up with something unusual for this. “We are auctioning the first date on March 1st at 12:01 am,” said the operator of a hairdressing salon. Money can still be offered until February 28, when she will announce the winner at 12 noon.
The 48-year-old advertises the campaign on Facebook and Instagram.
The first bids had already been received at the weekend.
The money should be donated to a good cause, said the hairdresser: “That will go to Kindernothilfe.” She wanted to top up the amount herself.
On March 1, the approximately 80,000 hairdressing businesses in Germany are allowed to reopen earlier than other businesses after a compulsory break for months. According to industry information, the rush will be huge.
If you want to have an appointment with Kisin from Duisburg, for example, you have to hold on – almost all of March is already booked, she says.
The re is a real rush of customers.
The refore, the hairdresser has also extended the opening times of her salon.
However, compliance with the hygiene measures has top priority for her. “Stand builders have built us booths in which you can sit separately for a longer period for a permanent wave.”
The re is also ventilation for the salon and waiting places have been abolished.
