Wash, lay, stand in line! Finally! After 74 days without a professional haircut, the hairdressers are allowed to open again from Monday, March 1st.

At 11 a.m., the hairdressers Simone Wegner (57) and Simone Hopp (39) let the first customer in to register. “© www.de24.news

 The  hairdressers were prepared for the rush. “We already know that from the last lockdown. Most of them are loyal regular customers. ”And they absolutely want to have new color, curls or a haircut – despite the sometimes tougher conditions set by the Senate:

► Customers may only be served by prior appointment.

► A safety distance of two meters must be maintained between the seats.

► Customers and employees have to wear a mask all the time.

► Waiting customers are not allowed to be inside the operating rooms.

But retired Heidrun Siebenhühner (78) from Prenzlauer Berg didn’t let that stop her. “What can you do? I want to look beautiful again at Easter. © www.de24.news

 The  last time I was at the hairdresser’s was about two months ago. It’s time again. ”

And pensioner Frank Petke, 63, a pensioner from Lichtenberg, took it with humor: “We used to queue for bananas, today after a hairdresser appointment. Crazy times. ”

“The last time I was at the hairdresser's was before Christmas.  I'm crazy, I thought when I saw the snake.  But what's the point, it goes relatively quickly,

Because cutting your hair alone – even the best Figaros can’t do that. Berlin’s celebrity hairdresser Shan Rahimkhan (48) let his son with the hair clipper on his forehead. And it went wrong. “I gave him the wrong attachments for the machine and then my hair was completely shaved.”

In Rahmikan’s stores, the appointments are booked out for weeks. During the forced Corona break, he had no scissors in hand – although he said he had received “many immoral offers” to illegally cut customers’ hair. Rahimkhan says he always refused.
