Under current restrictions, popping out to get your nails done or your hair coloured isn’t really an option.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still pamper yourself, at the same time as supporting local hair and beauty experts.
From the products available for home delivery to virtual consultations and fun competitions, here are some salons in and around Dundee that still have lots to offer during lockdown.
Whilst it’s temporarily shut, Rare Hairdressing has decided to run a competition.
Its aim is to help encourage everyone to leave their roots alone and wait for Rare to reopen.
And the prize is Rare Hairdressing’s most popular service – the colour package!
You’ll get your colour or highlights, a conditioning treatment, cut and style, plus gel nails.
To enter, simply:
- Like the Rare Hairdressing Facebook page
- Like their competition post
- Post a picture of your roots in the comments
- And tag your friends.
Rare Hairdressing will announce a winner as soon as they have a date to re-open. Go on – show ‘em your roots!
