CONFIRMED: Exactly what beauty treatments are allowed in Qld from this weekend!

Ladies and gents, the countdown is officially on!

In just a few days time, we can finally say goodbye to our dodgy DIY home jobs and head back to our beloved beauty salons…

I don’t know about you, but this pandemic has really made me appreciate the finer things in life… like a mani and pedi, oh and fresh air and family too of course.


For those looking forward to finally getting some much-needed R&R this weekend, but are still confused as to what will actually be open, do not fear!

The Queensland Premier has this morning clarified what beauty therapies will be allowed to take place.

“My office has been inundated with messages about what beauty services are going to be available this weekend,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said at a press conference a short time ago.

“So this is very important for not only the people in the beauty industry, but also for a lot of women and men across Queensland.

“From this Saturday, nail and beauty salons can open for a maximum of 10 clients and of course, hair dressing salons have been open prior to that.”

The Premier went on to list the beauty services that will be allowed to take place, including waxing, laser treatments, manicures, pedicures, nail painting, eyelash extensions, facials and cosmetic injections.

“There is a lot of interest in this issue and I hope today that I have provided some clarity,” she said.

The following month, more beauty therapy businesses will be added – including spray tanning, saunas and other water based spa services, during Stage Two of the State Government’s road to recovery plan.

However, the Premier confirmed there will be no more walk-ins, with everyone required to make an appointment.

“They have to have a COVIDSafe plan in place, they must operate by appointment only and they must keep a register of clients to assist with contract tracing,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

She also urged all Queenslanders to ensure they have downloaded the Federal Government’s COVIDSafe app.

“Can I please stress to everyone, please download the app… It’s going to make contact tracing now and into the future a whole lot easier.”

Form a line, ladies!

All the best to workers in the industry, but I will be staying home until we don’t need to download any apps or have big sister checking on us going about our daily private business. Not what the ANZACs fought for. And I think the Premier means contact tracing not contract.
A no longer proud Australian.

I was initially against the app. Extraordinary times call for extradorinaiy measures. For me, the app allows me (in some small way) to help our country navigate through an unprecedented event. There is legislation in place regarding the use of the data, and it is stored on my phone unless it is needed to speed up contacting people exposed to coronavirus should I become infected. But even if my privacy wasn’t protected and big brother was looking over my shoulder, I can help keep the person standing beside me safe, I can help slow a health and economic disaster. What is more ANZAC than that?! Putting the good of the many ahead of the good of the one. If it keeps just one person alive, it’s worth it to me. Who knows, the person I keep safe might be you – or someone you love.

Pleaseeeeee !!!! Lets not get paranoid… cant wait to get my nails done….. if you want to talk about Big Brother/Sister look no further than Apple and Google !!!
