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.”
