No more loch-down locks! Delighted Scottish social media users share their hair transformations after months without being able to get a cut and colour

  • Scots shared snaps of their fresh trims as hairdressers reopened across country
  • Under the new Covid-19 rules, people must pre-book visits to the hairdressers 
  • People flocked to get long-awaited cuts after salons being shut for three months
  • One man said they should have stayed ‘closed’ after getting a horrific new trim

Hair salons opened in Scotland yesterday, meaning many desperate Scots could finally get a long awaited chop after letting their luscious locks grow out during lockdown.

Nicola Strugeon’s  allowed Scots to get their locks trimmed a week before barbers and salons in England reopen on April 12 – as long as they have an appointment booked.  

And now Scots have shared snaps of their fresh trims after the coronavirus lockdown restrictions eased in Scotland and hairdressers reopened for the first time in three months.

People must pre-book their visits to hairdressers and barbers, and most flocked to get their long-awaited cuts as early as 6am across the country.

And while some were very excited about their new ‘dos, others were left less than impressed, as one man took to Twitter to share a snap of his trim, urging Nicola Sturgeon to ‘close’ barbers again after he was left with a drastic haircut that he absolutely hated.

Elsewhere, other people shared ‘before and after’ snaps to show off their new looks after three months of coping with some very wild hairstyles.
