Luxembourg is home to 501 hair and 280 beauty salons. The sector boasts around 3,300 employees.

The representatives of the hairdresser and beauty salon federation had a meeting with health officials and the Minister of the Middle Classes earlier this Monday to discuss the measures that would have to be taken in order to allow reopenings.

According to information obtained by RTL, hairdressers will be able to return to work on 11 May. A representative of the sector, Michel Sanna, expressed his hope that the government will extend short-time work schemes as salons will be likely to operate at reduced capacity.

According to Sanna, officials will provide the federation with further details later this Monday.
