The National Bargaining Council for the Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty and Skincare Industry (“The Council”) was notified on Monday about a post that a salon was indicating that they were allowed to trade based on a permit supplied by The Council.
We would hereby like to confirm that there was a misunderstanding from the salon owner on the interpretation of what is allowed under Level 4 of the lockdown. The regulations only allow the retail of personal toiletries, including haircare, body, face, hand and foot care products, roll-ons, deodorants, and dental care products.
This matter has now been resolved and the advertised services were ceased with immediate effect.
We wish the establishment well with the retail of permitted products only during this time.
Finance Manager & Acting CEO
The National Bargaining Council for the Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty and Skincare Industry
Below are the responses from EOHCB and Legends Barber Shop
Dear EOHCB Members & Industry,
With regards to an earlier post today and a statement released by the council, about the National Bargaining Council for Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty and Skincare permitting Legends Barbershop to perform services during level 4 has been addressed by the council, the EOHCB and the owner, and its been confirmed that there was a misunderstanding in the interpretation of what is allowed in terms of level 4 of the lockdown regulations and the use of a permit to only retail personal toiletries, including haircare, body, face, hand and foot care products, roll-ons, deodorants, dental care products.
We confirm that the misinterpretation has been resolved and we wish Legends Barbershop well and safety whilst retailing permitted essential goods.
The following communication regarding our standing as Legends Barbershop in allegations made against us.
Legends services are unavailable in line with the regulations of the country and the lockdown. There was a misunderstanding between the Legends Barbershop and the EOCHB which had since been resolved.
We do apologize for any confusion caused by this.
Legends Barbershop will reopen as soon as the law permits us to do so.
Thank once again for your continues support...
