The Irish Hairdressers Federation will present a list of recommendations to the government this week in a bid to reopen salons earlier than July 20.

A total of 110 recommendations will be presented this week with incoming President of the Irish Hairdressers Federation Danielle Kennedy saying: "Foremost in our thoughts is the wellbeing of our staff and the safety of our customers."

Speaking on Morning Ireland today, Ms Kennedy confirmed that salons will only allow customers by appointment and pre-screening will be carried out to see if clients had traveled abroad or been ill recently.

She said that salons are "well-equipped" and if that if the proposals are accepted, salons will be able to reopen in a way that is "safe for both staff and customers."

Among the recommendations that are being proposed are the use of masks by all salon workers as well as the "extensive use of PPE and sanitation procedures."
