AN MP has paid a visit to a hair salon to show her support for the personal care sector.

On Friday, Romsey and Southampton North MP, Caroline Nokes visited Lauren Hill Hairdressing, a L’Oréal partner salon in Romsey, to show support for the sector as it reopens.

With the easing of restrictions, people have been returning to personal care services for the first time in months this week.

Throughout the pandemic, L’Oréal UK and Ireland’s Professional Products Division have been supporting their partners by helping them prepare for a safe reopening.

Now, Caroline Nokes MP, who is Chair of the Parliamentary Women and Select Committee, has said it is a “relief” to see salons reopen.

She said: “I know how hard the personal care sector has worked to put in COVID-19 secure measures and to keep their clients safe.

“It is such a relief to see salons like Lauren Hill open again, giving people the chance to boost their confidence and get their hair sorted.”

A recent online survey revealed that 68 per cent of British adults that get their hair done professionally say that it supports their mental health and wellbeing.

The MP added: “This is a sector which employs hundreds of thousands of women, is a female led sector and is an important sector tackling loneliness and isolation.

“I know how hard the pandemic hit them and have been working over the last year to make sure Government Ministers understands the sector and all that it contributes.”

Lauren Hill, owner of Lauren Hill Hairdressing, said: “It’s great to receive the support from local leaders.

“As a salon owner, it is important that support for our sector continues to ensure we can begin to recover and rebuild our businesses.”
