The 30-minute time limit on hair appointments has been lifted after salon owners said it was too difficult to cut someone’s hair in half an hour.
The rule was announced on Tuesday night to slow the spread of coronavirus but has been scrapped just eight hours after it came into force at midnight.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister said the decision was made ‘following the receipt of feedback on the practical implementation of measures’.
However, clients must still remain four square metres apart.
One Sydney hairdresser welcomed the news but slammed the government for the lack of clarity.
‘The government hasn’t got a clue,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
Hairdressers no longer have only 30 minutes to attend to each customer. Pictured: A salon in Brisbane
