Auckland hairdressers are roaring and ready to reopen.
Salons can re-open on Thursday and will be the first industry to trial the new Covid Vaccine Pass.
Julie Evans, Chief Executive of salon chain Rodney Wayne, says the company is still waiting for the Ministry of Health to release the Vaccine Pass Verifier app it will need to use.
That app is coming today.
Evans told Mike Hosking her staff have done everything they can do, to get ready for reopening day.
"We’ve worked through trends, looks, what we might do with DIY jobs, embracing the grey, navigating Covid vaccine conversations in the workplace; we believe we’re ready.”
