The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) told their members cosmetic procedures can start up again as long they are able to follow strict social distancing rules, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Hair salons are waiting until July 4 to reopen to their clients.

Dr Maryam Zamani, an oculoplastic specialist, will start seeing patients again in small numbers from the middle of June.

She told The Daily Telegraph: "This is an unprecedented time – we are looking at ourselves everyday all day on screens.

"We can't out hair, nails facials done – it's about doing something for you."

Greg White, the BCAM chief executive, said clinicians who are members have the legal authority to choose when to resume seeing patients.

Hair salons were given the green light yesterday to operate as a "click and collect" service to sell shampoo and conditioner.

A senior government source told the paper: "We still do not anticipate hairdressers and salons opening before phase three."

Hairdressers and salons are looking to set up a physical collection point when other "non-essential shops" open up on June 15.

However, the rules strictly say customers cannot enter the premises because "social distancing requirements" are unable to be met in smaller salons.
