The Dutch hairdressers are immediately busy on Saturday now that they can open again. Many barber shops noticed from the moment the possible reopening leaked that the number of reservations increased and are fully booked this weekend. On Saturday, customers were therefore present early to be cut again.

At Hairby Colors in the Neerstraat in Roermond, all sixteen seats were occupied just after 09:30. “Last week we already made a plan in case we opened from the 15th,” says hairdresser Peter van Meel, who knows that it will remain busy in the coming days. The neighbors of hair salon Vasco are also busy. “People can be liberated here from their wrong-policy haircut,” jokes owner Vasco Campos of actor Huub Stapel’s hairdresser.

Also in the Middenwaard shopping center in Heerhugowaard in North Holland it is busy early at the hairdresser. Anne-Christien van Beekhuizen also noticed this bustle, who owns four hairdressing shops of the Hizi Hair chain in Castricum, Baarn, Soest and Amersfoort. “We are completely full on Saturday and Sunday too.” Although Hizi Hair only works by appointment, customers still regularly come in to ask if there is still room.

That also happens at Leon Zuidgeest Kappers in The Hague. “But we are completely full,” says manager Priscilla Takats of the branch in shopping center Het Kleine Loo. “When we opened at 09:00, there were already six customers at the door,” she laughs. “The customers are very happy to be able to go to the hairdresser again and we have already had flowers and chocolates,” said Takats. “We are also happy that we can get back to work, because sitting at home is nothing.”

Peter-Paul Wilson of Kinki Kappers on the Rotterdam Binnenweg also notices this sentiment, both among hairdressers and customers. “Of course people come for their hair, but many people are really shy about a chat and stay as long as possible,” he says. Wilson and his barbers were in the salon from Thursday to take phone calls. “80 percent of reservations come in online, but it was still busy.” His Kinki branch will be full in January. “And February is also starting to fill up quite nicely.”
