Listen Now: Underground Hair Salons: Germany Cracks Down
Life is full of risks, but should a haircut be one of them?
After weeks of staying indoors and saying goodbye to nonessential businesses, people are starting to complain. Especially when it comes to things such as personal appearance. But in Germany, a makeover could be more expensive than you expected.
Recently police went underground to uncover two hairdressing salons that had been set up in secret. When officers arrived, there were people having their hair done in makeshift salons complete with full equipment.
And besides people getting their hair done, people were waiting in line in the small spaces. After discovering these underground salons, German police are opening investigations for more. And not just hair salons, they are on the hunt for anyone that is not following the lockdown procedures in place. Under those rules, leaving home without a valid reason is punishable by a fine of one hundred and sixty dollars.
Hair and nail salons, and other businesses deemed nonessential will have to wait at least a few more days before opening. Looks like the price of beauty is going up.
