AFTER the hair salons reopened their doors, many rushed to freshen up their hairstyles. As the last few months have been marked by numerous, until recently incredible changes, and hygiene is being taken care of more than ever – members of the fairer sex may have wondered which hairstyle is the best choice if you are worried about your own health.
Tim Hartley, former director of the Vidal Sassoon Academy, has the answer to that question. Namely, as he claims, the bob as worn in the 1920s is the “most hygienic” choice.
Sally-Kate Duboux, a hairdressing stylist from Hairy by Duboux, agrees.
“Salons are looking for a way to reduce the possibility of coronavirus spreading while leaving customers satisfied. One solution is to reduce airflow, thus limiting the service of blow-drying in salons. Because bean blow-drying is much faster than long-blow-drying. hair, that’s another reason why bob is a great choice, “she explained to Metro.
But Ricky Walters, the founder of SALON64, has a different view. He claims that people who wear shorter hairstyles actually touch their hair and face more often with their hands, which increases the risk of the virus spreading. Also, if you shorten your hair, you will no longer have the “luxury” of tying your hair into a ponytail or bun.
Despite this shortcoming, hair expert and Fudge Professional stylist Jonathan Andrews points out that the bob is a great choice because it is the easiest to keep clean and does not require lengthy washing and styling. In addition, in his opinion, the bob is the most hygienic hairstyle because it is minimally in contact with the clothes we wear.
