One of the main risk factors is the close relationship between customers and salon employees.

“A woman’s haircut takes from 35 to 40 minutes, at least,” the study authors say. “The longer the procedure, the higher the risk of infection.”

Salon workers face a large flow of visitors every day, which also increases the chances of infection.

Do not forget about asymptomatic carriers of the virus, which can infect others without even knowing about their disease.
