Kolkata News: The total closure of salons, spas, and beauty parlors from Monday has been met with mixed reactions. This restriction is a step in the right direction, even if some salon owners would prefer a partial closure.

Vedic Village Sanjeeva Ayurveda Center’s front office supervisor, Soma Santra, says they won’t only accept relaxation-seeking guests. As a result, the number of people will significantly decrease. We will follow the restrictions imposed by the government and reopen only when instructed,” Santra said.
In addition, Anjali Sambtani, the owner of Juice Salon in Alipore and Rowland Row, will follow suit. “In any case, there weren’t too many clients since people were apprehensive. It is a body blow for us to be restricted in this way. It’s only consolation to know that with such a measure, we can hopefully return to normal soon. It would be nice if we could run with 50% occupancy, she said.
Founder of a beauty parlor since 1992, Sharmila Singh Flora, a loyal patron had asked her last year, during the lockdown, to reopen her parlor.
An immediate pedicure was needed by a diabetic patient. Getting a haircut was necessary for older people. The shutters are to be taken down, but the rear entrance to the salon will remain open. Having refused, we made sure that protocol was followed when we reopened. There should have been steps taken long ago to control the crowd because it has been out of control again. I wish the government recognized the plight of foot soldiers, but I know owners will survive. A partial closure of some salons would have been better,” she said.
There is a chance to increase calls for those who offer beauty services in their homes. “We must take care of our families and pay our bills. My hope is that my clients will call me now that parlors are closed,” said beautician Rakhi Sarkar.
