Our local beauty businesses need our support now more than ever; here’s how you can show them some love

There are many different categories of small businesses that have suffered through this pandemic and those who require close, in-person contact to operate have had it especially tough, for obvious reasons. This includes hair salons and beauty spas; massage therapists, facialists and barbers. The people who, with their skill and knowledge, we trust to help us both look and feel good, which in turn affects how we move through the world.

While physical salons and spas are unable to open, there are still ways to support your favourites so they can stay afloat until stage three of the government’s 3-stage alert level plan for Auckland. We suggest buying an online voucher for a friend or to pay for your future appointment if the salon sells them online, or perhaps purchase your next product top-up from your favourite beauty business’s online store. If nothing else, making sure you’ve got your next appointment lined up for as soon as it can happen will give these businesses a little peace of mind that their loyal clients will return.

Should you require a prompt, we have collated Auckland’s favourite beauty and grooming businesses below — and find a fantastic giveaway at the bottom of this list to make your reemergence into society as polished as can be.
