From getting our nails done to getting our hair cut, there are certain things we do as personal forms of self- care that help us to look and feel our best. Sometimes, we plan these beauty appointments months in advance, patiently counting down the days until we can freshen up our hair color, snip those split ends, or replace that outgrown gel mani. But with salons across the country having to temporarily close their doors to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), many of us have had to hold off on our normal beauty appointments.

Right now, the name of the game is social distancing.
Instead of going in for a hair, nail, or tanning appointment, try buying a gift card to the salon for the cost of your regular service and use it at a later date. That way, you can still support the small, local businesses you love, without putting yourself or others at risk.
