Pune, June 27, 2020: After the Maharashtra state government allowed salons and beauty parlours to re-open, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has released guidelines for them. Salons and beauty parlours have to been allowed to open outside the containment zones. 

Municipal Commissioner Shekhar Gaikwad issued the order today and allowed the salons, beauty parlours to re-open from Sunday. However, when opening shops, there are restrictions on providing any services other than haircuts by fixing a pre-arranged time for the customer.

Although most businesses were allowed in the state after Mission Begin Again started, it was decided to keep the salons and beauty parlours closed. After protests, the state government had finally approved the resumption of salons in the state two days ago.


As soon as the government order was finally received on Saturday morning, the municipal corporation has permitted to start salons and beauty parlours outside the restricted area from Sunday. However, in both cases, only haircuts are allowed.

These are the rules:

  •  Restricted entry with prior appointments only
  • Only select services such as haircut, dyeing hair, waxing, threading etc. are allowed. Skin related services will not be permitted presently. This should be prominently displayed on the shop. 
  • Employees must put protective gear including gloves, aprons & masks. 
  • All workspace (chair) must be sanitized after each service. All common areas and floors must be sanitized after every 2 hours. 
  • Disposable towels/napkins must be used on customers. Non-disposable equipment should be sanitized and sterilized after each service. 
  • Each shop will put up a notice on all the precautions above for the information of customers.
