I really don't understand all this hostility, we're all learning and sharing info during these shitty times.
The OP asked a perfectly innocent question which may not be so obvious e.g.in Australia hairdressers are allowed to be open with appropriate distancing.

Clicked on the link and both photos in the Australian article show people having their hair coloured/having highlights! From arrival to finish it takes my hairdresser around 3 hours to do highlights and cut and dry my hair. Appropriate distancing is an impossibility and, in addition to being in very close proximity, the client also needs to move around the salon while having their tint washed off the hair. Utter insanity!

Just in case it is getting out of hand, there's a good looking fella giving away a serious bit of shaving kit on this here EF.
Shameless plug.

Serious shaving kit's a waste of money anyway, IMO. Three-blade disposables are the easiest and most cost-effective - been using them for decades.

Your shaving kit has more blades than my kitchen knife set.

Re: Any hairdressers available during this Corona shutdown in Zurich region?

It's scary for us ladies too - in about another 10 days my roots will be shot to hell as I know my hair is very white but I'm not ready to go there yet. We do however both have the fright wigs we had for a party last year and I've offered to swap my purple spiky punk one for my OH's heavy metal mullet

You misunderstand. Clearly one doesn't need more than three good sharp knives in any given kitchen, but not all of us are organised enough to ensure that they're always clean and ready for use.

I like to have options, so that when the Güde 10in chef's knife has been used for meat, I can fall back on the Sabatier 8in one or the ancient but still perfectly good Prestige 10in. Or the smaller one. Or the cleaver.

I reckon I've got about ten good knives in our kitchen here, so there's always at least one suitable one immediately to hand.

Oh, and thanks for the "Young'n"

From your link...

But the Australian Hairdressing Council's Sandy Chong has slammed the decision saying the profession is being put at risk by allowing them to operate.

Many are not happy with this decision... https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-...ainer/12092242 ... and anyway, TIS

It´s getting more and more common to obtain these impolite answers from other members of the forum. It's quite sad.

Seems to be for years... at least, the last 5 years, I have been on English Forum, in Switzerland.

The "pretend" tuffest crowd of folks I encounter on the internet on a weekly basis, except Reddit, 4chan, etc. and some other platforms that allow idiots to run rampant.

As much as I appreciate valuable posts and opinions from some EF posters; there very much seems, to be an "almighty" important goal of being, the most smart-ass, cynical, sarcastic and loose minded individual/behavior that is not in very many ways "Swiss."

If some of these EF warriors (X,XXX's posts) of English Forum with apparently nothing better to do than post insults, crap and sarcastic shit all day actually lived in reality "In Switzerland" instead of living life on an "English" forum, in a foreign country, than maybe there would be more of a community that could look forward to reading the EF forum but not ashamed to tell their spouse how idiotic people down the road are...

Thank you to the good posters of this great forum.

You may want to read that initial post again. Perhaps pay attention this time.

Re: Any hairdressers available during this Corona shutdown in Zurich region?

Just a thought:

This is a very tough time for hairdressers, especially those who work independently or run their own small business.

If you can, one way to help is to keep buying the shampoo, styling products, etc. you would normally buy while visiting the shop. My hairdresser recently sent around mail offering to ship products, I would guess others would be happy to do so as well.

Thank you for suggesting this, melloncolie. I felt sorry for the girls I usually go for a haircut, highlights, manicure and wondered how can I help them a little.
