Chinese barbers have come up with a creative way to style their clients’ hair whilst keeping a safe distance amid the coronavirus outbreak – by using tools attached to the end of long sticks.
Hairdressers wearing protective masks are captured on videos holding four-foot-long poles wrapped with brushes, shavers and hairdryers.
‘The tools don’t work as well as when you hold them in your hand, but this is for the safety [of us and the customers],’ Wu Junlong, a barbershop owner from Henan Province of central China, told the press.
