“We try to work quickly so that we don’t waste everyone’s time, but of course there is no careless cut. Seeing that you guys are excited and happy when you have new hair, we are also happy. “During the process, both sides followed safety measures such as wearing masks, spraying disinfectant before and after cutting.
The owner of this ‘mobile hair salon’ hopes his small act can help energize frontline healthcare workers. The ‘mobile salon’ will continue to operate as long as there are people in need.
