A hairdresser who is determined not to down tools during the coronavirus pandemic has gone viral for her bizarre method to create a barrier between herself and her customers.
The stylist cut holes into an umbrella for her arms and eyes, allowing her to ‘wear’ it while going about her appointments as usual.
The protective measures also include a pair of disposable gloves as she continue to work at the Bella Rosa salon in Oss, Holland.
One clip in which laughing can be heard in the background includes the caption ‘this is not going well’ as it went viral on social media, gaining more than 82,000 shares on Facebook.
The hairdresser was then forced to cut an additional hole in her makeshift protective suit to thread another customer’s eyebrows.
Two clips uploaded on social media left people in stitches, as some praised the worker’s inventive solution, as reported by the Daily Mail.
One person commented: “‘You have an invention for everything, right. Superwoman.’
Another replied: “Haha, good idea.”
A third simply added: “Bunch of lunatics.”
