Following feedback, SDMC allows 90 minutes per beauty salon customer

KUCHING: Beauty salons in the state can now extend their service time per customer to one-and-a-half hours, a 30-minute increase from the previous directive.

Local Government and Housing Minister Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian said the decision to extend the time was made following feedback from various beauty salon operators who had complained that the one-hour allowed was insufficient to attend to a customer.

“It has been extended to one-and-a-half hours,” he told reporters during the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) Covid-19 daily press conference here yesterday.

“We found out that a facial treatment procedure could easily take up one hour and a half. So, the one-hour restriction is not practical. SDMC should reconsider amending this and extend it to at least one hour and a half,” he said.

According to Tiang, the beauty salons operators had no issue with the other guidelines except for the one-hour restriction.

“Beauty centres are not like hair salons. Cutting hair at the hair salons – one hour is more than enough, but not beauty centres,” he said.
