The industry has today issued a rallying plea urging Boris Johnson to reopen the sector as it continues to lose millions of pounds and countless job losses. 

Skin care guru Caroline Hirons has penned an impassioned letter to the Prime Minister asking for the government to open clinics on August 15. 

The letter, delivered to Downing Street last night, calls on the government to give the green light for salons to reopen as staff have been left for five months without an income.   

Labour MP Carolyn Harris told MailOnline that the sector had been 'forgotten' amid the pandemic with workers 'left adrift and financially in ruin'. 

The sector contributes around £30 billion annually to the UK economy alone with 370,000 people - or one in every 60 jobs - employed by the industry.
