A survey has revealed that haircuts are top of the list for Scousers after lockdown

A survey has revealed that across Liverpool people are more desperate to get their hair cut than anything else post lockdown.

The survey, conducted among local residents, reveals attitudes towards the further lifting of lockdown restrictions. And in Liverpool people are most looking forward to getting their hair cut or salon treatments done. Four in ten are more desperate to visit their local hairdresser, barber or beauty salon than anything else.
A quarter of people will use public transport to get to their favourite venue when it opens. Whilst many will walk or bike, another quarter will drive and not drink. The majority of the remainder – nearly one third – said they felt comfortable using a black cab because of the partition between the driver and passenger. Respondents said the ferry felt safe compared to buses and trains.

The survey, which more than 220 Liverpool residents answered, was conducted by Liverpool-based firm ComCab.  It also reveals that bars and cafes being shut is actually frustrating people more than workplace disruption and schools not being fully operational.  One in five wrongly thought taxi drivers had stopped working 24 hours a day and overall 30% of people say that travelling doesn’t feel safe.

Comcab Liverpool are still operating with full social distancing measures in place to ensure passenger safety

When it comes to shopping one in ten will be happy to go just to browse, but nearly half hadn’t made their minds up about their shopping habits. A small number revealed they’d stay put at home whilst a third confirmed they will only go out when it’s essential. Only one in ten found social distancing inconvenient.

Claire Langrell from ComCab Liverpool says:

“We know Liverpool spends more per capita on looking good than most other major UK cities.  We also learnt that people aren’t keen to use buses and trains but will be rushing to their local salon. Only ten percent of people cited social distancing as being inconvenient. Black cabs still have a major role to play in moving people round the city. The statistics tell us people feel safe because of their purpose-built design.”
