  • BEAUTY BACKED – LETTER OF SUPPORT TO THE UK GOVERNMENT

    HI EVERYONE!

    This was sent to the government this evening. Thank you to all that signed, the full, live, updated list will be available on beautybacked.com from tomorrow morning. We are adding to it constantly.

    To:
    Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP
    Rishi Sunak MP
    Alok Sharma MP
    Prof Chris Whitty

    Dear Prime Minister, Chancellor, Secretary of State for BEIS and Professor Whitty,

    We, the undersigned, support our colleagues in the British Beauty Industry and the Beauty Backed campaign.

    The beauty industry contributes £28 billion annually to the UK economy alone and 1 in every 60 jobs is in beauty.

    Beauty clinics, freelance therapists and makeup artists are expecting and planning to reopen on Saturday 15th August. They need to start contributing to the UK economy once more and where applicable, take their staff off furlough.

    We are extremely concerned that there has been no confirmation from the government about reopening this Saturday and therefore implore you not to backtrack on your announced opening date.

    Aestheticians, beauty therapists and makeup artists, all of whom are qualified and insured, have not been able to earn an income for more than five months.
    If restrictions continue, you will further impact those who safely carry out treatments and will demonstrate that the Government does not comprehend or appreciate the value of the beauty industry.

    Outside of medical environments, the beauty industry, more than any other, maintains the level of standards required for safety during the Covid-19 crisis, with the majority of treatments already taking place with PPE in place during ‘normal’ times. The health and safety of clients has always been taken extremely seriously.

    With this in mind, it is well overdue that the beauty industry should be allowed to return to work in full.
