Joseph Hoggarth, salon manager of Jo and Cass's Preston branch for three years, opened their phone lines again on Tuesday for bookings and says demand has "been huge".

"We've got people working from home taking calls and are in the process of launching our new app for clients to make their own bookings," he said.

"Demand has been huge. Since opening our phone lines again, we've almost filled up availability for July because we have been so overwhelmed with calls. We have extended our hours when we open to meet the demand.
