OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – Many West Virginia businesses are preparing to open their doors as the state order to close non-essential businesses ends on May 4th.
“We’ve been bombarded with calls and messages and people wanting in,” said Owner Gina Lucky. There are several of us already booked ahead of time, we have 6 weeks of appointments.”
After a decade of being in business, Gina Lucky is the Owner of Twisted Scissors In Oak Hill. She is one of many local owners who had to close their doors due to COVID-19. Now she is preparing to re-open on May 4th and is gearing up to put her many years of experience back to work.
“It’s probably going to take a while to get everything back up running right. Fortunately, we have really great people and we all share if we need it to. I’m sure we have what we need, I just don’t know how soon we will be to replenish that stock,” said Lucky.
Along with Coronavirus fears, Gina is also concerned about delayed shipments on necessary supplies. Gina says based on the salon’s current stock, the salon would only be open for another month. Gina said for her opening her doors means the world to her.
“I’m so very excited, I have missed my clients and friends. A lot of people don’t realize that we view our clients as friends. We get to know them on a personal level, and not being able to see them every 6 weeks like we’re accustomed to has been pretty hard on us,” said Lucky.
Re-opening hair salons are part of phase two of Governor Justice’s plan to re-open the state.
