Red Balloon Wednesday Across Hair Salons and Other Beauty

Salons posting to social media with hashtag #FordFailsBeauty


You could see red balloons around the region today, as Wednesday marks Red Balloon Wednesdays.

This initiative calls on Premier Doug Ford on his failures on the hard working professionals in the beauty and personal care community according to ABA Canada and the Ontario Professional Hairstylist Association.

As part of the provinces new reopening plan, hair salons are not permitted to open until phase 2 which would start once 70 percent of Ontarians have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine with 20 percent being fully vaccinated.

Those wanting to show their support for hair salons and other beauty shops are encouraged to tie a red balloon to their home or salon.

You can then share your balloon on social media, using the hashtag #FordFailsBeauty with a specific filter being provided via Facebook.
