The Irish Hairdressers Federation is calling for their sector to be allowed re-open for the fully vaccinated.
It says the move could act as a major boost to elderly people and healthcare workers after a difficult year.
The Federation believes hair salons have extensively reviewed health & safety guidelines and have shown they're a safe environment.
Danielle Kennedy is the President of the IHF and she says these groups deserve a boost.
She told Midwest News that the public have realized that the hair industry is arguably the most essential non-essential service.
