"We've been getting calls from out of state, Ohio, Kentucky, just people want to get in," said Ronda Oates, co-owner of Reflections Hair Salon. "There's going to be a buzz in here for sure these next few weeks."

The stylists at Reflections spent the weekend cleaning and disinfecting their workplace in order to reopen in accordance with Indiana's strict reopening regulations. These regulations include taking customers' temperatures, having people wear masks inside of the business and keeping customers outside of the business until it is their appointment time.

Like many people, the stylists at Reflections said they are eager to get back to work, and the fact that they are fully booked up until June means customers are ready to get back to the salon as well. In order to meet this demand, Oates said the stylists will work 12-hour days.

Reflections Hair Salon is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and you can call them at 812-537-1122 to make an appointment for next month.
