Fringe trims and piercings: what IMAGE staffers are planning for June 29

Fringe trims and piercings: what IMAGE staffers are planning for June 29

June 29 can’t come quick enough for Team IMAGE: here’s what we’re looking forward to in the next phase of lockdown easing


Where will you be on June 29? Have you made your hairdressers appointment weeks in advance? Already booked your cinema seat? Or just waiting to walk around the city and feel a little more normal again?

Team IMAGE, although we’ve loved parts of the lockdown, have been going stir crazy too. Here, the team shares where they’re planning to spend the first day of Phase 3.

“I gave myself a haircut in the early days of lockdown. It was only meant to be a trim but I struggled to get it even. Twenty minutes and four inches later, I was left with a lopsided lob that no amount of styling product could fix. On the morning of the 29th, I’ll be waiting patiently for Aviary Lane to open their doors and fix my DIY disaster. And if I can get an appointment for a pedicure nearby, well, all the better.”

Katie Byrne, Digital Editor

 

I’m fraught with indecision at the best of times, so the sudden choice of things to do on June 29th is already plaguing me. Should I get that ear piercing I’ve been thinking about during lockdown? Try out a real yoga class after months of using an app? Experience the pure thrill of eating a meal anywhere but at my kitchen table? I think, however, what I’ve been craving most recently is driving to a quiet beach and just hanging out there for the day. Go for a walk, maybe even a dip if the weather’s good. So that’s at the top of my list once the travel restrictions are lifted.

Megan Burns, Staff Writer

I really miss going out and eating in a café or restaurant, especially during the day when it’s a little quieter and you can get really great food. I’ve been loving being able to see more of friends and family over the last few weeks,  and while their homemade banana bread is great and all, it can’t beat fancy cakes and tea in a bricks-and-mortar café, surrounded by actual people. Buzzing.

Erin Lindsay, Deputy Digital Editor

 

First things first, I am scheduling an eyebrow wax and haircut. I almost took the kitchen scissors to my hair a good few times during lockdown, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. (Thank god, I didn’t!). Then I am taking my boyfriend out for a proper dinner, relishing in the fact that neither of us have to do dishes afterwards, and staying at a hotel in town. It’s about time I got away from the house, even if it is just a pampering staycation.
