WATCH: Midnight queues formed as The Grafton Barber reopened its doors

James Fenton

The Grafton Barber is just one of the hairdressers reopening today after three long months of Covid-19 restrictions.

While many will queue up at Dublin’s various Grafton Barber outlets throughout the day, it seems some people just couldn’t wait for that much-needed haircut. The company reopened its doors in a number of locations at midnight last night and judging by the videos posted on social media, there were a number of Dubliners keen to get a trim in the early hours…

If you’d told us at the start of 2020 that people would be lining up at midnight to get a haircut, we’d have been checking what you put in your tea.

The last customers were taken at 2am before a well-earned rest for the barbers of Grafton. The company has also confirmed that over 70s and vulnerable people will be given priority on Wednesdays until noon.
