    Outdoor restaurants, pub gardens, and some other non-essential businesses opened across the UK on Monday as a part of Boris Johnson’s staged plan to get the country out of coronavirus lockdown. And hairdressers – they are also free to trim people's hair as well.

    A sip of beer in a pub garden with friends may not be the biggest thing some Britons have been craving since the start of the country's third COVID lockdown. Many people were apparently praying for something else – that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson would finally be free to get his blonde locks cut.

    And it seems that this dream has come true: BoJo turned up in the House of Commons to pay tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh with a new haircut shortly after his spokesman confirmed that the miracle had indeed taken place.

    Johnson went to the hairdresser at the very first opportunity following the easing of lockdown, with some non-essential shops reopening, alongside beauty parlours, indoor gyms, pools, pub gardens, and outdoor restaurants. The prime minister was first photographed with a new trim while leaving 10 Downing Street on Monday before he headed to Parliament.

    As the first photos and videos showing his new style emerged online, some netizens went ecstatic.
