.Mr Mann said: 'It's been four months since the last day we cut hair so the feeling today is slight anxiety and slight worry, like 'is everything going to go to plan', but I'm also feeling really excited and happy because my shop is open again.'We start at 6am and finish at 8pm. I didn't fancy doing another 24-hour shift this time but we're open long enough. Last time we did 24 hours but what I've come to realise is doing shifts like that is not good for you.'He said customers have been delighted to be able to book haircuts again.Mr Mann said: 'It's mental health, getting a haircut and making yourself feel good is a big part of life, and if you can't make yourself feel good and you only get it from a small variety of places then you're not going to be in a particularly good place.'His brother Maxx Mann was one of the first people in Scotland to get a haircut on Monday and was delighted with the result.

It's been a long few months but it's always worth the wait if you know you're coming for Tony to cut your hair.'I usually get my hair cut one every week or once every 10 days so to go months and months without isn't ideal, I'm sure the general public probably feel the same.' Interior stylist Sue Berry, 67 and David Berry, 65,, meanwhile, picked up some plants for their garden which was 'looking a bit bare'.Mrs Berry said: 'I follow them on Facebook to see all the lovely plants online, but coming in person you see them all looking wonderfully healthy.'I was out yesterday painting the deck around the house, and today I've been asking for some advice about plants to go with our garden arch. We've been too long indoors.'They said it was 'fantastic' to be out as they had been shielding for much of last year, with Mrs Berry saying she was looking forward to being able to visit her mother in Merseyside.Teacher Chris Ross, 41, and his partner Jude also popped in for supplies to brighten up their new garden in Hyndland, saying: 'Over the last lockdown we spent a lot of time outside and hopefully this spring is as good.' Richard Lambert, the chief executive of the National Hair and Beauty Foundation, said: 'Obviously we're delighted that hair salons and barbershops can reopen on April 5, but we cannot understand why those offering beauty services have to wait until Apri 26.   People wear face masks as they look at plants at a store in Edinburgh as coronavirus restrictions begin to ease Shoppers arrived to a garden centre in Edinburgh today as some non-essential shops, including homeware stores and click-and-collect services, began to welcome customers once more Visits to hairdressers and barbers must be pre-booked in advance and customers flocked to get their long-awaited cuts as early as 6am across the country People arrive to Pentland Plants in Edinburgh as hundreds of Scots rushed to take advantage of the easing of restrictions today First Minister Nicola Sturgeon previously said she hopes the country will return to normality by the summer'The Scottish Government has offered no scientific or medical evidence to support a staggered decision.'Scottish hair and beauty businesses were hit harder than those in any other part of the UK, losing more than half of their turnover in 2020, yet still having to pay to keep their premises ready to return to. 'Even with all the financial support, the situation for many is now beyond precarious. They have already been closed for such a long time that they may not survive to reopen.'First Minister Nicola Sturgeon previously said she hopes the country will return to normality by the summer.Deputy First Minister John Swinney warned however: 'The virus is down but it's not yet out, and the last thing we need is to see it making a comeback and undoing all the progress from the massive effort and sacrifices we have all had to make.'While it's great news that garden centres and hairdressers are allowed to reopen, everyone needs to bear in mind that it doesn't mean the virus has gone away. 'My message is simple - enjoy the latest relaxing of the rules but remember to look out for each other, too.'   The stay at home order was lifted on Friday and replaced with guidance to 'stay local', which urges people to remain within their local authority area. On a visit to a garden centre in Perthshire, Mr Swinney said it is important to remember the virus is still circulating.He added: 'It's absolutely wonderful to be out and about again. After the long winter months of being cooped up inside, I know everyone will be keen to get back to our more normal lives.'We are seeing real progress in our fight against this dreadful pandemic. The hard sacrifices of the country - coupled with the fantastic effort of the vaccine programme getting jabs into arms of millions of Scots - is really paying dividends.' Monday's opening has been welcomed by retail groups but hospitality businesses have been more sceptical.The Scottish Beer & Pub Association said that pubs will have missed out on selling eight million pints at Easter due to the fact they are still required to remain closed.
