Beauty therapist Sarah McCutcheon has told her customers she would not be offering treatments to anyone has received a Covid-19 vaccination because she wants her clients to ‘feel safe’
A beauty therapist in Glasgow has caused controversy, after announcing she will not administer treatments to anyone who has received a Covid-19 jab – despite the vast number of adults having already had their first jab.
Sarah McCutcheon, who runs Wellness and Wellbeing With Sarah, took to her business’ Facebook page, where she announced: “We will not conduct treatments on any vaccinated person.”
On Instagram, Sarah shared another post, from a salon in Australia, which read, “We are not your hairdresser if you have had the Covid vax.” Alongside the post, she added: “We agree and will not conduct massages or treatments on any vaccinated people.”

When questioned by a follower over why she had chosen to take this stance with her business, Sarah explained: “Many of my loyal long term clients follow a very natural path and I want to ensure they feel safe in the environment that they come to relax in.
“There is no long-term data to secure us at this moment in time, there are too many related illnesses, they are experimental vaccines and have caused many injury!”
However, the national beauty trade body has spoken out about businesses taking this stance, by pointing out that it goes against government policy implemented to keep customers safe from the ongoing pandemic.
The National Hair and Beauty Federation said it closely follows Covid-19 guidance issued by the Scottish and UK governments, including that around the vaccine roll-out.
Around 34.2 million people in the UK have received both doses of a Covid vaccine, including 2.8 million people in Scotland. Meanwhile, more than 45.7 million people in the UK have received their first jab, including 90% of adults in Scotland.
