Hairdressers and barbers will still be allowed to operate, amidst the Federal Government's most recent measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus on Tuesday night.
However, beauty therapists, tanning, waxing and nail salons have had to close.
Hairdressers and barbers will be able to keep open under a new rule that will limit appointments to 30 minutes while adhering to the social distancing limitations of keeping 1.5 metres from others at all times.
Bathurst Barbers owner Sam Peacock has already been able to restrict the amount of people in the shop at one time, thanks to its SLIKR online booking program, meaning customers only show up when it's time for their appointment.
"The way we run our shop with SLIKR means we don't normally have more than two people waiting in the shop at any given time now," she said.
"We're just making sure we're washing our hands more often and making sure customers are washing their hands when they come in too."
A post on Bathurst Barbers' Facebook page on Wednesday morning encouraged clients to be patient.
"Given the updated social distancing regulations, we have only one staff member working," the post said.
"Some services are not available. Please be respectful by not asking our staff to spend more than 30 minutes on your service.
"We ask everyone to wait outside. Track your start time online and we will continue to thoroughly clean between every client."
However, the Australian Hairdressing Council, which Bathurst Barber's is affiliated with, has called the decision to leave hairdressers and barbers open as "outrageous".
"Around 40,000 hairdressers and barbers continue to be at risk of as they are directly exposed to large numbers of the public," Australian Hairdressing Council CEO Sandy Chong said.
"Why beauty was shut down but hairdressing wasn't, I don't understand.
"The Fair Work Act, as it stands, makes it costly for businesses if they choose to stand down without the government's directive.
"As for the 30 minute appointment rule, that cuts out most services that salons offer their clients, particularly colour.
"The Federal Government must close hairdressing barbering down for the safety of our workers and the community."
