Free haircuts provided to 500 Hanoi doctors

Understanding the hardships of frontline forces, Andre Lecharoux, owner of a hair salon on Nha Chung Street, Hanoi, asked his students and colleagues to give free haircuts to 500 doctors and nurses at Bach Mai Hospital.

As they have to work all day in protective clothing, tidy hair is necessary for medical workers these days. As Hanoi is under social distancing, haircut services are unavailable.

Andre Lecharoux and his group decided to go to Bach Mai Hospital to give free haircuts to health workers on the spot.

Before going to the hospital, 19 barbers were tested for Covid 19 to ensure that they were free from the virus.

Hair stylists worked from 8am until midnight. Most male doctors wanted to keep their hair as short as possible and some decided to shave their heads for convenience at work while female doctors wanted both nice and tidy hair.

Dr. Tran Song Giang, Head of Social Affairs Department of Bach Mai Hospital, told VietNamNet that nearly 170 medical staff of Bach Mai Hospital left Hanoi to go to HCM City on the morning of August 18. Before leaving, they had received warm encouragement from people in general, including those working in other fields like Andre Lecharoux's group.

"Hair stylists worked enthusiastically, even in difficult conditions. They stood to work from 8 am to 9 pm. During the epidemic, our health workers’ hair grew long. Nearly 500 staff and doctors of Bach Mai Hospital had a haircut," Dr. Giang said.

This is the fifth time that Bach Mai Hospital has sent its staff to support Ho Chi Minh City, with a total of nearly 500 health workers so far.
