Beauty salons see 50% drop in turnover

Turnover for beauticians has dropped by roughly 50% compared to last fall, as traffic has decreased most in larger and near-border cities, Andrea Stuhl, vice president of the First Hungarian Association of Qualified Beauty Professionals, told leading business daily Világgazdaság.

Others have had to close due to declining traffic, but there are smaller settlements where the decline is minimal.
