SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- One hairstylist said her prayers were answered when Gov. Kate Brown announced that barbershops and hair salons need to close their doors.

The stay at home order closes specific categories of retail businesses where close personal contact is difficult to avoid.

Kodi Mason is a hairstylist at Perfect Look in Springfield. She said she was hoping the order would come down. She said she has a 4-year-old son at home and could not practice social distancing at work.

She said just doing her job made her anxious and said business had already slowed before the order was announced.

Dorothy Watson was the last customer at Perfect Look. She said more people need to practice social distancing.

"I do feel for them, but hopefully, they can get unemployment in the meantime and be back to work before long," Watson said.

Mason said she still loves her jobs and clients and hopes to go back to it once it's safe.
