Though Mayor Lightfoot hasn’t set an exact date for a Chicago-specific Phase 3 reopening (she is reportedly moving the city’s reopening date later than the state’s), she has suggested that early June looks promising. If you’ve been itching for a date with a barber and can’t take another month of your wild mop, check out these 10 Chicago barbershops that plan to open in June at the onset of Phase 3.
