A hairdresser has created a barrier between herself and her customers by using an umbrella as a shield.

The Dutch stylist chopped holes in the umbrella so she could see through the material, as she continues to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

A viral video shows the unnamed woman working on her clients in the busy salon, with her hands adorned with a pair of disposable gloves.

Two clips were posted on the salon's Facebook page showing the woman hard at work on two different clients. In the first she is seen snipping away at hair, then she removes her gloves to thread another customer's eyebrows.

Users poked fun at the woman's antics, with one commenting: ''You're crazy.''

Medics say wearing a properly-fitting mask will not necessarily protect against the virus, and an umbrella with holes in it will be significantly less effective.
