As businesses fall left and right to the coronavirus ban-hammer, barbers are breathing a sigh of relief that they will be allowed to remain open - albeit with severe new restrictions.
Under the new rules barbers and hairdressers can only service a customer for 30 minutes and keep their customers four metres away from each other.
The restrictions makes a hairdresser's job nigh-on impossible, according to Rendezvous Hair Design owner Stephen Wooden.
"No hairdresser is able to follow that rule," Mr Wooden said.
"There's a lot of grey area. Hopefully [Scott Morrison] will make the rules a bit clearer, but maybe he won't."
Mr Wooden has been sticking to a stringent cleaning regiment and only serving customers one-on-one, but his bookings have still continued to evaporate as fear of coronavirus rises.
The story is much the same for Ross C's owner and barber Ross Clay, who has seen fewer and fewer people through his doors over the last two weeks.
During that time Mr Clay has heard many sad stories from customers who have lost their livelihoods to the coronavirus lockdown.
"A lot of people lost jobs - so far we've had about 10-20 per cent of people who've lost work or have gotten reduced hours," Mr Clay said.
"A lot of them work at the pubs, cafes, restaurants. I feel really sorry for them."
Because of the new rules Mr Clay has had to drastically cut down his menu, eliminating face shaves, neck shaves, fades - anything that takes longer than 30 minutes.
Mr Clay said Wagga might not be in this mess if the Australian government had been quicker to curb the coronavirus threat.
"I'm upset at the government for not closing up the borders a lot earlier, not doing more, not quarantining more," Mr Clay said.
Beauty parlours have not been spared the ban-hammer, which leaves Sirona beauty therapist Chelsea Sutton without any work for the foreseeable future.
The parlour had only opened for business two months ago, but was forced to close its doors on Wednesday.
"It's a bit sad. We thought we might get a few more days," Miss Sutton said.
"Everyone else is in the same boat."
