Hairdressers, barbers and nail salons in the North will reopen on July 6th.
They were forced to close in March when lockdown began.
The Northern Ireland Executive says they can reopen on July 6th, which is a number of weeks earlier than the Republic's timeline.
They're not due to reopen here from July 20th.
The National Public Health Emergency Team met today, to discuss the possible earlier opening of hairdressers and barbers.
In April, authorities here and in the North agreed on a memo of understanding which aimed to create greater co-operation in a number of areas including public health measures.
So maybe it's a sign of things to come?
