Various beauty services — including barbershops, salons and tanning beds — got the go-ahead from Gov. Greg Abbott to reopen Friday, with new recommended rules outlined by the governor’s task force.

The Tuesday announcement is the second phase of Texas’ reopening and comes 10 days earlier than the governor’s original mid-May projection. Initially, Abbott said he would loosen more business restrictions on May 18 as long as the state saw "two weeks of data to confirm no flare-up of COVID-19."

Last Friday, the governor allowed some other businesses — like retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters and malls — to reopen with limited occupancy.

More reopenings — gyms, nonessential manufacturers and offices — are set for May 18. Last week, Abbott had promised that bars would also be opened soon. However, on Tuesday he stopped short of putting a date on allowing bars to reopen because experts are still figuring out how to do so safely.

Here’s how this next round of reopenings will work:
