The head of Denmark's health service posted a picture of himself with a new military-style buzzcut on social media on Sunday, before admonishing Danes to, like him, cut their own hair and then send the money to their hairdressers.
“I cut my own hair with a machine, and it's a bit uneven at the back,” Søren Brostrøm, Director General of the Danish Health Authority wrote on Twitter. 
 
“I felt bad for my hairdresser Alaa-Eddine, who has shut down his business, but who will at least get the bonus of fixing skew-whiff haircuts when he opens again. So I sent him what I usually pay him over MobilePay.” 
 
 
Brian Mikkelsen, Director General of the Danish Chamber of Commerce saluted Brostrøm for his public spriritedness. 
 
“It's very noble, what Brostrøm is suggesting,” he said. “If you  withdraw from contact like this nad use the money you save to sso that you still have a business to go to to have your hair cut of buy your clothes.” 
 
He said that when he himself needed a trim, he aimed to follow Brostrøm's example. 
 
“We need small, independent busineses in Denmark. It's not just haridressers, but menswear stories and other indepdendents which  are part of our culture in Denmark. It's important that we all back them up.”
