Why Don't Barbers Wear Mask in Sydney?

I am badly in need of a haircut. I went to four different barbers today, but I didn't enter the store because none of then was wearing a mask.

I thought it would be a logical thing to do because:

  1. The person getting a hair cut can't wear it, as it it will be hard to cut hair with mask
  2. Social distancing cannot be maintained as barber can't cut your hair from 1.5m away

The only way to reduce the risk is if barber wears a mask.

Am I missing something here? Is anyone aware of the reason why they wouldn't wear it?
