A person in the process of getting their hair cut. This emoji is intended to be gender-neutral, but is commonly shown as a girl or woman smiling, with scissors shown open next to the hair on her head.
Windows previously displayed this emoji as a comb and scissors, instead of a person having their hair cut.
Person Getting Haircut was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name “Haircut” and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
💇 Cutting Hair
The Haircut emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.
Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
