She then went on to manage a number of salons for a global hairdressing brand that first came to the UK in 1990 and has since grown to more than 80 locations nationwide.

Jane said: “I was quickly attracted to joining Kersey Hairdressing. It’s a fabulous, very well appointed salon in a great location, surrounded by lots of new housing development which means there’s huge scope to attract new clients.

"John and his team have done an exceptional job over the years, laying fantastic foundations which I hope to now build on, making the salon not just somewhere people come for a haircut but for an experience too.”

John Kersey opened the Grimsargh Salon in 1996 after successfully building and selling a large, independent regional chain of hairdressers. He was trained by world-renowned hair stylist Vidal Sassoon.

John said: "Our salon is one of the largest in Lancashire, and has been a central feature in Grimsargh for 25 years, attracting long-standing, prized clients from across the county and beyond. I look forward to watching Jane enhance our appeal even further, and am excited about the changes Kersey Hairdressing will undergo with her help."
