“It was quite an old fashioned place then so we had a lot of work to do to refurbish it.”

She said the decor may have changed over the years along with fashions but some things stay the same.

She said: “The classic bob cut has stood the test of time.

“The perms and sets and wild colours have gone, its a more natural look people want now.

“We do all the beauty services, spray tans, nails, eyebrows, hair extensions. It has been a great ten years and I would like to thank the girls and the customers and everyone who has supported me.”
