Have you noticed any changes over the past six months? The town did quieten down a bit for a while but it's getting better now. Where did it all begin? I started hairdressing in Bri-Anns in 1995 and i opened
my own salon in 2000 and I've been here since then. Work/Life balance I have two kids. Ryan (10) and Lucy (4). I have a wonderful husband and parents that help me when I'm busy. Alan Sugar, Donald Trump or Bill Cullen? Bill Cullen. Best piece of advice you have ever received. Look after your customers because they are your bread and butter.
