Staff stay at cut­ting edge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

FOUR mem­bers of staff who lost their jobs when a hair sa­lon in Hythe closed have been taken on by an­other busi­ness in the town. Bob Kent, owner of Hair­ways in the High Street, said the stylists had mainly older clients and other sa­lons were not in­ter­ested in em­ploy­ing them. “Older clients have as much right to have their hair done and we have main­tained the continuity for them,” he said. “One lady who comes in ev­ery week is 90 and we have quite a laugh with her.” The four mem­bers of staff have brought in around 100 clients. Hair­ways has been in Hythe for 27 years, and Mr Kent be­lieves it is the long­est es­tab­lished in the town. He has been in hair­dress­ing for 34 years and also owns Un­cle in Bou­verie Road West, Folke­stone; Evo­lu­tion in New Rom­ney High Street and sa­lons in Can­ter­bury and Dover.
