Solihull News - - FAITH MATTERS - DAVID IR­WIN Lo­cal Democ­racy Re­porter

A SO­CIAL en­ter­prise hopes that its plans to open a cafe in Soli­hull will pro­vide res­i­dents with a long- awaited “com­mu­nity hub”.

Changes UK is seek­ing a change of use to a cof­fee shop at 242 Lyn­don Road, with Small Changes, the chil­dren’s bou­tique it cur­rently runs at the premises, to move next door.

The scheme would also see the cre­ation of com­mu­nity rooms on the first floor, avail­able for hire, and a spe­cially- de­signed sen­sory room, for chil­dren and adults with con­di­tions such as autism. Both units would be ex­tended to the rear.

Sub­ject to coun­cil plan­ning per­mis­sion, it is in­tended to com­plete the project early next year.

Steve Dixon, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Changes UK, said ven­ture, which Mr Dixon has said will serve baris­tastyle cof­fee.

The premises will be staffed by a mix­ture of paid staff and vol­un­teers.

Changes UK was set up to as­sist those bat­tling ad­dic­tion and has been help­ing de­liver sup­port ser­vices in the bor­ough for more than a decade, work­ing along­side the Birm­ing­ham and Soli­hull Men­tal Health NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.

In re­cent weeks the com­mu­nity in­ter­est com­pany ( CIC) has paid trib­ute to lo­cal peo­ple for their help, fol­low­ing a break- in at the Lyn­don Road chari- ty shop on Oc­to­ber 31. Thieves made off with a till and dona­tions, but the premises quickly re­opened to be ready for the Christ­mas rush.

The plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for Changes Cof­fee is ex­pected to be con­sid­ered by Soli­hull plan­ners in the com­ing weeks. . CELEBS do it, In­sta­gram­mers do it, makeup artists do it, and there’s thou­sands of YouTube tu­to­ri­als show­ing us how to do it.

There’s re­ally no es­cap­ing ‘ con­tour­ing’ to ac­cen­tu­ate cheek­bones and cre­ate a pic­ture- per­fect face.

But did you know you can con­tour your hair?

Con­tour­ing your face can change your skin tone, sculpt your face shape and en­hance your fea­tures and colour­ing your hair can do all of that too.

Colour for your hair isn’t just about shade choice, but about place­ment of colour and how it can en­hance the shape of your hair cut.

If one of your con­cerns is flat hair with the power of con­tour­ing, you can give the il­lu­sion of struc­ture and form and with clever light and shadow colour place­ment we can make your hair look like it has more vol­ume. At Aes­thet­ics we’ve al­ways been proud of our colour ser­vice ( and have won nu­mer­ous awards to prove our ex­per­tise too) of­fer­ing be­spoke colours, shades and tech­niques to suit our cus­tomers.

To us, hair colour is sim­ply makeup for the hair and with the power of con­tour­ing with hair colour, we can cre­ate def­i­ni­tion, give the il­lu­sion of a dif­fer­ent face shape and ac­cen­tu­ate fea­tures you’d like to fo­cus on, for ex­am­ple long nar­row faces high­light­ing hair at the side can make it ap­pear a lit­tle wider, while darker pieces on top and un­der­neath can soften the length of the face.

To find out what we can do for your hair book a con­sul­ta­tion with one of our colour tech­ni­cians by call­ing the sa­lon on 0121 707 8866.
