A HAIR salon in Great Sankey is celebrating its 15th birthday in the community.

Fuss Salon on Park Road, first opened its doors on December 1, 2004 and offers hair, nail, massage and tanning services.

Friends Joeanne Bostock and Helen Taylor set up the business together and Helen remained there until she sadly passed away last year. 

Joeann, from Great Sankey, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their loyal support over the years.

"I took the shop over from my mum who ran a florist there so it was nice to carry on a shop and serve the community.

"Helen and I started the salon from scratch and had never worked in one before.

"The staff have been with us for years too and some have gone and come back which is lovely, it is like a home for them.

"It is a unique and fun salon and a lot of our customers tell us it doesn't feel like a normal salon and they are very comfortable here."

To celebrate their 15 years, the salon gave away 15 free haircuts to lucky competition winners.

On December 1, clients, friends and family all visited the salon for a celebration.
