SOPHIE Swallow has embarked on an exciting new business venture by opening her first hairdressing salon.
Lola Hair Studio, at 31 Stamford Street, Mossley, belongs to 26-year-old Sophie who lives in Grotton and was raised in Springhead.
After a lengthy apprenticeship – she began as a Saturday junior in Delph – Sophie has decided to venture out on her own.
Sophie worked at Razors Edge, Manchester, between the ages of 16-22 years and since then has been self-employed, renting a chair at a salon in Greenfield.
But after deciding to launch her own business, she secured a former children’s clothes shop and since January has spent £10,000 transforming it into a state-of-the-art women’s salon.
Sophie will be joined by best friend and self-employed stylist Sophie Kay, 28, who is from Scouthead and currently living in Lees.
It was Sophie Kay’s father, a builder, who carried out the refurb of the salon.
The salon is open from Tuesday to Saturday, with late bookings up to 8pm on Thursday.
uu Customers can call Lola Hair Salon on 01457 839911 or simply walk in for a free consultation.
There is an official launch on Sunday, March 18 when there will be special offers, raffle and cupcakes.
