Peter Prosser phase three presents itself as a men’s salon, situated right next door to the main salon in Church Street, to which it now connects via a first floor doorway.
“I’d always admired the property,” says Peter. “It was a beautiful, traditional tobacconist shop, very Victorian in design with luxurious curved front windows and rich green glazed tiles. We were so pleased to be able to acquire the shop which we’ve sympathetically converted into a fabulous men’s salon, with four styling units at the front and a backwash area towards the back.
“Much to our delight when renovating the property, we found a boarded-up original Victorian wrought-iron spiral staircase, now restored for all to see. It leads you in style up to the first floor, where we’ve created a men’s colour department, parallel to the ladies’ colour floor. Hugely successful, business in our men’s salon shows an annual increase of about 38% year-on-year, so there’s every chance of us opening another men’s salon in the local area in the near future.”
