With people starting to think about where they will visit next week when restrictions lift one salon owner says it’s important to support independent small businesses.

Hairdressers, beauticians and nail technicians will also be able to get back to work.
Christina Dawson owns The Beauty Bar in Carcroft, she is getting ready to reopen next week.
She said: “It’s going to be so nice to get back to normal.
“I can’t wait to see our clients and have a catch up.
“I think we’ve all missed that human contact.”
The Beauty Bar will reopen on Tuesday, April 13.
Christina is urging people to support businesses like hers next week when people will once again be allowed to return to non essential shops and services.
“It’s really important to support those who have struggled the most this year,” she said.
“The self employed have had a harder time with things such as furlough and rent.
“I myself have started to visit greengrocers and markets instead of the big super markets.”
Christina is hoping for a big boom in business next week - the likes of which she usually only sees at Christmas.
“People have missed treating themselves to beauty treatments,” she continued.
“It’s so beneficial to people’s well being and mental health.
“I imagine that we’re going to be pretty busy - but I’m ready for it.”
The salon is run by just three staff who Christina says have a tight knit bond.
