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.

“The self employed have had a harder time with things such as furlough and rent.

The salon is getting ready to reopen next week.

“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.

The salon staff can't wait to get people back into the salon.

“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.
