Before moving to Grantham Mel worked in London for 20 years. She is originally from Yorkshire and intended to go to London only for a year.

As well as hairdressing, House of Hair will do nails, eyebrows and lashes. Mel said she decided on the name The House of Hair because she says the salon has a ‘homely feel’. She said the service would be ‘professional’ and and ‘reasonably priced’.

Mel is being helped by her friend of several years Katie Jude-Plant who has taken on the front of house duties.

Mel said: “I have been doing this for 20-plus years so I thought it was time I did something for myself.

“Katie was a client of mine several years ago and we became the best of friends and it is good to have her helping me out.”
