There are a lot of things we miss about pre-lockdown life that we probably took for granted including going to the gym or pub after work or starting the weekend off with a swim at the local pool.
High up that list for many will be trips to the hairdresser and Amy Webb will be making a triumphant return when her Stroud salon reopens for business on Monday.
Candy salon has gone from strength to strength since opening in Stroud during the summer of 2020 and has now added gender-neutral pricing.
Amy, who also runs Candy in Nailsworth has a raft of hairdressing experience, which recently saw her finalised for five industry awards.
And Amy can’t wait to get back to work as the country eases out of lockdown, she said: “Hairdressing is an incredible career and it’s important to keep breaking down that stigma that hairdressing is a cop-out job, and also show young people that you no longer have to be in a big London salon to get recognition and opportunity.
“We may be in little old Stroud but we are making huge waves in the industry, which makes me super proud,” Amy said.
“I’ve been making some big changes to all aspects of the business, taking into account all aspects of the clients’ journey, which has been such a positive thing for Candy.
“Hairdressers have been advised to review and update their policies with regards to skin testing and Covid 19 safety procedures in line with government guidance.”
