A new salon has opened its doors in uphill Lincoln, which also saved seven hairdressers facing possible redundancy.

Cream Hairstyling was set up by Mandy Marshall after hearing colleagues were worried about their jobs.

While Marshall also runs Mandy Marshall Equine Dental Services, she saw a business opportunity, and the salon recently moved into a new premises.

Situated on Outer Circle Road, Cream will offer various services to both men and women.

Marshall said: “I shall continue to run Mandy Marshall Equine Dental Services as well as spending time growing Cream Hairstyling.

“The best thing about our new salon is that it is in a superb position, right on the doorstep of hundreds of homes and businesses.

“It is also next to bustling food outlets, within sight of constantly passing traffic and, of course, it’s great to have free parking spaces right outside the door.”

The unit was let to the company by chartered surveyors Banks Long & Co.

Surveyor Matthew Brooks said: “This deal have given Mandy the opportunity to put her stamp on brand new premises, which have come with a new lease.

“Neighbouring businesses include Domino’s Pizza and Fillets, so this part of Outer Circle Road – directly opposite the busy Carlton Centre, with its national-name retailers and other niche businesses – serves a large catchment area and has the potential to attract lots of customers.”
