I have been collecting hairdressing memorabilia for many years and now I have found a home for some of the items, in my salon in Elm Avenue. It started when a customer found a Hairdressing Book published in the '30s for 30p in a jumble sale and gave it to me. Sadly I have since misplaced this however from then on I decided to collect small items for posterity. They have been stored in my loft until I knew where and how to display them. I have now been able to put together a nice selection in my small cabinet at the Salon. (Maybe I will graduate to a bigger cabinet, or... who knows!) Thanks to many clients who have found things whilst in the process of clearing out their or their parent's lofts when moving houseand who have donated their vintage hair dryers, tongs, etc to me, knowing I have a sentimentality about our precious history of hairdressing. Please come and look and reminisce.
 
Many Thanks Kay McIlroy
