A HAIR salon in Stroud is celebrating 50 years in business by holding a charity day.

Vogue, in Gloucester Street, was set up by Sue Hickman back in 1965.

In its 50-year history, the salon has moved just once, staying in the same street and taking over the premises next door.

The business is now owned by Louise Price, who started working for Vogue 34 years ago and bought the salon when Sue retired in 2000.

Louise said: “We decided to celebrate Vogue’s 50th anniversary with a charity day.

“We’re donating the takings from our busiest day next week to two charities, the Pied Piper Appeal, which supports the Children’s Centre at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, and the Oncology Department at Cheltenham General Hospital.

“Sue’s husband Peter was the first chairman of the Pied Piper Appeal, and my mum Edna Powell has just been receiving treatment at the Oncology Department which is why we’re supporting these good causes.”

The salon will be celebrating all week, from Monday, April 7, with customers being treated to a glass of champagne, a cupcake and a goody bag from L’Oréal.
