Melanie Cowell has renovated a former ale shop in the Moor Park area.

The 28-year-old says she wants Amorae Hair in Lovatt Road, off Garstang Road, to become something for the community.

She said: “We’ve only been open three weeks and there’s been a great reception already.

“My friend has opened a beauty salon across the road a week before too, so it’s brought both these shops back into use.

“Plenty of people have been in and said it’s so nice to see things back open again. There’s not masses around here.”

The salon employs Melanie at the moment but she’s looking to take on a trainee and also take on another hairdresser.

She took the plunge on her own business after originally leaving salons to go into mobile hairdressing.

She said: “I built up the mobile business and then I saw this shop – and thought there’s nothing else really round here.

“It took about two and a half months to do the work to get it ready for opening.”
