Change of scene for Lincoln hairdressing business

Three new jobs have been created by a Lincoln hairdresser following a relocation move, earning felicitations from Lincoln BIG for opening new careers prospects in the process.

Neil McCluskey has restyled his business by snapping-up smart new premises within a complex of luxury student apartments, which are situated just across the road from his old salon.

What started out as a few jokes while builders were constructing Jackson & Jackson Developments’ Water House in Water Lane, soon turned into a serious business opportunity for Neil. He explains: “I watched the progress being made on the development of 15 flats and the workmen kept joking, “we’re busy getting your salon ready.”

“I realised the unit at the foot of the flats would be absolutely perfect for Hairworks. I was fully aware that my existing salon was well overdue for a refit and felt that this move would be an easy transition for us and less disruptive to the business and its clients.”

Now Neil and his team of nine stylists and two apprentices are enjoying the benefits of working in bright, modern and slightly more spacious surroundings. His quick actions ensured he snapped up the property from other interested parties.

On the new location, Neil adds: “Water Lane is in a really good location, because it is close to the city’s High Street. We catch passing trade and we have already attracted new clients who love the look of our new salon. I strongly believe that, while anyone can take on an empty unit and kit it out as a salon, that your staff are the key to a really successful business and I never lose sight of that.”

Neil still owns his former Water Lane premises, which could soon be revamped and home to a new tenant.
