First Minister Alex Salmond took time out of his busy schedule to open new local business, Rococo Hair Design in his constituency.
Based at The Store, Foveran, Rococo, will be owner, Lindsay Norrie’s first business after working in the hair and beauty industry for five years.
At over 100 hundreds years old, the building certainly wasn’t new, but that didn’t phase Lindsay’s husband, Gary, who carried out most of the renovation work in a speedy 13 days.
Mr Salmond said: “I was delighted to cut the ribbon and officially open Rococo’s doors – I am always happy to show my support for new local businesses in my constituency.
“Given the salon’s swift refurbishment time, it’s clear that Lindsay and Gary make quite the team and I’m sure that this commendable work ethic will be reflected in the running of the business.
“Small companies are at the heart of our economy and I am pleased that a new generation of business owners in the constituency are emerging in spite of the difficult economic climate.”
Rococo offer the latest hair smoothing systems, hair extensions and nail treatments.
Lindsay said: “We are looking to offer customers a special treat whilst out visiting The Store or passing by. The salon is going to have a relaxed, calming atmosphere, allowing guests to enjoy a coffee and cake from The Store and get pampered whilst they overlook the beautiful countryside.”
