The shop is owned by Lorraine Leece and she said: “I was browsing the internet one night, saw the advert for the shop and here we are.

“[Owning my own salon] was not something that I ever thought I would do. It’s not a dream or anything, it was just an opportunity that I thought why not?”

Lorraine grew up in South Africa but moved to East Devon in 2012 and has spent the last seven and a half years working in Honiton.

She said is was a good time to open the shop and that the town needed to regenerate that side of the High Street.
