Red Angel Hair in Hyde is set to expand with a £10k loan from BFS that will include the launch of a private area for Muslim clients.
With 30 years of hairdressing experience, Vanessa Kovic launched her unisex salon on Market Street in Hyde earlier this year, offering a range of hair and beauty services including cuts, colour, pamper parties, make-up and StyleStation − a collection of quick and affordable up-dos for special occasions.
Vanessa is using her loan from BFS to expand her current range of services, including launching a new area that is dedicated to female Muslim clients who require a private area to remove their hijabs.
The funding will also be used to purchase more equipment, develop the salon’s website, invest in new signage and to bring on board additional stylists as the business continues to grow.
Vanessa said: “ I went to BFS because I wanted Red Angel Hair to be able to bring the kind of service, facilities and expertise to Hyde that people have traditionally only had access to in the city centre.
"John Cannon and the team at BFS worked through my business plan with me and helped me to quickly access the funding I need to take our services to the next level.”
