Success Stories

Jo follows her heart and proves it’s all about Location, Location, Location.

Ex College Hairdressing Instructor takes over a local hairdresser that has been in one family for nearly 50 years.

Jo Murray has been in business for the past year but for reasons beyond her control had to relocate her thriving salon nearer home.

It is not every day that a Salon comes on the market that has a 50 year trading history, but this is precisely what happened for Jo when she came across Athena Hairdressing at 280 Waterloo Road, Blackpool.

Passionate about her profession, she now has twice the space to offer her service and when combined with ease of location for local residents (as well as being nearer home for her) it is a winning formula.

Jo said “I could not have achieved my dream without the help and support of my family combined with support from Blackpool Council’s Get Started Business Support program.

It was so reassuring to know that help was on hand with everything from 121 support to free Enterprise Courses.

It is my intention to extend my product and service range and recruit more staff, and hopefully one day soon turns the salon into an academy.

Life is so exciting”

It is always pleasing to hear of a client’s progression and success.

Location, Location, Location

Three little words that can make all the difference.
