A HAIR dresser from Aston Fields has opened her own barber shop in her hometown.

After 15 years in the industry, 37-year-old Clair Gossage has launched 'Sherwood Barbers' at an old storage room in Aston Fields Industrial Estate.

"I've been trading in Aston Fields for 14 years and fancied a new challenge," Clair told the Advertiser. "There isn't a barber shop in the area and the location's perfect.

Bromsgrove Advertiser:

"The snow ruined our big plans for the launch on Saturday, but people were still coming in saying how nice it looked, and how there is a need for a barber shop in the area."

The Sherwood Road barbers offers walk-in appointments only, priced between £8 for OAPs to £15 for a gent's beard and hair trim.
