Unsung hair heroes and superstar snippers have completed their first week of post lockdown business in the resort

Hundreds of stylists and barbers have rejoiced at the opportunity to welcome customers back to their chairs and salons, with many now being booked up weeks in advance as a wave of split ends and wild hairstyles are brought back under control

While most of the plaudits have been shone down on the hospitality industry, Southport has been abuzz with bustling barbershops and salons who are returning to work to boost the resort’s stalled economy

Some barbers however are still welcoming walk ins. Steve’s Barbers in Bold Street is one such barber and has seen growing trade in the last week due to the increasing demand for a haircut
