He said: “It’s been a very hectic couple of months and I’m so happy with how everything’s turned out, I’ve had time to settle now and realise that the space actually looks really good.

“I’ve worked for other people for such a long time so it’s so nice to finally do something for yourself.

“It’s early days and we’re all still settling in – but I’m sure it will feel like a second home in a couple of weeks.”

Lewis is currently studying trichology, a holistic approach to scalp and hair health, which he hopes to integrate into the salon’s offerings.

He believes this service, which treats conditions such as alopecia and psoriasis, is underrepresented in Suffolk and aims to be the first in Bury to provide it.
