A new Welwyn Garden City salon is welcoming residents and shoppers to its grand opening party today.

The former Swintons Insurance shop on Howardsgate, which has been empty since 2016, is now houses a hair and beauty salon.

Mum-of-two Aisha Khayat is expanding her business, The Salon Collection, which already has a base in St Albans.

The new Welwyn Garden City shop called ‘The Salon’ will kick off its grand opening at 5pm until 8pm today.

The 33-year-old says she is “super excited” to open in Welwyn Garden City.

She added: “It’s all a new venture and it’s a bit nerve-wracking.”

The event will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony with mayor Barbara Fitzsimon, followed by Champagne and canapes, giveaways and gifts for the guests.

Attendees may register for a chance to win a Champagne day pampering gift basket and complimentary salon service by entering the salon’s charity raffle.

The raffle will be raising money for Mind in Mid Herts, a mental health voluntary association.

Aisha and Ezzat, who jointly own the business, also own one of Hertfordshire’s first toxic free, organic nail salon, The Salon Nail Boutique in St Albans and a male grooming salon.
