Along with Gary’s wife Claire, who is a colour degree specialist, and stylists Holly and Danielle from Tryangles, Lizzie believes the uni-sex shop will offer something for everyone.

Lizzie said: “We’re really proud to have gained the five stars, especially as we aren’t a really big chain. People can rely on getting a good standard every time they come in.”
