A young businesswoman has spoken of her pride as she prepares to celebrate the first anniversary of her hair salon in Diss.

Former Hartismere High School pupil Alice Cotter opened Lilys in Victoria Road last year at the age of 19.

And the salon owner said she was thrilled with her achievements since realising her dream and setting up her own business.

The 20-year-old will be celebrating the salon’s first anniversary with her clients on Saturday, October 27 at the salon on 30 Victoria Road from 6pm.

She said: “Our first year has been a huge success and every day our clientele is growing. Since I opened in October last year we have expanded greatly in all aspects of the salon. I have brought in lots of new services since we have opened by popular demand. Lots of which are new colouring services that are exclusive to Lilys in Diss.”

“Despite people’s reservations of opening a business at only 19, I am delighted with Lilys achievements in our first year.”

Miss Cotter said she had brought in a new member of the Lilys team, Lauren Harvey, who is a Goldwell Colour Specialist.

The young entrepreneur from Thrandeston started working Saturdays at Formula hairdressers in Diss on an apprenticeship while completing her NVQ Level 2 hairdressing training at Bury College.

When launching a jewellery business in late 2012, sisters Jenny and Sophie Laslett used some borrowed money and a spare room. After ordering a small batch from a manufacturer in the Far East, their only customers the first Christmas were friends and family.
