A hair and beauty salon is using a South American flavour to help people look their best for the festive season. Ida's Brazilian Hair and Beauty Salon, in Aldiss Court, Dereham, brings a touch of Samba style to treatments.

Offering haircuts, waxing, facials, manicures and massages, the salon has everything to ensure you feel fabulous this Christmas.

Treatments include a Brazilian blow dry, which uses all natural ingredients to keep hair straighter for longer and can give a blow dry finish for up to four months.

Owner Ida Abreu opened the salon two years ago having run a mobile hair and beauty business in the area for eight years.

She says: 'Business is going really well, we are always busy.

While business has not slowed down in the build-up to the festive season, some people are already looking ahead to next year.

Ida says: 'We already have girls coming in to plan their weddings next year. They want to book in for their hair and nails and get it all planned out.

'Believe it or not, we are still getting people in for weddings in December. I have a woman coming in tonight to get her hair done for her wedding.'

Ida decided to open the salon after the success of her mobile business.

'I used to run a mobile business for eight years and decided the time was right for a salon two years ago. I live in Dereham so it made sense to be here.'

Ida's Hair and Beauty Salon, Aldiss Court, Dereham, is open 9am to 5.30pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
