Ex-London theatre hairdresser Peter Tuffin (47) is right at home inside his new, low-carbon salon in Long Sutton.

Hairlistics, part of the CaNeBuZo set of business units in Hoddins Way, opened about a month ago but it has already won round clients from the Spalding, Boston and Bourne areas.

Peter said: “I was doing freelance hairdressing but I was driving in Long Sutton one day and saw the sign for business units to let at CaNeBuZo.

“I gave the letting agent a call, opened on March 2 and things have been quite busy which is surprising when you consider that we’re in a rural area.”

Sharing the salon with Peter is holistic therapist Joanne Eakers and, together, they offer hairdressing for men, women and children, as well as remedial massages, facials and home-made waxing remedies.

“I’ve been in hairdressing for 29 years, including three and a half years working at Wyndham’s Theatre in London,” Peter said.

“Then I moved to the Spalding area just over a year ago and worked at a salon in the town before I moved here.

“One of my client comes down from Newcastle-upon-Tyne every six weeks because I’ve been her hairdresser for 27 years and, just like my other clients from the local area, she’s pleased with the salon.”
