A BARRHEAD hair salon is making NHS staff an offer that will really grow on them...by providing free haircuts once the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.

Kevin Finnell and Brian MacMillan, who own F&M Hairdressing, have been hugely impressed by the work being done by healthcare heroes on the frontline in the fight against Covid-19.

Like all hairdressing salons across the UK, their Cross Arthurlie Street shop is currently closed as efforts to halt the spread of coronavirus continue.

However, Kevin and Brian will be welcoming NHS workers for some VIP treatment on the first Sunday after they are given the green light to reopen the doors.

Each member of the F&M Hairdressing team has agreed to donate their time to provide all cuts and treatments free of charge.

Kevin said the offer was inspired by celebrity stylist Royston Blythe, who set up the National Hair Sunday initiative in order to give something back to NHS workers.

He told the Barrhead News: “Myself and Brian are in regular contact with salons up and down the country and we were told about National Hair Sunday, which we think is a great idea.

“We put it to our team and they jumped at it.

“We are extremely proud to be part of the campaign. What will happen is that we will use our social media sites to get in contact with NHS staff so they can get involved.

“They will come in, get their hair cut and a luxury treatment and walk away with a goodie bag.

“It should be a good day and there will be people coming into the salon who we haven’t met before, so it will be a nice treat for them. It will be like a pamper day as a reward for everything they’ve done for us.”

Kevin said F&M already has “quite a few clients” on its books who work for the NHS.

“We know there are a lot of NHS workers in and around Barrhead,” he added. “The team at F&M just think this is a fantastic thing to be able to do, so we can give something back to these workers and say thanks.”
