Claires new venture Whoo! Whoo!

Hello All
This is what was in the local Coventry News Paper..... Nice picture of mother and Baby Lol.....

CLAIRE Colledge is hoping to get ahead in business after taking over the family firm which has served Coventry for more than four decades.

The bright businesswoman has invested £15,000 revamping her father’s salon – Roger’s Hair Fashions – into Chic Boutique.

Her dad ran the business in Norman Place Road, Keresley, for 43 years before he died in 1999. Her mum Sylvia took over and when her mum decided to sell up last December, Claire knew what she had to do.

“I didn’t want to see anyone else in the shop,” said Claire. “The salon is part of my childhood and I wanted to keep the business in the family.

“The place looks really modern after undergoing a complete refit and as well as hair, I will be offering beauty treatments and doing nails.

“We’ve had lots of people coming in and saying hello - some of them remembered my dad when he was here, which was really lovely.”
I am so proud of my Daughter....achieving this on her own... with me living in Gibraltar .... lots of moral support from Roy and I......
Thanks for looking
Hugs Sylvie xxxx

Lovely picture of you both, I wish Claire success in her new business venture.


Oh wow Sylvie .. .. what a small, small world!!!

Having read your post and seen where your daughter's salon is I googled the address to see exactly where it was as I know Keresley a little.

My Great Aunt and Uncle used to live there and I used to go and stay in the summer holidays sometimes.

So on googling I see the salon is just around the corner from where I stayed. They lived on Brackley Close!! Can't wait to tell my Mum when I see her later.

I wonder if I ever walked their dog past the salon!! LOL!!!

Brilliant newspaper write up and picture. I hope you didn't have to pay for your hairstyling session!!!

Love Jules xx


Great pic Sylvie! And I wish Claire every success. x

Best wishes to your daughter, I hope the business continues to grow and the mother and daughter photo and great write up :0)

Thanks for your comment on my lipstick card, the die is one I've had ages so not sure if it's still available. There is also a eyeshadow compact in the set as well, eBay is probably your best bet!
