New owner – but a familiar face

Have your say

A HAIR salon in Cadogan Road, Bury St Edmunds, has a new face at the helm as Gina Giles takes over the business from its founder Nicky Castell.

Gina, who has been in the business for 28 years, used to own Gina’s Hair in Bennett Avenue and decided it was time to return to owning her own salon.

Nicky will continue running Just Hair, in Great Barton.

She said: “It was very hard for me to let it go and I wouldn’t have to anyone else but Gina.”

Gina has rented a chair at the Bury Just Hair since August 2010 and said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be a salon owner again. I’m 44, my children are grown up and at college and I’m at a great time in my life when I can inject some time into it.”

Gina has taken on the salon’s four staff and hopes to find another senior stylist. She plans to rename it Gina Giles Hair.
