STAFF at a village hair salon have picked up two awards at an annual hair show in Fareham.

Both the owner and manager at Wispers Hair in Wickham, were given awards at the Academy At Number 5 hair show, at Fareham’s Ferneham Hall.

Salon owner Chris Laing was given a lifetime achievement award for her 40 years in hairdressing and manager Vicki Thompson won the best ambassador award for her dedication to training and developing the salon team.

Chris said: ‘I’m absolutely thrilled with the awards that we received. It’s such great recognition for the salon.

‘I’m so proud of my staff, they are incredibly talented and they all work so hard to reaffirm the reputation that Wispers has held for many years now.’

Chris is planning a refurbishment of the salon to celebrate its 33rd year.
