HAIRDRESSER Charlotte Bridewell is no newcomer to running her own salon but now she has made the short move across the street so she can complete her dream of having a beauty salon as well.

Miss Bridewell, 34, was just 20 when she started Diffusion in Sidmouth Street, Devizes and it went from strength to strength.

She has now moved to a much larger building on three floors and has taken on two beauty therapists to offer a wide range of treatments to keep people looking good from head to toe.

At the moment she does not offer facials but is on the lookout for the right staff to be able to finish her expansion.

Mum-of-two Miss Bridewell, who lives in Chirton, near Devizes, said: “The new salon is amazing. We have got so much more room.

“I always wanted to be able to offer beauty as well as hair and now we can. I have taken on Jenna and Paige as beauty therapists.

“They have worked in other salons and so already have a good reputation but we now just need to build that side of the business.

“I would love to be able to do facials and other holistic treatments as well but it is just about finding the right staff.

“Everyone has been very complimentary about the way the new salon looks.”

This time last year Ms Bridewell was preparing for the London Marathon which she ran in memory of her Superbike rider brother Ollie who died in a training crash aged just 21.

To mark the 10th anniversary of his death his family, including Charlotte, her parents Liz and Marcus and brother Tommy decided to raise money for Cancer Research. They raised more than £17,000 for the charity and were supported by

clients from Diffusion.
