A new hair and beauty salon is due to open in Kesgrave next week, a day the owner says she has been waiting for since she was a ‘little little girl’.

Vince & Co is set to open at Grange Farm from Tuesday September 20, and it will be the first business venture for 25-year-old Megan Vincent.

Megan, who lives in Kesgrave, said: “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, and I’ve been waiting for the right time in my life to do it.

“I’ve been in the industry for 10 years now, so I’ve developed enough of a following and an entrepreneurial spirit to know what I’m doing.”

Megan started hairdressing at 15 and managed to get a work permit at school, before starting an apprenticeship at 16.

She said: “I took a two-year course at a private college in town called WS Training, and then you get yourself a job and you build the clientele.”

Despite the current cost of living crisis, Megan said there would never be a good time to start a business and is confident her business is doing well.

She said, “If I can get through this, then we can probably get through anything.”

The business will operate from Tuesday to Saturday each week, with a beautician joining the team next month, and Megan hopes to recruit a student to come and work with her, as she did in her early days.

She said: “I’ve been waiting for this day since I was little.

“My mum, my aunt, my nanny are all hairdressers, so I’ve been bought off by that all my life, so that’s always what I wanted to be the end goal.

“I’m thrilled that at 25 I was able to do it on my own, in the current crisis the world is going through, and I feel very, very excited.”
