A hair salon is warning other businesses to be on their guard after two young women ran off wearing robes with tin foils still in their hair to save paying a bill of almost £100.

The two women had been in All About You Hair and Beauty in High Street for almost three hours having a full weave of colour put in their hair to create blonde on top and black underneath.

When it got to the last 20 minutes of the treatment the pair made a run for it.

Salon director Mark Partridge said: “They had been going out for regular cigarette breaks. When the stylists said, right you’re ready to have the product washed off now, the young women asked if it was OK to have another cigarette.

“They went outside and took ages, which is when my staff realised they had run off down the High Street still wearing our robes and with the towels round their shoulders and tin foils in their hair.

“It’s laughable really, it beggars belief. We wanted to warn other businesses so they don’t get stung like we’ve been.

“Sadly we will now have to take credit card details or cash up front before we do any styling or colouring to make sure we are not hit again,” he said.
