An award-winning Midlands hair business has created three new jobs as its owners look to meet growing demand.

Abacus Hair, which is based in Bewdley, Worcestershire, has expanded with the permanent hires of two experienced hair stylists, alongside a new apprentice.

Abacus team – Rear (L-R) Allison Ford, Nick Ford and Adrian Arnold.                        Front (L-R) Zoe Tilley, Chloe Beard and Helena Williams

Joining the family-owned hair group is Zoe Tilley and Helena Williams. Zoe, 39, and 40 year-old Helena, can together count almost 35 years of experience in the industry.

The third appointment sees Chloe Beard joining as the firm’s second apprentice. Kidderminster-born Chloe will undertake a two-year apprenticeship programme with the 16 year-old working closely with Abacus directors Nick and Allison Ford – who say they are determined to develop the business further with the three appointments taking the team to 10.

Nick Ford said: “It’s brilliant for us to bring three new jobs to the region.

“We said at the start of this year how we were looking to advance the salon for our customers and Zoe, Helena and Chloe are a big part of that. Zoe and Helena are already making an impact and Chloe has settled in superbly. It’s an exciting time for us as we enter the second half of the year.”

The start of a busy summer period for the salon kicked-off last month with Allison being hand-picked by British Hair’s celebrity ambassador Brendan O’Sullivan to be part of a team styling over 50 models at London Fashion Week.

Allison worked for two days in the capital styling models who were showcasing the new ‘What We Wear’ brand – owned and designed by British rapper, Tinie Tempah.
