A NEW Lochgelly business sparked into life on Sunday and things are looking up for Lauren Duff.

Lauren opened her 'Not So Basic' hairdressing salon in the town's Well Road, and has been overwhelmed with the response the move has received.

Lauren said, after the Open Day at 25 Well Road: "Thank you to everyone who came to my open day and for all the lovely gifts I received.

"I’m totally overwhelmed!! I had such a good day, however, I was feeling slightly the worse for wear after continuing the party until 12!"

Lauren feels that the 'Tap of the Toun' needs a hairdressers and that was what persuaded her to make the decision to open Not So Basic.

Added Lauren: "I hope that we are able to provide a good service for everyone and Sunday was a very busy day with lots of local residents popping in to pass on how handy this will be for them".

Lauren amazingly is fully booked out until January, however, she hopes to be able to take on more in the very near future.
