Hairdresser closes doors after 30 years

Local hairdressing salon "Hair Anew", described by its owner Ms Sharon Clarke as the "oldest hairdressing salon in Umina", will be closing its doors on May 28.

Manager for the last 30 years, Sharon is retiring a few months short of her 70th birthday in September.

The salon will not continue as a "going concern" due to the lack of interested buyers.

It will be the "end of an era", she said.

Sharon first started hairdressing in Umina from the age of 16 when she lived in Hornsby.

The family moved to the Coast shortly afterwards in 1967.

In her 54 years of hairdressing, Sharon said she had seen the rise and fall of the perm in women's hairdressing.

However she described herself as "old school".

"The old methods can be used to achieve the same or better results," she said.

Sharon said that gardening was her favourite pastime.

She described her garden as a "garden of memories" of the customers who gave her the original cuttings.

"The business has been like an extended family and will be sorely missed.

"I've already had a couple of tear sessions with long term customers" she said.
