Team can’t wait to get back to job

GLAMBOX Hair Studio owner Adele Katzke plans to get back to work "as soon as possible".

The store is gone - and all their equipment along with it - but she's not willing to let her clients down.

"We run into our clients all the time and it's emotional for them as well," she said.

"They're not just shoppers, they become part of your friendship group, your family.

"It's not just about the hair, or the nails, or the beauty, it's about that bond you've established with them."

With offers of help coming from a number of local businesses, Ms Katzke said it was "just so beautiful".

"But we still need to find out from the shopping centre what their plan is because we need to consider all our options," she said.

There are numerous other ducks to get in a row as well, with the hairdressers not just without a home but the tools of the trade as well.

"None of the hairdressers have combs, or scissors, or hairdryers - anything," Ms Katzke said.

"The suppliers have been wonderful. They're offering us extra discounts to replace our equipment."

It's just a matter of putting the pieces back together.

"We are planning a return, we just need to be patient," Ms Katzke said.

"We just need to find out exactly what's happening."

Clients can keep up to date by visiting the Glambox Hair Studio Facebook page.

The shop landline number has also now been diverted to Ms Katzke's mobile.
