THREE ENTERPRISING women are helping to further transform a former historic Mossley mill into a thriving business community.
Cosmopolitan Hair and Beauty is the latest unit to open at Weir Mill on Manchester Road.
And Samantha Collings, 27, Leah Keighley, 27 and 29-year-old Ashleigh Lee couldn’t be happier.
Samantha most recently worked in Uppermill while Leah and Ashleigh join the new enterprise following experience of the industry in top Mossley.
“We have all been in the industry since leaving school and having our own place is something we always wanted to do,” says beautician Samantha.
“These premises became available and everything else just fell into place.”
The trio launched their five-days a week operation with a special party for family, friends and customers old and new on April 2.
“Cosmopolitan is going to be unique,” says Leah. “We won’t be like anyone else.”
Fellow hairdresser Ashleigh added: “Customers will be treated more like friends. No one will be pressured. We just want to have fun.”
Cosmopolitan is closed on Mondays, open 9am-6pm on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9-8, Friday, 9-6 and Saturdays, 8.30am-4pm.
