A NEW hair salon will open up in Otley this week.

Butterfly Rose is opening on Boroughgate - in what was formerly the premises of The Gallery Hair Salon - on Friday, January 17. The building has been refurbished for the new venture which is being led by 25 year old Olivia Reeve.

She said: “I worked at The Gallery for almost five years and have been doing hairdressing since I was 14.

“I have always wanted my own salon and Samantha, who previously opened the business, came to the decision she wanted to spend more time with her young children and offered me an amazing opportunity to take over from her hard work - with Samantha carrying on working two days a week.” Butterfly Rose will hold an opening party, open to all, on Sunday, January 19.
