Aughnacloy native Margaret Sherlock, the UK’s oldest hairdresser, who is returning to the salon

The UK's oldest hairdresser, 90-year-old Aughnacloy woman Margaret Sherlock, says she can't wait for the coronavirus restrictions to be lifted so she can get back to snipping and curling in her salon.

Mother-of-two Margaret, who runs Hair By Margaret in the Lancashire town of Chorley, has only ever closed her salon for the births of her children Linda and Adrian and the funeral of her husband, fellow hairdresser Frank.

She opened the salon five years after moving from Aughnacloy to England to work as a nurse.
