TWO talented hairstylists from a salon in Skegness were thrilled when they got the chance to work with big television stars recently.

Salon owner Katie Knights and hairdresser Charlene Godson, from Mavericks based in Richmond Caravan Park, worked on the hair of top Hollyoaks stars during the recent birthday event ‘A Night Of British Glamour’.

Both were invited to the prestigious party of Dancing On Ice and Hollyoaks actor, Kieron Richardson who is also set to attend this year’s Illumination Switch-On in August.

“We spent the whole day cutting and styling the hair of the stars of the Hollyoaks cast, other tops stars and their relatives too, it was amazing!” said Katie.

“We also got an invite to have fun with the stars at a lavish party in the evening where we also got the chance to see former top chart group Living Joy,” said Charlene.

Mavericks has been established for around three years and the girls have worked together for about a year but been friends for a lot longer.

“It was a great day and Mavericks got the chance to represent Skegness. It was great to showcase our skills and show what a top salon can offer. We managed to produce stunning hairstyles which we are delighted to have endorsed by celebrities. We look forward to the future and more opportunities to style the stars,” added Katie.

Owner Katie, who holds 19 years’ experience in the field, has gained several advanced cutting and razoring techniques over the years where she also strives to produce exciting hair designs that she feels aren’t usually offered at other salons.

“I’ve worked in a number of Skegness salons over the years and then moved to open my own business. I offer a range of different looks and love creating funky designs and quirky styles,” said Katie.

Mavericks is open Tuesday to Saturday 9am till 4pm and open late night on a Thursday till 7.30pm.
