The idea of getting their nails and hair done in a redundant cow shed might not appeal to the cast of reality TV show The Only Way is Essex.
But that option may soon be there as planning permission has been granted to convert a vacant cow shed into a new beauty salon in Tharston.
Amanda Mills and Stephanie Adams, a mobile beautician and a mobile hairdresser respectively, got the go-ahead for their venture from South Norfolk Council last week.
The duo hope that the venue, which will provide each of them with a physical base, will become something of a social hub for their home village, which no longer has a school, a post office, or a pub.
There is no set date for the opening of the salon, which would be on land belonging to Mrs Mills’ husband, a dairy farmer.
