Forever Hair & Beauty Salon is the creation of business partners Natalie Gorman and Jill Quinn. Yesterday the deputy mayor and mayoress Colin and Pamela Prescott officially cut the ribbon for the grand opening their new salon in East Street.

Natalie and Jill who are both experienced hair and makeup stylists also share an interest in the re-enactment scene. Natalie owns a vintage caravan which doubles up as a mobile hair and beauty salon and following on from the success of this, together they believed they could bring this concept to a wider audience by opening a traditional hair and beauty salon, albeit with their retro themed take on things.

Having being in business for just two years the pair were reluctantly forced to make the move from West Street to their new home at 28 East Street due to their previous landlord putting the premises up for sale. However, some good fortunate prevailed and an opportunity to lease the premises next door to the Old Forge Wartime House whom they have an existing relationship with, presented itself.

Besides the regular hair and beauty treatments one might expect from such an establishment they also specialise in vintage and wedding hair and makeup which is evident from becoming a finalist in the Kent Wedding Awards for two years in succession.
If you are looking for something really different you might like to step back in time and enjoy the glamour of their period vintage make-over parties which are perfect for hen nights, birthdays or fun evenings with friends.
