Masks, temperature checks, hand sanitizer, appointments only, Track and Trace details and perspex screens were again the order of the day at the Weir Hairdressing salon in Elgin.

The salon is run by sisters Moira Mulloy and Alison Milton and it was a day for a double celebration - welcoming customers and friends back after lockdown and the 21st anniversary of the salon opening in April, 2000.

They bought the building in 1999 and converted it to a salon, which had been their dream.

Alison said: "It is lovely to see the salon busy again and people back."

Moira added: "It feels a bit easier this time than when we came out of the first lockdown, because we know what we are doing now. Last June it was quite daunting.

"This is just the new normal and something we have to deal with."
