Shampoo and Set

Shampoo and Set

By Linda Sherlock



At the age of five, Margaret Sherlock decided to give herself a haircut with a cutthroat razor. It was the start of a lifelong obsession with hairstyling. In 1945, as a fifteen-year-old, she cycled daily to her hairdressing apprenticeship in Northern Ireland, having earned her fees by scrubbing and polishing floors. In June 1956, she opened her own salon in the market town of Chorley. Little did she realise that it would lead to a career lasting over sixty years. From Lancashire Wakes Weeks and Walking Days to the ever-changing world of hairstyling with some interesting characters along the way, life was not without its challenges. Shampoo and Set is Margaret's inspiring story and one of determination and hard work. It is proof that if you find a job that you like then you never feel that your work is done even at the age of ninety in the midst of a pandemic!
